This was our second visit to Solomon and our second time at Boomerang Ribs. We have been telling friends since our visit in 2012 that Boomerang had the best ribs we have ever enjoyed and we have tried plenty. The second visit confirmed our opinion.

This place is known for its ribs and fresh fish. You know you're in the right spot when it's full of locals getting their fix!

After kayaking at the Leonardtown Wharf (www.paxadventure.com), we drove to Solomons for lunch. Our server Sheila was great, the food came quickly, and it was delicious! We had a choice of 4 sauces or dry rub for our ribs - we went for the Original sauce. The cheese fries with crab dip were tasty (the crab dip could stand on... More

On Mother's Day weekend I took my family to Solomon's Island for a nice little getaway unfortunately we decided to eat at Boomerang's Original Ribs. The female server was so incredibly stupid she brought us out teaspoons to eat our soup with instead of soup spoons but she really should have brought out a garbage can for us to dump... More

Only get here once a year or so when we sail up to Solomons Island. Yes, prices have gone up a bit with the renovation but the crab soup is worth it! Ribs are fine if not award-winning. The remodel is great and they have plans to reopen the patio outside seating area. We'll be back!

Wow, Boomerangs serves great food! The crab soup is the absolute best on the Chesapeake Bay. The service is always great! Tuesday special is a half-rack of ribs with one side. The baked beans is the side of choice!!

I've been here 3 times - the last time was last month. Only reason I went here again was because I was with other friends who like Boomerangs - I was out voted. Things haven't changed for the better here - same ole food - same ole Boomerangs. I felt the ribs I ordered were overcooked and not tender at... More

Everyone was raving about the ribs, so naturally I had to make sure to try them. They were tender and decent, but not at all close to the best BBQ ribs I've had. Decent, not spectacular. The baked beans were similarly middle-of-the-road and not anything special. However, the crab cakes were very delicious and very nicely prepared and the highlight... More

Boomerangs has a new look. While it looks nice, it has the same gray and white nautical theme as both of the Stoneys in Solomons. The food is more expensive. On the menu, it is the same price. However, on closer inspection, you get less for the same price. You used to get two sides with a pulled pork sandwich.... More
