A converted bank the interior of this entry is beautiful. The fare it serves is less so. The prices were high for what you receive and the enters were so-so. The young wait staff could also use some additional polish. This place has a lot of potential, so I hope management addresses some of these issues to moves the restaurant out of the mediocre and into the memorable.

The waiter was lovely and the food was terrific! The calamari and mac & cheese were our two favs! I ordered a special which was steak that was cooked to perfection.

My first visit to J. Christians was terrific, there really is no other word. I walked in and was taking in by the atmosphere, not formal, fantastic attention to the building's history, and excellent use of an upstairs eating area. The food is incredible with perfect portions, pairing well with either special cocktails or wine. Not being a creature of habit I don't visit often, however it is always a treat when I return. Reasonable prices, great atmosphere, and excellent food and drink... What you expect from any restaurant, however J. Christian's delivers!

Visiting area for college graduation. Pretty setting downtown with easy parking even on a weekend evening. Hostess greeted us and brought us to a table where we could converse. Liquor selections were limited but fairly priced. Our dinners items were tasty with generous portions. My wife enjoyed the short ribs and I the shrimp and grits.Less cheesy than in the Carolinas and spicier which was fine with me. Our waitress was helpful and friendly and we had an enjoyable and relaxing dinner.

We went here for an anniversary dinner and it was worth the trip and every single penny.
The cheese plate was put together excellently and was delicious.
I ordered the venison filets and they were the most flavorful and tasty cuts of venison I've ever had in my life.
My wife had the strip steak and she was very happy with it. The mashed potatoes were excellent.
The service was very pleasant and friendly.
The chocolate chip bread pudding was something you could only read about. It was fantastic. Just amazing. And the beignets were also very very good.
Everyone should make it a point to get here for a great dinner. I'd give them ten stars if I could!
