I ate lunch here last week with my sisters and was quite impressed with the service and the best piece of salmon! I had the small side salad with salmon on it . The chef cooked it to perfection and i am picky about how mine is cooked. Highly recommend.

We have eaten at Jonahs 3 or 4 times now. It is convenient to our home. Dont know where to begin. This place is excellent. The food is wonderful. Its actually one of the only places where the food is seasoned so precisely that it needs nothing. Everything on the plate has its distinct taste. Whoever the chef is, is... More

Wow!! What great seafood, prepared unique, fresh and delicious! Service was also excellent, attentive and prompt. They used runners to make sure your order was delivered immediately. A sign of good quality and well run restaurant. Every item was excellent. TIP!! This place fills up quickly and can be hard to get a table. Go for lunch, same menu, less... More

Went to lunch for our anniversary. Food and service were great. Their specialty is shrimp and grits, but don't forget the fried green tomatoes.

Very pleasant atmosphere, minimal wait of 15 minutes. I had the crab stuffed salmon which was done nicely, the fish was not overcooked. The hushpuppies are some of the best I have tasted, light and fluffy. My wife had the fried shrimp which was good. My daughter ordered the blackened mahi with the Jonah's sauce which was excellent. The greek... More

I don’t get it, we heard about this place for a week, even in Florida people spoke highly of Jonah's thus perhaps our expectations were too high. We found it however rather ordinary and at every opportunity they disappointed! I had called a couple days in advance to check their timing and was told to arrive early as it would... More

Shrimp and grits with something a tad you don't expect. Jonah's always has superb cuisine that has a one of a kind flavor whether you choose chicken, pork, seafood . Sides are always served Southern style that accent those hot hush puppies. Arrive early to beat the rush -

The weather was beautiful, the back roads were empty so we decided to ride to Thomasville and have a dinner at a different location. I saw this place on trip advisor and read the reviews and decided to try it. We had the rib eye, cooked to perfection. Medium rare was medium rare! We has the grouper chowder and it... More

We had a lunch here with pan-sauteed redfish (they did not have grouper but substituted this instead - with our permission) on a greek salad. Wonderful meal - you might want dressing on the side as one of us had too much dressing served on our salad. We also got the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer - very well-done;... More
