This is a sports bar in Downtown New Haven and it’s empty on a Sunday during football season, so you know something is wrong. The food was actually pretty good, although they messed up the order a little. The problem was really with the service....More

Walked into Brother Jimmy's today. 5pm. Only one customer in the place. Sat at the bar. Two bar staff at the end of the bar, talking and laughing with each other. Didn't say anything to me, so I left.

Nice location, good atmosphere, tasty beef/chicken/pork barbeque including hushpuppies. Fairly fast service but was not crowded when we went (late Saturday afternoon). I'd like to come back and check out the bar at night!

I really appreciate and value attentive and informed bar staff. But this place was a mess. Sat down. Waited. Waited a bit more. A quiet early Friday evening. Two waitresses preoccupied with who knows what - failing to say hello. They have four great HD...More
