Wife and I visited last week for the first time in over a year. Got the shrimp and flounder plate with fries, onion rings, slaw, hush puppies, salad and tea. The shrimp and ice tea were incredible. We filled a take out box full for the next day. The fried flounder was not a good as in the past. Certainly... More

Had not been to this restaurant recently, but a friend asked me to go with him. They took our order quickly and we didn't have to wait long to get our food. Both ordered the small Calabash Shrimp Plate and it was a heaping plate of shrimp, fries, cold slaw and hush puppies. More than one person needs to eat,... More

Hands down the MOST delicious popcorn shrimp and sweet tea in the world! I travel to Florence to visit family often and when there we always make a visit to Jumpin' J's! I could eat here for every meal and never get tired of it. Super fresh and delicious food and if you drop a shrimp, I think you could... More

We called in here for Saturday lunch and only had to queue for a few minutes Hubby & I decided to share a Seafood platter and were glad we did because even though it's not billed as a dish to share, I can't believe there's many out there who could finish this on there own!! We had loads of popcorn... More

On my second visit I realized the shrimp was much too salty, and the cornbread ring didn't taste good and smelled like sweat. Accidents happen, but the regional love of salt and sugar is excessive, and I am a native Southerner. Still If I had to feed a lot of people it's very reasonably priced. You order and pick up...

This is a great pace to get anything from a hamburger to popcorn shrimp to fried chicken. The dinners come with a small salad. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. You place your order at the counter and then take your drink and find a seat. In about 15 to 20 minutes they will call your number... More

A coworker recommend this place because they knew I liked fried chicken and this place did not disappoint. I ordered the three piece and fries and it was very good. The chicken has a unique flavor but it was excellent. The food could have been a little warmer but otherwise it was very good.
