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

We had a family get together at this place, known for its ribs. And the ribs were very good indeed. Sides of beans and 'slaw completed the typical meal for several of us, washed down with a few cold beers from the extensive beer list. Others had crab cakes and another had salmon. All in all it was a very... More

We thought everything was about average. There is not much more I can say about it. Did not even see ribs on the menu, but we were there for lunch.

Recently joined our friends from Annapolis at one of thier favorite local restaurants and had a great meal and lots of fun. We sat in the dining room and not the bar which was crowded with the TV watchers. We had a huge comfortable booth. Of coarse, the baby back ribs were tender and delicious, but a surprise treat were... More

We love going to any of the Adams restaurants. They have all been consistently good. We think they're ribs are the best. We've tried ribs in different states and Adams is right there on top.

Their baby backs are good, sometimes their cooking can be inconsistent. We have had some great experiences and some not so good, where some food was cold and some burnt. Their place in Sevena Park is better
