Looked for a good place between our house and our friends house and this was it. Wasn’t aware of it prior and we now a great place to meet.

The bar area is beautiful and the Christmas decorations made it very warm and inviting. Had drinks at the bar while waiting for our table.

Although not socially distanced, there was plenty of space between tables for us to feel comfortable.

Our waitress was so sweet and the service was fantastic without feeling rushed. The worst part of our entire evening was trying to decide what to order. After hearing the specials, it was even more difficult.

All of us were very happy with our dinners (lamb, seafood fra Diablo and veal parmx2). Everything was so fresh and we took home leftovers. For dessert we had apple cobbler to share and someone ordered gelato. We were not disappointed with any of our choices.

We will definitely be back to try more of the goodies on the menu. We were so busy enjoying ourselves that the only picture I took was of my glass of wine.

We had not been to JH since before the pandemic and glad we went back. Everything about our experience was fantastic. They seem to have kept their prices down too which surprised me.

Wait staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious. I had the lobster bisque and Jarrettown with veal. The bisque was creamy with plenty of lobster. Pasta is amazing.Great value for the price. Very affordable. The noise level is high - the only drawback.

None of the staff was masked. Just downright rude given the situation with the COVID pandemic. Spacing between tables was good and we felt safe there, but when staff came to our table without masks we did not feel safe. I mean really, if they're not wearing masks, who actually can trust that they wash after using the restroom. This is not political, it's a matter of public health.

The booth are to tight to sit comfortably. The dinning area is way too noisy to hold a conversation. Service is spotty at best; server nearly forget you; almost disappear; most requests has to be repeated.

Food is mediocre; and, bit on the expensive side.

On our reservation, I noted 65th Birthday; there was no acknowledgement of this which really suprised me. That said, our appetizers were very good; calamari and eggplant rollatini (delicious). My 3 children enjoyed your specialty beer selection. Everyone was happy with their entrees; both burger selections, scallops daily special, seafood special starter (as an entree) and house special. Although our waitress was very nice, it was difficult to get her attention. I have a feeling she was serving many tables and was doing the best she could. I had been here many, many years ago, probably a previous owner, and also a couple of years ago pre-Covid for lunch and really enjoyed the food. We will definitely be back.

I had one of the specials for dinner. I wish I could remember the full description. It was Pistachio crusted Wild White Bass (I think) with Butternut Squash Quinoa and a pear puree. I never had it before or seen on any other menu. It was Outstanding! Flavorful, Amazing. This wasn't my first time at Jarrettown, and it won't be my last.

Are lunch indoors with friends in a horrible rainy day. Waitress was friendly, food was delicious. We weren't rushed and enjoyed a delectable lunch special: fried green tomatoes stacked with crab salad.

Really enjoyed dinner. Everything was cooked to perfection. My only complaint would be when they wanted to take my plate when I simply put my fork down for a couple of minutes. 😂. Dinner was delicious

Overall good. Caesar salad was disappointing-romaine lettuce was warm and dressing was run of the mill. The chocolate soufflé was not a soufflé-it was a cupcake with chocolate sauce inside.

I ordered a meat and cheese platter paired with a glass of wine. The platter came but I waited and waited for my wine and finished the platter before the wine arrived.
Then, my steak was too well done and I had to send it back.
It appeared our waitress had one inside table and the rest either in another room or outside. It would have made more sense to give our table to a different waitress that was in the same room.
I get that restaurants are short staffed. Most people do not mind waiting for their meal, I do not. However, the staff has to make sure if food is being delivered, it's prepared properly, drinks accompany the meal, especially wine, and the waitress/waiters at least make an appearance so you can at least explain what you're missing.
The waitress did deduct the cost of a glass of wine, which I appreciated. The food ended up tasting very good.
I will give the restaurant another chance and return again in the future. I won't recommend to a friend yet.

All four of us were very happy with our meals. Two people had the beef special. One had the veal marsala and I had the Jarrettown special, shrimp and crab in a vodka cream sauce which was delicious. Our waitress was excellent under the circumstances. The restaurant was understaffed so she did the best she could. She was extremely pleasant the whole time (I would have been grumpy!!).

We like this restaurant because it has a nice outdoor patio with umbrellas. There's also a musician on weekends. The seafood entrees were very good. I usually order the grouper. This time it wasn't as tasty. It seemed to have too much sauce or oil which made it a little mushy. On the whole, it was a pleasant dining experience. Our server was terrific!

We highly recommended this restaurant, however during our entire lunch, we had to fight an army of flies that they wanted to eat our food
When we complaint about this, we were told that that they cannot do anything about the flies !!! However, this does not happen to us in any other restaurant
Probably you should take with you an insect repellent !!!!

Nice outdoor patio if the weather is decent. Quite a large menu. The dishes we tried, including the crab cakes and diver scallop salad, were very good. Our server tried valliantly to get our drinks and meal out in reasonable time, but it was clear that the restaurant was coping with the same understaffing issue as many others are. Still, we very much enjoyed the meal and the live music on the Saturday evening we dined there.
