We had an impromptu trip to Jamestown on Saturday and had the pleasure of dining at J22. We sat outside because we had the dog with us. The atmosphere, service, and was great! I highly recommend the Mediterranean pizza. Kelsey was our server and she...was wonderful. 4.5 stars for this visit!More

Ate dinner here the first night of our girls' getaway. Lucas was our waiter and he was terrific, even though it was only his third day. Two of us had steak tacos and they were awesome! Would definitely recommend this restaurant. They don't take reservations,...so come a little on the early side. You won't be disappointed!More

I guess being the only place open on a Wednesday allows you to do everything wrong and simply not seem to care. First, we ordered a Mediterranean pizza (no meat) as an appetizer with two fish and chips and a Caesar salad to follow. They...flipped it around. The fish was good, but the salad had no flavor and the fries were cold. When our pizza finally arrived, it was burnt under and on top. They served it like “hey, what else are they going to eat”. When we confronted them, we saw them laughing about it and then they took someone else’s pizza and served it to us except this time it had chicken on it, which our guests were not allowed to eat. Moreover. It was slightly burnt. We love Jamestown, but we will wait until Thursday to go out to dinner there. The waitress was the only real positive of the evening.More

The waitress was the only reason I didn’t give them 0 stars. We sat down (this was the only place open tonight) and ordered wine and a margarita pizza. The pizza was so over cooked and NOT hot when it arrived at the table. Granted...the restaurant was busy but there’s no excuse for poor food. I ordered my burger bloody red (in fact, I said “slap it on the ass and walk it out” ) with no bun and hot fries please. Well, my fries were cold and my burger so over cooked! Inedible!!! I called the waitress over and asked once again to have the burger BARELY COOKED. The manager assured me it would be done right! Well, it was MORE OVERCOOKED than the first attempt. Guess I will NOT be visiting again. The manager apologized but it’s not 10 pm and I have had no dinner.More

Tonight we celebrated with dinner at this wonderful restaurant. Don’t let the relaxed atmosphere let you think mediocre, because the food is phenomenal. I had the grilled salmon with risotto. Incredible, delectable. Our wait staff was on point and the food top notch. If you...are in Jamestown, make this your first choice. You won’t be disappointed.More

We ate here our last two nights while in Jamestown RI. This was our favorite restaurant in RI. The first night I had a baked stuffed quahog (stuffie) $4 which was the best I had from about 5 restaurants in RI. We also shared a...seafood paella $30 which was remarkable. The second time I again had a stuffie and a pizza. My wife had linguine with white clam sauce. This place gets busy by about 6 pm.More

We had a drink at the bar while ordering takeout. Maria was fantastic. We ordered two small plates which were very good.

We visited on a Saturday night, and anticipated a great experience based on reviews and magazine articles. While the menu was innovative, the food and service were mediocre at best. Our server was attentive and ever present as we ordered drinks and apps, then was...no where to be found when we wanted to order additional drinks or small plates. She apologized when she forgot orders, but didn’t return until many in our group were already done eating to deliver forgotten entrees and drinks. Swordfish was overcooked and dry, but the Scallops (small plates) was done to perfection even though it was delivered lukewarm to our table. Great local beers on tap.....but again our server “forgot” to deliver some beers until everyone else was done. We truly wanted to love this restaurant, but with so many better options in the area, we most likely won’t give J22 another chance.More

The menu is extensive - anyone can find something they like. Unexpected ingredients that make each item terrific and unusual. Plenty of space around you for Covid safety. Troy, the chef, continues to surprise and please!!!!

Buck a shuck- fresh delish seafood- oysters and little necks. Great friendly staff and had a delicious Bloody Mary- house vodka is Smirnoff- which is a decent quality. Will be back
