In looking for a new place, our group of cousins found this location. Visited on a Tuesday night and found it quite quaint and homey like. Interesting building out in the middle of nowhere. The dining area is very small and the tables a VERY close together, its almost like everyone is sitting together - reminiscent of European family table... More

Ordered a queen size prime rib to take some home, but it was so delicious there were no leftovers! Friday fish fry is very good, but it's very busy and tends to be a loud night at the Jail House, which is a smaller restaurant.

All I can say is "Awesome". We had a reservation on a Friday and had to wait a bit, which we expected as having been here before. We were seated upstairs (which we prefer). The staff is well versed on the specials and are very attentive for having to run up and down the stairs! The food was fantastic as... More

We ate here tonight for our Anniversary dinner, mostly because we had a Groupon that we wanted to use. This was the 4th time we've eaten here over the last 7 years. Our previous experiences had been less than ideal also but we thought we'd give it one last try....MISTAKE. Restaurant opened at 5pm today and we arrived at around... More

We are never disappointed when we eat here. The service and quality of the food is beyond expectation right down to the presentation. The chef made an appearance at our table last time we ate there. It was a nice added touch. Highly recommended!!

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
