They can't stop you from ordering steaks and a glass of water. But overall, its not a quality steak. Really poor quality.

Special mother's day menu. They were out of half of the menu that they offered! They were out of multiple items from each course. Service was so slow. Dinner came out over 15 min between 4 diff runs. The owner couldn't even come to the...table to apologize. Will not be going back.More

Last night we went to the Rocky Point location with 13 people to celebrate our son's 24th birthday! Everything turned out wonderful due to the extraordinary efforts of our waitress Denise! She was super friendly, professional and excellent in every way! If you go, definitely...ask for Denise, as she stands out above the rest!!More

In the area, looking for a good place with American fare. Its been several years since I have been here, and past experiences have been okay, but not excellent. Seemed much better this time. Service pretty good, menu items varied and good selection, but a...little pricey. Not too bad, though. Probably will go here again if in the area...More

J & R has amazing food at incredibly reasonable prices at all their locations. Lunch and dinner are equally a good value. We miss the pot roast -hope they bring that back - also miss the port tenderloin. The apple pie and cheesecake are amazing...desserts. We mostly go the the location near Calverton but have been to all of them and they are all great!More

First time visiting this restaurant since it was Big Barry's Restaurant for lunch and the food and portions are tremendous. Best grilled porkchop I have ever had. Apple pie delicious but would have liked it warm. JR's Steaksauce is must to try.

Casual reasonable dining. Large portions, great deals every day. Huge restaurant with huge parking lot. Also serves golfers, it's on the golf course, right on Rt25A. Lots of "special deals", check online, it's a huge menu. My favorite is marinated rib or skirt steak, and...the RACK OF LAMB is as good as other restaurants at double the price.More

My husband and I often went to J&R's in Stony Brook, but it closed after severe damage after a storm. I was our "go to" place and we missed it! We decided to try the one in Rocky Point recently and were so very disappointed....We sat in an area with about 9 tables near the kitchen. Whenever a table was bused, the plates sounded as if they were thrown down onto the collection area near the kitchen! Crashing sounds all during the entire meal. Couldn't carry on a conversation! I specifically asked about what was in the salad since I only eat iceberg or romaine lettuce. I was assured no other greens were in it. When it came out, I made a pile of some kind of greens in the bread dish, leaving me little salad. I asked if it could be changed to a Caesar salad. That arrived and tasted like vinegar. It was awful! Couldn't eat it either. (J&R's salads were always fresh and delicious!) Steaks came. Hubby and I both ordered medium rare. His came out flawless. Mine overdone. I was too hungry to complain and the service was at a snail's pace, but when the waiter finally came to see if everything was ok, I showed him the steak. Well, he agreed, and offered another . . . no deal, it was getting late. The best part is when he said my husband's steak was a bit thicker! I'm thinking you wouldn't cook them for the same duration if one is thicker than the other! Will never go back. Terrible that it owns such a reputable name!More
