Welcome to Jerry's Seafood!

A little about us.

For more than 35 years Jerry’s Seafood has been serving the Washington D.C. Area with its signature trademarked dish The Crab Bomb™ Jerry’s is known for other delights like their homemade soups, crab cakes, fresh fish, Grandma Gainey’s stewed tomatoes, her coleslaw, and the Mariner’s Platter.

The idea of Jerry’s Seafood started in 1981 when the first store opened in Seabrook, MD then owned by Jerry Gainey and partners. Jerry’s Seafood has always been a small family owned and operated business and still continues that tradition today. In 2003 Jerry sold the business to Philip Gainey (Jerry’s nephew) and his business partner Jason Lee. They continue to carry on the family business, its traditions and build on its legacy. They buy local when possible, only buy quality products and continue to stand behind the motto, “If it’s not right, we will make it right”. Jerry's operates in Bowie, MD where Philip and Jason opened this store in 2008.

Jerry's Seafood has been the subject of several favorable articles in local newspapers and magazines as well as being mentioned on local TV and radio stations. Jerry's focus is on outstanding service that goes above and beyond what people would expect. According to Jerry's customers, "Jerry's is the place to be if you're a local mover or shaker, or if you just love great food". We are confident that you will enjoy a wonderful dining experience.

Jerry's does not take reservations, it has always been first come, first served. You will want to get there early or get there late because most of the time in between you'll have to wait in line. The wait is always worth it and you'll look forward to coming back. All of Jerry's menu items are available for reliable carry out and selected items are available for online ordering.
