Just happened to find this place. We thought it was a pub, offering the typical bar food. We even laughed at the sign outside, Claiming fine food and drink. Both my wife and I had a great meal.

Everyone at jg's is amazing! The food is good and they have a juke box. Drinks are always on point. We always stop by when we are having a big event and the staff loves us.

From Cheese Steak, to Crabcakes to Chilli Dogs (Giant) food is excellent. You won't leave hungry!!! Drink prices are lower than nearby restaurants at Deep Creek.

I moved to the area recently and decided to stop at JG's one night for dinner on my own and have been back once since with my boyfriend. My favorite thing there is the hushpuppies, which you don't find everywhere! It's a great little bar...More

Seems like a nice place to kick back to relax and have a few drinks. Not a great selection for dinner if you're a vegetarian. Pretty much a few salads or pub sides and snacks. I had a small pizza which i am sure was...More
