Good food but crowded

If you are looking for a good pub atmosphere in the bar, this is the place and they have great wings and other appetizers. The dining area is fairly large and there are rooms to have small events. Service and food in the main dining area was good, service friendly and the food well prepared.

We stopped in for lunch at 2:00 on a Wed and both the parking lot and restaurant were 3/4 full. It was the perfect time to stop. As you can read in other reviews its rare when this place is not packed. The place is large and has several rooms so we were seated promptly. Our party of 3 started... More

Horrible service! We go there and we are a group of 20; the waitresses was extremely rude to us. They finally brought us our order over and when moving a water glass and drinking the water the waitress took away my fresh beer saying, "I was passing out". The whole time the waitress was extremely rude and really didn't want... More

Best wings I've ever had. My wife makes great wings; so great, I hardly eat them elsewhere. However, having spent the day in Bristol, we decided to investigate J. Timothy's reputation and take some home for dinner. Good thing too because there was a greater than 1 hour wait at 5:00. Restaurant is cool, with pubby atmosphere and fireplaces. Although... More

I am really excited to introduce you to this Hidden Hop! I don't know what I love more, sharing these places or finding When we walked in, I was immediately impressed by the rustic style of the set up. Old-timey nick-nacs, fun quotes about wine, a soft lit ambiance, a large fireplace and ample seating. Yes, I was at home.... More

We have had many family parties here. The food was wonderful, service was excellent. For dinner out, it is a great place to eat fire side or at the bar eating the best wings ever.

J. Timothy's is a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy some great food. It's the type of place where a table of bikers will sit next to a family and everyone enjoys themselves. Very American in theme and feel. a great colonial tavern vibe. The wings are a must try and a very good selection of craft... More

We stopped in at 7:40 pm on a cold Wednesday night and the place was packed! Amazed how busy this restaurant is every night. We didn't really explore the menu, just had a cocktail (so-so) and sandwiches. Service was fine, not exceptional - seemed like a good, young staff. I would love to spend some future time with the beer... More

J. Timothy's Tavern is a pleasant and busy place for lunch or dinner. The food is well prepared (but not gourmet fare) and the service is friendly and efficient.

Amazed how crowded this was on a Tuesday and understand now why. The beer selection was great and the food was all good quality.
