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

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

We came here for family dinner on a Saturday evening. There were 9 of us and we were served right away. There was something on the menu for everyone's tastes. The daily specials are always a good option. Our table ordered the crab cakes, salads, soups, chicken pot pie, cold salad trio platter and an order of spaghetti and meatballs... More

Jennings Cafe, in the center of Catonsville, always has food. The servers are always happy to see you. If you go for lunch, you'd better get there early as it is hard to find an empty table around that time of day, whether it is a weekday or weekend. The crabcake sandwiches are great and the clientele are friendly. You... More

We visited it between lunch and dinner. I had a cheesesteak sandwich, which was pretty decent. It was a good value, decent size for the money. But more importantly, it tasted pretty good. When we come back, we'll definitely go there. again.

We had dinner at the Jennings Cafe. My meal was a crab soup and crab cake -- OK, I live in the Midwest and like good crab when I can get it. The food was excellent. The setting was clean and tidy. It felt like a family restaurant, but also had a well-stocked bar and had a bit of a... More
