The cornbread was amazing as always, my sandwich was perfect and the service was great. Only wish that they served the onion loaf all day on weekends. Beer was very cold.

Adam’s food is always good. I’ve eaten there several times. It’s comfortable and the staff is friendly and attentive. I’ve had the brisket sandwich and salad with sirloin steak on it. The grilled chicken wrap is also good. All of their BBQ is good and...More

I love Adams ribs. Best I've ever had. Hard choice but I skipped them for the turkey special. Lots of moist turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans and cranberry sauce. Just like Thanksgiving. Loved it.

We won't eat ribs anywhere else except Adams. No comparison. Always tender and the right amount of sauce. You won't be unhappy with these ribs. Their weekly and nightly specials are great too. Turkey and pork platters on Thursday nights. Different specials each Wednesday through...More

We had a nice lunch while in Edgewater to meet some friends. I had been there many years ago, the ribs were wonderful then; and, they did not disappoint me today. My wife had the bourbon brisket sandwich which was equally wonderful. They have 20+...More

Their ribs are to die for and we didn't expect that. They also serve this great bread and cornbread upon arriving, which is a win to me since I have kids. Some dishes are just "okay" but sides are always great. Will go again!
