I had the ribs and my wife order the crabs the food was cold we... More

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.

Love the ribs and the chicken, I never leave hungry! I always want more that my stomach can handle! It's a must stop for us, service is always good!

From order to delivery 2 orders of simple eggs took 40 minutes. Server pleasant but we had to go find her to give order. Home fries were cooked more like potato chips.

My husband and friends traveled to OC Maryland this weekend for the Spring bike rally. We decided to eat at JRs for dinner. The place is large with lots of seating. We had a party of 8 and we were quickly shown to a large C shaped booth table with chairs. A new waiter was shadowing an experienced one. He... More

Not spectacular, but very good ribs. Good full menu, likeable servers and moderate prices. A large place, and usually heavily patronized from mid-afternoon thru dinnertime.

We arrived in Ocean City the other day to discover that the JR's Ribs at 131 St., which changed management a couple of years ago and did some re-modeling, is no longer here. The space is now being re-modeled into an "Asian Buffet." The JRs at 61 St., which I think was separately owned, remains in business.

After traveling all day and realizing there was not much open due to our being there in the off season we decided that a B-B-Q sandwich would do the trick. We stopped in and was seated immediately. There were about 4 other families in the restaurant. We ordered two B-B-Q sandwich platters and were told "sorry we are out of... More

Went to JR'S for a birthday dinner with my family. We had passed by it multiple times and the birthday girl wanted ribs so we thought we would try somewhere new. The meal came out, the waiter asked if we were okay.We said it looked good and started eating. We were encouraged to order the tilapia, told it was the... More
