“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We travel a lot and my wife loves shrimp and grits, the best so far were at Barbara Jeans in Amelia Island, This small quaint restaurant in downtown Lawrenceville, GA compares with Barbara Jeans.

“Lawrenceville Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

LR has a short menu that changes seasonally, but based upon a recent lunchtime meal with my adult son...I'd guess that they do everything very well! My son had a halibut sandwich, which he pronounced very juicy and tasty, along with a locally brewed IPA which was a nice compliment to his fish. I had the 'truck stop' which is the LR version of a patty-melt: it was toasted perfectly without being greasy, and had a nice balance of onions and cheese. Service was polite, punctual and not intrusive, and being able to enjoy our lunch on the outdoor patio gave us a nice venue to people watch in 'downtown' Lawrenceville. I'd certainly come back for a return visit!

“Best place in downtown Lawrenceville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Fresh and fantastic. The menu will appeal to all taste buds. The beer selection is always changing and I like it that way. You may order a beer one day and the next they have put something new in its place. Great way to try beers that you would never just go out and buy since many of them you have never heard of.
Great service as well. Always treated like we are the only ones there even when crowded.

“Love this restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My husband and I love going here. The food has always been great, the service is good. It's a great place to go on a date night. They have a huge beer menu as well. Love the new patio dining as well.

“Love the patio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great food! Options change daily depending on what is in season. Patio is a great place to relax and catch up with friends. Servers helpful and attentive. I've been several times this summer and was always pleased with food and service.
