Two adults, two kids. No complaints. There was really nothing that we could find fault with. Crab Dip was REALLY good. The bread was REALLY good. My 12 year old said the burger was the best she ever had. Everything was good right down to the applesauce that came with the kids meal.

We came here based on a recommendation from a local. Glad we did! My husband had the ribs, I had the chicken. Both were very good! Came with your choice of 3 different bbq sauces. The sides were also good and homemade . We especially enjoyed the side salad which was fresh, nice greens with homemade dressings. Although some may... More

Listen to me people: it's easy to make "fall-off-the-bone" ribs. There's no trick to it; you simply overcook them and this is the case with Boomerangs (and to be fair most Southern Maryland BBQ joints, Adams Ribs up the road is the same). There is no discernible smoke flavor (and no smoke to be seen from the building; should've been... More

Upon walking in there was a sign saying "Please Seat Yourself", which was not unusual as it was a fairly slow Monday evening. The first thing I noticed was the sound, or lack thereof. There was music playing, but in another room, so the dining area had a weird muffled feeling. Overall, I think the building could use some updating... More

I guess we expected something different....we really WANTED to like this place. It's easy to get to and the waitress was very friendly. But the atmosphere was more like a school lunchroom than an intimate restaurant, and the food left MUCH to be desire (as a matter of fact, we had to fix another dinner when we got home because...

I live p/t around the corner from Boomerangs but never visited them before. We were having company over and ordered 6 slabs of ribs which were very well received indeed. They have a house sauce which is on the sweet side and we ordered their Kansas City style sauce which is smokey. Really enjoyed the ribs and the service..

On the positive side, the wait staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was average. The menu unremarkable. The building/atmosphere quite a few decades past it's prime. I am wondering about the wonderful reviews as this is not a restaurant I will be seeking out in the future, about as exciting and remarkable as white rice.

What a surprise! We visit Solomons often and always end up less than thrilled with the seafood restaurant choices. A friend said to try Boomerangs for seafood, said they had the best cream of crab soup in the area, and they were right! We also tried the hand breaded shrimp and jumbo haddock sandwich, both were awesome ( you could... More
