A word from JP's Bar & Grill
They say variety is the spice of life, and with a blend of American, middle eastern and a splash of vegetarian dishes, you should have no trouble finding the perfect dish to fit your tastes. Our seafood is never frozen, steaks are hand cut daily, and our lamb sliders are ground on site. Our burgers are the very best in the downtown area and we feature daily creative specials for both lunch and dinner.

    We went to dinner here with another couple. All four of us got something different and everything was good. The only suggestion I would have is a little more chocolate "garnish" for the peanut butter pie!

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Had a reservation for 10 people on the patio. Our table was given away. We squeezed in a table of 4 in the back corner until other people moved. We had to move our food and drinks and push tables together. Then to be treated rudely by a server because we were in her way while we were making our own table of 10. The apology was not sincere and they didn't over to comp anything. We will go back but with strict instructions for our reservations or we will leave

    We tried this for my wife's birthday and we won't go back. My salad was excellent, my duck was skimpy, and the waiter tried to talk me out of the salad that was the only thing that filled me up. My wife's crab cakes were positively awful--cold at first, and after we sent them back they were just nasty. The waiter seemed to have a hearing problem. We won't be back.

    The service was wonderful, fully attentive without being bothersome. So happy they take reservations, since the town was full of quilters looking for dinner before an evening event, otherwise, we could probably not gotten a table with the crowds. Food was good, the pork chops were a little dry, but tasty. The lamb kabobs were excellent, cooked exactly as ordered, medium rare. Overall, a very good dinner.

    I always enjoy going to JP's whether it's for a few beers or for a good meal. My only complaint is that they don't honor a reservation. Making a reservation with them is no different than simply walking in the door. I had a reservation at 7:15PM and had to wait 45 min. while others with no reservations were being seated. If you're not going to honor reservations than just say "no we don't take reservations."

    JP's menu isn't as extensive as some restaurants, but it does offer a variety of entrees in a moderate price range. There were four of us and all ordered something different. I had the crab cakes (which I had eaten there before) and my husband had the special, which was salmon. Both of us were satisfied with our meals. The portions are generous and sides are included. We arrived about 5:30 and the inside was practically empty but with a wait for tables outside. We wanted inside anyway and within 30 minutes the inside was packed as well. TVs line the walls, although we didn't pay much attention to them. I would recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food at a reasonable price, but not for a "quiet, romantic" dinner.

    It would nice if the menu had a bit more variety. In my opinion, it seemed a bit limited and that left me feeling somewhat disappointed. Nothing that was offered seemed to really get my attention, so I had to pick something and hoped I would like it.

    We had a group of 15 and had great service. Our table was ready and waiting. There was plenty of room! We were not crammed in at all. The place was a little noisy, but that was fine for us because we had a large group and kids. Probably not the place to go for quiet, romantic dining but great if your looking for a bar type environment. It was also appropriate for children. We will definitely go back.

    This was a great place for my fiance and I to get away for the evening. We had the mushrooms as an appetizer; they were juicy on the inside, crisp on the outside and the sauce (lemon, butter and garlic) was to die for. My fiance had the New York strip; and it was cooked to perfection, full of flavor. I had the Cajun porkchops; they were juicy and flavorful, but not as good as the steak. Our server provided us with excellent service.

    This was our second time to J P's & we loved it. This time we took,some friendsl It was Valentine's day so JP's had a special menu not only for dinner meals but also for drinks. We had one of the special,drinks & it was delicious! The special dinner menu included (many of their top entrees , ) 1 appetizer, chioice of 2 entrees & 1 dessert all for $39.99. Also included was a salad. We were quite surprised.It was a eantastic deal at such a nice place with such great food & ambiance. There was even a small musical group there which was also,very good. It all helped to add to the wonderful experience we had at J P's. Our group had a great time & enjoyed a wonderful meal. Can't wait to go back to enjoy the outdoor patio in the summer!
