We've been eating at JCT since they opened. So much has changed, specifically the food. It used to be outstanding and creative but has turned into just another "southern food" spot.

Like usual, JCT did not disappoint. We came in this time for Sunday Supper and absolutely loved it. My husband said the fried chicken was 2nd only to his grandmothers. We did have an issue with our biscuits being significantly undercooked, but our server took care of it right away and the new biscuits were perfect.

We have been coming to JCT kitchen for years now and clearly something has changed. The menu was not good, strange choices, the only good thing the deviled eggs which were nothing compared to what they used to be. The noise level was horrible and the they started playing very loud music. We won’t be going back.

We went to an early dinner on a Saturday night. My Margarita was great but our starter of crab fingers was disappointing. Very little meat and kind of odd all around:/
Best rolls and honey butter that I’ve ever had. Mussels were great as was the tuna (off menu entree). Smaller portions but very tasty. Outstanding service. Overall great night and wonderful dinner.

JCT is typically a "go to" lunch spot to share with clients and friends. However, this last visit was overall a poor experience. The JCT Fried Chicken salad staple was terrible. The entire salad was comprised of huge stalks of romaine and not the actual lettuce. The chicken was the only edible item on the plate. In addition, our waitress was terrible. She was in such a rush she spilled everyone's water (when she actually made time to refill the glasses), and practically threw the plates in our laps. One of the worst experiences at JCT. Hopefully they were just having a bad day!

Our waitress Winnie gave us amazing service. She explained the menu and ingredients clearly. Each dish she described made us want to order the whole menu. Everything she recommended was excellent and made with integrity. There was so much more we wanted to try so we booked another reservation before leaving.

Sunday Supper is a happy tradition we observe quite often. The food is delicious as well as the handcrafted cocktails. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed. And there is always some comfort food available on the Sunday Supper menu...a great way to wind up the weekend!

Menu has changed and a bit pricey for what you get. The blue crab claw starter is an epic fail. The ny strip is underseasoned but cooked well, one highlight was the pork schnitzel... it was excellent!
