The service that night (Feb 17) left a lot to be desired. They seemed to be completely understaffed for what appeared to be a normal Saturday night in the Old Market. When we arrived, there was no one manning the host station. We waited several minutes, then I went to the bar to inquire. I had to wait several minutes as there was no one manning the bar at the time either. Finally someone behind the bar delivering food to bar patrons offered to serve me. It still took several minutes, and being handed off between two different wait staff to be seated. Our drinks took quite a while to arrive after they were ordered. After that, however, things settled down. The waitress was sweet and extremely apologetic for the initial delays. Our food orders came out in a timely manner. The Loaded Pub Chips were excellent. We really liked the creamy, slightly spicy sauce on them. The 16 oz ribeye that we ordered came out more medium than medium rare. But everything tasted great.
It was a very nice restaurant , our server was very good but I think it was a very busy weekend so service was a bit slow. The food was excellent
Wedge salad lettuce discolored, service a little uneven, but I would not discourage anyone from going there. The entree chicken scallopini was good. It's a nice place.
It is a great location. When we arrived at 7 pm, I was surprised there was no one in the main dining area on a Saturday night. It was cold that night with some light snow, but still a surprise for the Old Market. Madison our server was great. The food was good . Really should be more crowded!
The food was delicious, the service was great and our meal came out promptly even with a larger party dining at the same time. It overall was a really nice night and I would definitely recommend it
Food was flavorful but meat and mashed potatoes were cool or moderately warm when presented. They brought out new mashed potatoes with the same result, but green beens came back too hot to eat.
Table service was sub-par, took 10-15 minutes to get drinks (beer/wine) yet restaurant was at 50% capacity at the time of our meal.
Went there for our anniversary, called ahead to even make them aware, only to find out they do not do anything for special occasions.
Restrooms were also less than desirable.
I would not recommend for anything beyond casual drinking.
We were disappointed in our salmon dish and thought it was overpriced. We were charged a fee to split the dish and the salmon was over cooked.
We waited 15 min to be greeted and get water. The table was in the bar near a freezing window with a reservation! Half of the people didn't like the food. Salmon was overlooked and pork was salty! The steaks were good however.
Good food but they were out of nearly every red wine.
A group of four was in town for a concert. Staying in the Old Market, we had numerous options to consider for dinner. Ultimately, we decided to try something different than the staples we were accustomed to (M’s Pub, Stokes, Jams, etc). I was extremely disappointed in the overall experience at J’s on Jackson. The menu looked great and we had heard good things, but it failed to live up to any of those measures.
We are not hard to please, but from the moment we walked in, it was underwhelming. Our waitress worked hard, but she was also the hostess and probably the bar tender as well. There was little flexibility in what they offered for happy hour and service was very slow. The restaurant was not busy, but apppeared to be severely understaffed.
We had a group of four and everyone’s meal was average at best. We weren’t in a hurry, so we were able to wait for everything to arrive, even the appetizers.
I am dissappointed in the overall experience and would not recommend dining here. With so many other great options in the Old Market, go there instead.
Nothing worth writing about. Food just ok. Would not recommend or go back.
Recommended by some locals. Visited early in the week and was very quiet, not busy. Service was prompt and helpful. Food variety was good, even for the picky eater in the group. Good flavor and value.
It was great, the atmosphere is perfect for a date
Had a nice time here. Server was very friendly. The lamb burger was delicious.
The bar has way more ambiance than the restaurant. We were looking for a romantic dinner but it was tough with the lights up so bright and the stark decorations/wall/floor.
Everything was great and would be back when downtown
Great service staff and the food was second to none
Great service running late to go to a show and they helped get us there on time.
Fabulous food & service. Filet scampi was best steak We have ever eaten ! Will definitely go back
Delicious! The steak was a little over cooked (I ordered medium rare and it was medium), but still very good!
I don't recommend eating steak dinners outside - the food cooled down quickly and the little gnats and flies were very annoying. I would imagine just drinks outside would be great!
