Good, not great

Good food and good service. A bit pricier for what you get though. I've had better meals for cheaper elsewhere. Also, there can be a bit of a wait, depending on when you go.

Food was great and the manager Matthew Cullura had excellent customer service! Very nice and very accommodating. We had a big party and he made sure our visit went smoothly.

I came here specifically for the fried chicken and waffles. The waitress brought out maple syrup and gravy along with our food and at the time I didn't want syrup with it because I thought it was an odd combination. The gravy in America however seems to looks like Campbell's chicken soup and is very white in colour and not... More

Great food and love the retro decor! Trendy little upscale retro American Dinner. Definitely worth visiting! The baked macaroni and cheese and matzo ball soup were just like Mom's! The Beef Brisket sandwich, Pulled pork sandwich, and cheeseburger were all delicious! Give it a try!

Jones is a wonderful gem of a restaurant in Center City, Philadelphia. The décor is modern with a touch of industrial, rustic whimsy. Service was attentive. My niece and I both had the "build your own salad" and they were both exceptionally good. The ingredients seemed top shelf and very fresh. No wilted lettuce here. The build your own salad... More

Stephen Starr's description of Jones as "American comfort food" is a stretch at these prices. The salad options are numerous, and the salad portions are huge but way too light on the "protein" portion (especially for the size of the bowl, the amount of greens, and the price). Service was excellent, though, even given fact that the restaurant was packed... More

I ordered beef brisket and my daughter ordered fried chicken. Beef was good but side ,pasta was very salty. I couldn't eat it. Also fried chicken too salty as well. I just left pasta there and my daughter couldn't finish her chicken. We are happy with milkshake in the end. Staff friendly and restaurant was clean and big space.
