Great atmosphere!

We always visit JB's diner every time that we visit Brighton. The decor is amazing and the service is usually pretty good, the menu is great, I would stay the food quality is slightly less than what you would expect but it is still really nice, always quick to arrive and really hot.

A fun American diner. Food is what you would expect. Burgers and chips etc. Bright and noisy but very interesting decor and pictures. Probably more suited to a young clientele as the music is quite loud.

Love their shakes. There's enough in one serving for two people (American portion sizes) and they make a great dessert.

Went here after reading some reviews with my family and was left a bit disappointed to be honest. I had the king burger which didn't taste that good but the strawberry milkshake was absolutely stunning and loads of it too! My wife had a bagel along with a milkshake and found it to be just alright. The kids were happy... More

I went here recently with. Y dad. He had over the border burger which he loved as it was actually spicy! I had a chicken wrap chicken was dry but it was still good. Also had pancakes which completely finished us off as portions are big. It has a great atmosphere and everyone seemed friendly. Milkshakes look incredible but we... More

I've been here twice now and it would have got 5 stars if not for the huffiness of the waitress-clone (there were three who looked near identical) being huffy about me wanting a booth to myself rather than sit at a table in the middle. On both occasions the burgers were great - served in a red basket which people... More

I came here with my friends for lunch. It was absolutely amazing. The staff were very friendly, the decor is fantastic, it's like literally stepping into America. The food is good not too pricey. But the milkshakes are the best very worth your money.

We've been to JB's on a few occasions and are never disappointed. It can get quite busy on sunny day's as people visiting Brighton head in for one of their amazing milkshakes. There is a huge range of food on offer and be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, you'll leave knowing that you've had a huge meal, while also not... More

On the outside it doesn't look like much. Step in, and the theme becomes very obvious. Love the american diner look, it doesn't look fake either, like some designer got paid a lot to put it all together. We went for breakfast, didn't book table, but it wasn't a problem and we got seated straight away. Our waitress was lovely,... More

We were greeted straight away and taken to a table which we didn't need to book. The menu is huge so plenty of choice, and although I didn't have one, the milkshakes looked pretty good. Good portion sizes, friendly staff with quick service, and tasty food. Enjoyed the music and the decoration too. Would return for another steak, although the... More
