Good food but pricy

The food is very good, but it's expensive. Good for a treat, but a bit pricey for frequent visits. We were here for a party and they had a special room just for us. It was perfect for our event.

This restaurant has pretty lo quality food except for its dirt wings. The cost for a meal is up there but when it arrives one sees that it is well below what you are paying. i would recommend another restaurant which doesn't water down the drink and has a more reasonable price for the food offered.

Stopped on a Wednesday evening. Place was packed, especially in the bar. We had no wait and were escorted to a tiny room with table for two. Very private and romantic. No distractions. There are many different sized dining rooms. Also and upstairs and downstairs. I had a sangria, a bit too sweet for me. My husband and I both... More

3pm lunch for 2 Place was relatively Quiet and that means more time to enjoy yourself and your date. You can hear each other and not shout over a loud crowd. We enjoyed the *French onion soup - bowl size hearty and rich full of onions it was very good. *Classic burger with pulled pork on the side. The pulled... More

We did not know where to go for dinner and this restaurant popped up close to our hotel. We went in about 5 on a Saturday and were seated immediately. Great chowder, it did not need a thing. We had the Sweet chili dirt wings, roasted; they were delicious. I had the baked scrod and it was done perfectly. My... More

We went there for dinner. Each person enjoyed their meal. The ravioli appetizer and lemongrass dumplings were delicious. I had a Mexican inspired entrée salad which was perfect. Wait staff did a great job. Hadn't visited much lately as we had moved out of Plainville, but we need an accessible restaurant for one of our party and it was perfect... More

First time at this dining establishment but certainly not the last. This place was hopping, even on a weekday evening. The wait to be seated was well worth it. Excellent menu choices as well as a fine bar variety. Food was excellent and the service was prompt and attentive. I wouldn't hesitate to return when in the area and will... More

We wanted to see the end of a golf match and headed to this restaurant to try their wings and was not disappointed. The bar area was crowded and noisy but the service was still friendly and efficient. The wings were wonderful although we only tried the Original Dirty Style. I have eaten here before in the restaurant and their... More

Decided to try a different restaurant and J. Timothy's seemed appealing. We tried the dirty wings and they were very, very good, although not super spicy (which I prefer, but I knew they weren't going to be hot anyways). I got a burger and the person I was with got a reuben. The burger wasn't bad, but the Reuben seemed... More

We arrived at J. Timothy's Taverne after a day of exploring. We were tired, hungry and without reservations. There seemed to be an awful crowd and we were given a number and told to expect a 1/2 hour wait. We stepped outside and were astonished when we were called less than 15 minutes later. Our table was cozy and comfortable... More
