Great experience every time. This place has the BEST wings ever. Their dirt wings are to die for and it is a MUST stop every time I come home to visit from Florida. The atmosphere is amazing and the service is always top notch, they never skip a beat!!

It's a Very quaint place with excellent food. I've been there many times for different reasons. I love it there. If you're looking for ambiance this is the place for you. The fireplaces are lit and can be a romantic dining place for your special date.

We went there with family! Everything was just amazing! The wings and ribs were out of this world!! The waitstaff were wonderful and a lot of fun! It was crowded but definitely worth the wait! We will surely be going back again!!

I come here atleast once a week. They honestly do have the best dirt wings I have ever had. They always have new beers on tap and a wide selection to choose from. Yes it does get very busy but that is a good thing. Everyone I've brought here loves it. Go. You won't regret it.

The restaurant in as a historic building. The food is out standing with a wide variety of drink specials and beer. They are USA renowned for their award-winning buffalo wings. Must make a stop here if you are in the area.

This was my fifth go at Timothy's. It was the first time I went ahead and endured the ridiculous wait (an hour last night) for a table in the dining room. Twice before I just left and the other two times finagled a seat at the bar. The wings live up to their reputation, my party having split a 20... More

This was the second time I have been to J. Tonight's in the past three months. It's worth multiple visits to try various menu items. I had the short ribs with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. Food came out in a very short time and was perfect. Both servers at the bar were knowledgeable in both the food and wide... More

While visiting from NC on business, J Timothy's was a "must eat" recommendation from a colleague in Bristol. It did not dissapoint. He suggested the teriyaki dirty wings. Hands down the best wings I've ever eaten. Dirty means, "the wings are fried, tossed in sauce, then re-fried". My main entree was the autumn pork chop: infused with apple cider and... More

This place was highly recommended by the locals. The atmosphere is warm and homey, with a touch of a "log cabin" feel to it. Service was outstanding and prompt. But it's all about the wings!! Load up, because they are fantastic. The beer selection was great too. Enjoy and Cheers!

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
