“Large Portions, Good Service”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We enjoyed our red seafood pizza. Toppings included lobster and shrimp, nice thin crust. My companion and I shared a huge salad which contained a variety of greens and the usual salad ingredients; dressing was excellent. Portions are really huge so we often share a dish or plan on bringing home a doggy bag. Service was very attentive. This is a very popular restaurant and there is often a waiting line after 5pm or so on weekends.

“Great service, food just ok”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Driving home from a late night working I took the opportunity to hit JG. Service was attentive. I had a salad that was just ok. The main course was the carbonara. Sounds and looks good but the dish is really a failure as the meats just crumble away to tiny pieces and are left at the bottom of the plate. Serving was huge so props for serving size

“Not as good as before”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Large portions but they seem to have cut back on the sauce you get and the two small pieces of bread you get are not much bigger than croutons, not what is has been in the past, don't think we will be going anymore!

“Barely adequate”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Just barely average ( for chain style restaurants ) High marks: Great server & Outstanding cleanliness including rest room plus huge portion size.Low marks FOOD Quality. Dined with party of six, nobody suggested returning. Kinda hard to find building, just look for Burger King sign, if you insist on trying this establishment. I recomend you skip it.
