I don't give anything 5 stars but I will here because its well deserved. Excellent and fast service, good prices and fabulous dishes. Before going to some franchise chain I would check out this mom and pop.

Happy hour at the bar, attentive staff, early bird specials, good sea food. Reasonably prices! We visit at least 2-3 times a month.

The positive: The building and decor is nice. Dining room was nice. Upon entering, we were greeted with smiles and were sat immediately. The server, Troy, was exceptional with a great personality and sense of humor. The margarita was good. The rolls were served very warm and the butter melted quickly and they were good. Things went downhill fast when... More

I have taken advantage of their early bird menu and have been happily surprised by the quality of the meal. Great portions and quality food at reasonable prices. One complaint and it's not a biggie-change your veggie of the day once in awhile. Tired of zucchini!! :-) They also have appetizer specials which are very, very reasonable. The atmosphere is...

My cousin and I were dying for some delicious prime rib. Jim Barbaries has been the 'go to' place for prime rib for me for the last 15 years. Big delicious cuts at the right price. The 4 of us went tonight - we started with appetizers and salads. They had the whole restaurant reserved for a private party so... More

We wanted to eat locally so we chose JB's. The food was good and our server was very nice. We ordered steak and salads and both were very good as were our drinks. I would definitely go back there for a good meal.

No dislikes. Chef Ernie will fix a dish the way you like it. Great specials: Mon and Tue, half price appetizers. Wed: half off a bottle of wine. I always have some leftover to take home.

you are really paying for the atmosphere; there was hostess or whomever she was just stared us down as she was talking to another customer as if she was a little irritated to see African Americans in the restaurant; the server was friendly however. The steaks we ordered medium, but were still dry, and the stuff shrimp was merely cornbread... More
