Fab food!

I came here with friends during a group trip to Brighton. The staff were friendly and seemed to genuinely care about what they were doing - so much so that when my friend asked which veggie burger our waitress would recommend she found her colleague who is a vegan as she would know best (and she... read more

The food at JB's American Diner was excellent and we throughly enjoy the food we picked. I had a Falafel burger which for a vegeterian option was very tasty and my partner had the honolulu beef burger which he said was nice! Atomosphere was great and very up beat which you would expect from an american diner style restaurant.

Me and a few friends came here and we all enjoyed it! the food was nice, big portions like you'd expect from an american place but well made and served quickly. Milk shakes were good. Service was good as well we got all we ordered in a good amount of time and the bill splitting was easy.

We really didn't expect to be served such huge portions (I'm not complaining, in fact I was really pleased). We had burgers with chips and salad, onion rings and milkshakes. Holy hell, I managed to eat it all. I honestly thought I was going to kill myself with food. It took 4 hours before I stopped feeling like my belly... More

I called up to order some take out one weekend for my daughters birthday as she wanted authentic American diner burger, fries and shake for her evening meal. They hung up on me. The second time I called back they through me to voicemail. After I left a message and waiting one hour I decided to forget the call ahead... More

Good quality food big portions, a great atmosphere the only downside was the half hour wait and the order of food but the food and drinks we're tasty and enjoyable for three adults was just over £40 a bargain

I am lover of american food and was so excited to eat here. The fact you sold mountain dew got me really excited. But then it all went downhill from there. We ordered our drinks and food after having to get a waitresses attention then we had to wait about 30 mins for our food AND drinks to arrive. I... More

Great venue, prompt service. The menu offered all you would expect in an American themed restaurant, and the food was good quality, hot and fresh. Best to expect large portions though!

Visited yesterday for lunch. Yummy mozzarella dips to start, I had a burger and my other half had a hot dog, both very nice and massive portions. Then had shakes for dessert ... They are to die for! Had an oreo one and a snickers one ... Both so yummy! Couldn't finish them so the waitress asked if we would... More
