This is just your basic dive bar with a few beers on tap and lots of locals sitting on bar stools. Very casual place if you are looking to just quench your thirst. I would not trust any food prepared here.

Cold beer and pool are the attraction for this old time pub (although they do have a full bar). For those who like a friendly round of pool this is the spot!

My girlfriends and I ducked in here to grab a drink out of the heat (100 degree day), they were busy due to the Britt festival, and had one lone bar tender, but he kept up great and was really friendly and poured some good drinks!

Stopped in for a cold drink after a little wine tasting. Travis the bartender was very nice and friendly. We came back Sunday for another drink and enjoyed a few of the locals. Jacksonville is our new favorite small town in Oregon!

After reading the good reviews, and realizing this was just around the corner, we decided to try J'Ville Tavern for lunch. Although it was open and it was 12:30, no one but a bartender was there. I asked about lunch and he said they don't serve it. I gave it only two stars but I really can't judge the food.... More

This bar is great, totally old school. We like it because it reminds us of our family's bar at home. It's not uncommon that there be only a handful of people one night, next night packed.

We had an excellent meal and great coffee followed by Creme Brulee but we had to wait for that. We received excellent service and over-stayed the normal time but were treated hospitably and enjoyed every minute for which I was grateful because I was trying to visit with an old friend I hadn't seen in awhile.

I never go to taverns, but the food options looked interesting, and they were - quite nice! The staff is very kind: instead of insisting on customers-only, I saw them let a poor exhausted tourist use the restroom. That's class.

J'ville Tavern located in Jacksonville Oregon is a great place to duck in and have a cold beer when visiting historic Jacksonville. This is not a fancy expensive bar. Very blue collar. Also considered to be a lucky place to buy a lottery ticket.
