We enjoy this restaurant often. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, classy. You feel special just being there. So it is a good place for couples or special occasions. The service is always exceptionally good. The Danish BBQ ribs fall off the bone and have a savory sauce, the prime rib is always perfect, the rattlesnake pasta(really chicken) is spicy, so... More

The Deviled Eggs with Sugar-Cured Bacon appetizer is wonderful. For entrees, I especially like the Prime Rib Sandwich, the BBQ Danish Baby Back Ribs, and the Grilled Pork Tenderloin. The Key Lime Pie is excellent (the whipped cream on top is wonderful) as is the Carrot Cake. Reasonably-priced for the quality.

I read the phrase bullet proof in regards to a meal and I thought it described J's perfectly. Everything dish is perfect every time; I have literally had every item. Consistent service- the staff has tried everything and knows every ingredient which helps with allergies and such. Hard wood grill makes the grilled items taste better than imagined. Don't even...

Great Food and service just like the Huston's of old. Some of the items on the menu look like the come from the Huston's play book...as does the look and feel of the place. Give it a try
