The wings here are really good. The only wings that we have had that may be a bit better is Duff's in Buffalo NY. We have had both the original style and dirt style. We liked the original better, but will try the dirt style one more time. We have always ordered take out and are order has always been... More

A place worth passing through if in Plainville or anywhere near. Wings very good as well as calamari. Had the BBQ ribs - falls off the bone as expected. Good portion size too. Would recommend the chilli glaze too.

We arrived late in town on way to drop off our son at Trinity and we were staying in Plainville at the Marriott Fairfield Inn just down the road from J. Timothy's . BTW - the hotel is new, clean, and well priced. We tried J. Timothy's as they served dinner late in the bar area (full menu). Food and... More

History: One in person visit. Two "take out" visits. I've only had the "dirty wings" so Im not able to comment on anything else. Apparently 'dirty wings' are fried, then flavored, then fried again (twice fried?) which helps develope a crispy flavored crust over the wing. The result is a flavorful, slightly crispy wing/drumette. Its more of a subtle improvment... More

We visited this hopping place once again on a visit to Connecticut, and it was just as great as we remembered. Even though we arrived around 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon, the place was so packed even the basement dining room was open (along with the second floor). Service was a bit slow as a result, but the burgers and... More

First, J Timothy's isn't the best choice for quiet anything. It is noisy even when it isn't busy. They don't serve sandwiches - only burgers, wings and steak sandwiches. I had an onion soup and a side of onion rings. The rings were cold and the soup while hot wasn't brown. Had to send them back. The waitress Diane was... More

We've been here twice in the past month and they were completely different experiences. First one was horrible food, long wait and in a super busy section of the restaurant. The second visit was great food in a quiet corner of the restaurant. If we didn't already have the 2nd visit planned with friends, we wouldn't have come back.

I stopped at J. Timothy's while on business travel and tried their buffalo wings. These are hands down the best wings that I've had. One other visit I tried to the chicken pot pie as well. It was very good but the wings were better. The place is popular and gets crowded fast so go early if you're looking for... More

I was with my co-workers and had an awesome lunch. The taste was great! I didn't get a chance to try any of the beers but, it appears it's a great selection. The fries were good and the service was great! Try it for lunch if you are in the area!
