I was prepared to not like it, no ambience, but our server Sam E. Was great, prime rib delicious and fast. Try it.

We were not very happy with J Peters the last time we tried it, but decided to give it one more go. We will not go again. I keep restaurant menus or use the internet menus in advance because it takes me forever to decide what to eat and dinner companions tend to get a little frustrated. The entre I... More

Brought my husband here for his birthday and it was our first visit. The staff were very friendly and prompt with service. We chose the jalapeño quest dip for an appetizer, prime rib dinner for myself, and the shrimp and flounder platter for my husband. The food was amazing! There was so much of it, we ended up taking the... More

Well, it was next door to our hotel and the reviews were good so why eat anywhere else? But we got a lot more than we expected. The house salads are enormous with great additional flavors. And a superb croissant to accompany. The steaks were excellent, large and tasty - as good as in a specialist steakhouse. The shrimp were... More

Wife and I went as guests to J Peters. Once again a fine meal. We split the Prime Rib, loaded mashed potatoes and caesar's salad. It was very good, the meat was VERY big, and ample for us both with leftovers. Their chicken garden salad is also huge.

The steak used to be better (Rib eye, not on the menu, but can be ordered), but the salads and burgers are still number one. A house salad is a meal in itself, and a great value. We usually sit in the bar as the main restaurant area is dark, loud, and not ascetically pleasing (in this reviewers opinion). There... More

Very professional, great food, and quick service. It's pretty nice. It's not expensive at all. They came highly recommended from the Hilton across from them.

I ate three meal there because it was next door to the hotel. The food quality was excellent. I did three take out orders from the bar. The people working the bar, were lacking in basic customer service skills, like a smile and thank you to name a couple. I will be back in the area in a few weeks.... More

SERVICE: Justin P was our waiter. Excellent service from him. Very attentive and made the experience more enjoyable. Way to go Justin. FOOD: The food itself was just ehhhh OK. My wife and I both got the flounder platter. Fish was hot but obviously was prefrozen from a box. Seemed salty as well. My wife had the sweet potatoes fries... More
