Steakhouse
J2 Steakhouse is a new restaurant in a familiar space opening in the Spring of 2018, by a family who is just as fond of great food as they are of preserving the past.
After operating since 1886, the Lewisville Feed Mill on Main St in Old Town had seen its fair share of history & reinvention. There is something special about what the Polser family created over 100 years ago that lends itself to preservation. It's rare to find a restaurant that feels so comfortable in its own place and right - so written into the lore and landscape of a neighborhood. It seems as if J2 has always somehow resided at 119 E Main.
Today, J2 Steakhouse serves elevated Texas fare with a wonderful selection of dry aged locally sourced grassfed beef in the heart of downtown Lewisville. The dining experience is curated by a staff who strive together to maintain a warm yet unobtrusive balance of southern hospitality and high quality service.

Party of 2 for an early-ish Saturday date night. We were seated at a nicely private booth table near the bar. Ambiance in this building is very pleasant. Not too fancy, not too casual, not too loud, just right.

Service was attentive and hit the right balance of friendly and professional. Very knowledgeable about the menu when asked for recommendations.

We ordered the butter poached lobster and fried ribs small plates along with a beet salad. The butter poached lobster was outstanding and worth a try although I probably wouldn't order again due to price level relative to other items on the menu. The fried ribs were crispy and tasty but the novelty wore off after a few bites...better for a party of four. The beet salad is a well-balanced and flavorful star menu item and I would order this again and again.

For mains, we split a ribeye burger and chicken fried steak. The burger was good and very juicy with good seasoning and char. A solid, but basic burger. The fries were incredibly underwhelming, limp, and very under-seasoned. The chicken fried steak was a nice cut of meat ruined by a couple factors. Soggy crust (even the parts not covered in gravy) and almost complete lack of seasoning. The gravy, potatoes, and green beans were good but couldn't make up for the disappointing centerpiece.

In summary, I would rate service and ambiance among the best in the area but food quality was very inconsistent.

It was a nice evening. Right now they have a limited menu but they had something for everyone. My husband had the ribeye and he said it was great. I had the filet and it was the best I had had. I am not a huge fan of Filet, but this was tender and cooked perfectly. I would order again. The brussel sprouts are delicious. It was a nice a relaxing evening.

Terrible service, we split a 14oz strip and it was cut in half which was about 1/4 inch thick.

The only thing in this place I would recommend is the bread.

This place will close down in about a year

We were celebrating an anniversary and this was our first time on a restaurant since the shelter in place orders. The staff was very professional and friendly. They genuinely wanted us to enjoy our experience. We felt very safe and the food was delicious! They also have a large patio area. J2 is a locally owned restaurant and I hope others will support them as we begin to return to normal.

First time out in two months, Mother's Day. Everything was perfect. We sat outside in the shade. The pace of service was wonderful, plenty of time to enjoy the weather, food and ambiance. The shrimp cocktail for two was spicy and plentiful. The steak was cooked to perfection, very flavorful. Our server Anna was knowledgeable and attentive. We are looking forward to our next visit.

This was our third trip to J2. Was somewhat disappointed to find a limited menu and out of Blanton's. The limited menu was my fault as I missed the large notice about the menu.

Food was good but for the money didn't really have that wow feeling when we left. Will probably try again but after careful consideration.

We visited for a first time for a special occasion for 3 of us. Our server was delightful and attentive. They have a nice selection of wines and whiskeys. The food was mostly good, but it seemed a bit pretentious and over priced. All the food has sauces, nuts, special preparations, so it was a struggle to find something for a limited palate in our group. The highlights of our meal were the caesar salad, pretzel bread, and beef tatake starter. The scallops were very good. I tried the beef Wellington, which was decent, but not something I'll order again. The sides, though plentiful, were all a bit much in their flavors. The brussel sprouts were way too sweet, almost drenched in a glaze. The risotto was mushy and also sweet. We did like the broccolini, it had a nice smoky flavor, but we'd asked for it without the sauce on it, so I imagine it was probably normally sweet also. We split an espresso creme brulee. I didn't think it had much of a coffee flavor, plus the custard hadn't fully set. The decor is really interesting and I loved the wood and bits of ther original building. We want to go back and try the dry aged steaks and maybe some different sides. Be prepared to spend some cash.

My boyfriends 25th birthday the special occasion the night we attended dinner at J2. We kept the drinks going, ordered an appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 sides, and had dessert that was on the house. Everything listed above was delicious with excellent plating. Very excited to go during lunch.

We went to J2’s on 2/16 for brunch to celebrate our 41st anniversary. We were told immediately that the kitchen was short-staffed, so please bear with them. The food was good, but service was terrible. We had read so many reviews about how good J2’s was, but we were very disappointed. Friends who were with us had a previous experience with poor service at J2’s. We were also getting information about using this restaurant to cater a future bridal shower. The hostess said she was going to contact a manager? to get the information we were asking about. Never heard back from her. We are long-time residents of this area, and want them to succeed, but improvements are needed. Hopefully, evening dinner experiences are better.

Food was good although the caesar salad wasn't as fresh as it could have been. Some of the lettuce was brown.
