Wife and I ate at Jams for a Sunday brunch and it was fantastic! I had the grits and my wife had the Benedict. Both were excellent and we look forward to our next visit!

Loved everything about our dining experience! Love Jams!

Would like to suggest a different play list. Same 4 bands playing same 4 songs as the last time we had our dining experience 6 months ago.

There are more songs/bands out there than ColdPlay and Maroon5.

Great Lunch!! Birthday lunch. Sat outside. Very nice but cold. With COVID I would suggest the restaurant put heaters outside to seat more patrons safely.

The food is mediocre and the price is a bit high for what you get. I've always loved Jams but it seems as they've grown the quality of food has gotten worse.

The service was great. By mistake, a waitress knocked over a glass of wine on our table. The manager took care of our appetizer, first round of drinks, and offered dry cleaning services. Not to mention the food was delicious.

We always love Jam’s, is truly one of our favorites. The music was VERY loud this time though, which made all the guests turn up their conversations really loud. But other than that we enjoyed dinner here.

Great Brunch menu! We were in a hurry to get to musical at Orpheum and told waitress we were in a hurry. Man the food came out fast and was great. We really appreciate their concern for our situation.

Quickly seated our party of 6 at a table large enough for everyone. Service was superb. Variety of foods available but all we tasted were fantastic. Jalapeño Lobster Bisque was phenomenal. Braised short rib tacos served with side of Mac n cheese were tender and perfectly paired. Salads were fresh and excellent tasting. Highly recommend Jams.

Best bruschetta I've ever had. First restaurant we've been to in a very long time where myself and both my kids loved everything. We finally found a new favorite restaurant we can agree on.

We love Jams but this experience was not a good one. We witnessed management snapping at the wait staff, which is uncomfortable and unprofessional. The food was lacking in flavor and the service was slow. Jams is a great restaurant but this experience was disappointing.

I was taking my teenage daughters to a play at the Orpheum and decided to have dinner at Jams before the show. There wasn’t anything that wow’ed us at dinner. It was fine. Nothing to complain about. Food was ok. One of the girls mentioned that the place seemed too nice (ambience) for the basic burgers and sandwiches on the menu.

Food and service was just ok. Nothing remarkable. You could always count on the original location to be great - not so much at the downtown spot.

Went here for brunch - definitely exceeded our expectations. The brunch menu items were outstanding. We enjoyed the Jams omelet (short rib and veggies), the crab cake benedict, and the shrimp and grits. Our server was outstanding. The space has a nice warehouse/old market vibe. Had a great experience - we'll be back for sure.

We were very disappointed. We had been here several times before, and we have never had a problem. I made reservations in advance, and we were made to sit at a high top table instead of a booth due to the fact that there were only two of us. We have never run into this before. During the stay, there were plenty of open booths. The food was also extremely greasy. We told the waitress about this. No apology or any offering was made to us. I will not be returning due to this visit.
