I walked by this place early in the day and perused the menu (pretty standard bar/American fare) and saw the Poorman's Steak which sounded pretty great for a chilly, cloudy day. I wandered around Jefferson and looked at a few different options for lunch but ended up back here for the Poorman's Steak. This is basically hamburger stuffed with jalapenos... More

We had a late night supper here on a Friday night. It was okay, but nothing outstanding. A lot of smokers and hard to enjoy your food, because of it.

Always eat here at least one time when we visit Jefferson. The catfish basket is always great. Draft beer is always cold.

This restaurant is charming and fun. It's not fancy so people come in dressed casually. The food is good. There is a good variety on the menu. If you are in the mood for a salad, burger, or a steak, it's on the menu. They have a large wooden bar and there are always characters sitting on the bar stools.

We came by at night to see a band. They do allow smoking in here, fyi, but it's big enough that it didn't bother any in our group and a couple of us are - as former smokers - really sensitive and annoyingly militant about the "ew, smokey in here." lol Service was really good, drinks were really good and...

A group of friends were in Jefferson recently for an annual motorcycle ride. Everyone was looking forward to dinner and karaoke here. Great time had by all. The DJ/KJ is fantastic and has a wonderful voice. A couple of guys appear to be regulars and also sing really well. Great time and highly recommend.

The wait staff was extrememely helpful for us: we are sometimes like a deer in the headlights. I didn't care for the "Julienne potatoes" - they were what I used to call "shoestring potatoes". The Chicken was delicious - They accommodated my GF husband. Price was right.

Came in for lunch (12 pm) and already there was 2 drunk middle aged women at the bar making a sloppy scene. We sat just far enough back so we could watch them make a fool of themselves. We ordered the fried pickles for our appetizer ( highly recommend) and chicken fried steak, green beans, mashed potato, roll. It was... More

I got the Grilled chicken dinner, mashed potatoes, green beans for $9. It tasted like institutional/cafeteria style canned food you can get at any high school! Bleh! This restaurant has such a good history. Get a new cook, revamp the menu and hire more weekend waitresses! I was so disappointed. This was our first time to Jefferson and it's the... More

This is a great restaurant/bar in a wonderful historic building. The food is really good. I loved the catfish, some of the best I've had. The pimento burger was tasty too. They have a good beer selection and the servers were a lot of fun. Auntie Skinner's allows smoking, though, and it gets smoky in there, so keep that in... More
