We ended up at J.Pepper's Southern Grille by accident. We were supposed to meet down the road at a place with a similar name. It was pouring rain and I pulled into the crowded parking lot of J.Peppers on Old Winston Road, not realizing I was at the wrong place. (After a few confused texts, we realized that I mistook...

The service is great and so is the food. Fried green tomatoes are awesome! I can't wait to go back again.

JP's is our favorite local restaurant. The atmosphere is low-key and the food is spot on. I always come back for my favorite fried green tomato BLT, or shrimp and grits and my husband goes for the bone in pork chop-always good. One of the few restaurants in K'ville with good ambience and great food. I also like the local... More

My wife and I met friends her tonight and had a great meal together on their outdoor patio. I had the wahoo special with a wedge side salad and it was delicious. My wife had the mahi tacos and said they were very tasty. Our friends had a southern fried chicken salad and the mahi tacos and were very satisfied.... More

Several visits to JP's lately has changed our opinion of this restaurant. Food has been good to excellent and service very good. Vast improvement over the last 2 years.

The menu is fairly upscale but the prices are pretty reasonable. Brunch is good. Burger good. Be sure to try the grits sometime. The outdoor area is very good with brick walls for privacy and shelter from the parking lot and roadway. There are heaters and a nice fireplace to warm things up on cooler evenings. We like it.

Have never had better! Also the staff could not have been more accommodating. Southern fried chicken was also very tasty. Highly recommend you stop by.

On a recent vacation to North Carolina we spent a lovely Friday evening at J. Pepper's. The food and service were excellent. I've been on a bit of a mission to try shrimp and grits at as many restaurants that I find it on the menu. J.Pepper's is near the top. The highlight of the evening was Johnny K. the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a night out at this restaurant. We were seated quickly and our waitress was very helpful with wine selection. We enjoyed a lovely lettuce wedge and Cesar salad. For our meal, we chose a peppercorn sirloin on a potato party. It was cooked to perfection and the potato enhanced the meat. We'll definitely go again!

We had dinner here on a Wednesday night. The place was pretty full. The Wednesday drink special was half price wine along with pasta specials. We had the Salmon cake w/ bow tie pasta special and the Sweet tea with lemon baked chicken. Both were great. The portions were perfect. Service was fast and our waitress was very attentive.
