Great for happy hour

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

I want to love this place but in the end they are just an average popular restaurant. They have a nice menu that just does not deliver. Probably a nice place to get some wings but in the end they are 3rd on my list for wings in Plainville.

The place was packed but you'd never know it upstairs where we hosted 30 guests for a business event. Stunning service accommodated more bodies than we had reserved for. Snug room but quiet. Bountiful appetizer selection, excellent entries. Our guests raved about the evening!

J Tim's Original Dirt Style Buffalo wings are hands down the best wings in CT. Since 1789, the imagination of George Washington, J. Timothoy's has been perfecting their craft of tavern food. And they hit the bullseye with their wings! If you are in the central CT you have to try these wings!!

Honestly, I'm a chowder snob, and this is the only place besides a specific seafood restaurant I'd get chowder. I love it. Chowder and the wings and their Cobb salad is really good.

Recent visit was wonderful! No waiting - even though it was Mother's Day. Only had a sandwich and a burger, but they were delicious. The French Dip is a good-sized portion, with a nice beef dip.(not salty as in other places) The fries were perfect - crispy and hot! The lamb burger was pleasant change of pace. It was prepared...
