Great steak and quality of food

Dined here for New Years Eve and was pleased with the quality of food. Ordered the New York Strip steak which is served with a side of spinach and a side salad. The steak was one of the best in the area (and should be for $42), and was cooked a perfect medium as I requested. The encrusted fat... read more

My second visit. I had heard that since my first visit LJ's had "simplified" their menu. Whatever, I loved the food the first time and wasn't disappointed last night either. Firstly, you must be patient (here's a hint, go with someone you enjoy spending time with because while misery loves company, company doesn't think much of the former). Expect it... More

My twin wanted to try it out for our birthday, we brought a party with us. The serving staff looked as if they just walked right off the street, food service was slow and the portions to cost were just not there. Extremely small portions and a large cost

Excellent experience Fine dinning in Hagerstown. Invited friends from Northern VA. They were impressed as well and they were not easily impressed. Unique appetizers and great meal.

The title of this says it all about my overall review. My biggest gripe about this restaurant is that they don't have salt and pepper shakers on the tables, nor sugar/artificial sweetener on the tables. You have to ask for these things. I ordered an unsweetened ice tea and they brought me a small goblet of sweetened syrup. Why? If... More

This place is a true hidden gem in this town. And by hidden I mean location, and that is a compliment. It is lo cated in a area that is off the main thoroughfare and is awesome. Food is always great and creative. We go here every birthday, anniversary and every other special occasion we can make up!!!!!!! Have been... More

Always a unique dinner at LJ’s. Top Notch Meal. Excellent service and food you just can’t find anywhere else in Hagerstown. Special drink options as well. Certainly one of the best places to go for that special night out

My husband and I first ate here shortly after they opened. At the time , we thought the food was good , but the service was rude enough to keep us from coming back. We recently decided to try it one more time. We happened to be sitting up near the kitchen and I noticed that the meals were pre-prepared... More

I REALLY want to give LJ's a 4, but I have to call our dinner last evening average. Let's address service first. We were greeted in an acceptable amount of time, but we did have to wait in the foyer for a little bit. I was surprised to see our hostess wearing a plaid shirt and jeans because I was... More
