Great food and great service. Biscuits and bread service was almost enough to be a meal!

Seated promptly when everyone arrived. Cocktails well done. Busy and loud. Delicious food — southern comfort. Fried chicken and biscuits were perfect. Friendly server — Malachi. A little pricey, but we’ve been before so knew what to expect.

There was a long delay on our lunch entrees and when they finally arrived, fries in two of the meals were cold. The server had to bring us two new sets of fries but by the time they arrived (a second delay), I had eaten my lobster roll.

Had a great business lunch. Food and service was great. Only complaint was I asked for a table in a more "quiet" space and it wasn't really one available.

We went on Sunday evening and there was a prix fixe menu for dinner. The meal started with deviled eggs, a salad, and biscuits for the table- all which were flavorful and delicious.

We ordered fried chicken and grilled catfish as the main courses and chose our 3 sides: strawberries, brussel sprouts, and fingerling potatoes. So much food!

The fried chicken portions are enormous and the catfish was 2 filets. Both had excellent flavor profiles that complimented well with the sides chosen.

Dinner ended with a brown sugar tarte. Truthfully, it was a little sweet for my taste but it was a nice touch to have dessert included.

Our waitress, Liz, was very professional and attentive, making the experience even better.

Major decline in service since our last visit. Either understaffed or inexperienced. Hope they address as JCT has been a favorite for more than a decade.

We have been going to jct for years and we were pretty disappointed this time. It was so noisy we couldn't really have a conversation. Also 2 of our party ordered the pork chop and both chops were quite tough and fatty. The service wasn't the best but I feel it wasn't the waiters fault. He comped us bread but we don't eat bread☹️just not up to standards of this restaurant.

Crowded Sat night. Appreciated complimentary valet. Lighting kept flicking and with curtains drawn, room felt claustrophobic. Cocktails were too subtle given portion/cost. Expected a deeper wine list - overabundance of sweet varietals. Pork and Rabbit were excellent.

All of the staff were VERY nice and helpful. Unfortunately, that's the best I can say about our visit. Our bar drinks took forever to arrive at the table. Although I appreciated being able to order a veggie plate off-menu, it was highly oversalted. The worst part, however, was the noise level. There were only four of us, but we could only converse with the person immediately next to each of us -- and our throats were still sore from shouting to each other. We used to love this place, but never again.

Known for its fried chicken, this is a great place to come for good food. Not many items to choose from but all are very good. $$$- expect to pay at least $30 per person.

I had eaten there before and had enjoyed it but met a friend from out of town and had different food experience. Wanted salad with grilled chicken and the chicken was very disappointing. Dry, very thin breast that was pretty horrible. Wait staff was average- never came back to refresh water and tea or just generally check if food was tasty. Cool location with lots of shopping around for after lunch browsing.

Took a client from Chicago for lunch. Outstanding all around, as usual! She got the fried chicken sandwich and said it was amazing. Have loved JCT for years - it’s simple, southern, fresh and not fussy!

I loooooved the table rolls with honey butter! The collard greens were definitely my 2nd favorite dish. Nice atmosphere for sure, but hard af to get an uber to pick you up because they don’t show up on the map.

Sunday service is always the best. Food, service and music is stellar. It's great for a date night or time with friends. Take someone you love and head to JCT.

As always, the food was outstanding! However, for the first time ever, the service was very bad. The waitress was not pleasant, no smile, no welcome to JCT, nothing. Forgot to bring items to us, Never came back to the table to see if we needed anything (we had to flag her down to get additional drinks, etc) and left out part of our meal from the doggie bag.

Shanea our server was GREAT! She made the experience fun and enjoyable. The food was fantastic and I love the way you have designed the menu option, it's a great idea to set the starters and desserts for brunch. So good! Everything was cooked perfectly and it was delicious! Thanks for another great meal experience!
