Used to love this place but every year it seems to go more downhill. I think it's due to the foreign staff. They don't seem to care about customer service at all. Dirty and long wait.

My family vacations in OCMD every year and we always make sure to get dinner from JR's while we're there.

I love the ribs at J R's, but to my surprise, it was closed for repair so the sign said when I drove by. I was hoping for a nice plate of yummy ribs. I thought that the restaurants only closed in the winter for repairs...hope everything is okay and they didn't have a fire or anything...no signs of trouble... More

JR's is a great place to eat. The ribs are out of this world; the chicken is fabulous. Do not fill up on the good bread. The atmosphere and staff is good also.

Been to JRs several times with friends who love it and I found it very disappointing each time - over-cooked meats; And expensive for what they offer.

We came here for my birthday and had a pretty good time, until the food came. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't worth the price we paid for it.

The place was busy, so you have to make some allowances. But it took a long time to get menus, have our order taken, and get served. The ribs were good, though only lightly sauced. The Prime Rib was not particularly tasty. It was rather a disappointment since I'd been planning to go there for several days.

The ribs were out of this world. They were so delicious and I should have ordered a fullrack. Can't wait to go back again.
