We first experienced JMs on a Saturday road trip. At first I had been reluctant to visit because I thought it was a more atmosphere. But, we went anyways this day. And boy are we glad we did. Since then we try and make it our Friday night weekend kickoff. We vote the top pick for you should be the... More

We live on the river and this one of the few places you can visit by boat in our area! The food is consistently good, especially the steaks, and the atmosphere is very casual!

We had heard Jacob Myers was a good place To eat. It truly is. We had lunch on the porch, on a beautiful autumn day. The food was delicious and very generous servings. The staff were very helpful with selecting our meal and very friendly. If you are near Dayton, give it a try.

This is a nice restaurant in Dayton which several others I know had recommended. The food was served fresh and service was very good. One thing I never before was fried green beans for an appetizer. Definitely different but kind of like most fired vegetables. They also had fried pickles which I was told were really good. I'm not a... More

I met friends for a retirement dinner and was wonderfully pleased with the entire experience. The facility was clean and well kept. The waiter and waitress we had were both friendly and attentive. Now for the best part - other than the company - the food. I had fish and chips which was recommended by a friend. I could not... More

Our first visit found good food, good prices, good service and would be a good view if the river wasn't dried up. It was a beautiful fall day, so we sat out on the porch overlooking the river where, even though it was very low, the water fowl were taking advantage of it. Its just off the main route through...

I was visiting friends in Dayton, Tn. And they took me here. I had the best batter fried shrimp of my life and I live in Florida. They were big, fresh and lots of them. I could not finish mine so as we were sitting out on the deck, some cute little kitty got herself a nice shrimp dinner.

Dayton - the hub of fast food - is quickly becoming known for two really good spots and this is one of them. Jacob Myers originally resided on Market Street in downtown Dayton, enjoyed a lot of foot traffic from the courthouse and surrounding businesses, but was very small. When the establishment moved to its current location, I never thought... More
