Everything in town seems to close on Wednesday PM.. Owner was sitting at table in front of restaurant and offered us a snack even though she was officially closed. We returned for dinner. Food was excellent..Choice of side veggies was very good. Pecan Chicken was great. Single waitress who could really move. Overall a very pleasant experience

We chose this restaurant as the options are extremely limited in this struggling little town. We walked in to see only one other table occupied. It was 6pm. The waitress told us we could sit anywhere we wanted. We checked several tables and discovered they were all sticky as a result of poor lacquering. No table cloths. The armed wooded... More

I am sorry you were not satisfied with your meal. Everything in our restaurant is cooked to order, there are some things that have to be prepared at 4pm each day, example the potatoes are placed in the oven, crab cakes are put together, potato soup and seafood chowder are made. I wish you had asked to speak to me... More

My Shrimp Crepes were the best thing I have ever eaten. The parmesan tomatoes were awesome and the grilled asparagus great. My husband had wonderful fried shrimp, and the other couple with us had the hamburger that was huge and actually was medium rare and grilled salmon that looked wonderful. This place is a must try.

While traveling from Hilton Head, SC to the north Georgia mountains we happened to find ourselves in the beautiful historic small town of Washington, GA at a good time to stop for the night. We were most fortunate to find our way to the Jockey Club for dinner. The steaks (filets) and sides were excellant as was the service! We... More

If you're looking for a little bit more exquisite experience for lunch in Washington, look no further than the Jockey Club. The atmosphere is great and the staff is attentive. We were there on the day of the Tour of Homes and some of the menu items that we asked for were not there - this was likely due to... More

Thank you! Please come back again for lunch or dinner. This was our first Tour of Hones since we purchased the restaurant. We were told by staff it was the busiest in years. We really try to make every dining experience a very pleasant one. Thanks again and come back soon. More

We went on a Saturday night with some friends. Some of them had been here previously. A very unique place lots of history and nice warm feel. Several of us had the steak special. The service was good, and food was great. I would certainly keep this place on my list of places to stop again.

We're staying at the Fitzgerald Hotel on the square in awarding ton, Ga. The Jockey Club is across the square. The restaurant is very nice and cozy with maroon walls and fox and hounds art. Service was good - attentive but not always there. The food was good. I had the grilled mahi mahi special. It was alright. My wife... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry your visit was not pleasant. You never know how to staff in a small town. We have added another waitperson and another chef on Saturdays. I really hope you decide to give the restaurant another try. More
