This used to be my favorite restaurant in Edgewater, and it pains me to write this review. We've noticed a steady decline in the quality of Adam's food and service over the last couple years, as prices continue to climb, but last nights experience was downright pathetic.

Although we eat-in at the restaurant, our favorite thing to do is get some ribs at the carryout counter and go home to eat ribs and chicken and watch a movie. On the last two occasions, we found that the ribs had almost... More

While working on my son's boat, we stopped in and had lunch. He had the pulled pork with the vinegar based sauce, which he said was very good. I had the Bourbon Beef Brisket sandwich - fantastic amount of brisket and lightly sauced. Great sandwich. Good amount of fries and slaw. Real good prices for the amount of food. Good... More

Usually I get the ribs when I go, I did get the Steak, on Wednesday, when it is the special. Not bad, pretty good, with a potatoe and salad. They have a good variety of food. Something for everyone
