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!

J Timothy's straddles that line between neighborhood pub and a fine dining experience. Gather with your friends in the pub or colleagues in the dining room.....you can do it here. Both are very good!

Food not worth the wait. Bad experience from start to finish. Not worth the wait for food -- if you want to grab beers with the guys then this could be your place but you will probably wait a while!! Not returning...

I had the best mussels here. The sauce they were in was delicious and the mussels were cooked perfectly. I then had to use the nicely toasted garlic bread to sop up the yummy sauce. I also tried the Cheddar Ale soup which was rich but sooo delicious. They also have a wonderful beer menu. They have many beers on... More

Great place as evidenced by the wait on any given night. Call ahead for reservations if there are enough in your party or wait for a table upstairs. First come first served and it is generally shorter than the wait downstairs if you have a small party. Awesome martinis, great selection of craft beers and solid pub menu with some... More

We were looking forward to having dinner at J. Timothy’s as we were going to the movies and arrived early so that we could find a seat in the bar area. I ordered a hamburger with the lettuce and tomato on the side and wanted the sautéed peppers and sautéed onions on my medium burger with a toasted roll. What... More

The pub area was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly. This was a nice place to stop in and have lunch. The wings were great. Definitely will make this a regular stop.

This is one of the best American food restaurants I have eaten in in a long time. Service excellent - food superb. Wish I lived closer so I could get there more often. Shrimp and Andouille Sausage - to die for.
