“Nice place for lunch”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We were in Norfolk for a business meeting and the receptionist at our meeting suggested J's.
We received quick service during the noon hour and I had the Flat iron filet cooked to perfection.
Pricing was very reasonable . I would go there again next time I was in town.

“Nice atmosphere, slow service, subpar food.”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

J's steakhouse looks absolutely great from the outside in. The interior is a bit dusty and overly spacious given the number of people that I've seen eating here.

The food itself is alright. The steaks aren't amazing, but they are fairly decent. The lunch sandwiches and burgers are decently sized and taste adequate. Surprisingly, their shrimp and seafood is above average, which is a rarity for a place in the middle of the country. For my wife and I, none of their food really stands out as excellent.

Don't go if you are in a rush, or if you want a great bang for your buck. Do go if you would like a quiet atmosphere to enjoy some time with your significant other or some friends. It is an excellent place for that sort of gathering.

“Awesome Salmon!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

There are plenty of steaks to choose from, make no mistake, but I am a big fan of salmon. The sweet and spicy salmon at J's is definitely worth checking out. I also enjoyed the fried pickle chips-a different sort of starter.

“great food, you chose your atmosphere”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Like J's. You can chose if you want a more formal quiet atmosphere by sitting in the dining room. Or a more casual by sitting in bar area, or even on the patio. One of Norfolk's best!
