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.

We have been to J Timothy's a number of times and have never been disappointed. Last week we met friends for drinks and appetizers in the bar area. The list of beers on tap was very good including a lot of seasonal choices. The food was delicious and the service w excellent. Last year I threw a birthday party for... More

Stumbled upon this place by accident. It's awesome. They serve upscale bar food and do it really well. Our waitress, Chantel, was really sweet and professional. Go for their world famous wings and try everything else! You won't be disappointed.

We stopped on a Saturday afternoon in early October for lunch to find the restaurant almost empty but in no time at all it quickly filled up with diners. J Timothy's is well known in the area for their wings so I really wasn't expecting much of a variety for vegetarians but I was pleasantly surprised. There were numerous items... More

Stopped here for dinner and drinks before a show and was not disappointed. We hit it on restaurant week and the special menu was great. We had an appetizer, soup or salad, main course and dessert for $20.14. The appetizers of potato pancakes and German potato salad were excellent and plentiful, the soup was just OK but I don't like... More

Known all over the region for fantastic wings, and again, they didn't dissappoint me. Crunchy, juicy, flavorful, and large. Onion soup a little bland, and they didn't melt or brown the cheese on top, just placed it there, so it wasn't stingy or gooey like melted cheese on onion soup should be. French dip sandwhich was very nice; lots of... More
