Went there after they changed owners, the nachos definitely weren't as good, but the other food was as good as previous, and a good value.

Inside décor is a strange mix of diner and 80s lounge. Liquor license is not in yet so we took our own wine. $5 per bottle corking fee. Not cool for a place waiting to get license. Menu is average diner food and no way did a professional chef put together our meals. blah

Had the Pesto Pizza and it was the best! Pleasant service......the food is homemade and very tasty. Dessert was pumpkin cheesecake which also was very good.

My husband and I dined at Jess's on a Monday evening, when the restaurant had fewer than ten tables seated. I ordered a glass of wine and a glass of water. I got the wine, then asked again for the water. Several minutes (and several trips past our table by the server) later, my husband asked for my water for... More

We had eaten here before when it was Jess's and were satisfied with the meal and were anxious to try the newly christened Jess's Junction. We went on Sunday, April 19. The waitress was outstanding, very personable and knowlegeable. I ordered the round steak and my wife ordered chicken. The steak was very tasty and just as I ordered, medium... More

During the first part of April 2015, I had the pleasure of dining at Jess’s Junction. Having been there before, under the previous name, I decided to see what had changed. There is something quite comforting in that which is a constant. Given the pleasure of dining with my Precious Mama, I found the “experience” to be what the two... More

we bought our very good friends a gift certificate for this restaurant for a gift. Unfortunately because of family problems they weren't able to use it right away. After the re-model at Jess's they wouldn't honor the certificate when it was presented to pay the dinner bill.My friends were not only embarrassed, they were very disappointed . Unfortunately none of... More

Started the evening with waitress giving me a taste of the stout I ordered - and I decided on another brew. MUCH appreciated! The (replacement) double bock was excellent, the steak perfectly done and superbly flavored, the sweet potato exquisite. Well worth the trip!

I have been going to this establishment for over 10 years and have always had great service and wonderful meals. It is not fancy inside, but it is cozy and warm, unlike today's chain restaurants with their loud music etc. It sounds like the person who made the comment on Sept 29 had a real chip on her shoulder and...
