Bar is great ....get the chicken platter. You will Love it...lightly fried chicken on top of mashed potatoes smothered on a buttermilk gravy. Large enough portion to split! Very quaint atmosphere...romantic!

I always enjoy a visit to Jill's as it has everything I want: a warm welcome, fun and comfortable décor, always delicious food, and that extra special something that makes you want to come back. I've visited Jill's multiple times for lunch and once for dinner and have never been disappointed. Their friendly service and great selection of dishes hits... More

Our waitress, Rosie was fantastic! The house Manhattan made with Pendleton was everything I needed..but I also ordered the Buttermilk Fried Chicken at Rosie's urging and it did not let me down! Romantic little spot, Excellent Food! Go here! Even the mayor running for Congress used it as her fund raising spot. Love that!

Clubhouse with spectacular bacon. Wife wouldn't share with me. I had oven roasted turkey with lots of cranberry sauce. Not disappointed. Seemed to... More

Our service was great, we had our drinks immediately, soup and salad quickly and the garlic bread with the starters was really good. We had looked for a place with good steaks, I had the petite filet, just the right size with scalloped potatoes and very fresh seasonal veggies. The split pea soup was wonderful, the steak very tender and... More

My wife and I ate at Jill's Place last night. I had not been there in years, and Linda claims she had never been there. Jill's is located sort of off the beaten track, so it is a local place and many tourists may not know about it. Jill's has been pleasantly remodeled due to fire damage a few years... More

Really good steak. Tucked away from the tourist area. A favorite with locals. Easy parking and good service.
