“You should eat here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Had a late lunch here today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Greeted as soon as I stepped inside which I always take as a good sign, seated where I desired, and immediately was given menus for drinks and food. I would be happy to take about 3 weeks to work my way through the winter drink specials but since I have only one visit this year settled on a slightly spicy Blood Mary served with lots of garbage-old bartender's term for the extras in a drink, in this case asparagus, green beans, pepperoncini, olive, lime, celery in the glass-a tasty drink. Ordered the Buffalo Chicken salad, kinda like a modified Cobb with bleu cheese chunks, chopped carrot, pretty fresh greens, cucumbers, and perhaps the best flavored Buffalo Chicken slabs I've ever experienced-zippy, cooked perfectly, just right portion size. Can't wait to enjoy a meal here next year with my wife when we both are here in lovely Bend. It was a cold Saturday, the town had canceled the Christmas Parade for the first time due to wind chills in the -10 range but this place was full at 3PM with late lunchers. BTW Trip Advisor has this misspelled, it is Brother Jon's.

“Galvaston location”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Food was not what we expected. Cajun dish was way to spicy, not pleasant to eat. Kids hamburger came with no garnish, had to ask twice for some. Service was OK. For the cost of the hamburger it should come with fries, not just celery, cucumbers and carrots. they charge an up-charge for the fries. Would not recommend it and will not go there again.

“Fabulous Burger with terrific service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Just left Brother John's in Bend. Super impressed with my roasted jalapeño chix burger. Didn't wait at all and my husband loved the Boneyard IPA! Will definitely go back!

“Really good pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Best cheeseburgers, very tasty selection of crafted beers, generous salads, and a knowledgable staff makes this small sports pub a wise selection. No need to wait in long lines elsewhere in town, as this place is just as good if not better.
