I know your probably thinking evening, happy hour, Friday nights, but drop in for a quick lunch for an upbeat middle of the day experience. Yes, the atmosphere was just what I needed for a quick lunch with a friend, well it could have been quick but we were having too much fun. Food was quick and delicious. Plenty of... More

This is a great place for happy hour and appetizers. There are lots of TVs to follow sports, and the atmosphere is lively. Our service was great too.

I really enjoy J Carters for the atmosphere, the food, the HAPPY HOUR and the service. Oh I forgot to mention the hot rolls that are always warm and buttery. One of my favorite things to order is the chili. It really takes me back to my Ohio roots. Not Cincinnati style chili, but it tastes a lot like the... More

Our food was very good... we go there often.... however, sometimes the service can be a little slow, especially when busy and on the weekends, but the food makes up for that.

Read some good reviews on tripadvisor and decided to try J Carter's for a new change of venue while visiting in-laws. What a delicious surprise! Service was awesome, warm rolls with honey butter so yummy, excellent pizza and a perfect burger. The atmosphere was very comfortable with several TVs for sports. Broad variety of choices for both food and beverages.... More

Hidden in the back of the parking lot, with no visible sign (they say it SHOULD be lit, but it has not been for three months!) is an absolutely spot-on local neighborhood bar and grille: J. Carter's. It is a bit dark -- all the better to view the TVs for all the best sports (and they will change the... More

We have been to this establishment several times. They have prime rib on Wednesday at a really good price, and it is good! They have an appetizer that is so good it makes me want to go there now. It is a cream cheese fried wonton like food. The only bad thing I would say is they have live music,... More
