    I want to thank you again for our wonderful luncheon.  Everyone loved the food. It was hot and delicious.  They have already let me know they want to do this again next Christmas at Jamesport! Plus, the 2 young women who served were delightful.  They were eager to do whatever we needed.  They were incredible with all the drink orders and special requests we made. What a pleasant ending to a wonderful luncheon. Thank you for making our Christmas luncheon so perfect.

    Please accept a very sincere thank you to you and your entire Jamesport Team for a wonderful lunch yesterday! The feedback has been nothing but positive. Thank you again for your help in making this another successful Holiday luncheon – we couldn’t have done it without you!
