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

$10 for a sandwich (burger, fish taco or chicken... Depending on the week), fries & beer/wine. Fun atmosphere, knowledgable wait staff & delicious food!

For a high-end restaurant I was very disappointed when I went in there for my meal and was offered Mac and cheese and french fries with my sirloin. Salad was nothing but lettuce and didn't like the salad dressing at all. People that live off the government with food stamps eats better than this. Should have went to Bob Evans... More

We just went to LJ's for my birthday and the food was wonderful! The restaurant is upscale but not stuffy, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality. I'm looking forward to going back soon!

LJ's is a wonderful experience. If you sit near the kitchen - it is open - you can take in all the activity and preparation. Atmosphere is beautiful and elegant while feeling relaxed and casual. Food is incredible. They always change it up and have the freshest of everything. I have been there for family and business dinners. I am... More
