Restaurant details

Went to this restaurant for lunch and were the ONLY customers there. We were not welcomed into the store but we were glared at by an old woman until we ordered from her. When asking her what she recommended, she kept shoving the menu in our faces to look at. We ordered a simple pepperoni pizza for the three of us. After paying the OUTRAGEOUS PRICE for one pizza ($23) we sat our selves and waited. (Again no thank you from the woman at counter) we sat there for some time waiting on the pizza and finally the chef comes out and says I Burnt your pizza I'm making you a new one. Not even an apology. After waiting again we finally got the pizza. The guy literally rushed it and threw it on our table not even saying sorry or enjoy the pizza. He then instead rushed off to sign papers for some building inspector it seems.

The service is extremely poor and the workers are grouchy and rude.

And as they prep their pizza toppings for the day the guy doesn't were gloves in the kitchen DISGUSTING.

WILL NEVER GO BACK

We love Jonah's! We have been coming here for years. We have also had the same waiter for years! They are always kind and happy to see us. The pizza is delicious, no matter what kind you get. My husband and son love the fire sticks appetizer. We also love the pizza rolls. Yum! My daughter's favorite is their cinnamon rolls. Any and all of their bakery items are delicious!

Ate at Jonah's tonight. Service was fast and the beer was cold. Wings were average. Pizza was average. I was a little disappointed in the wimpy crust after all of the brick oven hype. They have thousands of ways to customize the pizzas with several sauce choices and many many toppings. Good place with average pizza.

Great pizza, good salads, great beer. Service is always good. They often have music in the back room on Friday night. If you don't want to hear loud music, you can sit in the front room and the level of music allows you to have good conversation. They also have a variety of sweets and they bake fresh bread every day. Its right near the square in Forsyth, just about a mile off the interstate. Easy to get to.

What a great find! We were traveling on spring break with our 2 kids and were very tired of all of the restaurant chains...Waffle House, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, etc. we stumbled upon Jonah's when we were looking for pizza. Thankfully we didn't eat at the Pizza Hut around the corner.

Jonah's has fantastic brick oven pizza, good beer selection in a town where only 2 restaurants serve alcohol on weekends, and a delicious baked goods. They offer gluten free crust too. Also homemade bread on their sandwiches and daily soup specials.

Great service too.

A gem among the ordinary!
