Good drinks, good ambiance and good food

I see some recent reviews aren't great- and it's been a couple of months since I last went. That being said - service had always been decent and the food and drinks good.

Great southern style foods at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is very inviting for an intimate dinner for two, or a larger group.

As per my last review November 2014. Service even more labored - forced... Barmaid had to yell over to manager.. Manager to hostess. .. Hostess stares at seating chart... Restaurant was less than half full and we were party of three. Hostess calls manager. Manager calls waitress. All stare at seating chart... We wait.... Meanwhile wait staff mill about and... More

Chicken was pretty good. Brussel sprouts were alright but could have been alot better with some butter. Service was rather slow and we weren't very happy with the fact that kids drinks weren't included with their meal. $3 for a kid's drink is crazy. ... that's why I'll always just order water!!!! For as fancy as the inside looked the... More

My first visit to J. Peppers was somewhat disappointing but is one I have hope for. It has a different atmosphere/environment than any other restaurant in Kernersville with its southern upscale bent. The rolls and smashed potatoes were delicious! My entre' of sweet tea/ lemon chicken has a catchy title but was tough and a disappointment. Many of the dishes... More

Eh is what I have to say about the meatloaf and green beans. But the rolls and smashed potatoes were excellent. I can mark this off my bucket list.

This place is on its way back to the top. After bottoming out 18 months ago, multiple recent visits have revealed a revitalized menu and staff. Great choice for any meal.

have dined here several times. First 3 visits, loved it. Next two, it was ok. Late two, pretty much did us in. Service from good to now poor. Food from wonderful to bland. And atmosphere from quaint, to louder than most sports bars. Sorry, but done with this place.

This restaurant is unique in it's menu and variety but I'm never disappointed. Have had a salad, a sandwich, a burger; everything has been delicious!! They change their menu fairly regularly also, which is nice because everything is in season. Great for couples, families or a fun night out (full bar too!) We've even reserved the back room for a...

My husband and I have had Sunday Brunch here twice recently. The food was good on both occasions. The service was lacking a bit the first time around, but we decided to give them another try. I must say our service today was excellent. My husband had the breakfast platter with bacon, eggs, hash browns and creamy grits on both... More
