Don't waster your time or money. Service wasn't great, food was HORRIBLE and the prices were overboard.

We stopped in here desperate for something to eat on Friday night without wanting to wait 45 min. I was a little skeptical when we entered but it turned out to be fine. The Pina Colada was excellent! I had London Broil and it was very good. Not a huge portion but enough. My son had the burger with pullled... More

My family of four went . We asked what drinks they had and were told "fountain sodas". The waitress never asked how I wanted my steak. M y medium rare steak was practically burnt. Theh even messed up the second one. I had to rub it with salt and pepper to make it edible. 75+ dollars for a meal better... More

Staff went out of their way to accomodate a cranky party of 3 including an 18 month old. The food was great, drinks were perfect and dessert was good. Our waitress was fantastic! She anticipated everything provided for the baby and couldn't have been nicer.

Ended up here after not wanting to wait in line for an all-you-can-eat place. Should've waited! JR's food is not good! Had the brisket, which came out swimming in a watery sauce. Had no flavor at all! My wife had the filet mignon. Again, no seasoning at all. The french fries tasted like tater tots. Service was bad, with a... More

My family of 5 went there for dinner and were extremely surprised at the amount of time we were there. 40 minutes total or less. We did the cream of crab soup and we all ate big meals. Crab cake platter and ribs for the kids. The food was hot and very good. Highly recommend this location.

The ribs here are super tasty. The menu is a little limited but you should only be ordering ribs at this place. The sides were great. We had baked beans and yams with cinnamon and brown sugar. Drinks were good as well.

Went to JRs when we were kids, and I remember long wait times and the onion loaf. The onion loaf is still there, and still awesome, but there's no wait time. With two crabby kids, that is not a bad thing! Even better when the food is good and the service excellent. The decor is dated, but it was clean... More

My boyfriend and I have went here in 2013 and 2012 for the prime rib and it was great. We went this year and it as processed and tasted like nursing home food. We spent $75+ on processed food. If I wanted fake processed food I can go to the McDonald's dollar menu. Stay away from this place.
