Nice place for a date, but a little overpriced

The shrimp and grits were awesome, and just about the right portion, friends dishes seemed a little small though. Also had the baked brie and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting JBs. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very friendly and provided great service. The wine and... read more

It's been a long time since my wife and I ate at J. Broussards, and I think we liked it a lot better in the past. Tonight, we went with another couple. My wife and I split a catfish dish with mashed potatoes and asparagus, which came with a salad. We also ordered another salad. The bread rolls that were... More

Recently went on Valentine's Day. Had a special four course menu. Each course was superb! I love the chef in this place! She is always trying something new with fresh ingredients from the area. If you're in Columbus, don't miss this place!

I purchased gift certificates and had to use them relatively quick. My girlfriend and I went and walked in as it was a chilly evening. We were greeted and promptly seated by the window in the room on the immediate right. We were given the menus and ordered the escargot as an appetizer and placed our drink orders. When the... More

J Broussards is one of my favorite restaurants--period. Also nice that I live within walking distance. Great place to come for a drink--good selection and well priced. House white is great and only $5 a glass. Food is spot on though some dishes are pricey. My sons love the steaks here as well as the pork chop. I go for... More

J Broussards looks like it would be a very nice restaurant by all appearances. The building is quite old and charming, but oh looks can be deceiving! The owner/manager looked and sounded like she just crawled out of a hole when I walked in. Very bad first impression. Charming? welcoming?...no...friendly?..definitely not. She forgot about our private party booking and yelled... More

Good food but a bit pricey. We don't eat here often. A catfish Grafton dish I had was excellent. Consider it more "fine dining" and not geared to kids/family outing.

Started with the escargot bourguignonne which was terrible over cooked, texture was rubber like and lacked any resemblance of flavor. Brought out a previously frozen and thawed french loaf to accompany but no plates. Asked for plates and received one dirty plate. Moving on to the salad. Ordered house salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing and friend ordered Caesar. Lettuce was... More

Menu looked good on internet, unfortunately it falls short of expectations, steak was ok, pecan fish was flavorless and overcooked, too expensive for the quality of food you get, if in Columbus area try harveys or the grill, much cheaper, much better food.

Had a terrible experience at this restaurant. We had reservations for a private dinner. Rude owner greeted us with disdain upon arrival and it went downhill from there. She was unprepared for our small party and blew a gasket in front of her waitstaff and customers. We left crazy town and had a wonderful dinner at a lovely restaurant (The... More
