Been coming here for years and always have a great time! They have a great happy hour with great drinks, service and great food. They have good live bands on the weekend as well.

We've tried the cheeseburgers, shrimp appetizers and the calamari. The only item that wasn't very good was the fish and chips. Too much batter and not enough fish. Drinks are nice and strong, good beer selections too!

Always a great ambiance. Great friendly service and good snacks. Usually crowded so reserve if you have a group.

This is a great place for happy hour and appetizers. There are lots of TVs to follow sports, and the atmosphere is lively. Our service was great too.

I really enjoy J Carters for the atmosphere, the food, the HAPPY HOUR and the service. Oh I forgot to mention the hot rolls that are always warm and buttery. One of my favorite things to order is the chili. It really takes me back to my Ohio roots. Not Cincinnati style chili, but it tastes a lot like the... More

Our food was very good... we go there often.... however, sometimes the service can be a little slow, especially when busy and on the weekends, but the food makes up for that.
