Alex and his crew created a fabulous appetizer platter for a very small special event. All night heard comments about the unique favors, special touches and elegance. 2 different country pates. Salmon condiments beautifully prepared. This far exceeded expectations. Would also make a lovely... read 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

We had kind of forgotten about L.J.'s - used to go there quite a bit - so when we heard about the St. Patrick's Day brunch we decided to make reservations - always enjoyed their brunches. Well, I'm sorry but we have crossed L.J.'s totally off the list - very disappointing visit - not the same tip top professional service... More

First time there since moving here a 1 1/2 ago. This is now our favorite to go "Special Event" restaurant. Food first -- I had the flank steak medium rare with fries and smoked ketchup - steak was to perfection with the right amount of spice. Beforehand, I had the smoked salmon appetizer - almost stopped the main meal and... More

On a recent business trip to Hagerstown,MD my wife googled (when did google become a verb?) Trip Advisor to search for dinner and found this teasure. It is a little hard to find and needs a better sign. It is on the end of a court or you might never locate it, BUT, it is well worth the hunt (just... More

There aren't many great restaurants in this area. This is suppose to be one of the best. It has an open kitchen. Some might think the wait staff is pretentious but I think they try to be professional and efficient. While the menu was different and have good selections, the food was not as great as I had hoped. Apparently... More

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
