Love the food, service is poor

My friends and I went to Jones over Memorial Day weekend. Oddly enough, there was no problem getting a seat. The waitress greeted us quickly, took our orders, and kept trying to sell and upsell. The next time we saw her was when she was trying to sell us coffee and desserts. Someone else... read more

Great music and room decor. Shag rug and fireplace took me back to childhood playroom. Super comfort food and fast friendly service and lots of clean individual bathrooms. Chicken Parmesan was huge and delicious. Loved the tomato soup and grilled cheese made with fontina and cheddar and bacon I added. Hit the spot after a day of visiting liberty bell,... More

The noise is deafening, the service is poor, overpriced, no kid's menu, and they got my order wrong. We won't be coming back.

We were in the restaurant on a Saturday night and we had made reservations prior through OpenTable. In our party was myself, my wife, my 13 year old son and a friend of his. When we arrived about 10 minutes early and our table was not quite ready so we had about a 5 minute wait which is perfectly reasonable... More

We had lunch here after visiting to the National Constitution Center. My husband and I split the burger and fries, and our kids had mac+cheese and fried chicken on a waffle. All were really good. Our server was so nice, and didn't seem to mind that we split the burger and also a milkshake. We don't live in Philadelphia, but... More

This is a nice place to eat in center city. It serves American cuisine at reasonable prices especially for it's location on Chestnut Street. My Maryland crab cake was delicious as was my wife's crab stuffed flounder, which could have been done a bit more, Our friends had the London Broil and again would have liked it done a bit... More

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
