    We had Burke as our Server and would have to say he's probably one of the best Servers around! Out of a lot of wine I picked, but did finally end up with one that was excellent! Wine bottle prices are reasonable. Food is always excellent. A gem in Ocean City.

    We took advantage of the restaurant week special and left completely satisfied. Appetizers consisted of pork belly and mushroom soup. I had fish and my wife shepherd's pie. Both entree's were delicious. Dessert consisted of the crème brulee trio, again fabulous. The wine list provided something for everyone. We'll be back, soon.

    We had an outstanding dining experience at this little restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. We started with drinks before dinner and the waiter brought a sample of a recommended wine for us to enjoy before we ordered a glass. Very nice! The house salad was a meal on it's own - a variety of fresh, organic lettuce, and interesting additions that made a beautiful presentation. The dinner entrees we ordered were different fish selections and all very tasty without being too salty (the crab cakes were outstanding). Each dish came with different sides that were the perfect addition each meal. This was a refreshing break from the typical noisy, crowded beach restaurants.

    Every time we visit Ocean City, we have to dine at Jules Restaurant. My boyfriend had the fois gras and the soft shell crabs. He loved both! I started with their blue ice wedge (which is my go to starter). My entree was a special - sesame encusted wahoo..OMG. Outstanding. We tried a 2008 Napa Cabernet, Maldonado. It was a really great Napa Cabernet that we plan to find! The waiter told us "see you next year." And yes he will! If this restaurant was local, I'd be there every week.

  • O.C.'s Best Early Bird
    Derwoodsman
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    The early bird prix fixe dinner at Jules' Restaurant has to be the best dining experiences in Ocean City. For $30, diners are treated to a three course dinner and a complimentary glass of wine in lovely environs. For a starter, my fried oysters' crunchy panko breading offset the succulent small oysters, and my iceberg lettuce wedge was topped with blue cheese dressing, smoked bacon, and candied walnuts for loads of delicious crunch. My fish-of-the-day entree was grilled amberjack on a bed of melon salsa accompanied by a spicy vegetable medley. My wife loved her crab soup, house salad, and a shrimp scampi that she said was different, and better, than any other she's had. All in all, a really surprising dining experience at the beach.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    We saw that if seated before 6, they had an early bird special of 3 courses + 1 glass of wine for $30. Our server brought out fresh baked rolls and soft butter. They were hot and delish! There were 6 appetizers to choose from, and we both selected the local fried oysters which came out crispy and hot. I had the Wedge with bleu cheese, applewood smoked bacon and crispy walnuts. It was wonderful. My husband had the "Hail to Julius Caesar Salad which he enjoyed. We finished with the Fish of the Day which was Amberjack, served with a fruit salsa. We did enjoy our visit. Go for the early bird special because the meal will be much more expensiver after 6 p.m. Amberjack was $29, the appetizers were $15 and salads $10. We will go back (before 6).

    The view is so wonderful at sunset that it is hard to concentrate on anything else. The cherry and cheddar salad is amazing and a really nice drink list. The vegetarian option is not so great. I got the standard portobello with something in the middle that was simply okay. I know that a vegetarian request throws many places off so I understand. I do get tired of having a portobello so much while traveling.

    All tables were not full but the kitchen seemed to have a backup. Our server was not attentive enough; however, the host/server assistant was very energetic and helpful. Our server lacked in communication skills and keeping us updated on our wait time but did apologize when he finally brought the dinners out. Previous experiences at this restaurant have been excellent. A little disappointed this time.

    We had never heard of Jules. It's located in a strip mall. So, we had no idea what we were in for. Entering, Jules, we were pleasantly suprised buy the beautiful ambiance. The decor was high end and the people very friendly. We ate at the bar, as we do in most restaurants. The service was amazing. The menu was perfect. They had many specials to choose from. All food was made in house. We got the tomato soup, the caprese salad and filet mignon dinner. Everything was so delicious. Overall our experience was perfect. We will be back to Jules and recommend it to all of our friends and family who travel to OC.

    The food was excellent- from the rolls, salad, steaks,pasta dishes, chicken Marsala - there were no complaints from any of the 9 people at our table. But when you pay prices that seem higher than most Fine Restaraunts in the area(which we don't mind), you deserve to be in a setting that is special. Jules could use a Designer to help with that.

    Tucked back in the Food Lion shopping center, Jules easily is one of the hidden gems on Ocean City. My family dined here on Friday using OpenTable (one of the few OC restaurants that are on here). We were seated immediately and service was excellent. We had a mix of martinis and wine throughout the night -- great wine list. The appetizers (pork belly and fries green tomatoes) were unreal and our entrees put all our other meals that we had that week to shame (we had dined at Liquid Assets and Catch 54). DEFINITELY dine here at least once during your OC vacation; we know we are going to make it an annual staple and we are looking forward to our next meal already!

    We go to Jules whenever we're in Ocean City. It serves food at a consistently high level. On this visit. our service was particularly good as our waiter went out of his way to make sure the food met my needs in terms of not having meat ingredients. He came to our table before our entree was served and told me the rice had chicken stock and that I might want to substitute mashed potatoes. Service like that is greatly appreciated. In addition, the early bird is one of the best deals in Ocean City.

    This was our first trip to Jules and it was great. The food was awesome and the service was great as well. Our water glasses were filled immediately as soon as they were empty and the dishes were removed promptly when we were finished with them. The creme brûlée was to die for. That is my go to dessert and it was the best I have had anywhere. Definitely a must when in OC.

    Half empty restaurant at 830 on a Saturday night in Ocean city, friend ordered salad and 2 appetizers for an entree, scallops were cold and she didn't eat, upon asking for bill our waiter noticed and offered to take off bill. Bill came, still on, he said we would take care of and came out with cold scallops in a to go box, Told us owner said they were fine and you were too slow eating and they got cold, too bad for you. Owner then came out raising voice stating they cost him $20 a pound and what could he do with them now. It was the first and only time I was ever accosted in a restaurant in 40 years! Would recommend never going there! It was so uncomfortable for us and the tables around. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO JULES!!!!!!!

    First time at Jules. Good (not great) food, surprisingly nice atmosphere in a shopping center location, but with questionable service. Our waiter didn't remember all the specials (which we heard other waiters describing to other tables), ignored empty bread baskets and water glasses, and just generally seemed out of it most of the time. I had the lamb and while it was tasty, I was disappointed with the small portion (4 small chops, about 2 bites each.) My wife had the duck, which was quite good and a much better portion as well. Overall, not a bad place and Ocean City certainly needs more fine dining restaurants for my taste, but they just need to tighten up some details...and hire some qualified servers.

    Our night at Jules was outstanding. We had friends in from Philadelphia and wanted to take them to someplace special, it was a great choice. Fried green tomatoes, lamb stew, cream of crab soup for apps. Salads, Filet, chicken Marsala , crab cakes were fantastic, great service and atmosphere. We had a wonderful dining experience. Make reservations, it will be the highlight of your summer.
