This place is very informal so we were surprised by the quality of the food. There is a butcher so the specialty is meat. My steak was very good and well priced. Waiter was excellent as well.

I was slightly disappointed in the food quality and service. This location seemed to be more "hip" than the old spot before it caught fire or whatever. Mu steak had to go back twice and the sodas were watered Dow.

We ate at Jill's Place for no particular reason than it was there and we enjoyed a meal there a year or so ago. Atmosphere remains pleasant and relaxed and food is excellent.

It is my understanding that the owner comes from a family that is in the meat business. So steak and barbecue are their specialties. We had a reservation, but did not need it. The tables are very plain (wood) without tablecloths and the restaurant is...More

We had a great time here across the board - food, atmosphere and service were all great. We ordered a large variety of items and not one person in the group has a single complaint.

A nice change from the bustle of State Street. A local steak house that's been around for a while. Happy hour specials. Good dinner and McConnells ice cream for dessert. Really enjoyable.
