    We prefer this location to the Memorial location. My Gin &Tonic was somewhat flat, bottles of Fever Tree would be a great addition to the bar. Food was very good as usual and our server was pleasant and efficient.

    The wife had Parmesan Redfish and I had the Snapper Verde. We split a side of the delicious mashed potatoes. Both pieces of fish were quite large, fresh, and tasty. We started with a Campechana appetizer which was a large enough portion for two people and very good. Not an inexpensive place to eat, but a very high quality meal that we both enjoyed. The atmosphere was nice but relaxed and not pretentious. We'll be back!

    When we arrived there was no one sitting at the bar. Most tables were occupied but counter bar is always our preference. I felt sorry for the people eating in the bar “galley”. I’m sure everyone seated could hear each others conversations. We ordered our drinks and my cosmopolitan was delivered appearing bright red and tasted like cough medicine. YUK! My husband’s blue cheese olive in his martini was gross because of the fake processed blue cheese inside. First impression of what the rest of the meal would be like was not impressive. At that point we left and had an absolute fabulous meal with live jazz music and delicious hand crafted cocktails at EddieV’s in City center for about the same price. We will not be going back.

    Jonathan's The Rub at Campbell PlaceResponded on September 11, 2022Hi! My name is Sam Levine I'm the general manager here at Jonathan's the rub. I truly wish yall would have talked to me when a problem occurred with your drinks, I could have definitely rectified the situation. I was walking around all evening and checking on everyone. I'm sincerely sorry this occurred, we take pride in our also hand-crafted drinks like Eddie V's. As a family run restaurant these reviews are passed around the company for learning purposes, please call me at 713-447-3994

    The food was pretty good, love the way the place was set up. Nice but not over the top. Service was not bad but overall for what we spent, not sure if I'd go back. That said, I'm still going to recommend, just buyer beware.

    All four of us got different fish and we all enjoyed our entrees. We tried the spinach and broccoli with blue cheese sauce and all like them both. It is a little noisy but clearly a neighborhood favorite. My husband and I have been to this location twice now and will go back again. We have been to the Memorial Green location many times.

    Clearly “on holiday”… Place was half full yet the food took longer than I’ve ever experienced..? Go here a LOT and like it a LOT, but… staff, kitchen and, well, everything was just way off vs. normal performance and value… Didn’t see the owner/operator (who likely was on a deserved break), so… I’m guessing “while the cat’s away”… Was so mad by the time I left with my family, almost swore off the place… Couldn’t even find the waitress for maybe ten minutes to simply pay and get out… Sad… Had maybe 20 great experiences there up to this, so… I just hope it was the holiday..!

    Jonathan's The Rub at Campbell PlaceResponded on September 5, 2022Hi there, my name is Sam Levine and I'm the owner your referring to and I was there the entire day. I really thought the whole day went very well. I'm terribly sorry you had a bad experience but what's troubling is that you've had 20 great experiences and felt the need to write about one bad one. Its very troubling as we work so so hard to make every single guest have a great time. please feel free to call me anytime at 713-447-3994. Again Im sincerely sorry and hope to see you soon.

    We love Jonathan’s. It’s our go to for special dinners, dates and business lunches. We’ve been going to Jonathan’s since they were at their original location. The food and service has been consistent and outstanding. It’s been fun to watch them grow and provide great food to our community. Their Old Fashioned is great, the steaks, fish and Italian food is always solid and the gumbo is always solid. Thanks to the team for helping us celebrate our daughter’s Confirmation.

    Waited 20 min to be seated, even with reservations. That set the mood for dinner. The service was okay overall. The ambiance was loud, so it was hard to hear the server or talk to the guest. The food was overpriced, and the flavor wasn’t there. Overall it was a fine as a one-time experience, but I won’t be going back.

    I was a kinda skeptical at first however the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The food was very good. The ambiance was a little disappointing. The crowd was very quiet at the time we arrived there on Sunday at 5pm. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Don’t mind going back in the near future.

    Went to celebrate a friends birthday on a Sunday. The food was flavorful and perfect portions. Bruschetta - 5/5: the right bread, tomato, basil, cheese combo and the stand out dish for its clean lunch of flavors Seafood gumbo - 2/5: it’s not gumbo with a thick roux, it’s basically seafood soup with a tomato(y) base. Salty but good, just not what I expected Country chicken - 4/5: perfect batter breast with a bacon gravy. Moist and delicious. Brussels sprouts - 4/5: a little over cooked but I liked this dish as most restaurants overly sauce this veggie. It was simple being grilled with bacon The rest of the table had waffles and steak and eggs off the brunch menu and it looked very fresh and they enjoyed their meals. Would go back for a dinner to taste the other interesting items on the menu!

    Pretty noisy during the lunch rush, so don’t expect an intimate conversation. Otherwise a great experience. Nice wine selection as well as a wide variety of dishes at reasonable prices. I prefer coming later in the afternoon for a glass of wine and some bites when it’s a little less busy.

    We've been fans of Jonathan's for a number of years. The food is always great and the new location on Campbell Place is really nice. It's smaller than the Memorial location and we liked the feel of the room better. Our server, Marissa was lovely and efficient and this location will be our 1st choice "go to".

    Dinner with friends enhanced by delicious food, friendly service and welcoming surroundings. Chicken fried steak and fries, easily shareable or lunch the next day in take home. We did share roasted Brussel sprouts, lightly coated with crumbs and cheese and garlic seasoning. Another shared item, coconut cream pie for dessert. Another great meal.
