Tony and his entire staff made my dad's birthday dinner a hit! The service was great and they were very attentive to our table, and Tony himself is a riot! Love the trivia questions. We'll be back!

Food is just ok today but the service went down the drain. It used to be my fav place. What happened here? First of all, after 10-15 mins after I ordered a tea, the waiter told me they didn’t have it. Had to wait another 10mins later to get a different one. The food was over cooked, couldn’t even cut the bacon! After the lunch, I signaled 3 different people to get the check. I asked my untouched salad to be wrapped for take home. It never came back! It just became an overpriced place with mediocre food and TERRIBLE service. Tony won’t be able to know this!

We went there for breakfast and post New Year (guess most folks were still recovering?) the dining room was almost empty.
Our waiter Chris was great and we enjoyed the food and his friendly and attentive service.
We had been here several other times for lunch and dinner always a good experience whether the place is full (usually) or quiet like this morning.

New Years Eve at The J House was fabulous! The Prix Fix dinner was a great value. However, was happy that we could also order sushi. Generous portions on the seafood cocktail, veal chop parm & ny strip. Cheese was super creamy! Can't wait until next year!

I visited the JHouse with 2 friends for Happy Hour last week and this past Thursday with colleagues for lunch. The food is outstanding; whether you want Steak or Italian pasta the choice is yours. Their oysters and sea food apps are fresh and delicious. Tony is always walking around to ensure the experience is positive for the patrons. All the waiters, bartenders and servers display exemplary customer service. For those worried about covid, we chose Tony’s specifically. We went for lunch and happy hour and it was quiet and there was significant social distancing both time. The price is not cheap but you have to expect that for this level of quality. Tony’s is one of my favorite places. I even did takeout once for my wedding anniversary as my wife’s favorite dish is the gnocchi with pesto and all the food was still hot when I got home.


The Jhouse Happy Hour menu is one of the best in town.

You could just for Tony’s visits to your table for spirited conversation and movie quizzes, but the decor, ambience, drinks and food are also 5-star worthy.

All-around Tony's was a great dining experience and the Christmas Day menu choices offered something for everyone. Service was very professional and pleasant at the same time.

We were surprised that the afternoon hours were very quiet and would have expected more diners. (Perhaps, the virus resulted in cancellations?)

I’ve been wanting to go to Tony’s for a long time. I love Valbella’s for the ambiance and food and assumed Tony’s would be at the same level, but I was wrong. The atmosphere and service cannot compare. The food was just ok but the prices reflected a restaurant of a different caliber. Baked clams were burnt. Crab cocktail was miniscule. Filet mignon was cooked properly and delicious. Veal chop parmigiana was swimming is sauce that needed a few more hours of cooking time.

I will not go out of my way to return to Tony’s.

We had a 645p reservation. We were running late and we called and gave them a heads up. When we got there at 6:50p the hostesses couldn’t have been more rude. We simply requested a table outside - they said it would be another 35 min. Fine. We had two rounds of drinks at the bar for over 45 mins. At no point did anyone come over and update us, or say anything. My wife went up to the hostess stand asked for an update and the blonde hostess (again) said it would be another 35-45 mins. So an additional almost 90 mins from our original reservation. The entire time - we were looking at at least 5 empty four tops that could have accommodated us. Really unfortunate experience because we have been regulars all through out the pandemic, and brought friends from out of town and it left an awful taste in our mouth. This hostess visibly rolled her eyes and couldn’t have been more rude if she tried.
