A group of (6)us came here for a late night bite, and even though the kitchen closes at 10. They remained open a little later for us to all nosh on delicious entrees of trout, Southern fried chicken, juicy hamburgers, and porch chop. For appetizers we had deviled eggs, fresh oysters, truffle fries (so addictingly delicious), fried calamari, and freshly made breads with homemade churned butter. I can not wait to go back and try some of their other delicious southern fare modern twist menu items.
JCT is a special restaurant in west midtown. It is a quaint restaurant with a small bar and small patio area. The food is why I keep coming back. I have never been disappointed here. The fried chicken is to die for! They also have excellent salads. The beet and ricotta cheese salad is delicious. I will keep coming back!
JCT is a very chill posh spot for dinner... they have a really cute little patio to eat on that is perfect for outdoor dining! The truffle parmesan fries, JCT salad, and mac & cheese are a must try!
I came to JCT for a summer party, and sat upstairs on the patio. The food was great (summer specials with Georgia peaches) with a good drink menu. The patio had a 60's style band playing which was a lot of fun. The restaurant downstairs is a little more formal, so depending on your preference/dress code, you can pick your poison!
I love JCT Kitchen! I have celebrated countless special occasions here: birthday parties for myself and for my friends, engagement party with my co-workers and treat-yo-self days! The deviled eggs are so good as an app; they are my favorite in the city. And whether you come for lunch or dinner, expect to have some delicious main dishes!
If you are looking for some refined Southern cuisine and a beautiful but casual environment is the check this place out. The food and service has been perfect and consistent since the day they opened and I look forward to
returning to this Ford Fry original!
JCT Kitchen is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some amazing southern food cooked to perfection. While the prices are a little steep, they are definitely doable for a nice night out on the town. I always order the Southern Fried Chicken and it never disappoints. The crust is perfectly crunchy & what doesn't go perfectly with mac 'n cheese. JCT is great for a first date or treating your inlaws. Try it out soon!

FOOD WAS COLD, LACKING FLAVOR AND SIMPLY UNINSPIRING...IF I WORKED IN THIS KITCHEN I WOULD HOPE THEY WOULD FIRE ME IF I PUT OUT FOOD LIKE THIS. OVER PRICED, OVER CROWDED, LOUD, OBNOXIOUS STAFF, SIMPLY CANNOT DESCRIBE WHAT AN AWFUL EXPERIENCE. HAVE GIVEN IT 3 CHANCES AND WILL NEVER EVER GO BACK. SIMPLY HORRIBLE...SHAME ON THE ""ACCLAIMED"" CHEF.
We went on a busy Saturday night so I expected a little lag time in between visits by our waitress. What I didn't expect was to have to go to the bar to order my own drinks and to never and I mean never once be acknowledged by a waiter/waitress. Never once was I offered a menu or even another drink. It was the second time I've visited and this solidified that I will never ever give them my business again...

My wife and I visited JCT kitchen for her birthday and really enjoyed. We had the duck rillette to start, which was fantastic. I had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. It was cooked perfectly and the fennel and apple sauce was great as well. My wife had the pork special with sweet potato fingerlings and brussel sprouts which was very good as well. THe portions were a good size especially for the price. I highly recommend this restaurant!

An old friend and myself went to JCT Kitchen for dinner this past week end. My friend Linda and I hadn't seen each other in quite sometime and were looking forward to having a nice dinner and catching up with what has been going on in our lives. We arrived and it was very busy but we were seated right away. We ordered wine and a specialty cocktail from the fun cocktail list. They were both great. We told the young man that was our server, who by the way looked as if he hadn't shaved his face in several days, that we wanted sometime to visit but he continued to push us to place our order. He seemed to really have a chip on his shoulder and was somewhat short with us.We did eventually order and dinner was fantastic. The crakerjack salad was one of the best salads I have ever had. Where we had felt rushed in the begining, we later felt negletected during dinner when our server negletected to check back with us for sometime. When we had finished he seemed as if he wanted to push us out of there to get his next table. The service needs to be more hospitable but the food was excellent! I will definatlly come back.

Visited JCT today and had an excellent ""Southern"" lunch of warm Pimento Cheese on toast and a creamy tomato soup. Great combo on a rainy, dreary day in the ATL. Service was attentive but subdued and very informed/educated about the menu.
Definitely a great business lunch location -- and parking was very easy.

Hidden in a location that houses two of Atlanta's finest restaurants (Bacchanalia and Quinones), JCT Kitchen adaquately holds its own among the two stalwarts.
The restaurant is a must-go for fans of New South cusine. DO NOT miss the french fries (yes, I said french fries), and also make room for the rum-soaked coconut cake.

I am not very familiar with the southern cuisine but at JCT I had the chance to try some amazing dishes. Besides the fried chicken and shrimp&grits, the short ribs dish was fantastic .Their farm-to-table concept works great: the price is accesible and the quality is high. Little crowded on the weekends but perfect for a night out during the week.
I will definitely go back .
