Consistent and Friendly

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.

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

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

I grew up in Edgewater with the Original Adam's. It has always been the go-to place for BBQ. Now living on the shore, I was very exicted to see one open its doors in Kent Island (Chester). Everything is still as great as the Original. I will say, I definitely miss the Onion Loaf from the Edgewater location. Kent Island... More

Food was good, not great. I had the pulled pork sandwich with the house BBQ sauce. It was good, not outstanding. Other people had ribs, steak and specials of the day. We also had the onion loaf which is a rectangle shaped mass of fried onions. Needless to say, it was good. Also had peanut butter pie for dessert... It... More

We were seated right away. Service was very good. I wish I did not have to say this but, the ribs where nothing to write home about. The ribs arrived dry. You can add sauce to them if you wish. They were tender but flavorless. Their barbaque sauce is boring. Having had good ribs the week before near by I... More
