We had dinner outside & really enjoyed everything about UJ. Good service & the other customers seemed to all know one another.

Great location away from the hectic city. First, our server was great although I forget his name. Very friendly and eager to,please. Other members of the staff were cranky and complaining about customers being there too long. The food was average. The appetizers took 20-30 min to arrive and were cold. We had wings, burgers, nachos and loaded fries. Maybe... More

I give this joint 3 stars only because the beer and grilled chicken sandwich were fabulous. The wait staff was rude bordering on mean. We had a party of 8 and had pushed together (on our own) 3 small tables. A forth table was being used by the waitstaff as a junk table. Seriously, it was holding 2 pitchers and... More

They have a great bar choice and some original options (JD Honey with sweet tea and lemonade is the bomb!). The food choices were good and quality seemed to match. The atmosphere is perfect, sitting outside is very inviting and relaxing. Been back and will continue, a great Saturday lunch spot.

U-Joint as it's known to locals has flat screen tv's for sports watching but sit outside & sip on beer & the wonderful hummus appetizer. Best burgers, chicken fingers & gyro wrap around. Come here often with friends & family, worth the trip!

Came here with a group for our weekly lunch. The weather was great so we took advantage of the nice patio outside. Lots of people about. I had the turkey burger with tots. I liked both but I thought the tots were special -- nice and crispy and not greasy. The little one had the kid's grilled cheese, which he... More

In a little nook that is quiet yet interesting. you feel like your in an art district of sorts with a little bit of everything in one small area. Very inviting..Food was Great! we ordered way more than we could eat, but gladly took it back... More

Small neighborhood hangout in Oakhurst where you will want to become a regular. Good service & food. On nice days time will pass quickly sitting on the patio overlooking the "village" shops. Great place to be after dark.

Seems like UJoint has gotten worse, not better. Fewer decent beers, pretty average menu, spotty service. Great patio, but that's just not enough to draw me there. Such a great spot in the heart of Oakhurst, but if it's decent food and a good beer you're after, look somewhere else.
