JCT Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
We were at the area and still haven't been here before. A friend recommended their fried chicken, after a discussion on where to get the best one in Atlanta so we gave it a go. It happened to be a Sunday and we chanced upon their Sunday Supper that comes with the ff:
1. Biscuits -one of the best ones I've ever had and the only one I've really enjoyed eating without meat in it! The combination of flaky exterior and moist interior was just perfect!
2. Deviled Eggs - really tasty! wish they had more pieces to serve. My husband and I just had a half each. The yolk mixture topped with micro scallions left me wanting more!
3. Salad - not a big salad eater but I did enjoy this one. Not sure what it's called exactly but it had lettuce, beans, grated cheese, brussel sprouts and the one ingredient I really loved, beets!
4. Your choice of Meat.
* Fried Chicken - what we came here for. It was definitely one of the good ones we've had in Atlanta but it came with just two small pieces. Wish they had larger portions! We got one wing and one thigh, wing was OK, thigh was really good!
*Oxtail - served with cheese grits. Oxtail, perfect cook! Tender, melt-in-your mouth and seasoning was great! It was served on top of warm and comforting cheese grits which I usually don't touch, but this one I really liked!
5. Your choice of three sides to share:
*Mac & Cheese - best side of the night no doubt! It had thick cut bacon in it which just brought out the flavor of the cheese even more!
*Potato Salad - cook on the potatoes were spot on, not mushy at all! Downside, a little too strong on the mustard.
*Butter Beans - bland! I ordered it because it's supposed to have ham hock in it or at least flavored with, but it was not there.
6. Pecan Pie - I was afraid it would be too sweet but it was just right! The crust was so good too. Perfect was to cap the night.
Everything was for $26 per person without drinks. Will definitely come here when craving for elevated Southern Cooking.
We had a most enjoyable Sunday supper at JCT. Kitchens. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. After we were seated, the server brought us the best biscuits I think I have ever eaten, served with strawberry jam. Next, deviled eggs and a wonderful salad were brought to the table. My daughter and I enjoyed the fried chicken for the main course, which was served with drizzled honey and was crispy and delicious. My husband ordered the oxtails over grits. The oxtails were well seasoned and the grits were very creamy. For our sides, we chose the collard greens, macaroni and cheese, and sweet potatoes. All three were hit! Dessert topped off the mean, and was an exquisite pecan pie tartlet. Be sure you go hungry so you can enjoy all that is offered.
It was my sister's birthday and I needed to find a different place to take her and my other 4 sister's to have a good time and enjoy great food. JCT Kitchen was definitely the place. We had an amazing time. The food, drinks, service and atmosphere was perfect. We all where impress and satisfied with the entire experience. Perfect for a first date, date night, engagement, birthday, etc. Thanks for an amazing experience! We all had an amazing time. SJC
Went to JCT Kitchen with 3 colleagues. The service was very good. I ordered the spring pea pasta. It was ok - not quite as good as I expected but ok. Everyone else got the striped bass that was the fish that night and loved it. I would go back an try other items.
My husband and I watch the travel and food channel a lot and seen this restaurant, they were talking about how great the truffle fries are, we been looking for truffle fries since we left Hawaii , finally found them at JCT and they were GREAT!!!! This really is a 5 star restaurant , we will be back. Oh we drove 2.5 hrs just to dine at JCT.
All six of us had a fabulous meal! Our waiter, Angel was one of the best waiters we've ever had! Even more impressive was how they handled the problem when 2 plates of food did not come to the table hot. They made our special occasion "Special" by bringing the table some of their excellent deserts.
It was my birthday and I thought we were getting a free birthday dessert like several restaurants do, but we got charged and I didn't like that because I asked if they had birthday desserts and thought it was free, otherwise wouldn't have gotten it. Suggest you give free desserts for birthday.
Food was amazing and we have enjoyed the restaurant many times. This visit we found the ladies restroom to be gross. One stall was out of order. The other 2 were well used and looked unclean. I found the odor was horrific when I took my daughter to wash her hands before we sat down. Our reservation was at 4:45 so I find it hard to believe the restroom was cleaned from the day prior. Had the food not been so good I would question going back again.
Just not acceptable for a place of that caliber.
We were seated quickly and the service was very attentive from start to end. All the entrées were excellent. Our table had slight issue but management handled it quickly and professionally. I would definitely recommend JCT and will return for future business and social occasions.
Restaurant is located in a very cool area of Atlanta. Food was fantastic! Our server was nice but not very attentive.....waited for a long time for water refills & didn't converse with us a lot. The young lady who brought us our appetizer was very nice & engaging!
The restaurant is very dimly lit making it difficult to read the menu easily. Decor is very unique & overall a great ambiance. Overall will recommend & return!
A member of our group enjoyed the hanger steak, another the fried chicken and mac and cheese, and another the hamburger. All three of those dishes were great. The last person had the special of a rib eye steak with lobster. The steak was somewhat tough, but the lobster was good. The kale that was served with it, was not eatable.
