The staff was friendly. The burgers and fries were great. It has a local bar atmosphere. Portions are big so go hungry.

It’s ok for an informal bite. Very strong beer smell. We just had burgers and sandwiches. We are boaters and off season is a challenge in Jamestown for good spots.

Sunday Blues and Bloodies is fun but the service is terrible compared with the Ganny of old. I would think the owner would see a drop in revenue. Barmaids very slow. Took 20 min to get a round for my friends. Much better when Sue,...More
