Had the hangover burger with onion rings. Delicious. Jebbys is consistently good. Amber is the best waitress. Chicken pot pie is delicious.

All their food is homemade, tastes great, chicken pot pie like you *wish* your mother used to make, plus the homemade fruit cobblers are wonderful! Jebby's is an institution in Hampstead. Known for their southern cooking, this is the real deal. But the menu changes...with whatever is fresh or locally available. Sometimes they have like a corned beef day. Lots of dishes with corned beef, including an amazing corned beef hash. Or sometimes it's oyster season. Of course they always have fried green tomatoes, low country spring rolls, and shrimp 'n' grits. And real southern fried chicken. Lots of American-style dishes, too. Excellent burgers, steak 'n' cheese, great slaw, onion rings to write home about, and the Hampstead 2-fer is two hot dogs--a real nice change of pace. We go here a lot, and we take out-of-town guests here a lot, and Jebby's never disappoints. *I'm* just disappointed that it took me so long to (finally) write a review. Rated #1 in Hampstead because it really is the best place to eat in Hampstead.More

Nice service. The food came out quick. The spinach and blackened shrimp salad was excellent. The prices are very fair. The restaurant is clean and waitress staff is very friendly

We are in town for the weekend and wanted to grab some lunch so decided to try jebbys. It was great! Our burgers were delicious, best I've had in a long time. The fries and onion rings were great too. I got one of the...daily special drinks, white Russian, and it was delish! Our server was awesome and super welcoming. We enjoyed chatting with him about the area and he was great with our kids. Best lunch of our trip and we will be back!More

Great food; prompt courteous service; reasonable prices and portions. We have been a few times. I like to visit a place several times before reviewing and they have been consistent. Especially in these times we like to patronize our small businesses, and Jeby’s is worth...our $.More

Food is good and we’ve loved it over the years. However, the wait staff, bar staff and cooks do not wear masks in the time of covid. Very sad we can’t go back.

Great food and service. Highly recommend the seafood platter blackened and getting cheesy vegetables. Waitress was highly attentive and food was simply delicious. Clear why it is #1 in Hampstead.

Placed a take out order 25 minutes ahead and still had to wait an additional 26 minutes upon arrival. None of the staff were wearing masks. The two fried appetizers were cooked in burnt grease and had a bitter taste. The food is usually excellent...but this time was very disappointing.More

The food is good, but you don’t get enough for the price. We tried it twice & had 6 different meals. Also there are no substitutions.

Sort of a small sports bar with a hidden agenda.....to sneak in some of the areas best prepared food. Excellent spot for a late lunch or early dinner. We almost always order the daily special for that day. Never been disappointed. Small, but friendly folks...who know good fresh and flavorful food. Wait staff well experienced, and they really take the extra effort to ensure you are satisfied with all phases of your meal. Darn Good Food, Darn Good Folks.More

Simple building with a local bar/fish camp feel. Tried the fried seafood platter with shrimp, catfish and oysters. Each tasted great, nice portions, and tasty sides. Cornbread was so so. Everyone in our party liked their food. Service was attentive.

Service was great, considering the place was packed and people waiting for a table or counter space. Food was very good. Always something new on the menu to try. Not a lot of healthy choices, but salads are good. Burgers are always good. My husband...had the chicken pot pie - creamy and tasty.More
