J Timothy's has some of the best wings in CT. Their menu is large enough to satisfy any hungry person or family. The service is excellent and the staff very friendly.

There really are no better wings than the Dirt Wings from J Timothy's Taverne. To quote my son, "the wings are from heaven they are so good". You go for wings but you get an excellent dining experience. The Roast Beef Au Jus is excellent. My wife got the veal parmigiana special and she loved it. She is a tough... More

I really like J. Timothy's. I've been going here since I was little and it was Cook's Tavern. The food is good but not amazing -- good quality food prepared mid-to-good. I would say closer to four stars, but in my opinion a 4-star rating needs to really stand out. For instance, serving mushy beyond belief tomatoes on your burger... More

After Christmas lunch with my brother and sister and spouses. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, including salmon and short ribs for me and my spouse. Of course, I had to try the dirt wings. Honey BBQ was very good, but I would have gotten the buffalo if I'd known no one else was going to have more than one. Brownie... More

I went to J. Timothy's with a couple of friends for lunch. We love the atmosphere and all the individual rooms available in this old tavern. Although lunch was a little pricey the food was excellent. My friend and I had the salmon with fresh string beans; delicious! Our other companion had the Shepard's Pie and was very happy with... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this place. Had dinner with friends. Food is pretty good- buffalo wings were delicious and salads were fresh. Baby back ribs were tender and tasty. Reasonably priced wine and friendly service. Good place for casual dining on a Sunday.

This place is 5 stars only if u go early. U get to enjoy it when it's quiet. If you feel like you are leaving too early then you are leaving just in time! This place over the years gets packed fast. By 4pm people start coming in and seats fill up fast. They have a large variety of food... More

Historic building, great atmosphere and delicious wings. Good selections of beers. One of the best French onion soups I've had.
