Juniper is Mattie and Celia’s daughter’s name.
What are the birds on the sign about?
Those are Guinea Fowl, or “Guinea Hens” as Sam calls them. Celia grew up in the Knob Creek area and when she was young, there was always a flock of these hens standing in the middle of W. Oakland Avenue as you drove around the curve where Juniper is now located. We would always have to slow down to let them scatter. Sam would then make a joke about Benny Hinn, the Preacher. You can also find “Ginny” the Guinea on our kid’s menu!
Fun fact: a group of guinea fowl is called a confusion
What’s that big old building beside you?
That is The Bashor-Denny Mill that was built sometime before 1832. It is a great piece of the Historic Knob Creek District. If you'd like to find out more, please visit our up-hill neighbors at The Knob Creek Historical Museum.
Do you take reservations?
Yes- we prefer them! Reservations ensure your time slot and that your table will be ready for you upon your arrival. You can download the "Tock" reservation app on your smart phone, follow the link on our website, or give us a call to make your reservation.
How do I make reservations with you?
We use a reservation app called Tock. If you search "Tock" in your phone's App Store, it will come up as 'Tock- Restaurant Reservations' (Blue background with a white broken circle icon)!
You can also follow the "Reservations" button on our website.
Do you accept parties of 8+ people?
For parties of 8 or more, please call for availability.
Are you open for lunch?
We will only be open for dinner for the foreseeable future, but we will open at 4:30 pm, so you can come grab an early supper with us.
What is the best place to stay up-to-date with your daily operations?
We post regularly to our instagram account @juniperjc (see the instagram icon at the bottom left of this page). You can also find updates on this website!
What if your parking lot is full?
We have additional parking available on our side of Denny Mill Road. Denny Mill Road is the next turn off of West Oakland Avenue just past our parking lot. Follow the Off-leash Social dog park signs!
Is Celia selling cakes?
Wow! Thanks for asking! Once we get into the groove, she will be offering custom cakes for in-house and off-site celebrations.
