This is a great place for happy hour and appetizers. There are lots of TVs to follow sports, and the atmosphere is lively. Our service was great too.

I really enjoy J Carters for the atmosphere, the food, the HAPPY HOUR and the service. Oh I forgot to mention the hot rolls that are always warm and buttery. One of my favorite things to order is the chili. It really takes me back to my Ohio roots. Not Cincinnati style chili, but it tastes a lot like the kind my family makes. The bartenders make really good martinis and their wine pours are generous. On some nights, they offer entertainment and bring in quite a middle-aged crowd.

Our food was very good... we go there often.... however, sometimes the service can be a little slow, especially when busy and on the weekends, but the food makes up for that.

Read some good reviews on tripadvisor and decided to try J Carter's for a new change of venue while visiting in-laws. What a delicious surprise! Service was awesome, warm rolls with honey butter so yummy, excellent pizza and a perfect burger. The atmosphere was very comfortable with several TVs for sports. Broad variety of choices for both food and beverages. Highly recommend. We'll be back often!

Hidden in the back of the parking lot, with no visible sign (they say it SHOULD be lit, but it has not been for three months!) is an absolutely spot-on local neighborhood bar and grille: J. Carter's. It is a bit dark -- all the better to view the TVs for all the best sports (and they will change the channel for you!). Best appetizers - their ceviche rivals Mexican restaurants. I've had several different entrees ranging from salads, steaks, and pasta - all excellent. This past visit (10/16) I asked for the shrimp pasta without the cheese sauce, and they whipped up an AWESOME lactose free sauce that was INCREDIBLE! Generous drinks, and the bartenders and waitpersons are friendly and attentive. What is not to like? Fully deserving of 5 stars.
