Though a bit pricey, we found our entrees to be worth the money. First bite made me close my eyes, purse my lips and " mmmmmm" !

The food is a notch above. they add that extra touch to almost all their dishes. If you're looking for food that makes it more of an adventure rather than the same mundane offerings at most restaurants, give Baldwins a try. Yesterday I had blackened shrimp over grits with andoulie sausage. They didn't have to wash my dish

My wife and I have been going to J. Baldwin's since it opened and it has never failed to deliver. Jeff and his staff are always on top of their game. The calamari is fantastic and is always one of our choices. We have never been disappointed when we or our family visit..

As always, I was very satisfied with everything about this restaurant. I got the Chicken Bella which was sooo very good, and hubby got the Duck, also great. The best part of the visit is the Calamari. I have never tasted such tender calamari, and we always order it when we come here. The wait staff was very friendly and... More

We moved from the area and truly miss this restaurant the most. The calamari appetizer is an absolute must. Even if you are not a fan, I beg you to try it. Tender, flavorful, no tentacles or full octopi, just absolutely deliciousness. Their pizzas are great and my favorite dish is the mushroom ravioli ( and I am not a... More

I met a friend up here for drinks and dinner. We each had a martini in one of their specialty ice glasses. I love that it kept my drink cold the entire time. I am usually one to ask for my drinks extra cold anyways so this was great. The only thing is that you need to drink it pretty... More

I met a friend there a few times for afternoon drinks and apps at the bar. The bartenders are very personable and knowledgeable. The apps are very good and reasonably priced. The dinner menu had a variety of items on it, but we didn't order dinner. The place is tucked away from the road so you have to look for... More

LOVE IT! Girls night dinner and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our server Kylie was spectacular; attentive and personable. The food surpassed my expectations. I had the apple bourbon chicken and wow was it delicious. The combination of apples chicken, and butternut squash ravioli was beyond amazing. The desert made by their in house pastry chef was simply divine;... More
