The food is good, but not as great as we expect given the restaurant's reviews. Specifically, the duck was salty as expected (they even warned on the menu, which is good), but not having other richer flavors. The fried daily fish was a little bit over done in my opinion. Again, food is good, but we just had very high expectation and that wasn't met.
The environment is good, but the restroom could use some more polishing (and it ran out of paper towel).
The service is OK, but it did took a while for some used dishes to pile up on our medium-sized table before they were taken away.
We’re there for restaurant week. Excellent food!! Service was attentive but not intrusive. Left us time between courses.
Will be back!
Went here and happened to be restaurant week- will definitely be back. Perfect fried oysters, amazing velvet crab soup, and perfect chicken Marsala.
Never disappointed at Jules. One of a handful of restaurants in OC that we are willing to spend our $.
We have eaten there many times and will continue to do so. But why do they always run out of beer types. This time they only had one Miller Lite. Way to change me to ice tea and lose the continued bar tab....
Don't let the location of this restaurant fool you! It is a foodie's gem and you will be sure to enjoy an amazing meal. We started with the house salad which has a maple dressing and a roasted tomato, corn and crab soup, moved on to Oysters Rock and then shared a whole fried red snapper with wasabi mashed potatoes. Everything was cooked to perfection and the drinks were fabulous. Dessert was a vanilla bean creme brulee and the price couldn't be beat. We will be back!!
The first thing I noticed was the stunning artwork. I took 10 minutes to walk around the restaurant just to enjoy the paintings. Food was perfectly prepared and quite flavorful (crab cakes, chicken piccata). Attentiveness of our server was perfect. The icing on the cake was half priced bottle of wine on ‘ladies night’! We will definitely go again.
Everytime we come to Jules we wonder why we don't come more often. The food is excellent and is reasonable. The staff is very effecient and friendly. It was a great birthday celebration for me. Millie W
Food was good. They were out of my favorite beer and they were out of the dessert we wanted. Our waiter was excellent.
The inside appearance of the restaurant is above average BUT I can't rate Jules for Fine Dining when it has 2 TVs at the bar around which most of the tables face. Personally, it loses credibility as "fine dining" with the obnoxious sound of TV especially when it is tuned to sports. I realize that taking it out might cut down on bar type customers, but you may be losing "fine dining" customers who find they have to experience that in order to enjoy fine food. Service was OK. Service person didn't have his heart in the job - he seemed to also be the bartender. I have to say though that the menu was wonderful as was the food.
... always solid, fresh food with a creative twist
... a joy in the off-season
We loved the early bird special. Food and service were great. Excellent value. Would dine there regardless of event.
Decor perfect and tasteful. Will go back.
MY WIFE AND I HAD DINNER ON A SUNDAY NIGHT AND IT WAS EXCELLENT. GREAT ATMOSPHERE, VERY GOOD MENU SELECTIONS, AND OUTSTANDING SERVICE. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND JULES TO OUR FRIENDS.
Our waiter has the personality of a rock. Our waiter has the personality of a rock.
Small but imaginative menu with large portions. Beautiful presentation. Exquisite cuisine. We loved everything we ordered and would definitely return.
Great food...service disappointing...our server appeared 'detached'
On November 25, Jules was offering their Restaurant Week menu. The Caesar Salad was scrumptious and the Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta and Steak entrees were delicious. Service and Food are always excellent at Jules, very consistent. tables are not too close together. We typically opt for the $30/$35 before 6 Dining Option and have never been disappointed. It is an Ocean City treasure!
Delicious meal. Excellent service. Lots of parking
Pleased across the board, we'll be back...
Server, David was great
If and when you are in OC, this is a must for your to do list! OC,s is hidden gem 💎
Food was delicious! I'd recommend dinner here; however, a little on the loud side because the room is very open.
Dined on the first night (Sunday) of restaurant week and ordered from prix fixe menu. Location in shopping center storefront, large plate glass windows and tables placed right inside the front door did not meet my idea of a "fine dining" establishment. None the less, the decor was clean and modern and set with white linen table cloths and napkins. Considering that there were only ten customers at three 3 tables when we entered, and they finished soon thereafter, the meal and wait service was slow. Only one couple entered during the remainder of the evening. But this might be expected on a Sunday night in the "off season" at a beach community.
The food and its presentation was creative, well executed and flavorful. This description applies to the extraordinary butternut squash risotto, caesar salad, eggplant parmesan. The crab cake contained large pieces of crabmeat and the accompanying cole slaw was uniquely spicy.
This was the first time dining at this establishment and would return based on the quality and enjoyment of the food.
Food was good, not exceptional. We did the 3 course for $30, and a free glass of wine prior to 6 pm.. Not very crowded for A Friday night, although it is the off season. Overall pretty good dining experience.
Food was generally good although several of the sauces and vegetables were excessively spicey. Mashed potatoes that came with the soft shell crab were overloaded with wasabi. The vege/fruit compote was also too spicey.
The food is exceptional and the service is second to none! And, that's just part of what we love about this place. We always bring our houseguests to Jules, we even have a standing date with old friends who show up once a year. We celebrate special occasions, and we stop by for "early bird" at the end of a busy day. Jules is our "all around" place.
We had the fixed price menu. Amazing! Excellent choices to choose from. Great food.Plenty of food. Service was excellent. We had "Egg" as our server. Don't know what that stands for. BUT he was good. Can't wait to go back, the food was really good.
Eeeh....Jules Restaurant exceeds its grasp.
The food doesen't deliver the descriptions....the food is a little off ...I . E. The pork belly appetizer was not cold and it wasen't hot; the seard tuna had a lot of cartilage. .....
We had the Fixed Price three course meal with wine. Selection was very good for each course, the portions were large and the quality was excellent.
Excellent dinner, dessert and service!
truly incredible food. Fresh, organic, locally sourced. It doesn't have a view nor a lively venue, but the food is delicious. Thee best in OC!!!
Have been visiting Jules during every trip to Ocean City. Would not expect such great food in a strip-mall environment. The 3-course meal option is a good value. A very unique restaurant for this town.
For a restaurant in a strip mall, Jules is a gem. Service was top shelf and wine list was great. We started with the coconut shrimp appetizer which was very good. My husband had the crab cake entree which was good but not great , a bit too much filler for a high end restaurant. I enjoyed the snapper special which was the entire fish, head to tail flash fried with a hoisin type sauce. The kitchen happily switched out saluted vegetables for the wasabi mashed potatoes which appeared to be their only starch. Overall, a good experience.
Exceptional flavors and value. Thank you for your consistent delivery of fresh and flavorable creations. The prix fixe menu is always a favorite. Jason was friendly and offered attentive & professional A+ service. Jule's never disappoints!
Did not enjoy the visit.
Its in a strip mall so no view.
Server was distant and would walk away while we were still talking to him.
Appetizer and salad were good. My "medium" filet was actually rare but wife liked her entree. Dessert was ok but not great. We left disappointed.
We really wanted to enjoy Jules more than we did. The food was quite good, but our server was easily distracted. Despite having reservations our table was moved for a larger group, and it took 3 times for the restaurant to give me a proper place setting. The descriptions of the specials given by our server were very underwhelming when compared to the server for the table next to us. The food was good, but pricy and not worth recommending.
We had high hopes. We had eaten here two or three years ago and had a wonderful experience. Not to be this time. It took almost 2 hours to get our entrees. And there were no apologies from any of the staff. The food might have been good but we were so frustrated it would be hard to tell. We finally told the staff that we were ready to leave and dinner food appeared quickly. Just not kind of experience I want at these prices.
Always consistently good food & service. We enjoy the special menu & free glass of wine you get if you are seated prior to 6 pm.
We used to love this place and didn't mind paying more because the food was delicious. But this last experience we had a party of seven and did not even get drinks for 20 minutes. The food took over an hour and a half to get us in the restaurant was half empty. Then when the food came both meat dishes were completely under cooked and the pork there was nothing there. It's such a shame because we want to love it but to have a three hour dinner at seven people is just way too long.,
Absolutely wonderful. In OC it is so hard to find a restaurant that is not the shellfish hut or spaghetti palace or meat pit. Jules is a gem that could hold its own in the restaurant district of any city. Jules has a wonderful menu of interesting dishes that are well-prepared from local ingredients. Service was friendly and excellent. The dessert menu is to die for. The restaurant offers an amazing deal in its 3-course early evening prix fixe menu which offers star dishes from the regular menu plus a glass of wine for $30. I look forward to going back.
We are from Philadelphia where we have many of very fine restaurants. This is the gem of Ocean City. My wife who loves seafood said this was the best snapper she has had in her life. All she did was rave about the delicious the snapper. We will be back the next time we are in OC.
