We enjoyed our experience at Jenkins...Cute decor all over the walls and a train for the kids to watch.. Our food was fine and the service was on point. Easy to get to as it is on the main highway and has plenty of parking. Good for small or large crowds.

We were having a graduation party here but we received the gifts of attentive service, polite interactions with staff and delicious food. Please put this in your list of places for dining in Cleveland.

This place is unique in decor, and interesting. But Dinner is what we came for. Service was slow, food was average or better. Not a 4 or 5 star restaurant. It's loud, and it's more like a bar scene than a restaurant that you can dine in.

Nice people, good food and a good list of foods to select from. A great fish sandwich, Reuben, hamburger and known for their chicken salad either as a sandwich or on a salad. Deserts are home made and exceptional.

We have been to Jenkins Deli several times in the past and it was always fine. Tonight, not so much. I decided to try the kobe beef burger. It was very overcooked and dry. I asked for a replacement and the waitress was very kind, apologized and asked for a re-fire. A few minutes later, a manager brought me another... More

The atmosphere is relaxed and fun! There are numerous choices, and everything I have ever tried is delicious. Sandwiches are over-priced.

Picked up our daughter at Lee University and it was a quick jump over to Jenkins for dinner. It was our first time to eat there. We had the appetizer combo, fried pickles, cheese sticks and fiery cheese bites. Pickles were great, next time I might just get those. I had the 1/2 chicken salad sandwich for supper. It was...

Jenkins Restaurant and Deli has been family owned and operated since March 15, 1976, serving many generations over the past 39 years. Recognized in National Geographic, Southern Living, Guns and Gardens, Tennessee Tourism website, and many local and regional publications. Known for our outstanding cuisine, long standing excellent service, warm hospitality, and community involvement. 

The all-time favorites are still on the menu; Jenkins' famous chicken salad, French dip, buffalo burger, and specialty soups and market items. New to the menu is a much-requested large fresh salad bar that has something for everyone. 

Our new location has a fun family atmosphere featuring a large model 'G' gauge train circling the dinning, a two sided fireplace with covered patio, and tons of local memorabilia tucked into every corner. Ask about our party room that seats up to 40 people, perfect for business or club meetings, wedding or baby showers, birthday parties or a social gathering.
