I visited J. Timothy's on a Tuesday night and it was packed. The bartenders were friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. Numerous local beers on tap and many other selections. I will definitely go back when I'm in the area.

One of my favorite restaurants and the best wings I have ever had. My fiancé and I just went here yesterday and I got the Louisiana fried chicken sandwich. It was absolutely delicious. And the staff is very friendly!!
