“Ok drinks, not great food, it's an undergrad bar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

It's ok, the atmosphere is fun, but the food and drinks are only average or even a bit less.

“Service was non-existent”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

The service at this eatery was horrible. Food took forever, server only came back once. Took 10 minutes for him to return so we could leave.

“Comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

If you are looking for a place to get some breakfast at two in the afternoon this it on South University. Food is slightly above average. Heard they have good pizza but did not try it. Will get to it next time. Very clean inside.

“Not as good as I hoped”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

I had not been to the Brown Jug in several years, but I remembered it as a nice campus hangout. It was not on this visit. Admittedly, most students were on summer vacation, but the TVs everywhere made it feel more like a sports bar than a campus hangout. The sandwiches and salad were good, not great, and the service was surprisingly slow, considering how empty it was. I don't plan to go back any time soon.

“Rudest workers of any AA bar”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2010

Bartender and door men were rude and outrageously elitist for such a run of the mill place.
