Mediocre food at high prices

My husband and friends traveled to OC Maryland this weekend for the Spring bike rally. We decided to eat at JRs for dinner. The place is large with lots of seating. We had a party of 8 and we were quickly shown to a large C shaped booth table with chairs. A new waiter was shadowing an experienced... read more

Not spectacular, but very good ribs. Good full menu, likeable servers and moderate prices. A large place, and usually heavily patronized from mid-afternoon thru dinnertime.

We arrived in Ocean City the other day to discover that the JR's Ribs at 131 St., which changed management a couple of years ago and did some re-modeling, is no longer here. The space is now being re-modeled into an "Asian Buffet." The JRs at 61 St., which I think was separately owned, remains in business.

After traveling all day and realizing there was not much open due to our being there in the off season we decided that a B-B-Q sandwich would do the trick. We stopped in and was seated immediately. There were about 4 other families in the restaurant. We ordered two B-B-Q sandwich platters and were told "sorry we are out of... More

The meal came out, the waiter asked if we were okay.We said it looked good and started eating. We were encouraged to order the tilapia, told it was the... More

Charged us full price for his meal. The other 4 diners we ordered were very small portions. My bloody mary was good but the... More

This was a wrong choice for Dinner with the family. Very dated and unpleasant atmosphere, the people was nice but instead of a restaurant the food was served like we were at an after hours Diner. Other than that the prices were the same as if we had went to a fancy restaurant, I am writing this review because I... More

If you want a great family restaurant where you can get some great ribs and chicken or even some good seafood (if your not tired of all the great seafood in OCMD) , make sure you check out J-Rs!!!
