Fresh very tasty food, everything is outstanding! Get the mixed plate so you can try everything. Dessert is a must, take some home for later. Very pleasant staff, always trying to make everything great for you.

Don't come here if you expect any kind of decent service. Total joke. Rude. Incompetent. Deathly slow.

Since 1978, Jerusalem Restaurant has created an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Indulge in sensational desserts prepared by our kitchen. Or enjoy mouth watering Lamb Shanks that literally falls off the bone. At Jerusalem Restaurant we pride ourselves on offering our guests genuine hospitality with a casual environment that's perfect for any occasion. It's a "home away from home" for those that are familiar with Falafel and Gyros. We look forward to serving you again and again and we thank our "regulars" from the bottom of our hearts! Without you all, we would be nothing.
