Description: During renovations, workers found in the floor beams a signed inspection stamp--November 5, 1890--with the name of tobacco inspector John J. Jeffries. We named the restaurant after him. We’ve designed our menu based on local, seasonal, sustainable and organic agriculture and delicious recipes. Please join us and taste the difference of local farm-to-table sustainable cuisine in one of Lancaster's best fine dining restaurants. As the Chefs and Owners of John J Jeffries, we believe you will find our passion for supporting local businesses and preserving the land we live on, to be contagiously obvious in how we run our restaurant. All of our meats are raised locally, confinement-free on fresh green grass pastures. No hormones, antibiotics, steroids or forced-fertilization occurs. Our produce is local organic or chemical free. We use local grass fed cream, butter and eggs. We also provide sustainable seafood and support sustainable fisheries.

There is not much to say except that we really enjoyed the high quality of the food, the service was top notch and the atmosphere is unmatched in Lancaster. This is a "must do" in Lancaster.

As a person involved in agriculture, I really appreciate the commitment that JJJ has made to using local agriculture product in the dishes on its menu. Personally, however, I am not much of an explorer when it comes to food and I find the menu kind of funky. Portions are also a little smaller than I usually am used to. The atmosphere is great. Parking sometimes gets full.

We dined here as a late Valentine Day celebration and the service at the bar and firing our meal was so superb. It is evident that the team works together to provide an excellent dining experience. The food was simple delicious and original. My husband had the bim bop as an appetizer and the truth(steak tartare) both were excellent. I had the duck over a sweet potato mash also excellent. For dessert we had French press and peanut butter cheesecake. I have also dined here with a large group that was also an excellent experience!

This is one of our favorite places for dinner! The menu selections are so creative as well as the presentation. Hunter, our server, was very attentive, pleasant, making sure our dining experience was a pleasant one. John J. Jeffries continues to exceed our expectations!
