About Us

The story of J.Baldwin's...

In 2004, after spending more than 20 years at fine establishments such as the Van Dyke Place Restaurant, the Whitney Restaurant, and Mac & Ray's, Chef Jeff Baldwin opened up his own restaurant and catering company, J.Baldwin's, featuring his award winning stone fired pizza.

His goal was to be able to recreate a gourmet dining experience that fits with today's busy lifestyles. The way we see it, you should be able to enjoy the taste of gourmet - at your convenience, not just on special occasions when time permits. J.Baldwin's Restaurant is the result of that dream.

13 years later, that dream continues. The restaurant is busier than ever, and the catering division has grown by leaps and bounds! We are able to cater any event...from small intimate dinner parties, to weddings of 200 people or more. See our Catering Website for more information on how we can help make your next special event a very memorable one.

And in 2016, the Baldwin Restaurant Group was formed, announcing the expansion with a new restaurant, Testa Barra , featuring modern Italian fare. Testa Barra opened its doors in June, 2017 to great review!

Just a sampling of the wonderful comments we've received from our customers...
Went here for our anniversary. The renovation is top notch. Started with a drink at the bar. Great happy hour drinks and apps. Sat us in a secluded booth. We felt like we were all by ourselves. Very romantic! Our Dinners were excellent! Heather our waitress was wonderful. Jeff the owner/ cook was friendly and professional. This is a Gold Mine…close to home. We will definitely eat there again.
Last night was our first time at J.Baldwin;s and we loved everything about it. The atmosphere was nice, our server was great, and the owner Rosemarie even came to our table and chatted with us for a few minutes. Our entire meal was delicious! We were very impressed and look forward to returning. Thank you J.Baldwin’s for a great evening!
We’ve been going to J. Baldwins since we started dating. It’s our favorite spot for random date nights and special occasions. It’s been a tradition to go there every Valentine’s Day and we’ve done so every year we’ve been together. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t ever gone! Food is amazing, staff is so welcoming and friendly, and the restaurant is so comfy and inviting.
