Slow service, Grouper Bites were way overcooked, Sirloin Tips ordered med rare showed up tough and dry. Weak beer selection. Average overall. Clean restrooms - thank you for that.

I worked close to Rjs for 9 years and ate there probably too often. Solid restaurant built around comfort food. Never had a bad meal here. Possibly an occasional average one. Good food, friendly service. They have a little of everything sure to please anyone in your party. Their Idaho potato dessert is a must have. This day I got... More

Just about the same as many of the other national chain casual restaurants, but this is locally owned. Food was bland and comfort foods. Had the teryaki chicken, salmon and fried shrimp all were good. Spinach Maria was mushy and needed more cheese and a bread crumb topping would have made it better. Outside the bar, I feel it caters... More

I have lived in Maryville most of my life and I have never gone to RJs. So today I thought I would stop by for lunch and I can honestly say I wish I hadn't. The service was okay not spectacular like I would expect but it was the food that did it for me. Upon getting my order for... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch today at this new-to-us restaurant. We received excellent service and food. Hubby had hamburger and fries while I had nachos. We would return there often.

I stopped in for lunch after a flight, the restaurant is right around the corner from the airport. I had a lunch steak and sweet potato. I was amused that the typical side salad or veg was not automatically added. The food good, not great. I'd come back. I guess the main reason is that it is like a chain... More

This was a very good restaurant, very friendly staff, good food, cold beer, very clean. The food was served fresh and hot, our beer was served cold and our bartender was outstanding. A very good place to stop in and have a drink or two.

My husband and I have been trying to like this place for over a year. (We like to support local establishments) The menu is simple- burgers, sandwiches, salads, chicken and pork, steak, and a couple of seafood options. The food is decent (the rolls are fabulous!), but portions are somewhat small. The atmosphere is okay. We usually sit at the... More

For a seemingly (less than) busy Friday night, we were shocked at our experience Being hospitality career professionals we try to be optimistic in noticing slip ups, but this was probably the worst meal/service we've experienced Steaks over cooked The promised rolls were brought after our meal Had to request drink refills & beer rounds We sat close to the...
