Good happy hour

Bring OFF! The food is similar to the NYC locations but the menu did not agree with the room service and wall posted menu. No rib tips!

This must be one of San Juan's best kept secrets. We went here twice and they were not very busy. This is on the 10th floor and has wonderful panoramic views of the beach and ocean. The BBQ selections are great.

This is a place that I frequent when I am in town. I have enjoyed this location for group outings, to watch play off games, boxing matches or just dinner with the kids.

If you're at the El San Juan and just want something casual and easy then its a good choice. its what you'd expect from brother jimmys - decent food. i guess you have to take into account the location and resort prices. it does have an great view from the rooftop, and service was fine.

The view is great - casual sports bar - riding bull for entertainment - good food - good drinks. What more could you ask for?

like other Brother Jimmy's this is excellent bar-b-q. The extras include true PR cuisine (and the best tostones). I recommend sharing a Swamp Water with your friends (or maybe two!)
