Great food

This place is known for ribs, and a lot of my fellow diners enjoyed them thoroughly. I enjoyed the pizza- one of the best I have had in a long time. We had a large group and reserved ahead so it was ok, but the restaurant is a little small overall. Servers didn't come around as often as we... read more

The ribs were good but I've had better. However, when in Cochrane, it's the best in town! We went for lunch en route to Moosonee and it was an easy walk from the Best Western. The saloon decor was cute, added to the experience and made the food taste better! The restaurant was clean and comfortable and mid-sized. The waitresses... More

Went in on the recommendation of the clerk at the hotel. Busy little spot. Had the ribs. Ok, a bit pricy compared to spots in the city. Overall good service, meal was fine.

Had a good dinner here this week while in Cochrane on business. I had the rotisserie chicken and my friend had a pizza. Both were good. Would be nice if the chicken would be served with some type of dipping sauce. Fries were freezer fries but were decent. Skipped the ribs. I know the people in Cochrane love them, but... More

Asked at the local Canadian Tire store where to eat in Cochrane, cashier was not helpful but customer in line said, you can't come to Cochrane and not go to JRs for ribs, especially honey garlic. So my son and I did and reasonable price and very tasty...and I would recommend...not fine dining, but good tasty food.

Although the menu might not reflect a Texan cuisine, I sure felt as though I was in the deep south as I entered J.R.'s Bar & Grill. The restaurant's decor was amazing!!! I loved the wood-burning and Aboriginal artwork on display throughout the restaurant. The service was on-point!!! I LOVED their high-quality fries...the best fries I have had in a... More
