Decent

It's nice that they offer a senior discount. The food is decent- nothing more. The servers are very courteous. I have no real complaints but there is nothing to stand out at this restaurant. The salad bar is nice and the soup/salad dinner option included several types of soup.

This restaurant I believe was the former Carrow's. It has only been approximately 6-9 months since it changed hands and management. The change at the top didn't really help the folks at the bottom or the customers. We didn't get any good vibes at all from the service staff and the term "friendliness" was non-existent. The food we ordered/selected was... More

My first two trips there have been terrible. The rib eye steak for breakfast was shoe leather, couldn't even cut it with a knife. Oatmeal came so watery didn't know any oatmeal was in the bowl. I am optimistic they will improve over time.

If you are 85+years old you might enjoy this place. Had dinner tonight with my in-laws and was stunned by how bad the food was. My wife and mother -in -law both had salmon that was dried out AND whitish-grey. Sent wife's back and was replaced by a less cooked but still inedible small piece of fish...definitely not salmon on... More

As previous comment or said, this is a new opening after being gone for years. We went for Sunday buffet and we're pleased with the offerings. They were very busy so didn't have a lot of service from our waitress, but since we had the buffet there wasn't much we needed. The buffet is small and in the way of... More

I am a nearby resident who dines locally. JB’s was a longtime popular Sun City restaurant, until this location closed in 2012-2013. Shortly afterwards, a Carrows restaurant opened in that same location. But in April 2015 the Carrows chain was bought out and the Sun City location abruptly shut down. Then, a few weeks ago, JB’s returned. The JB’s reincarnation... More

one time was enough, service was not that great and the food was cold. I would not go back when there are better places that treat you better

Poor food. Lousy staff. The wait staff acts bored with seniors.
