It seems every other seafood restaurant has the best crab cakes. I have been disappointed many times. Not at Jerry's Place. Don't let the location next to a tire store fool you. Trust your taste buds and the crowds waiting to get in. Samples are brought out while you wait and again to first timers when they are seated. We... More

From of the looks of this place on the outside you were never guys how Excellent the food is. The lightly breaded calamari was the Best we have ever had anywhere in the US. The soft shell crab was, according to our two guests, the best they,d had in MD or VA. The haddock appetizer was so delicious we all... More

New to the area, and we are used to Florida Gulf seafood, so we had not really found any locally that we thought was worth a second try...until we tried Jerry's. My husband went reluctantly for my birthday because I wanted the crab cakes. He's not a big seafood eater, but they had salmon, so he ordered that. After getting... More

This is a small, but very friendly Restsurant and the food is excellent. They have very fresh oysters that are huge. The owner and his son welcome diners and make sure everyone is happy with their meals. They have fresh catch selections as well as MD crab cakes and scallops. Their kale is excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Best crab cakes, very fresh oysters, kale is the bomb and the owner Jerry is the MOST hospitable and gracious restaurateurs I have ever met. Highly recommend this little restaurant. Only open a few days a week but well worth the wait. Didn't have my brand of whiskey on my first visit so he sent one of his staff to... More

Jerry's is wonderful for many reasons: the food, 1st & foremost, is always tops. They know their way around all kinds of seafood: you will be happy whether you love crab, fried fish,raw tuna, or oysters on the half shell. And don't forget the sides: homemade applesauce, cole slaw, best kale I've EVER had in a restaurant. The people who... More

The staff are friendly, this is a small though busy neighborhood restaurant with... More
