Arrived just before 5pm on a Saturday and the place was packed, and I mean packed. They do not take reservations. Our party had a total of 6 beers and all of them were warm. The dirt wings were good, but not out of this world. The prime rib was excellent, but the brussel sprouts were undercooked. Service was good... More

Atmosphere is wonderful....food is mediocre at best. Shepards pie was all mashed potatoes with a small amount of meat and corn on the bottom the baked scrod was tasteless, the calamari was tough and very little for the price paid. will never return, service was good.

I had lunch at Timothy's with family and friends. The food is great. I consider these the best wings! They are just amazing! I also had the baby ribs... another great dish!!! To close I had a Bread Pudding that was also quite good. I really recommend this restaurant... if you are around!!

Heard about this restaurant so my boyfriend and I decided to give it a try. Someone told us the wings were to die for and it didn't disappoint! The wings were delicious and fell right off the bone. The only down side is that there are only four flavors. Only another note we tried lemon gross chicken dumplings as an... More

My adult son and I stopped here for dinner after a movie. It was late, around 9:00 PM. We opted to sit in the pub as the dining room was pretty empty. We were seated at a nice booth but the waitress spoke very fast and with the noise I had a hard time hearing her. The local Ct beers... More

I'm NEVER disappointed when I visit J. Timothy's Taverne. Last night, I arrived ahead of my family, put in a table request and decompressed in the Tavern. Their beer list is very notable and changes frequently with some of the most sought after micro-brews. Perfect any time, but especially appreciated on a FRYday. My table was offered 15 minutes into... More

Got here around 4:15 on a Sat and my wife and I were immediately ushered to a very small intimate room not much bigger than a closet with a table for 2 and a window to a garden. It was lour own private space... More

Rated as a top wing place in Connecticut, we went to check it out. The parking lot was completely packed at 2pm, and we weren't sure if the 6 of us could be seated any time soon. We got seated immediately, as the place is much bigger than it looks. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Their 'dirty'... More
