Mostly crab with a little bit of shrimp. They keep mostly the same menu, but at $35 for most entrees I would say overpriced. Quantity was good size, I left full.

This restaurant's claim to fame is the crab "bomb", which is nowhere near as devastating as the name implies. It is good, but it will not fill you, unless you load up on side carbs. Service is average; did not like that we had to ask for water refills on a hot evening. The location is unfortunate: in a shopping... More

Come here a lot and get carry out quite a bit. It's always fantastic, best seafood around! The crab bomb is the best crab cake you'll ever have! Or get fish topped with crab. It's pricey but totally worth it!

This place is overrated and overpriced. Don't pay a fortune for a crab cake here. There are plenty of places in Bowie for crabs and sea food.

Arrived on a Saturday night at 5 because they did not take reservations. 30 minute wait at the Bar. Total mob scene. Dinners are in the $35-40 range and come with a great salad as one of your sides if you choose. If crab is your thing, this is the place. Very noisy and hard to hear across the table.

I love this seafood restaurant in Bowie, Md. The crab cakes--or "crab bombs" on the menu--or the absolute best crab cakes I've ever had. Period. The "bombs" come in 2 sizes and both feature the freshest crab meat that is perfectly cooked--no filler. Prices are about $35 for a regular bomb and $28 for a baby bomb. Other seafood items... More

We visited Jerry's on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. It was touted as the best seafood in the area. We got there late on a Saturday night and were told that there was a one hour wait for a table. There were many people crammed into the waiting area, but a peek into the dining room showed... More

So my friends and I went yesterday and ate very well. Jerry's is great! However, it's going to come with a huge price. FYI They don't have a kids menu ●︿● Cream of Crab is VERY THICK The average menu item is $35+ The Crab Bomb is amazing! I ordered the Mariners Platter $40; 4 shrimps fried, 4- steam shrimps,...
