This was a favorite place for many years for my wife before she passed away. Went there alone just to remember the good times. The service was not that good and the food was slopped together in an unprofessional way. The previous owner, Jamal, would not have allowed such things. Sorry, I can't see myself going back.

We actually stayed in a B&B across town, but this restaurant was well worth the drive. Great atmosphere. Every bite I took was better than the one before.

The food was incredible! The manager was so accommodating, and had tons of wait staff checking on us in addition to our waitress. Had a huge volleyball group (28) here for dinner. Everyone made it a point of thanking me for bringing them to this restaurant. This is a real hidden gem- will DEFIANTLY be back!

Delicious food and great service! I had a seafood pasta dish that was just to die for, the sauce was creamy and the seafood was perfectly cooked.

We stopped at J & S because we were in the mood for Italian. Olive garden was swamped, people waiting out side. So we decide to give J & S a visit. The food is prepared in house. Stuffed mushrooms were wonderful and the Spinach Ravioli was as well. We accidently dropped a credit card on the floor, and the... More

Above average Italian food. Comprehensive menu and good wine choices. Service was excellent. Seemed odd to find a good restaurant in a location like that

Would have rated them better if they had brought what I ordered instead of something I did not order. A tad on the high side price wise. Good wine list.
