To be fair, the food is plentiful and food. Some calabash style available, lots of variety. Actually the scallops were great. My main negative is that the place needs updating and needs to be lighter and seemingly cleaner...a little dingy..with all the places to eat, I would go elsewhere for a better esthetic experience....

We arrived to a packed parking lot but few customers were in the restaurant. The food was more than we expected but it was just average. I was told the restaurant has been open for years so it must be more of a locals place.

My husband and I met two of our favorite friends at Jones the other night due to our knowing that we will always have excellent food, excellent service, and excellent prices! We are always greeted by John the owner who is one of the most personable owners you will ever meet and were glad to find out that we would... More

We wanted a local seafood place. Driving by the day before, we noted that this restaurant was busy, so we decided to give this place a try. Was it the best we have ever had? No, but it was very good. The service was above average. The food was prepared well, and got to us quickly. Prices were reasonable. Will... More

Always good food and plenty of it. This restaurant is nothing fancy, but the service is always friendly and efficient.

Eh.. It wasn't bad. But, it wasn't good. Was not a busy restaurant. Food was greasy. It's a small restaurant. Will not be going back. I don't know what everyone else had, but I ordered crab legs. Very small crabs. Like I said greasy,

If you like Calabash style seafood (lightly breaded and fried) this is a great place. Laid back place for locals. Hushpuppies are great! Love the shrimp.

This is your basic family seafood house. The food is very good, although your sides will not be home made. The grilled shrimp were great, as was the fried shrimp. Prices are very reasonable, and the have a seniors fried plate at a teduced price if you're over 55.

I should have known when the specials of the day were not seafood, that this would probably not be a good place to eat, but the prices were very reasonable. My first reaction was that the restaurant smelled bad; sort of like soured something or other. but, it was already 7:30 and we had not eaten so we pressed on.... More

Family front out of town was here to visit, and was the one place my grandfather wanted to go. I had high hopes as I'm local but have never eaten here, and unfortunately won't be coming back. We had a fairly large party, and only had one waitress, which wasn't so bad until it came to bring out the food.... More
