“Average - Menu Too Big”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

It does look busy quite often, since there's not much going on food wise on the northern border of Jackson.
I had a sneaking suspicion of things to come, as I read through the overly ambitious menu.
Over 100 items on the menu. IMO that just screams average.
Trying to be all things to all people, it just doesn't work. It's impossible to have 100 dishes and maintain any standards.
Good friendly service.
I had a "Philly" style burger,(flavorless gray meat) that was on a supplemental page of the already large menu. I wouldn't order it again. Ho hum.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I've been to Java Moon many times over the last few years and have yet to review it. The menu has a lot of choices from wraps and salads to pasta. The atmosphere is cozy and the service is good. I've never had a bad meal here. It's a great place to grab a bite and by far the best place in the area. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

“Love this little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I am a local to the area, the food here is always good, it is a converted building I believe years ago was a comfort station welcome station stop going toward Six Flags. They opened this restaurant and I am never unhappy. I do have may favorite things on the menu. I had visited their previous location. This place is nice clean, I describe as a gourmet eatery for lunch style food. It isn't a Night dining kind of place, but the food is the focus, I always stop by when I am going to the outlets shopping. But it depends on the parking which is tight. They are usually busy.
