great place to be with your friends on friday nights and weekends after soaking in the office dealing with numbers and difficult people. its a bit noisy and quite dark inside. sometimes you have to wait in line to get a seat. no lounge sofa and setting arrangement on stools by the bar only. great beer. great burger. reasonable price....

I have been to this place many times and have always had good food and very good service. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beers that they have. As far as the burgers you can't go wrong with the Humpty Dumpty. I'll be back.

I've been here several times for lunch and a few beers; it's always a treat. Tasty pub fare with some flair - the Humpty Dumpty is my go-to, as a delicious breakfast burger. Great service in my experience, with friendly and helpful staff who know more about beer than most pubs. The atmosphere works well to for what it is.... More

Great little burger place with one page of food and ten pages of beer! Staff is wonderful, well trained and knowledgeable. Burgers were great and fries were cooked perfectly. The beer menu has anything you could ever want and more, changes seasonally. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent staff willing to help you choose/sample from one of the best cold beer selections in Forks. I prefer the fresh cut chips over the fries however both are excellent. The Humpty Dumpty has been my favorite burger thus far. Food comes piping hot in a matter of minutes. Do to a limited menu & wine selection I have not... More

JL Beers is rather small so Friday and Saturday can get busy but they have great burgers and home made fries and chips. The craft beer selection is really good with rotating taps and occasional tap takeovers by breweries.

Stopped in for a beer before a wedding we tried the fries they were pretty good. It was nice to have a beer and try different types of beers. The food is dirt cheap and the fries were fresh cut. Cannot wait to go again.

My husband and I enjoy stopping at JL Beers for the variety of beer on tap and the great burgers! The burgers and fries are served hot and the beer icy cold! Friendly and helpful staff! This is a small place and you may have to wait for a table but it's worth it.

I have been going to this place since it opened, and have always found the food (burgers) to be top notch, and the beer cold.. The service is always friendly, and helpful. Great place for lunch, with consistantly good food. When ever I am in Grand Forks, this is one of the first p[laces that comes to mind for lunch!... More
