We were in town camping and decided to give Boomerangs a shot. When you walk in, the restaurant is very plain and has a hometown type atmosphere. A number of people in our group ordered drinks and they were very nice size and all enjoyed them. Most of us ordered ribs or a rib and shrimp dish. I'll tell you... More

We are locals and enjoy Boomerangs very much. This is one of our go-to restaurants. The service is always great and the food is consistently good. They have nightly specials during the week. Our favorite is their rib special every Tuesday night. We love their cream of crab soup. You will pay much less to eat here vs. in Solomons... More

A small, popular family restaurant consisting of a small dining side with booths/tables separated from a small bar side with additional bar table seating. The fried haddock was good, as was the side salad and the freshly made mixed berry cobbler was amazing. The pork BBQ sandwich was average. The service was very efficient and friendly. We will return.

Good place to eat if you're hungry for ribs and/or a good burger. Billy E needs to eat MY crab soup-- SERIOUSLY--and I'm from VA--LOL!! Wouldn't go here specifically for crab soup but a good burger and ribs, yes. And YES, I will gladly accept a challenge any day for the crab soup -red AND white! :)

Boomerangs offers the best cream of crab soup we have had on the Chesapeake Bay. Top that off with their original recipe rack of ribs and you have a great combination. You know the food is good when it gets real quiet while eating. You are always welcomed by the staff as well as the locals at the bar. Bottom... More

Our first visit has been very good. Can recommend the ribs and crab cakes. Topped dinner with a wonderful bread pudding. We are glad we found them early in the season, we will be back. PS. If you like 70's music this is your place to relax.

After living in the area for six years I decided to try boomerangs. I sure have missed out! My husband and I shared ribs with original bbq, old bay wings, cream of crab soup, onion rings, potato salad and coleslaw. Everything was very good. There are options for bbq sauce but the original was perfect. Apparently the restaurant has been... More
