Table of 9 with mixed reviews, I don’t think they are quite ready to handle a large table. Service was slow at best, 8 meals came out last one took and additional 10 minutes.
Asked to speak to the manager and kudos on that because not only did the manager come over and talk to us but also Chef Jonathan came over and apologized and explained the transformation that the rest is going through. So while service and food were slow
The quality and taste of the food was excellent. When they get it together I think they will be definitely worth another visit. I’d give them a couple month before we visit again.

It is really nice inside! The bar is so warm and welcoming. They REALLY need to do some sprucing up on the outside. It looks like a vacant building when you walk to the entrance. Needs some planters, plants, awning, anything! The signage above the door is way too small and just totally bland. Once inside, it’s totally different!

Glad we have it another try! Service was much better and food came out timely and not all at once

Very loud interior even though not very crowded. Food was very greasy and flat bread was more like a pizza

Pizza came out 20 minutes before a salad and fires. Salmon salad was just iceberg lettuce!

Very surprised! Had no idea what to expect as this place is New. We will definitely be back! It was great. Huge portions. Food was delicious! Live music was awesome! When you sit in the dining room and have a conversation the other people talk. The drink menu looks amazing but I will try it next time.

There were five of us in our group. We sat at an oblong table which made it very easy for us to visit. The background music was at a level that did not interfere with our conversation; it was perfect. The food was very good, and the price was very reasonable for the amount of food. Our waitress was great. Just attentive enough, without being overly so. We would recommend Jimmy O’s.

The food was good. But the service was slow. They made the wrong pizza, but made it right in the end. The food was not good enough to make up for the slow service.

The soup and salad that was supposed to come out before the main course came out after instead. So the meal was out of order, and the soup was cold. When we mentioned it nobody made any attempt at service recovery despite easy and obvious opportunities to do so. Won't be going back.

My father ordered a medium rare prime rib and received a cold, tough well-done ribeye steak. Also, it took 50 minutes for our food to arrive.

Ordered a cosmo and lemon drop martini. Very weak and the cosmo seemed to be missing triple sec. it just tasted like cranberry juice with a touch of vodka.
The onion rings were delicious but everything else we ordered was meh. Definitely do not order the bone less wings! The hamburgers were just okay.
I won’t even get started on the ambiance/decor.
They did have a Band that was pretty entertaining...probably the best part of the restaurant.

The meal was okay. My husbands entire order was messed up. The server corrected everything and provided good service. My meal was good but average. There were several very loud groups at the bar that made talking at our table difficult. Everything was just average.

The waiter was NOT wearing a mask. Service was slow when there were only 2 other tables in the place. That should have been a clue on a Friday night that there was no one in the entire place. They were out of salmon, tilapia, and something else that someone ordered. I would not go back. Very disappointing. When we asked about a list of beers the waiter said- you can just go to the bar and check it out. Really?

We had our family gathering here - they didn’t know about the reservation but they made everything super special for us and allowed us to gather without a mask mandate which was perfect for us!

Friendly place with entertainment and decent pizza. Lively crowd with a relaxed atmosphere. Service a bit slow so if you are in a hurry don't go. Would go back!!!

Our first time here, will NOT be the last! Crab cake appetizer was awesome! Portions are HUGE, and so delicious! The shrimp are gigantic with a great beer batter, and garlic parm fries were perfection with yummy mixed vegetables. The loaded baked potato was great, the service was friendly, helpful, and present without being hovering. Can't wait to try other items!

We had a reservation for 5:00 on Saturday night for a party of 4. We were seated promptly upon arriving. Our server was attentive and made excellent recommendations. Even though they were busy, we did not feel rushed through our meal. The drinks were a little weak on alcohol, but still tasted good. The mini filet sliders were very, very good as were the crab cakes and potato skins. Entrees include chicken, fish and a burger and everyone enjoyed their meals and had leftovers as the portions were generous. It was our first time there and all agreed that we would be back.

Very good spot to grab a casual dinner. They haven't been open long and I think they will get better over time. The serving sizes were ample and the pricing reasonable. Loved the service, but we'll give them a little more time to work out the kinks and then go back.

Had a few basic questions about recommendations and servers didn’t know how to answer and had to reach out to manager about what type of pasta noodles they had. Crab Cakes and French onion soup were great. Chicken carbonara was super dry and tough and felt like it was left under heat lamp after cooking for too long. Prime rib was good not great and pretty fatty and for $30 wasn’t worth the value.

Restaurant has potential, but between service being just OK and food being below expectations not sure if we will go back or not. Our server did take off $17 for the Chicken Carbonara that we didn’t eat due to quality.

This was our first time here. The place is large, we sat in the bar area where there was live music. For an appetizer we shared the sampler with wings, mushrooms and jalapeño poppers, all very good. I ordered the filet medallion sliders, they were melt in your mouth yummy. My husband had the Parmesan chicken sandwich, it was big, he had to take half home. Prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly. Will definitely go back again.

It was a Friday night and the place was pretty busy! Our server was very attentive and helpful. Lots of choices on the menu and the pizzas and burgers we ordered were good. Place had a nice vibe to it...not too loud but plenty going on!
