Being from Towson MD, I love The Raven on tap. I was pleasantly surprised to see it here. Good sandwiches with large portions and great service. I had the shrimp salad and my hubby had the reuben.

The crab cake, crab soup, salmon sandwiches, chicken and dumplings are all amazing. Great service, wonderful atmosphere. I eat here every time I'm in town and take all of my visitors and guests here because they demand the soup.

We actually went to lemon leaf first, they told us to sit at JR's pub. Turns out it's the same menu. The food was good. My son got a salad and it was very good. It was all fresh and crispy. My daughter got the pulled pork, and I tasted it, and it was great. The staff was very attentive... More

I am biased, of course. In full disclosure, I am related to a person on staff. With that said, it offers a truly fun experience. The staff is excellent. The food offerings are exceptionally good, given that they are not a fine dining location. You will not be disappointed.

I loved the atmosphere and the bartenders. We ate at the bar and it was fun and the food was really good . The prime rib was so good I wanted to marry it.

Had a great meal here when they had no room at the Lemon Tree next door (same owner). Great staff, nice wine selection, good food. Super atmosphere.

Apparently JR's shares a menu with the Lemon Tree, which I didn't realize before we went and was a little confused having walked into JR's door and then had the waitress try to find us seating in the Lemon Tree. In any regard, we ended up with a table in JR's. We went for Sunday lunch with a party of... More

Great place to go alone or with a companion. Jeff will make you feel like an old friend even if you've never met before. The bar serves solid American food: hamburgers, salads, coconut shrimp, anything you'd want with your beer or prosecco or cocktail. They aim to please.
