Dined here with a friend. My penne pasta with sausage, chicken, sun dried tomatoes and broccoli was delicious. The entree came with a salad of romaine, baby salad greens, red onion, tomatoes, and was very fresh. Tasty croutons too. The menu has enough variety to please and the prices are reasonable. The only complaint for me was the noise level.... More

I've been to J. Roos twice so far and have had great experiences both times. It's such a cozy place, and the wait staff is super friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The first time I went, I had the Hot Antipasto Appetizer as my meal so I could try more than 1 thing. The second time I went, I had Chicken... More

I've been a customer for over a decade. Pizza is always great. The new spot is awesome. Great job. Buffalo mac & cheese is a hit. Food is very consistent so that's a plus. I recommend the potato pizza with bacon and onion or the BBQ chicken. The dinners are excellent as well.

This restaurant is just the best around for families. The owners are always present and they do a great job getting to know their customers and giving back to the community. They have a wide variety of menu choices and a nice bar.

JRoos is newly remodeled and very nice. The waitress was TERRIBLE. Long dark hair with a pony tail. Her attitude was as if she did not want to be at work. Almost done with our food when she came to ask how everything was. My water was empty but she never refilled the glass. There were other waitresses who were... More

wings and most food are still as good as ever but I must say the pizza crust is now thicker than it used to be and not my favorite anymore....

I have yet to sit down at J Roo's for a meal, but the Takeout is very good...and quick. There meatball sub is the best around. The sub costs less than 8 bucks which is not too bad. Will continue to order from there.

Chicken parmesan grinder changed from a hearty piece of chicken to a cutlet with no meat, but other than that I love this place. Wings, salads and drinks are always great. The pizza is always good! The new building is nice with a spacious seating. The bar area is busy, especially during happy hour and trivia night. Great bar staff... More
