casual and delicious

Great with children and set up a good area for our group. Beet salad with goat cheese or a burger --lots of choices for different tastes.

We didn't have a reservation but they still fit us in. I had the chicken Caesar which was a large bowl or enough for two. I also ordered a side of fries which were thin and crispy, therefore delicious. My wife ordered tomato soup and grilled cheese which she loved. Excellent location very close to Independence Hall and the Liberty... More

Jones is a very casual restaurant (No need to dress up here unlike other Starr restaurants). We went for brunch and we both had the eggs benedict. Mine wasn't cooked according to the way I'd ordered it. It was just okay, nothing really outstanding about it. The person I dined with felt the same way - just okay food. With... More

We had lunch at Jones while visiting friends in Philadelphia. The menu is varied and the food was excellent. We also had great service. We are so glad our friends took us to this restaurant.

I have eaten here many times... A must visit for comfort food but with an upscale touch. Diner food but definitely of high quality... Must have the mac and cheese Grilled cheese with their wholesome tomato soap!

Had fried calamari, perfectly cooked, and chicken and waffles, chicken was delish, chicken gravy was great, and waffle was so-so. Sat at the bar and had great convo with bartender. G&Ts were good as well.

Great atmosphere serving comfort food on steroids. The chicken pot pie is made fresh daily and is amazing, meatloaf is one of my favorites, tomato soup with grilled cheese was perfect on a chilly night, I took advantage of the "make your own salad choice" with very fresh ingredients and I added ahi tuna. Service was very good and we... More

Went with my family of 4. Something for everyone. I went for the "make your own salad" option. It was sooooooo good. Best/freshest salad I've ever had with a WIDE array of ingredients to add.

Great atmosphere, great food. $20 entrees but good ol home cookin'! Different menu than most places with options like meatloaf, potato pancakes, thanksgiving dinner, chicken pot pie, etc. Lounge type diner atmosphere. Service is very friendly, servers wear cozy sweaters. Cozy sums it up!

I took a friend and her children to Jones on a Saturday evening. The service was great and the food was delicious. This is a new favorite of mine. I wish I would have waited for a fireplace table. The only negative is that our table was the first one on the left nearest the door. People were standing right... More
