    I really enjoyed this place, it had a nice vibe and the music was good. The service was excellent, and the food and drinks were delicious. The only negative was that my daughter’s food wasn’t hot so she had to send it back. Other than that, everything else was great. I would like to try Sunday brunch next.

    Took my girlfriend there for her birthday. We both loved our meals and the sound level of the music. She had chicken and waffles and I had the French toast, both were delicious!! Only suggestion was to have breakfast sides on the menu. I had to ask if you could Order a side of bacon, which she replied yes. Overall a great experience.

    Unusual and great food. A hidden gem hidden away at the Golf Club behind Whole Foods. Simple menu prepared by a real Chef! Casual place with interesting menu that includes Ox Tail Stew that was delicious and beautifully served with plantains and cabbage....sounds odd but delicious!

    The food was very good. The service was excellent. I would have liked see the golf course a little better. Maybe the arrangement of the table could have been a little better so that we could have had a view of the gold course. I will be back to dine at this restaurant again.

    The restaurant is in the clubhouse of a country club. We sat outdoors with a view of the golf course. We ordered Shrimp & Grits and Chicken & Waffles. Both dishes were delicious and generous. Te chef was extremely friendly and engaging. He came out to chat with us and gifted us a small order of oxtails, even though they weren't on the lunch/brunch menu. They were so flavorful. If you're ever in the area and hungry, stop by for a great meal. You won't be sorry.

    I enjoyed the food, setting and background jazz. The Spring Rolls appetizer was delicious and the seafood gumbo was nicely spiced and filling. The pound cake for dessert was outstanding and its additional fruit and whipped cream was a special added touch. I will be returning!

    Excellent food in a bit of an odd location - the clubhouse of a Mercer County golf course. Some of the tables are in a lobby-type area as soon as you walk in the door, though, unbeknownst to my wife and I until we sat, there are also high-top tables for two in the bar area at the back of the building, which had a bit better ambiance. Servers we friendly and eager to please and the food was very good at reasonable prices, which is hard to find these days. We split spring rolls, which were excellent, a caesar salad, which was large and also excellent, albeit overdressed. My wife had the salmon over a risotto croquette, accompanied by perfectly cooked and season asparagus. Her dish was outstanding. I tried the braised oxtails with over rice and red peas with sauteed cabbage and plantains, also excellent. We each brought home about 40% of our entree. We each had two drinks, generously poured, and the total bill was under $110, a bargain! Excellent experience and we will go back. I encourage everyone to go, as it was empty except for us for the majority of our dinner. Let's keep Jagrah's in business, as it's a great find!

    After reading an article about Jagrah's Restaurant, we decided to have lunch there. From the moment we arrived we had a great dining experience. We were warmly greeted by Chef Graham and provided water and menus immediately. I started with a steak caesar salad which was not only delicious, but was enough for two. I had tasty leftovers from this salad. For my main course, I had the pastrami reuben. This delicious sandwich was very generous and accompanied by some of the best steak fries I have ever had. Seasoned and cooked to perfection! I look forward to returning and trying the oxtails. Well done Chef Graham and staff!

    Folks, hands down, the food was amazing. The Chef is truly awesome. The location was easy to get to and away from noisy route 1 highway. Setting was good, you can dress casual. Had the braised oxtail my guests had cast iron rib eye and another the blackened catfish. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service is decent and the staff are kind and accommodating. Will definitely return for dinner to try the wings. This place can also have events. Highly recommend for corporate or personal events (showers, receptions or birthday celebrations).

    We've been here twice and greatly enjoyed it both times. Caesar Salad, Ground Brisket & Short Rib Burger, Steak Fries, Fire Roasted Chicken Quesadilla, and French Toast with Brie, are all excellent. Loaded Avocado Toast was pretty ordinary, lots of better things to try. Very attentive and helpful servers. Definitely recommend, and we can't wait to go back!

    First time visit for my daughter’s birthday and Jagrahs did not disappoint. The appetizers and dinner were absolutely delicious and with huge portions. We ordered the spicy wings and Mac and cheese balls for appetizers and fought over the last wing. The oxtails were generous, well seasoned and tender - my daughter raved so I had to taste and she was not lying. The blackened catfish was tender and moist and the shrimp scampi generous and well seasoned. They surprised us with crème brûlée for her birthday and we cleaned that up even though we also ordered the vanilla salted caramel cake, pound cake and bread pudding. I found our new local go to spot! Chef came out and introduced himself and took us on a tour. If you are undecided where to go for a great meal try Jagrahs - it doesn’t disappoint!

    Went here Sunday for brunch. What a phenomenal experience! The restaurant is set inside of the Princeton Country Club. The decor is very appealing. The brunch is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., but we also had access to the lunch and dinner menus. The food was amazing!! We had shrimp and grits, oxtails and the house salad with salmon. Presentation was fabulous!! The portions were very generous for the price and we all had to get takeout containers! Chef James came out and greeted us and asked us how we were enjoying our meal. His wife was also on hand to table touch and make sure that we had everything we needed. We felt like family! We were told that happy hour will be starting in June! Can't wait to see what that will be like! We will definitely return!

    Wow! We just had a fantastic dinner! I had the best pork chop I have ever had. I was at the Knife&Fork two weeks ago…hands down, tonight was better. We also ordered the Salmon over lobster risotto cake. Wonderful review on that as well. We had a lovely attentive server. There isn’t a lot of ambiance but once you sit, you feel welcome and the food is spectacular.

    The Bishop was so warm and welcoming to our group. He made us feel at home. The food was original and delicious with so many great options to choose from so we did family sharing. They surprised us with 3 different slices of cakes to celebrate the 3 birthdays we were celebrating. The value for all the food we got was excellent.
