Never had anything bad here, it's always good. Crab pretzels are especially good, though anything you get will be very tasty.

JAD's has great food period. Home cooked, good portion sizes, good prices, plenty of room (tables or booths). They have a wide variety of daily specials. You will not find better chicken strips anywhere. Ask for Sharon--she's an awesome server!! Just be aware that some nights they have Karaoke and beer pong and it can be pretty loud on the... More

JAD's is a good place for a good meal. Had both breakfast and dinner. Place is run down. Old needs some remodeling.

My Grandpa turned 80 and my mom booked their party room for the occasion. The wait staff was awesome!! No complaints there. The food was pretty average.

The food was sub par and the cook just didn.t get the idea of fresh, The crab cakes were just full of filler, the cream of crab was made with claw meat, and was off in taste we just sent it back.. The best thing was the waitress se was understanding and fast.

Caddyshack has g-r-e-a-t crab cakes. The best I have tasted in a while. I would recommend everyone to give them a try. They have good rockfish as well. I am not crazy about their breakfast but everything else is really good.
