Thank you for your review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner. Yes, the smoking can be a downer and we understand the frustration in that of non-smokers. We hope you come back and visit Jefferson again!

I ate here twice during my stay in Jefferson. The building is amazing. The food was great. But most of all, the staff treated us like family. I think it would be a fun bar to visit at night too.

Yes, we are a smoking establishment. Probably the last one in Texas. We strive to make everyone happy but unfortunately not always easy to do. We do have certain areas at times that are smoke free.
