Lunch stop with the guys on the work crew to get in & out quick - but not so much. Middle of the week and ONE (1) waitress was in the restaurant - even as more customers and in she just had to run faster and nobody ever came to the front of house to help (including one guy wandering... More

I've given this restaurant many chances, and they continue to disappoint! Today was the final straw! Orders are often wrong, causing food to be delivered after everyone at the table is already finished. Bugs were all over condiments on table...something I wish I had immediately noticed when we arrived! Also, last time we took our children there for dinner and... More

This little restaurant/bar is so quant. I had oysters and they were freshly shucked. So so good. The waitresses were really sweet and were friendly enough to answer my questions about the town. The place was clean and what I really liked, it wasn't loud. Music was at a nice level. I'll come back.

We went to Jefferson's for oysters and wings. Oysters were expensive, but icy cold and delicious. Great place to eat, drink, and watch football!

Everyone will have a different experience when it comes to restaurants, hotels, etc. but mine was great.. Our waitress was sweet and very friendly, my burger was cooked to perfection and was very delicious and the fried pickles were very good.. I will be stopping by again

It took an hour to get our food. So disappointed. Will not return. Ever. There are other places on the road that are better...just keep walking...

Location is everything for Jeffersons--if it wasn't in the downtown Opelika area I doubt I would go there. But it is, and it's walkable to all the cool little shops, and the food is good but not exciting. Price is decent, they have good outside space and sometimes have live music. Speedier service would be great.

Although it was hectic and busy, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and ambiance of the establishment. Food was seasoned very well and servings were very generous. I'm glad I tried Jefferson's for the very first time. I can't wait to go again. Service was good despite the busy night on a first Friday in downtown Opelika.

Good place to have wings or a burger and a beverage. Always very friendly staff and fun atmosphere. Several TV's to watch the game or a race.
