Good Local Food

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

Always go here for good steak. Very attentive staff. Rolls are amazing but very hot when they are put out. A true staple of danbury.

We had excellent service and the food was exceptional. We all started with the soup of the day which was a tasty butternut squash and very filling. I've been going to Jim Barbarie's for years and have never been disappointed.

The wait staff left a lot to be desired. We had not been to Jim Barbaries in some time so my husband and I were very excited about going out for a nice dinner. It was such a disappointment we almost left without getting our meal. The wait staff is the first person you interact with and ours was rude.... More

My fiance and I recently went to Jim Barbaries for lunch, and we were hoping to talk to someone about having our rehearsal dinner there as well. We had such a negative experience, we didn't even ask about the rehearsal dinner. Frankly I just wanted to get out and on with my day. A couple immediate off-putting things: We were... More

As always the food at Jim Barbarie's was excellent. Our waiter was named Mark and did an extraordinary job waiting on my family.

Great food. Good servings. Attentive staff. Not really much more you can ask for. I will return. The Salmon special on a Thursday was very tasty!
