“Great Food, Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Some of the best ribs you will find on the Eastern Shore. They also have a decent crab cake and offers a comfortable welcoming environment.

“Ate here a few different summers and was never impressed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Food isn't so great and there aren't many side options. We used to try it every summer until we got tired of giving them a chance. There are SO many other great places to eat in OC!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We ate at J-R's on a Sunday afternoon. They had NFL games on and gladly changed the station of the closest TV so we could watch a game we were interested in. The food was great, as was the service. My husband had the ribs and I had crab cakes; both were fantastic.

Our only complaint was their selection of beer on tap...mostly light pilsners (i.e., Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc.) and 1 or 2 others like Sam Adams Lager and Yuengling (pilsner). For people who like IPAs or amber ales (like us), you'll be out of luck.

“Ribs were good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had the 1/2 rack. The ribs were tasty, no fat, moist but not wet. Service was good. We had the crab toast, not so good. The crab was fishy tasting. We eat crabs on a regular basis and this crab was lacking. I am very picky about my bake potatoe and theirs was a very pleasant suprise and was good. Our waitress said they are cooked that day and kept warm. Hubby's french fried wedges weren't bad but I'm glad I didn't order then. The homemade applesauce and bake beans were very good. He had soda and I had tea. Cost of dinner was $52.00 before tip. This place didn't wow me but it was good and we'll be back.
