BBQ in Puerto Rico

Nice idea a restaurant on the top floor of the EL SAN JUAN Hotel, however service was underwhelming and waitress just looked tired of dealing with hotel guests, appetizers were taste but the entrees where just good enough nothing special at all

On the rooftop of the El San Juan Hotel you marvel at the views of the hotels many pools, tropical gardens, the beach & the airport. A wedding couple was having their rehearsal party on our visit taking pictures with the stunning views as their background. Daily happy hour with drink & food specials. Very attentive staff. At the entrance... More

Good BBQ with a great view of the city and beach. The food was really really good and we enjoyed the view from the 10th floor.

It was a fun place. The drinks were pricy, but the view at night was awesome! The ocean breezes were coming in wonderfully, and it was refreshing. Food looked great -- we just had drinks, but it was fun! People had their kids in there, so it's apparently kid-friendly.

My boyfriend and I regrettably went here for dinner and had the worst experience ever. I wish I would have wrote down my server's name but I will describe her. She is a young Puerto Rican lady about 5'6, longish dark hair, fairly thin and has little indents near her cheek/chin area (appears to be scaring from acne). Now that... More

The server was absolutely horrible, people had to get up from their table to request their bill. The manager had to carry our food from the hot plate to the server to get to us. I waited for at least 30 minutes looking for our server while she was in the back laughing and talking to co workers. I would... More

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing bad to say about the place. Service was fine. Food was good. Place was similarly furnished as a pizzeria uno or chillis but with barbecue theme. The food was good, meat was tender, flavoring was good. It was all good, but like i said, it was a chain restaurant experience.

We had started a tour from El San Juan Hotel and it ended fairly late so we decided to try Brother Jimmy's. Drinks and bbq were all good, most of us had pulled pork, which was a little on the dry side. Sauces are a good addition, the cole slaw is excellent. Also suggest pitchers of drinks if you are...

The bartenders were not friendly or personable. My party quickly decided to take our chances at a table! Luckily, or server was not as rude as the bartenders and we actually enjoyed our experience with him. The food was not that great, but the do have great happy hour drinks, with rooftop views, for decent prices.
