“Always great: Cafe J”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is a wonderful, quiet, lovely place to eat. It is right across from the Tech campus. We had lunch, March 2013. The service is excellent. The restaurant is very pretty with water color paintings on the walls that are for sale. The food and desserts are great.

“Good special event venue”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten at J's several times and always have bee satisfied. Good solid menu with a range of culinary experiences and tastes to satisfy most discerning diners. Not for the weak of wallet however, so expect to pay a little more than at some other local restaurants. Interestingly right by Texas Tech University but unlikely to appeal to the average student taste or budget. Behind the restaurant is one of the hottest clubs in town for 21 and over (strictly enforced).

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great service and food. Atmosphere one of the best in town. Not great for young families but for special occasions, datres etc it is hard to beat. The coctail lounge in the back was a "happening place"

“An old standby”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is a great place for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is more interesting when you know that this area was once part of St. Mary-on-the-Plains Hospital.

“Yummm”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Had the green chile soup, fantastic. Ashton, our waiter recommended the soup. He provided us with great friendly service, he was attentive to our needs. Their homemade breads are soooo good too, easy to overindulge. The restaurant is right across from TT campus. Besides the restaurant they have a neat martini bar area in the bad, casual seating and on the weekends live music. Check this place out.
