I like Brother Jimmy's cause you can have fun, have a great meal and drinks. The ribs are to die for. It is a good place to come with friends or family. The have an electric bull, that is always fun. lol The restaurant is at Hotel San Juan's rooftop so the view is really nice. Casual and friendly. Definitely... More

Love this place...was my first time and was great....awesome ambience...beautiful ocean view and the food was delicious and huge portions for a family of four. Great experience and worth what we paid for. Service was average could be better ...the man was kind of grumpy. But I will come back again.

Great atmosphere but that doesn't make the food taste good. I had a late dinner so it was dark out and I couldn't enjoy the scenery but I bet it's an awesome view during the day. I wouldn't eat here again but maybe stop bye for an afternoon drink.

I read that this place was terrible, but we didn't want to spend much on our last night, so we got takeout. It tasted OK, I guess, but we both felt sick after. Great views from the top floor, horrible food.

Excellent views and great food. It is so nice to feel the breeze of the ocean and enjoy good southern food. Lots of space for everyone - from families with young kids to bachelor's parties. Its getting pretty wild at night.

We passed this placed nightly and decided to check it out. It sits on the 10th floor of the El San Juan Hilton Hotel and Casino Resort. It's lit up at night and looks like it would be a lot of fun. The sad truth is that the food was average and the service was worse than bad, and it... More
