We ordered take out and when I went inside, it looked like a bar that has not been updated since the 80's! Maybe that was the ambiance, but it would not be a place I would want to eat in. The food was good, but did not make me want to return.

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 environment, but it's good for the family too as the dining room is pretty spread... 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 a kit pizza. My wife had chicken tenders and said they were very good, all... More

I've always gotten the "meat of the week" and never have been disappointed! 3 times is an impressive record to me, and they cook it as you request. I've tasted the chicken breast and onion rings, very good also! The pizza and wings I see kids with, smell SO good, but I never have tried them yet. I hear the... More

Food is always cooked as you wish. Have been here twice and always ordered the "meat of the week" and it was GREAT both times (prime rib once). Dinner for family, around 5P. Dinner date, with louder music (bar scene), around 7P. Good decent price for what you get. When busy, they may take a few minutes to reach you,... More

Wings are their thing! Crabby Kate's Crab soup is to die for! Did I tell you about the best cheese steak and bacon cheese fries. U gotta try em. Tell them Jim & Doug sent you. Ask for Freddie and try his JUICE! It's down the hatch delicious.

This is a friendly place to grab a bite or a beer. The food is good, but a little high in price. Not bad, but not great. Kate will make you feel welcome and if you feel brave, you might ask for some Freddy Juice. Don't let the outside facade fool you. This is not a dive bar and the... More

Seven us stopped here for dinner. I had the BBQ sandwich and a side salad. The sandwich was ok, a little too much sauce, although the portion was generous. My salad was very good, crisp and fresh. My wife had a cheeseburger that she rated very good, and an order of fries, again a large portion. Service was friendly and... More
