Wings are worth their reputation

Good luch getting in here on a Friday or Saturday night but worth the wait, or come early or late night, upstairs in loft area is first come first serve - definitely call ahead for down stairs, great rooms for parties and showers

This place is known for its wings, but don't neglect to try other menu choices. I highly recommend the cheddar ale soup and blue cheese burger plate. They have a wonderful selection of beers on tap, many of which are locally brewed. Service is prompt and courteous. You can eat from the menu and then order wings to go for... More

J Timothy's is well known for their wings. And they are good, damned good. But if you only ever order wings here, you are missing out on the rest of the menu. They have a very good beer menu, both draft and can or bottle. The place is huge, multi level and quaint. It's an old New England building and... More

Food was great, especially the wings. I mentioned how good a non-traditional sauce was on my steak and the chef gave the server a container of it for me to take home! Really awesome. Building is really cool. Got crowded quick on a Tuesday night. Get there early!

There is always a wait and the place is always packed. I have no idea why. I also do not understand this 4 star rating. I have been here several times, and I am never impressed. The wings are great, but I believe that might be the only enjoyable item on the menu. Tonight we had a party of 6.... More

My family have been regulars for a while. I don't know what took me so long to try j. Timothys. 5 stars all the way. Atmosphere. Service. And the food!!!! I thoroughly enjoyed the tailgate pretzel. The cheddar ale dip was amazing. I also ordered and enjoyed every bite of the butternut squash. The other dishes my family ordered looked... More

I have always wanted to check J Timothy's out, and have heard so many good things about it. I was not disappointed. We ate on a Sunday afternoon, and the place was very busy and parking was tight, but after circling the lot, we were able to find an open spot. Our wait was about 10 minutes - as promised.... More
