Great service. jill was our food server and spoiled my clients with great service and a great personality.
She is such a pro and so friendly.
Briana was also very good knowing I would be a couple of minutes last due to the rain.

Met for lunch and as always, was not disappointed. I typically get their mahi tacos. (If you haven’t had them, they’re great. I get them unblackened.)

On Thursday, I deviated from my norm and split the tomato basil pizza and a salad with my guest. Both were outstanding.

Both Mara and Erika are fantastic and make sure your glass is always full and it was easy to catch up with my guest in a relaxed environment such as JTS. It has become one of my favorites in the area.

The biggest event of the year in town and you think they would clean the place. The men's room smelled like a sewer and the floors in the dinning area were not clean. Can't believe with all of those people in town you would not have your best effort to impress. Wonder what the kitchen looks like. Ordered the rib-eye, tough, fatting and a poor cut. The chef should have seen that before it went on the grill.

Nice food, excellent service and ambiance. A bit noisy, especially before the hockey game but definitely a place to get your "game/fan face" on.

We had dinner there before going to a concert at the Honda Centre across the street. The proximity to the venue was perfect for us. We had reserved but even though we arrived an hour early they were kind enough to seat us. We found the atmosphere to be comfortably the waitress to be friendly, attentive and efficient and the food to be excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone especially if they are going to an event at the Honda Centre.

Food was terrible. Ordered blackened Chicken sandwich. It was brought out loaded with lettuce, tomato, sauce and with a raw close to uncooked piece of chicken breast. Chicken was so uncooked that I could not cut it.

Food and beer are over priced for what you get. The server was pleasant and helpful. She did offer to replace my meal, and was with it enough to realize I did not want a replacement chicken sandwich.

The only place that has more over priced food and drink would be the Honda Center across the street from JT Schnid’s.

We had the reservations and was sat immediately. Our table had no silverware, no salt/pepper. We waited close to 45 minutes for our food. The young female food runner with glasses said she’d get us silverware, but never returned. Our server had gotten 6 tables at once & was running. I had to steal silverware from another servers section. Never did get salt & pepper. Food was decent. Server came back around when we were done with our meal. Very disappointed. But your restaurant is where we go before the games.

ordered a burger and asked for medium, when I got the burger it was raw in the middle !!!!!!!!!
there was no compensation for the delay or the way it was cooked. I mean how difficult is it to cook a burger and not be raw

The food was of poor quality we immediately had to send it back and the worst part was that the server wasn’t surprised at all. The service had good, she was very attentive and friendly but the place just seems like it’s on its last leg. When you walk in you wonder if they even own a vacuum because there is trash all over the floor.

We had a large group, a couple of them were late. The place wasn't crazy busy, but it seemed we could never find our waitress. One time we did tell her we weren't ready and to come back in a couple of minutes. Almost 10 minutes went by, I finally got up and found someone to go find her. Overall wasn't bad, food was good. But a little slow on the service.
