This is one of our favorite "go to" restaurants for a consistently good meal at a very fair price. The value is always there and the Ribs are the best outside of Texas!!!

This place is a popular local favorite, and with good reason. Service is friendly and efficient, prices are reasonable, and the food is consistently very good. I haven't yet tasted everything on the menu, but I can recommend the ribs, the burgers, the Buffalo chicken, and the chili. There are also daily specials, and my favorites are the meatloaf, and...

Valet at our hotel suggested this restaurant......saying the steaks were just as good as other restaurants in the area with 3x the price.......& he was right! Crab cakes, tuna, salmon were also delicious! Waitress was extremely nice & helpful.

Always looking for great beer, I was floored to find Kona pipeline porter on the website for this establishment as I have not been able to have one for years since Kona (Hawaii) stopped distributing this in the mainland. So first I called to make sure this was not just lingering on the website from days gone by and sure... More

If you're a rib afficionado, you will be in hog heaven at Adam's. The ambience is comfortable, slightly noisy and nothing fancy. But the ribs are superb. I"ve also tasted some of the other barbecue dishes, all of which are very good. There is a noisy bar section. So, if you want to have a conversation with your seatmates, try... More

Ribs are always good here. Was disappointed by the serving size for the side dishes (baked beans was around a cup). Otherwise good

Wonderful barbecue! The chicken and ribs just fall off the bone! Amazing!!! Good prices, too. Small menu though. Still,if you're in the mood for barbecue and corn bread, this is the place to go!

Cooked medium rare, actually could not bite into the meat. Some of the toughest meat I have never eaten. And very rushed service (didn't get through 1/2 of app before main was served). I have noticed some quality problems in the past, but this sealed the deal. Too many medium priced fare options in annapolis to waste you money here.

The people are friendly, the staff is attentive, the atmosphere lively. The food is terrific, that's the bottom line. However it is a bit on the spendy side. The strip mall it is in is so-so but once inside, it's actually quite homey.

Best ribs you'll eat. Baby back ribs are tender and charred just right. Salads are good too for those watching their weight.
