Great wings

We wanted to see the end of a golf match and headed to this restaurant to try their wings and was not disappointed. The bar area was crowded and noisy but the service was still friendly and efficient. The wings were wonderful although we only tried the Original Dirty Style. I have eaten here before... read more

Decided to try a different restaurant and J. Timothy's seemed appealing. We tried the dirty wings and they were very, very good, although not super spicy (which I prefer, but I knew they weren't going to be hot anyways). I got a burger and the person I was with got a reuben. The burger wasn't bad, but the Reuben seemed... More

We arrived at J. Timothy's Taverne after a day of exploring. We were tired, hungry and without reservations. There seemed to be an awful crowd and we were given a number and told to expect a 1/2 hour wait. We stepped outside and were astonished when we were called less than 15 minutes later. Our table was cozy and comfortable... More

We jumped off I 84 for a Saturday afternoon lunch while traveling and we're delighted with J Timothy's. A varied menu had something for everyone and we enjoyed the wings "dirt style", a specialty, and the burger and buffalo chicken wrap. Friendly service with just the right level of attentiveness and easy off and on I84. Perfect!

I visited J Timothy's for a birthday and had a nice experience, aside from relatively poor service and the restaurants inability to please the customer. When I went to order I wanted a certain dish with a variety of sautéed veggies and one fried veggie. I asked if they could take out the fried veggie or just sauté it instead.... More

What few clams were in the clam chowder tasted great but this was mostly potatoes. I do not mind a few potatoes in my clam chowder but this was ridiculous and the first time I ever ordered this soup. We usually go for the French onion soup which rarely disappoints. Getting there very early on a Friday there was little... More

Love their dirt style wings! I can never go there and not have them. Great atmosphere as well. They are always busy so keep that in mind

This place is known for its wings, and they are terrific. Lots of choices of sauces, we like the mix of buffalo and bbq. Service was pleasant and efficient on a very busy Saturday night.

We were looking for someplace local to eat before catching Jurassic World at the nearby IMAX. Place was hopping and initially told an hour wait. Wife and I opted to get a drink at the bar and decide if we wanted to wait. Inexplicably, our number was called in less than 5 minutes and we were seated. Not sure how... More
