What happened to the coffee?

Food still good especially the French onion soup but their wonderful coffee has been changed to Folgers. We were very disappointed. Most amazing thing this restaurant is totally crowded on a Wednesday night. Had to walk from the auction lot far away in the rain.

Met up with friends after a hockey game and food was outstanding as I remembered it. I moved out of the area so going back was worth the trip. We did the wings regular and dirty wings. Give them both a try you will get your moneys worth. Enjoy!!

The "dirty" wings are good, but maybe not to die for. Place was packed on a Monday night and it's a large place. Loved the ambiance! The flank steak was not impressive, just wasn't a great flavor and wasn't cooked great. But love this place.

I have had a lot of wings in my day and "The Daily Meal" rated these wings the 2nd best in the USA. I have to disaggree whole-heartedly... These wings are second to none. If these wings were in Game of Thrones they'd be sitting on the iron throne right now. If Walter White had tryd these wings before cooking... More

We went in at 11:30am on a Friday and it was nice and quiet. Our server was VERY kind and attentive. He made sure to check in on us as often as he could and helped us decide on what we would like to eat. We tried the pizza soup it was spicy and very good. It was something different.... More

The food was good. Had some dirty wings and the dragon skirt steak over some sort of noddles with veggies. Good. A little Asian type of dish. The steak was really good though. It can be really noisy though as the rooms have low ceiling.

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
