I have driven by this little rather nondescript looking place for years while visiting the area. Also I thought that since I could get ribs at home I opted for other places while there. While visiting this time I participated in a fun event called "Harvest Taste of Solomons" where you go to participating restaurants and pay a small fee... More

Husband got the ribs which were wonderful. I got a salad with grilled chicken that was quite small and it was supposed to be the large portion. No rolls or bread were offered with dinner. Also it was extremely noisy in there as the bar is right around the corner (basically in the same room) from the restaurant. It was... More

Stopped in for lunch. Steamed shimp were large. Soft shell crab sandwich was great. The shrimp basket was good. The burger was like eating a steak. Very filling. The chocolate sundae came looking like the photo. The chicken and ribs were good. The ribs had great flavor and seasoning. Waitress was very good. Kept the drinks filled, friendly and very... More

WOW, great BBQ; I love their original BBQ sauce but they have several from which to choose. Their sides are fine, with the onion rings probably the best (cooked crispy). They pour fair drinks and have a fun and proficient wait staff. Remember this is a BBQ restaurant, stay with the BBQ entrees.

We had two small kids with us and the eight year old wanted ribs. So, this place made perfect sense for us. We were quite happy with our choice. The ribs were very tasty, and the three sauces offered were all very good. We also got two appetizers, the hush puppies and the onion blossom. Again, both very good. I... More

During a working retreat in Solomons we ordered 12 carry-out lunches from Boomerangs. All of the orders were correct and hot when we picked them up. I ordered the crab cake sandwich with a side of redskin potato salad. The crab cake was mostly crab with little filler and was seasoned well. The potato salad was also tasty. I enjoyed... More

We were here a few years back and its had a good remodel. This also drove prices up. The food is good. The ribs good, the pulled pork good. The kids meals were nicely done. I would go again.
