In its former lives, the space now occupied by J'Ollies Restaurant was a biker bar, a seafood restaurant, and a pub. When J'Ollies moved in, though, that space was transformed into a family-friendly restaurant where diners can feast on pancakes and waffles straight from the griddle, or homemade biscuits bathed in sausage gravy. They can even create their own omelet, filling a hearty three-egg and cheese package with meat and veggies. Later in the day, lunch and dinner options include American classics such as beer-battered cod, meatloaf, and grilled cheese sandwiches.

The talented cooks at Jumpers Grille grace tables with tasty dishes of tender pulled pork and chicken, delicious sides, and dollops of signature barbecue sauce. Each juicy portion of meat arrives on a choice of special roll, white, wheat, rye, or wrap, slathered in mild, hot, or honey sauce, and crowned with a medley of toppings including relish, horseradish, Tiger sauce, and onion. Chilly draughts of cola, freshly brewed iced tea, and birch beer quench mealtime thirsts, and piping hot cups of coffee and hot tea warm gullets or melt blocks of ice with love notes embedded in them. Like a blistering banjo solo, the mouthwatering lineup of sides promise a traditional accompaniment to barbecue feasts, with appetizing eats of french fries, mac 'n' cheese, crisp coleslaw, and hearty potato salad.

In 1983, "Beefalo" Bob DiMartino began a small-scale catering operation built around no-frills, classic recipes of pit-roasted barbecue, growing his business to include a carry-out joint, sports bar, and even an upscale banquet hall. Bob's process is simple: slow cooking beef, ham, turkey, slabs of ribs and morsels of pork and chicken over smoking hickory fires and not cutting corners with gas jets or heat vision. The sports bar garnishes these backyard-style feasts with plates of oysters, lump crab cakes, and strip steak, as well as sports games on 20 big-screen TVs and rivers of cold beer.

True to its roots as a catering outfit, Beefalo Bob's supplies parties of up to 10,000 with bull roasts, crab feasts, and roasted pigs, as well as rentals of tents, tables, and moon bounces. Fancy occasions find a home in the 250-person Reflections Hall, decked out with chandeliers, DJs, a fireplace, hints of sparkly gold, and a wide-open hardwood dance floor.
