What People are Saying

“We are big fans.”

Thank God for The Jet, where it’s a little like Cheers on Fish Fry Friday or Taco Tuesday. The Jet is homey and has all your comfort food favorites. The patio is always perfect in the summer and they light up Main St all winter. We are big fans.”

Rebecca P.

“Literally our favorite restaurant.”

So appreciate the cheerful service and delicious food served here. It’s literally our favorite restaurant.


“Wonderful experience, great food!”

Same restaurant, different location — just as I remembered from 30 years ago… we were in town for reunion weekend a few weeks ago… Reminds me of home cooking and being treated like a human being, not just another check. Wonderful experience, great food!


“Like Family”

The food is awesome. I am a self-taught chef, and the kitchen staff are PROS at their craft, consistent and FAST. Front of the house service is phenomenal. The wait staff has become like family. Fish Fry Friday is fresh and HUGE. Get a Stearns Chicken Salad and thank me later.
