Decent food and prices, but the clientele act like they're in the 'real' Hamptons

I've eaten here solo and with family several times. Usually sit at the bar or in the lounge. The food is very good, the portions are plentiful, the atmosphere is nice, and the prices are reasonable. Service can be slow at times. As noted in the title of this review, a lot of the customers are... read more

Had dinner here for our anniversary in October. Chose this because its Jillian's, a well known area chef who had established and then sold many restaurants in seacoast nh. It wasn't as upscale as I expected, but was nicely appointed. Waitress was attentive. The dinners were very good and ample. However I was expecting over-the-top due to the name. The... More

Pleasant staff and waitress. Food was good. Salad with entree was very fresh and better than expectation and they had good table dressing. The fettuccine carbonara was quite good just too much cream sauce. My wife had fried ravioli which was lightly fried with spinach and not too much red sauce. Food was good just not amazing, but it's a... More

Server unfamiliar with menu, went to find out ? we asked and then forgot when she returned. My husband asked if they had French Onion soup...she said yes...and then when... More

By far the best Italian homemade food within 100 miles. Being in a resort area this restaurant insist on maintaining its perfection served with every meal. Not to mention a luncheon menu with food portions enough for two adults and a dogie bag to go. This time of the year they are still crowded with locals and we as locals... More

Nice place, fresh food, friendly staff. My fave is the eggplant parm and my hubby's is the sausage sub (ask for the sausage to be cut up). Go on a weekday or Sat. the one thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars is that on Sunday the prices go up, for exactly the same menu because it's considered 'dinner'... More

Hello Julie, Thank you so much for the awesome review and for coming to Ron Jillian's. I did want to try to explain our Sunday business to you so you are more comfortable being able to come that day also. At the request of many of our guests, they asked that we run our dinner menu all day on Sundays.... More

I ate there with my daughter and 2 friends. I ordered the Italian sandwich. My daughter ordered a wrap, one friend ordered the Reuben and another ordered a hamburger. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

The pizza is excellent, as are all the Italian dishes. Big screen TV allows the diner to watch the game while enjoying the delicious food.

An Italian Restaurant serving quality over quantity but never skimping on the amount of food presented to you the customer. Its almost like the waitress is the chef's guide. As always I try to order something different but that doesn't always work because we are all creatures of habit and have our favorites. Tough to break away sometimes. With that... More
