The hush puppies that came with our selections were also very tasty. The service here is also excellent and the prices for the menu items are very good as... More

Casual dining with delicious fried chicken. Great BBQ, cole slaw and the hush puppies are famous! Jones' is my go to source for parties and catering.

A locals restaurant, I can't say how the barbecue is bu the seafood is nothing special. The servers are nice, the sweet tea is good and so are the hush puppies. No ambiance,no sound.

My family goes here often. The atmosphere is basic, but the food is always delicious and fresh. Highly recommend the scallops and fish. They have delicious country sides and hush puppies, and save room for home made pie. They are a little pricey for the lack of atmosphere. Definitely recommend if you love seafood and pie.

This place is very average and it shows. There's nothing really special about it. It's very quiet, no music, very slow so not a lot of chatter either, the whole place is washed out due to weird lighting and the fact that the staff has to wear all white, and the food is nothing special. Everything is fried or cooked... More

Jones restaurant is Portsmouths best kept secret. It is tucked into a small shopping center and if you did not know where it is you would never see it. This place serves, as close as you yipycan get, home cooked food at reasonable prices. The fried chicken is to die for. The restaurant is neat and clean, the service is... More
