I was told that this was a must stop while in D.C.. First I had the Maryland crab soup. It states it has sausage and crab with veggies. No sausage found but the waiter said it was cooked into the soup. The soup was good but over priced. Next I had the baby bomb and it was great but also... More

Price was high, but the crab cake was teh best I've ever tasted. Standard side choices, but the sourdough bread offered at the start is good. But, the crab cakes really were fantastic.

We went for the famous crab bomb and it exploded our budget. First of all, you can get much better crab cakes at many restaurants in the area and second the price is ridiculous. The sides were just OK and the service too. We will never go back. I have no idea why people rave over this place - I'd... More

Jerry's seafood is always a great choice for seafood in and around the DMV. The crab cake, "the bomb" is awesome. All the sides are tasty too. Oh my, don't forget to enjoy the wonderful rolls and butter. Jerry's is a great place to visit for those special occasions or an evening out with that special someone who enjoys a... More

Food was plain and overpriced. Restaurant was dark. I only ate here once. It just didn't make enough of an impression on me to go back.

The bomb crab cake has always been the best I ever had and at anytime someone said that they never been; I gladly take them. But I had always been to the one in Lamhan, MD. Their crabs have no filler, bubbling hot, meaty, juicy, no shell, buttery; well balanced with flavors of Old Bay, Mayo; and other spices but... More

I stopped here for some good crab cakes and my expectations were exceeded. They were a decent size, and done just perfectly. Cost was market value, but the quality would bring me back here.

Party of six plus toddler were able to be seated within minutes of restaurant arrival on a recent Saturday evening. The crab bomb was outstanding as was the crab imperial. Our waitress was attentive to our requests. We've eaten at this establishment numerous times...often bringing out of town guests to get their first taste of Maryland-style crab cakes.

First the waitstaff 'WAS NOT FRIENDLY", acted like she didn't want to be there and the "CRAB BOMB" wasn't cooked through and it gave me Diarrhea before I even left the restaurant. The price was too high for what you get. Never going back to waste my money.

The food was sparse and rather ordinary. Service as well was simply "acceptable". We were expecting more from others' recommendations and reputation of Jerry's.
