Another delish meal!
Lovely covered patio seating. Attentive service.
Great venue with nice view of the property. Food was average for the price.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at JOI! Food was incredible, service was great. It was a calm evening with a great ambiance that helps you forget what’s happening in the world. We will be back!
Always a winner on my list . 20 plus years and never disappointed
Another exceptional meal in a beautiful garden setting. Everything was delicious. Great service. One of my favorite restaurants in Montgomery County.
We dined outside. It was a beautiful day. Service and food were excellent!
We had an outstanding dining experience. Tina was out wait person and she was great - personable, professional and "fun". We don't come often, but, every August 5th we make sure to return to celebrate my husband's passing - this was his favorite restaurant - ambiance, excellent service, amazing food. We should visit more often.
We absolutely love the outside seating at the JOA. As a matter of fact, we pretty much love everything about the place. Four or five girlfriends have been meeting there for lunch every two weeks during the pandemic. It's such a glorious setting on a summer day. The food has always been delicious. Because we go so often, we do wish they would change up their menu a bit (hint-hint).
A three star was given to service for THIS last visit only. Our server was unattentive several times in bringing requested items. Normally the service is 5 star.
We love this place. Great outdoor seating on a covered patio, even in the rain. Food is always good.
Great place to go in this pandemic as we sat outside under cover and tables spaced appropriately. Beautiful setting! Food fabulous and staff wears face coverings.
Plan on going again
Beautiful setting, great food and martinis! Enjoyed it! The waitress was kinda of blah. But eating outside was wonderful during COVID.
Need to occasionally change up the menu or offer weekly specials. We frequent there often and love the open space/outdoor dining areas. Drinks, food and service always great, just need some variety to the menu so we can come more often.
Amazing facility. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
Our favorite outdoor dining place!! Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu! A must go to place!!
Overall excellent food
We dined here several times and have never been disappointed with the food or service
Outdoor patio is beautiful. Tables well spaced. Food was excellent. The fixed price menu is exceptional.
The food was very good and the outdoor seating area was beautiful. My waitress was very busy but extremely friendly. The only disappointment was the beet salad. There were only 4 slices of beets and for $12.00, that is not nearly enough. The fried avocado was perfectly crispy with Panko bread crumbs. Will definitely return!
Anniversary dinner with my wife here (where we were married); outdoor dining was great and the kitchen has not missed a beat. Get the Chilean Sea Bass - you won’t regret it
Food and beverages were excellent
Service was top notch
We will be back!
We went last Sunday for lunch. The outside patio is quiet and beautiful. Social distancing and masks were strictly observed. It was a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience. Food and service are excellent.
We ate outside and the patio area is lovely. Tables were well spaced and there was plenty of service staff. Food was not as good as we remembered. The taste of the filet was fine, but it was tough. The Caesar salad was bland and missing the white anchovies mentioned in the menu. The scallops and risotto were a good choice. Cocktails were so-so; one was weak and the Bloody Mary had no spice and little seasoning.
It was ok. During covid things are not the same. Food was ok but not inspired.
Was a nice break to go out with all that is going on. It was so pleasant out on the patio and everything was done safely. Wait staff had masks, tables nicely spaced. Never felt uneasy. Food was excellent!
Very pleasant outdoor dining experience. Delicious scallops and Chilean Sea Bass. We will definitely return!
My guests and I had a wonderful dinner outside. The yellow fin salad was a 10. I opted for fish and chips and it was spot on.
Another yum we’re the little neck claims. With a perfect martini? Boing!!
We will definitely return since their service was truly outstanding and diverse menu.
We had a delightful lunch. We ordered from the fixed price menu. The shrimp cocktail and lobster roll were excellent. I ended with the most delicious chocolate cake.
My husband had the New England Clam Chowder with the Crab Cake. He finished with the Key Lime Cheesecake. Our meals were perfect. We'll definitely will be going back.
The outdoor patio was the perfect place to relax and enjoy our meal.
Server was delightful and the setting was safe and beautiful!
This was my first meal with someone outside my family and I was very comfortable with the spacing on the outside patio for lunch. I tried the chicken that had goat cheese and it was very good. My dining companion very much enjoyed the crab-cake lunch. I liked that they were able to serve on regular plates and use wine glasses unlike the take out vibe I hear about. Only two different people came to the table, they wore masks and kept an appropriate distance when setting things down. It was great.
Great dinner, atmosphere and staff! Everyone is always so pleasant! Thank you!
Beautiful absolutely gorgeous setting.
Accommodating staff and the Short Rib Tots should be featured on food network
Just a lovely place with superb food and friendly people.
This place has a great outdoor space for dining. We had a wonderful evening with my family. Plenty of distance from others. Service was great. Cocktails not bad either!
Wonderful indoor room for my daughters graduation lunch. Food was excellent! Service was excellent! My parents who are seasoned diners asked if we could come back to celebrate their Birthdays in September😊
Never disappointed here. Always great dinner food and atmosphere
This is one of my favorite restaurants. So much so that I chose it as the place to propose to my (now) fiance. The staff (especially Colleen) did an amazing job helping me to make an incredible evening for my lady. The food was terrific (as it always is at JAI), the ambiance perfect, and the service wonderful. Looking forward to many happy returns!
Immediate seating and very appropriate for social distancing, service was prompt but not rushed, martinis were excellent and wine were good pours! My dinner fish and chips best in area!
We always enjoy JAI as the food is great and the atmosphere outstanding. The prices are very reasonable as well.
Outdoor patio tables were safely spaced apart and servers were excellent.
Beautiful outdoor seating area. Brie Appetizer and handheld lobster roll was excellent. Good distance between tables. Lovely evening.
