It was our first time in Needles, and we chose this #1 TA rated restaurant…and were not disappointed. We both had the fish & chips, one with fried clams and the other with fried shrimp with a margarita to wash it down. Most of what we had was very good, and the service was excellent. The only criticism was that... More

We had two experiences at this restaurant/bar. Dinner was pretty good. Beryl served us and she's a treasure - attentive, friendly, helpful, etc. Food choices and quality of what we had excellent.

There is a limited choice of good restaurants in Needles. Juicy's sounded OK and it was close. Staff were particularly friendly. Service was good and the food was good for the price. We enjoyed our dinner and would go back.

As the number one place to eat in Needles, made sense to check it out. We weren't disappointed. We were very well looked after and food was really good. Ribs were particularly good.

Had dinner and breakfast here as it is adjacent to the hotel we stayed in. Food is basic but good. Staff are friendly and we enjoyed a couple of post dinner drinks in the bar.

We were staying at the Best Western for the night and Juicy's is a short walk across the parking lot. The service was excellent (thank you Serena) and our meals hot and fresh. The restaurant is clean and quite large.
