Good ribs

If you like ribs, Adams will not disappoint. Nice bar and friendly service. Decor is a little tired but the food is always good and plentiful.

Limited selection, bet on their specials, tastes like real Maryland Crabs, maybe NOT according to one of their veery veteran employees ! Hit & miss changes like the weath sometimes hot sometime NOT. TOO expensive to wageer a guess or me being a frequent GUEST !

The BBQ was fantastic! The ribs were very tender and flavorful. I also recommend the pulled pork sandwich. The portions were great as well.

We often get carry out here. Our family likes half chicken and rack of ribs. The meat is soooo moist and buttery. Not too much sauce on either-the flavor is just right. Pork bbq is delicious! Portions are good sized. Service is casual and friendly. Restaurant is clean and neat. A great place to stop and get a good home... More

This place is like a Cheers. I've been going here for over 30 years. The food is always good. Nice variety. Bartender Jody is THE best. It's a locals place but I'd recommend it to anyone.

Excellent food in a "tavern ambience". I had the crab cake sandwich and my bf had the ribs all were excellent as were the Mac & cheese side and baked potato. The corn bread was soft and warm too. The fries were very average but not enough to knock them down to a 4.

We have been going to this restaurant for years. It's consistently good. We prefer the bar side seating, which was recently renovated and more TVs added. The menu ranges from sandwiches to rib platters to turkey dinners. Lots of comfort food!

Well, there you have it, RIBS. I don't sit in the restaurant much, but there in nothing wrong with that. Every two months or so, I order the takeout ribs, and some sides. The chicken is really good and we get that, so that is another great option. Their real reputation if for ribs, and it is well deserved. I... More
