J's at the Village reviews from OpenTable diners
  • This is a wonderful place!

    Dined on 11/18/2012
    This is a wonderful place! The food was great, atmosphere was condusive for conversation all around the table. No blaring music to impeed the reason we sit around the table with friends and family, that is to have a time to share our thoughts. The menu selection was not overwhelming, and the service was friendly and easy going. Whenever we go to Gettysburg it will be on the top of our dining list. Thank you J's for a wonderful experience.

    Recommended bison meatloaf was very sweet, and made more so by smokey ketchup. Seafood pasta was very garlicky. Not bad, for the culinary wasteland of Gettysburg, but not great.

Server we had was very friendly and knowledgable on the menu. Definitely would go out of my way to return to the cool "mini bar" on my own or certainly come again with a date.

    My husband and I ate here recently. The food was good; however, I did not get what I ordered. I wanted a crab cake dinner and instead was brought the crab cake sandwich. In addition to that , just as the server was bringing me my side salad (ordered a la carte), she also brought our dinners at the same time. I would have enjoyed my salad first instead of feeling I needed to eat my hot dinner before it turned cold. Server and maitre d' were both very nice.

    Perhaps it has to do with expectations....when I read fine dining. This place is definitively casual dining, and reminds me of a Diner rather than a Restaurant. Starts with the booths in the entrance and then continues once you see their menu. The food was OK. They were, however very friendly.

    We chose J's because of gluten free recommendation. We were a small loud group, given a quiet booth on a not busy Tues day nite. Gluten free fish very bland but blissfully safe. Gluten free menu was provided. Figs for dessert great. Crab trio great.

    Had a good experience at J's this week. We had the boneless ribs and steak, both were excellent. They have a good selection of craft beers and the house wines are pretty good. The service was excellent (only a group of 6, another couple, and us in the restaurant). The dessert menu is very good also, the flourless chocolate cake is excellent. The only bad thing is the coffee. Awful. As another reviewer said, there are only a few very good restaurants in Gettysburg. J's is one of them.

    Dined on 7/16/2012
    The variety of choices at a reasonable price was good. I had the fish and chips. The fish was good but the batter was too heavy. There was an apparent disconnect between the restaurant and Open Table since although I received a confirmation and reminder of my reservation, the restaurant did not have any record of it. This caused some problems because there were no tables available for a party of 6. The staff did their best to accommodate us however.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    This restaurant pretends to be more than it is. Our waitress was unfamiliar with the menu and couldn't answer simple questions about particular dishes,mandndidnt know what vintage the wones by the glass were. I ordered figs from the appetizers, and am baffled about whether they mistakenly made me a fig dessert. My husband's scaly had tough scallop and dried-out mussels, and my salmon was pretty mediocre, surrounded by a creamy pearl couscous with crabs that was too rich and tasteless to more than pick at. The chef would do well to concentrate on cooking the basic entree before trying to do fancy sauces and dishes that are too complicated for the skills in the kitchen and the wait staff.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/21/2012
    During our visit to Gettysburg over about five days, we dined at four local establishments. Unfortunately the town is so overrun with tourists, that the quality of food and service has suffered. J's at the Village was the best of them, but to be blunt, a Chipotle or Noodles and Company would easily become one of the best places in town to eat. For the other restaurants (not J's) the quality of the food and service and suffered to a large extent. But since the tourists keep coming, what is the incentive to improve? None that I could see. Back to J's the salad was good (they actually added vegetables, unlike The Blue Parrot). Our food was really fairly good, but the dining room overlooked an assemblage of very tack stores.

    We had a great experience at J's. I live in NYC and am a bit of a foodie. There were a lot of burgers and fries in Gettysburg, but J's had a great variety and it was delicious! I had friend pickles for an appetizer and vegetable couscous. Yummy! Great beer and wine selection and wonderful service. It was our best eating in Gettysburg!!

    We were traveling and staying in Gettysburg for a couple of days. Once again, OpenTable was reliable in finding us a terrific place to eat. The service was friendly and the food was great. I had a great beet salad and amazing short ribs. My husband had tender grilled scallops. We topped it off with a port soaked fig and marscapone cream desert - yumm. In addition, the prices were really reasonable. We highly recommend this restaurant if/when you are in Gettysburg.

    Dined on 4/5/2012
    After waiting 1.5 hours for our dinner(with children), we left! Please note there were only three other tables having dinner(5:30 reservation), so this was not a busy time. We spoke to other people in town and they indicated that this was a common occurrence. I realize that this is a tourist area and most people will not be repeat customers, but this does not give them the right to treat a paying customer with complete disregard. I seriously believe he forgot about internet reviews and people should be strongly cautioned about eating at this establishment.

    My fiance and I were looking for a place to eat in Gettysburg, and we found J's on OpenTable. It was definitely a good choice. The food was a little pricey, but it was absolutely worth every penny. The service was friendly and personal, and you never have to worry about your drink being empty. There was always someone around to make sure that everything was ok at the table, but the servers did not hover. Parking in Gettysburg can be a pain, but there is a public parking lot right behind the restaurant. It's also pretty easy walking distance from the center of town or the outskirts of the battlefield.

    I have eaten at J's several times in the past, they consistently have two things. Great food but poor service. My latest visit was no exception. The quality of the food and the poor service just do not match up. I am not sure if it is even the fault of the waiter/waitress as it seems that they are just under staffed to maintain a high level of service. Regardless the food is very good and as long as you don't have high expectations for service it is still a great place.

    Food was good rather than great...service was very pleasant and helpful. The menu was not particularly exciting and we all ended up with what felt like the very safe choices of steak...which were as expected. The overall "night out" experience really let down by the very drab surroundings...felt like a very dull and dreary fifties restaurant.Needs a rehab...now!!
