My wife and I anticipated a nice evening out with a delicious meal in a restaurant that had been given rave reviews. Upon entering, they take your coats and you proceed to follow the greater thru a leather curtain into the dining area. The wait staff seemed very full of themselves like it was a five star New York City... More

If you want to pretend your in a high end restaurant and at least pay the price for one... this place is for you. Atmosphere is upscale. Staff and clientel think highly of themselves. But the food is "You've got to be kidding..." average. The best part is the white tablecloth and snooty waiter... emulates a high end dinner environment... More

We visited Hagerstown for a parents weekend event. This restaurant was recommended to us. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner (supper) here. The quality of the food was superb. Lots of variety on the menu. And the service was good--our waiter has worked in the restaurant since it opened and knew the menu in and out. No complaints. This is the best... More

Food was good, but not great as other reviews state. However, the service was impeccable. Best I have had in years, anywhere. We got the tasting menu and expected it to be similar to the Charleston. NOT. There is basically 1 choice per course. Seafood was cooked well. There was a cold soup that was overspiced and many of the... More

Had dinner at the bar. They have a really good selection of wine by the glass. The bartender was very knowledgable about both the wine and the food. They have a small but innovative menu and seemed to do everthing quite well. Loved the blistered olives and the tuna entree was great. With 2 appetizers, one entree was enough for... More

I used to have lunch at LJ's years ago and totally enjoyed it every time. They no longer serve lunch but I have had dinner there on occasion but not recently. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and birthdays several times. After reading some of the reviews, which are not favorable, I wonder if anything has changed since... More

If you're ever in Hagerstown and looking for a good buffet, don't bother with this place. It was Mother's Day, and apparently mom did not need a hot meal. Everything from the fried chicken, salmon, and roast beef was cold. The macaroni and cheese was lukewarm. There was a pasta bar with a "chef" who cooked ingredients "to order" but... More

The food was way too salty. We tried the trout and were totally dissatisfied! Didn't even eat half of it! The presentation was poor as well. Thank God for the beer! We tried the house salad and again we were heavily disappointed! It was plain romaine salad..with some type of lemon dressing...gross. We didn't even want to stay for dessert... More
