The service was extremely slow, only one waitress, but the chicken fried steak was the best one I've ever had! I will go back and wait on myself, bus tables or whatever I have to do.More

This place has pretty decent food, but they act like they invented beer. I do not recommend this place if you want more than one beer.

Awesome gluten free food and safe for someone with Celiac Disease. The wait staff and kitchen are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My daughter and I have never gotten sick from eating here. I love this place!

Many students and casual late working folks eat and drink here. The food has always been good. The atmosphere is fun and very pub like. You can find all types of beers there. It's .mainly sandwiches on the menu but always delicious.

I enjoy going to JRB. Usually have drink specials and good variety of food. Odd though that an English pub would use a cheap trash fish, tilapia, in lieu of traditional cod. That should not discourage anyone from going to JRB's - just order something...More

We love this "Pub", great food, drinks and a friendly staff. We usually go for a few cocktails, then take our lunch or dinner home. Always just what we ordered. Try their BBQ sandwich, very good. We recommend this place to all of our friends...More
