Love the staff, service and food!! Oops, okay, I have to leave at least 100 characters. Had dinner here last night 12/12/2020. My significant other had the NY strip, loaded baker and salad. He enjoyed every morsel. I devoured my Mahi Mahi served over risotto...and roasted corn. Did I mention the heavenly bread with butter or pimento cheese served prior to our entree or the vast array of exquisite desserts? I could continue but you should dine in, take out or have a delivery for your own personal amazing experience!More

Catering. The best catering experience and food in a long time. We are out of town but had JThomas cater my mom’s celebration of life. Courtney was a total pleasure to deal with.

We started with the deviled eggs and Shredded pork egg rolls. OMG delicious! Then for entrees we had the fried chicken over macaroni and cheese and green beans and the braised beef shoulder, so incredibly tender. Every part of our meal was superb. We brought...dessert home and I forgot to take a picture, we had the pecan bar and it was perfect not too sweet, just right!More

Surprised by the creative and excellent food in this little restaurant in a small, unremarkable strip mall. The ingredients were so fresh, and we enjoyed everything we ate. Our first stop was lunch with good soup and sandwiches, and our second stop was dinner with...an excellent salad with grilled chicken for me and a very nice fish special for my husband.More

The food was fantastic and very reasonable priced. Portions were also good and filling. We managed to share a slice of cake and the desert selection was incredible. Would definitely visit again!

Had the daily special, Meat Loaf, macaroni and cheese, green beans, biscuit. Biscuit came cold, meat loaf bad, mac/cheese bad. Green beans given all that were surprisingly good. I generally give a restaurant two visits so this being my first I will try one more...dinner time visit.More

My wife and I had heard about J Thomas Kitchen and we were not disappointed. This is a limited seating casual restaurant with a definite local favorite vibe. We arrived early (5:00 pm) and were glad we did. The place fills up very quickly. The...menu is somewhat limited (good choices though) but does offer nightly specials. We started off with an appetizer of fried green tomatoes (Excellent). My wife had the Scallops and I had the Bone in Pork Chop. Both items were cooked and presented perfectly. The wait staff was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Although we didn't have dessert at the restaurant, we did take a piece of carrot cake home. It was excellent and plenty for two people. They also have a bakery and a deli that were both very busy. JThomas is an excellent restaurant with a moderately priced menu. We live in Bluffton, SC, but will definitely return.More

Again JThomas hs wowed me. An early dinner before the Bananas game was a homerun. We both ordered the Pork Chop. This was truly a combination of flavors. Very "southern" rice with blackeye peas , collard greens, and a sweet potato puree. Pork chop was...done perfectly. This dinner scored 6 stars f I could. No matter how many times I eat there every single meal is just better than the last. Be sure to get there early , as seating is somewhat limited. Spoil your self, indulgeMore

We tried J Thomas for dinner with friends and it was great!!! I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly!! My husband has the braised beef shoulder and raved about it. Nice glass of wine and the service was good. Waitress was attentive but...not intrusive. We were not rushed even when we looked up and realized we were the last table there. Only negative is they don’t take reservations- which is something they need to reconsider. Not everyone wants to eat at 6:15 in order to get a table. Being able to make a reservation would be awesomeMore
