    Birthday dinner with four family. Restaurant was not busy on a Tuesday night and we got fantastic service from our waiter Chris. Started with appetizers, we are glad that the Lobster Dogs are back on the menu, also had Arantini and steak egg rolls. Two filet were done just right, one had the Diane Style prep. Veal Francaise and the Airline Chicken breast rounded at the entrees. Side dishes as alway were done well, would recommend any of them. J Fords has an extensive beverage menu representing a good variety of spirits. Completed the dinner with the vanilla butter cake desert. We are always happy to get back to J. Fords.

    If you are looking for a quiet dinning experience remember to put that on your reservation so you can be seated away from big parties. I brought my husband in for his birthday. We were seated in a room with 2 large parties one of which was extremely loud. We could not hear the server or each other. We will be back as we dine at J Fords several times a year.

    A lovely meal in a beautiful setting with incredible service. We’ve had Patrick as our waiter before and he’s the best. My husband tried and loved the short rib special. From our wedge salads to our desserts, the food was so so good. It was a little noisier than normal due to two large parties in our room but that can’t be helped and we were happy they were having a great time.

    We were there to celebrate 2 of 3 friends' birthdays. I had Kelly's Salad (my favorite), friend 1 had the beet salad, and friend 2 had Lobster Bisque. We decided to have the Maryland crab cake as an entree rather than an appetizer. There were only 2 servings left, so I had the shrimp cocktail as my entree. We ordered 2 side dishes (Farmer Side Vegetable-zucchini cheese dish and sweet potato casserole). Our server brought another side (mushrooms). What a great meal!! Everything tasted good and the service was outstanding! It was quiet, so we could chat and relax. A great place to eat!

    We came from Greencastle to celebrate a special occasion with another couple (visiting from Chicago) and had the most perfect evening. Everything was delicious. The steaks were done to our exact specification (including one ordered "Pittsburgh" style) and the 1 order of scallops was prepared in a perfect reduction sauce that didn't drown the scallops. The cocktails were generously prepared. We had a large booth in a quiet part of the restaurant that gave us privacy and allowed us to visit. But our evening rated the perfect 5 because our waiter was outstanding - gave us just what we needed to know, made excellent recommendations after we narrowed our choices, knew when we were ready for next course, and didn't hover around nor have to be flagged down -- he just magically appeared when we needed something! We all concluded he was possibly the best waiter we had ever encountered, (and our friends travel A LOT)! I'm just sorry I don't remember his name to give him the recognization he deserves! Hope whoever monitors J Ford's reviews passes it on to him and the owners!

    Thank you so much for this kind and detailed description of your visit. Your server's name is Pat and he does a great job. He will definitely be recognized for this review in an upcoming meeting.

    This is our third time at J Fords and we finally found the trick to our concerns about the noise level : go during the week! The restaurant was not nearly as busy, resulting in a much quieter environment. Our food was amazing, and servers were friendly and attentive. They did make a small error and brought us the wrong food at first, which did not bother us at all, but we got a free dessert out of it anyways (because they insisted).
