Very Good

Have eaten here many times. The food is consistently good. Service is less than great, hard to get attention of staff for needed service. Appetizers are consistently very good, entrees sometimes are over seasoned. All in all a good value for the money.

We had a spur of the moment dinner here and once again it was a phenomenal experience. From service to drinks to food, we had an amazing night. I am particularly fond of their cheese platter. I asked our waiter about the caramelized onion cheese and told him how much we enjoyed it. Next thing I know, he's talked to... More

Stayed in Wallingford at a great B & B and decided to have dinner at J. Christian's. We had the salmon and the steak and shrimp. The food was pretty good and the staff was cordial and friendly. My only complaint is that I enjoy a well seasoned salmon and the dish I ordered was not season to my liking.

Eat here many times a month. Food is always first class. Love their burgers now on Tuesday's have 10 more burger options. They upgraded their craft beer selection. Tried a strawberry IPA I did not care for but the bartender offered to replace but declined tried a Goose Island IPA was really refreshing. Best Food in town for the value.... More

Most people enjoy this restaurant for it's white table cloth atmosphere and wonderful food, however, it's the best kept secret around that you can enjoy great happy hour fare with drink specials and reduced priced appetizers! We love going for a glass of wine and their yummy mac n' cheese!

This is my go to spot for happy hour. They have a great happy hour menu with food and drink specials. The food never disappoints. Staff is always very friendly. My husband and I have also gone here for full dinners and loved the special attention we received from our server.

Came in on a quiet Monday evening. We drove down from Massachusetts to celebrate our anniversary and found that there are few nice restaurants open on Mondays. Although the hours are short, only open from 4-9, the food was excellent and the service was friendly and professional.

Beautiful setting, great service, but the best part is the crab cakes, chef is from the Outer Banks, my favorite place on earth, they are fantastic! Always have great specials, and great drink list, try the Dark & Stormy
