A casual place with very good food

We went here for a rehearsal/out-of-town guests dinner. I can review the restaurant, food, but not the prices. The restaurant is casual and the service was good. I ordered the Maryland Crab Cakes. This dish was well portioned, prepared and spiced nicely. My other family members got the Filet... read more

This was a wonderful restaurant. Delicious food, great servers and good drinks. There was even a big group sitting next to us and we were well attended too. We had drinks, free appetizers and really good fish. What a neat place to eat.

JT's offered a wonderful opportunity to share with co-workers for the holiday season. Being able to have good food and fun time together was great. So glad Joe could be there.

We had a private room in the back. We started off with drinks and a salad. For entrees, we chose the Chicken Marsala and Crab Cakes. It was the best version of both dishes that we've ever had. The sauce was amazing and chicken wasn't dry. The crab cakes were superb. Dessert was Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Cheesecake. Both were... More

The atmosphere was very nice and the food was very good. My wife and I both ordered the fish taco platter as the entree. We really enjoyed it. As an appetizer, we ordered the fried eggplant and goat cheese with my wife. It tasted very good, but it was difficult to share. The only negative for our visit was that... More

very good drinks and food specials during happy hour, kind of crowded but worth the trip also for Gameday.

If you want to see any game, you can get a table and ask the server to put it on, but if you want to hear it, best sit at the bar. Decent cocktails, cherry bellini or pineapple mojito, or house draft of Broken Leg lager, go well with the pepperoni flatbread pizza, the bbq shrimp or the baked pretzel... More

I had the entree salad with grilled salmon on top. It was excellent, super fresh and the server asked if I preferred the fish hot or cold. The server was very attentive and helpful when we asked about getting around. My husband had a turkey burger with delicious fries. The food is fresh and made to order. Nice casual place,... More

This place is always dependable, good food and good service but the location, across from the Metro, makes it a bit more expensive. There are more inventive restaurants in the area but if you are looking for dependability, go see Joe.

My wife and I stopped in for a nice dinner on King Street and found a wonderful atmosphere and an excellent wait staff. The Filet and Crab Cake special was perfect and the draft beer was cold as ice. This is a must stop for anyone in the area.
