One of the best crab cakes I have every had. The mac and cheese was great too. We had a great time while visiting with our friends, whom are regulars at this restaurant. Great service too.

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. I have eaten here before and had the chicken fried steak and gravy and got really sick, so i avoided their white gravy at the party. The roast beef was pretty good and... More

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.

I went with family to this restaurant mid-week.No waiting for a table even though the place was busy. Food was served hot. I substituted a side item on my meal, not a problem. The portions are very generous. I had leftovers for 2 days. Free refills on drinks. Attentive servers. Pleasant atmosphere.
