Just happened upon this place when driving by and decided to stop for dinner. Great atmosphere in an obviously historic but well maintained building. Our server Lyndsay couldn't have been more pleasant. Ordered chef dusted portabellas for appetizer and they were delicious. Both fish dinners were also excellent. Only negative was that the waffle fries were greasy, but with the... More

Second time eating here and was not dissapointed. Food can be a bit on the pricey side. My wife has gluten allergy and both times they were able to provide her good food without any problems. Great place for special occasions, nice atmosphere.

This was our first experience at The Jail House Restaurant. My son recommended Jail House as he has eaten there once before. He thought they had a fabulous Friday fish fry and he mentioned we would enjoy it. Jail House Restaurant is really in the middle of nowhere. It sits all by itself out in the country. I think that's... More

Went for the first time last week with a Groupon. The service and food were just wonderful. I recommend the yummy mashed cauliflower. I had the jumbo shrimp and the half rack of ribs. These ribs are fantastic; falling off the bone and great sauce. My dinner mate had the medallions with mushrooms. Awesome wine sauce and very juicy. I... More

Excellent food. My wife had the seafood scampi ($26) and I had the 20 oz bone in ribeye ($32). Both were delicious and it was one of the most tender ribeyes I've had in a while. Salad was good and my wife had soup, also very good. We had a drink before dinner and one after dinner. Very friendly staff... More

Had a 6:30 reservation for six people last night (Friday). Did not get a table until 7:15. Yes, I get it that it is a Friday, but why take the reservation if you have to wait 45 minutes to sit down? After that, service was slow. And I mean slow. All in, with normal table service, (we passed on desert),... More

My wife and her father took our kids out to eat here in January. They all thought the food was good. I was brought some take out ribs and chicken. I thought the food was very good, no complaints. We will be returning in the future.

My husband and I decided to visit the Jailhouse on New Year's Eve after not eating there for several years. We had a very pleasant experience, from the great service from our waitress Sarah, to our really good food. I had the 6oz filet with scallops and my husband had a rib eye. Steaks were cooked the way we had... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants! Awesome ribs and prime rib. We have always had excellent service, even though it is sometimes a very crowded place.

Our party was 4 adults and 1 small child. We we seated immediately on a busy Friday. The strap on the highchair was broken, and not very clean. Having said that, we were greeted by a pleasant waitress and promptly received our drink order. I had to ask for a children's menu, which after asking for a highchair you would... More
