Perfect for us

We ate lunch here and are so glad we did. If you aren't' a seafood person, eating in Charleston can be a challenge. We have a mix of seafood lovers and non, so this proved to be a good choice for lunch. There was something for everyone. The bar b q was good and I liked having many choices for... read more

Two stars because my food was OKAY. For the price, they need to step it up a little. I had the Hamburger Dave, and fries. When it was served it was just sloppy and the bread was so crispy on the top, it just was weird. My boyfriend ordered the three meat and two sides. The sausage was awful. No... More

The first time we went to J&N was for lunch. The pulled pork sandwiches with side of slaw was very good - busy place for lunch. Nice biscuits served in a basket too. We went back for dinner and it was great. We all had the combination plates - everyone liked their selections, whether it was smoked turkey (my favorite),... More

There were 19 people in our group and they handled it like true professionals. We didnt have a reservation, there were 7 kids in the group, and it might have been the hottest day of the year. I had the corn bread, ribs and mac n cheese. Everyone enjoyed it so much we went back a second time later that... More

We absolutely loved our lunch at this place. My husband (a BBQ fanatic) got the sampler platter and loved every thing on it. The staff was polite and friendly, and kept our drinks topped off the whole time. We definitely plan to go back the next time we're in town.

I really enjoy well cooked BBQ that isn't dried out and has flavor. These guys have done it. There was plenty to have another meal the next day and after heating it up in the microwave it was just as good as the night before. The Mac and cheese is delightful and I just wish it came in a bigger... More
