Went with a group of 6 on a Friday night. I was glad I called ahead because the place was packed. The service was excellent! We had an older woman as our waitress and she was amazing. Check the board for specials. Good seafood! Our group enjoyed the crab cakes, Greek salad, crab pretzel, raw oysters. My Dad got a... More

Local place where you always see people you know. Friendly service and good food. Love their coconut cake that is home made like all of their desserts.A special treat once in a blue moon but worth it! recently tried their fried chicken. It takes longer because it is made from scratch. But if you have the time, it is well... More

This is a neighborhood bar/restaurant. If you're from Catonsvile you may know some of the other patrons. The menu is a mixture of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, pasta and check the board out for daily specials. The staff is very friendly and if you go there frequently, know what you like to order. If you have a big group, you need... More

OMG. Three days later we are still talking about how absolutely terrible that soup was. Over salted. Thick and gluey. Tasteless. I had no discernible crab at all, except for the shells. My daughter was very happy with the hot chocolate she ordered, and my husband's beer was fine, but I would not go back there. Ever. Kind of pricey,... More

Stopped in to Jennings for dinner after a long day. The waitresses were nice, fun, and paid good attention to us. The food was good.

We were able to pick our own table on a Monday evening. The place was about 80% full. (Expect to wait at the same time on a Friday or Saturday.) We had an out-of-town guest who want a crabcake and it just happen to be the weekly $5 off crab cake sandwiches and platters that night--perfect. They were authentic Maryland... More

Have not been here in a few years, but let's just say, if you like 60s cooking and Wonder bread, you will ike Jennings.

We stopped here on a Friday night on a whim. There was a couple coming out that highly recommended Jennings. We went in and sat at the bar. We were in the mood for pub food and ordered fried mushrooms, zucchini, and poppers. All were very tasty and NOT GREASY at all - which surprised us both! Prob the best... More
