I've lived in Southern Maryland most of my life and that region is known for it's seafood. Jerry's place is the best seafood restaurant I've been to in years. As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by the most polite hostess. A few seconds later Jerry Sr. walked up and welcomed us. Prior to our dinner... More

We turned up on the off chance of a lunch time meal. We were welcomed in by Jerry himself. The specious dining room is simple with a plain table setting BUT the seafood is superb. Four of us tried the soft shell crabs, haddock, shrimp and crabmeat. All were superb and served with Jerrie's own sauces. I had the Crabmeat... More

The crab cakes are as advertised with no filler. Save room for the bread pudding. It has a unique family atmosphere. Easy to miss from the road. Look for the tire shop next door.

Wow! We've lived in this area for 2-years and just now tried jerry's. We determined that this is by far the best seafood we've had since arriving. The fish is awesome, the soft shell crab is great and even the chicken strips tasted awesome. The place has a good atmosphere, great people working there, and an awesome business. They give... More

I'm a huge fan of crab and of course i wanted to have a good crabcake. We went to Maryland looking for non-chain restaurant and find this jewel.From the outside, we thought it's a take-out place, very low profile but a lot of car parked (good sign!). When we entered the restaurant, it's totally unexpected! I love the deco and... More

Jerry's Place is a three generation run family business and dining there Your are brought to their family table . The shrimp and Haddock combo was fantastic. The sides of fries and cold slaw were very good. The sample baconed kale was a Classic in the making. The bread and butter was tops. The family was friendly and memorable enough... More

We swung by here after visiting Calvert Cliffs, and reading that this had made many top 10 lists for Maryland, we wanted to see if it lived up to the hype. Yep. The best crab cake you'll ever eat is here. If you want legitimate seafood that is extremely fresh, put this small restaurant on your list.
