Teetotaler loves this place

I never go to taverns, but the food options looked interesting, and they were - quite nice! The staff is very kind: instead of insisting on customers-only, I saw them let a poor exhausted tourist use the restroom. That's class.

J'ville Tavern located in Jacksonville Oregon is a great place to duck in and have a cold beer when visiting historic Jacksonville. This is not a fancy expensive bar. Very blue collar. Also considered to be a lucky place to buy a lottery ticket.

This is a great bar. I understand that it used to be on the corner but has moved 2 doors down. It is a great bar in a historic neighborhood. Friendly staff and good selection of beer.

It's a little touristy, but fun to see. Have a drink and go elsewhere for the food like the Jacksonville Inn or the Mustard Seed for breakfast and lunch.

I was driving home on a road trip and someone said I should go a little off the beaten path through Jacksonville. I wasn't sure if I was going to stay there or in Ashland that night, but after I stopped in Jacksonville I walked around the town and stopped into the J'Ville to ask, and have a bloody mary... More

So many times you go into a local bar and have to choose between okay beer choices. But J'Ville tavern has it all...domestics and micro brews. Gotta love it:)

Stopped here for a beer while touring the city of Jacksonville, Oregon on Saturday February 9, 2013. The bar is located on the main street of Jacksonville in the heart of it all. The bar itself is very old and turn of the century along with all the other buildings downtown. Therefore, you get this neat old vibe just walking... More

This is the real deal. The j'ville tavern used to be on the corner but has moved two doors down. Cold Beers on tap, martinis, you can get it here. If you like to shoot pool or throw darts, you can do that too. Stick a dollar in the ceiling, ask the barkeep how. Oh and did I mention there... More

This Tavern is a really neat place to explore... old games that I had never before seen, still being played... A beautiful long Bar and old flooring make this place lovely... it's more than Just a Tavern, lots of History come along with a visit here... Jacksonville is simply the best!

Wanted an Ice Cold beer and found it here. Bartender recommended a local beer and we downed it before our feeding frenzy. Nice place to just stop in and suck down some suds
