Pricey, but tasty

This is a very nice restaurant with impeccable service and a great menu. My only issue was that they didn't have a printed kids menu, but that's a little thing. We ordered a kids hamburger, a kids grilled chicken and mash, some fish tacos, and a roast chicken. All were well prepared and tasted... read more

The place tries to act very fancy with the low light and wooden tables but all the food over priced. One beer and a chicken dinner with a Ceasars salad was almost 36 without tip. That's a little crazy. Majority of the chicken was good and juicy but it was spectacular. The waitress was nice and attentive but bc I... More

Food and drinks are always great at J's. This visit the service was above and beyond. I mis-ordered the wrong toppings on my son's burger. The waiter noticed us scraping mayonnaise and mustard off and asked if all was okay. We asked for a new bun and he offers to re do the whole burger! What service!!

I really enjoy this restaurant. It's a very nice ambiance with great service. Food on this visit wasn't quite as good as previous visits but it was still better than most. They have great salads and their Mac & cheese is the best I've ever eaten.

Nice atmosphere, limited menu, very good food. Full bar that has craft beers on tap. I'll often order the sides instead of a meal. The heirloom beets are a must. My wife likes the "Alex" salad.

I love going here with co-workers. The service is impeccable and the food is always great! One of my favorite items on their menu is the Alex Salad. So fresh! They also have a great fish sandwich with a fresh catch of the day. I had redfish which was served on a fresh bun with their housemade version of tartar... More

I enjoy eating here. The prime rib with the smashed potato is awesome. Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with excellent service. Location is good also. I definitely recommend this restaurant as a must to try.

Food is very good but waitress dumped dinner when placing it on the table. She never apologized but management quickly stepped in, cleaned it up and apologized. Management came back later and asked again if everything was ok and apologized again. I really appreciated that.
