Had a party of 10 after a ballgame...EVERYONE loved their food & our waitress was outstanding. We each had ordered something different & we were all pleased w/our choices (even shared w/others just so we could try everything). Will def stop there again when traveling through.

Food and service was good. House salad very good and I had the 11oz Sirloin Medium Rare and loaded Mashed Potatoes. Cooked perfect and flavor was great. Friend of mine had the Ribs... He said they were good also. Generous portion of Ribs.

On a recent trip stopped by J Peters for lunch and it was just as good as I remembered when I lived on the lake. Was there at lunch so I got their soup and salad combo which was delicious. The salads are large and it's a full bowl of soup or bisque. I always get the She Crab bisque... More

We were looking for a quick bite to eat and found this place on TripAdvisor. A very nice find for sure. They have a wonderful menu with lots of good offerings. We were not into a big meal and settled for a sandwich and a nice big Chef's salad. Wow, the portions are really large. We needed a go box... More

We had a burger, tuna sandwich, and fish sandwich for dinner. We choose this place because it was walking distance from the hotel. The food was actually okay and moderately priced for sandwiches. The dinners seemed a bit spendy. No real decor, but large mirrors on the wall. Staff was not overly attentive but did fine as well.

My husband and I have eaten here 3 times and every time the food is excellent. We have had their Blackened Chicken Alfredo, Prime Rib Sandwich, Burger, Fries, Salad and honey croissant roll. They also have good southern sweet tea! We come here now every weekend when we visit our lake house. Best restaurant we've found!

Stopped in for dinner tonight with the wife and friends for dinner. We had a section of the chicken dinners. I had fish and shrimp. House salad was good, great house dressing made with bacon. Be sure and order a plate of the dinner croissants with honey butter, excellent. Our waitress was Tara and she is a local girl who... More

Hubs and I had tried to go here before, but it was WAY too crowded, and we didn't have time to wait. This time, it was full, but no wait. We both decided on soup and salad, and we shared an appetizer. The app was Hot Lava Shrimp--excellent starter. Naturally, we assumed the She-Crab Soup would be a cup size.... More
