The crab bomb is the BOMB! The stewed tomatoes are so good and taste just like the ones my Mom used to make!

Dinner at Jerry's Seafood, was worth the wait the bread served before dinner was soft and warm, it melted in your mouth. I had the crab bomb stuffed with shrimp the side of broccoli was seasoned to perfection. I hope I get to eat there again on my next visit to the area, want to try the stuffed shrimp.

The seafood platter was exquisite. I especially liked the crab cake and the giant fried shrimp. My kids had the shrimp bomb. It's a pricey place. The bomb is $35 and the platters were $40 but it was very very tasty. The salad was good but I like mine cold. I would have given it 5 stars but for the... More

If you happen upon Jerry's seafood, please get the cream of crab soup. When I tell you it's good, it's GOOD. It's also very filling. I have yet to order off the regular menu because I love the fish and chips and the crab cake sandwich and fries that's served in the bar area. It's a really good price too.... More

A friend told us about Jerry's so we had to stop. Outstanding lunch. The crab bisque soup and was out of this world. Had the crab cake -- excellent, and the wife had the fried shrimp. A bit pricey but, worth it.

Went in order to try the crab bomb and had crab balls for an appetizer. The like crunchy coding and ended up ordering the fried crab cakes instead. Delicious! Everything was very good. I did find the price is a little high but I will visit again.

The spot for crab cakes back in the day, no longer the case. Grown smaller, even with the filler. Prices remain high of course.

She took me to Jerry's Seafood, Home of the Crab Bomb, and whenever i hear the name i huge smile is plastered on my face. After being seated, our waiter brought a basket of warm rolls, with... More
