Not really a "restaurant" in the sense that you could expect. Really little menu, some pizzas, burguers, starters and thats all. Some more 3 pastas and 3 desserts. An AWESOME beautiful place, Super Kindly waitresses, nice for a late snack, fast well done food, happy...More

Nice looking place but the nachos are dry and with way too little salsa (also, why a chip which doesn’t fit into the salsa bowl?). The waitress did not have a good day. Kinda weird having electric candles. The snickers hot chocolate looked decadent but...More

Cool place with musical instruments on the walls and ceiling. Nice interior and good food. Service was friendly. I had the Pizza Salsiccia and my date had the bruschetta. Both were delicious.

Rather modern and film noir like in style. Quick and friendly service. I ate the lasagna, but for me it was rather boring in taste. The meat and pasta was meshed together like porridge and I missed more spicy taste. The cheese on top was...More

Thank you for taking your valuable time to write a review of our restaurant. I am sorry to hear that the Lasagna did not quite fit your taste. Our lasagna is made at our kitchen from scratch, and we make the lasagna child friendly and...More

The restaurant is nicely located by the river, one can either sit inside our outside. The staff is friendly and quick. The menu consists of standard dishes, something for everyone (also gluten-free pizza), but nothing exclusive. Overall a nice experience at agreeable cost.

We are proud of our outdoor area next to the river! Our menu consists of many traditional dishes as burgers, pasta, club and pizza. However our intention is to make it personal with homemade mayonnaise, dressing, sauces and first class ingredients such as plum tomatoes...More

The first impression was nice. You had the feeling that you were back in the 50'ies in some American restaurant where jazz musicians were entertaining. The food was also American inspired, but I am sorry to say, Americans do it better.

Beer was totally flat, food was totally average and pricey. Nice interior and good service. Not quite bad enough to make you complain which is an almost perfect business plan.

Actually this place is a ok place, little bit over priced, but clean, friendly service and food is alright. To me JBG is made to feel like something special but it comes across as another fancy franchise, with not alot of character.
