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

Best wings I've had period. The entrees are high quality and reasonably priced. The beer menu is fairly lengthy and sure to fit anyone's taste. Fine for families or adults.

Stopped in for a light lunch today and shared a beet salad and French onion soup. This lunch was a real treat and we were stuffed by the time we left. The soup served, with a hefty slice of thick melted Swiss cheese, was delicious. We wondered how someone might be able to eat a meal after this big bowl... More

The wings here are really good. The only wings that we have had that may be a bit better is Duff's in Buffalo NY. We have had both the original style and dirt style. We liked the original better, but will try the dirt style one more time. We have always ordered take out and are order has always been... More

A place worth passing through if in Plainville or anywhere near. Wings very good as well as calamari. Had the BBQ ribs - falls off the bone as expected. Good portion size too. Would recommend the chilli glaze too.

We arrived late in town on way to drop off our son at Trinity and we were staying in Plainville at the Marriott Fairfield Inn just down the road from J. Timothy's . BTW - the hotel is new, clean, and well priced. We tried J. Timothy's as they served dinner late in the bar area (full menu). Food and... More

History: One in person visit. Two "take out" visits. I've only had the "dirty wings" so Im not able to comment on anything else. Apparently 'dirty wings' are fried, then flavored, then fried again (twice fried?) which helps develope a crispy flavored crust over the wing. The result is a flavorful, slightly crispy wing/drumette. Its more of a subtle improvment... More
