Feels like family, but the food is better

When you go here, you feel as though you are dining with old friends. Jerry, the owner and his staff will make sure you are comfy and well fed.

Jerry, the owner, is a hoot. And a great hoot at that. But better than Jerry is the seafood. While they don't serve hardshells, you'll enjoy the local oysters on the half-shell from Patuxent Seafood of Broomes Island, freshly shucked, on site, at Jerry's. (That's 'eat'in local 'cause those oysters are from the Patuxent River, just 8 miles away). There's... More

SUMMATION: Fine dinning without the frills and ostentation. Located in a junkyard and with the ambiance of McDonalds. They do not pretend gourmet, but have warm, friendly service, and excellent dishes. Depending on when you arrive, you may wait outside a spell. Not quite southern or anything else. GENERAL: I reviewed this place 30 April 2011 (Parguera Pirate review #3).... More

Reading the previous reviews would make you think this place is absolutely the best seafood in Southern Maryland. Don't get me wrong, the seafood is good and the service is great. Jerry goes through his "routine" of greeting each guest with a hello and free samples of the stewed tomatoes (way too sweet), sautéed kale (good), and fried haddock bites... More

Our boss treated us for Christmas dinner here at Jerry's .... prices were a bit high for me, but the food was excellent. The owner was super cool, and the servers were friendly and on the ball. Did not have to wait long for the food .. very family oriented. I had a great time.

Jerry really does work the room and chat it up with his customers. After finding out it was my 1st time there they brought out samples of their sweet stewed tomatoes, kale, cream of crab soup, haddock and a fried shrimp. I've never seen this kind of hospitality. I started with the crab soup which had a curry taste to... More

I moved to St. Leonard 6 years ago and since then my boss raved about Jerry's, so I decided to try it. I love fish so I called an order in for 2 Haddock sandwiches plain with fries. The fella said 20 to 30 minutes for pickup. Arrived and paid for my order. The girl couldn't find it but told... More

Everything we ate was very good and Jerry is a character. When he finds out you are a first time diner at his place he goes out of his way to make it memorable. Food very good though you pay for it, which I don't mind for a great meal !
