The atmosphere and food here is really quite good. I have never been disappointed. The "must haves" are the salmon dip and the NYO mac and cheese. I also recommend the pork loin...excellent!

I don't know about a children's menu, but they have kid friendly foods such as chicken strips, burgers. Many people take children to J's. :)
