Went to celebrate my niece’s 21st! Great bar for and the shrimp Mac & cheese was to die for. Specialty drink were meh. I only tried one before giving up and moving on to beer. Good place to spend a fun night

Stopped in for a snack and a few drinks before heading out for the night. Buffalo mac and cheese was everything that you would want it to be and the drinks were impressive as well!

I’ve been to JJ Bootleggers twice now and both times were bad experiences. First time I felt like the bartender was rude with an attitude but I understand we all have our bad days so I was whatever about it. Then, the second time I...didn’t really want to go but the rest of my friends wanted to and I wish we never did. We walked in and all you get is dirty looks from the staff like you shouldn’t be walking into the bar?? I go to order and I see a sign that says “Cinco De Mayo specials” which it was Cinco De Mayo that day so I ask the bartender if those were the specials today and she goes “No” in a very rude tone like I was the biggest idiot for asking that. Afterwards I said well are there any specials today and she replied No in a nasty tone again making me feel dumb for asking a normal question. At this point I’m pretty much completely done with this place so I just order a corona light and she goes to get it and comes back, again in this nasty, nasty voice yells “We only have corona extra.” I answer saying okay that’s fine then she tells me it’s $7 and gives me a lemon instead of a lime... Overall, I will NEVER return and this place is overpriced and full of girls with nasty attitudes that just want you to tip them.More

Loud, rowdy, and packed to the rafters! Jump off place to get your drink on and a meal before you go attack the nightlife. Great wait staff who always asked if you needed your drink refreshed or your meal satisfaction. Get there early for good...seats. I grabbed a table on the wall and enjoyed the flow and actions of the patrons. For the young or young at heart. Food was top notch in every way!More

Don't go on Karaoke night unless you are prepared for ownership to dictate what you sing. I have been singing at Karaoke bars for 27 years and I never had any of them tell me I could not sing certain music. Find another place!

Pretty empty for a Friday night we though but it was early. Had cocktails and their wings which were very good but happy hour gets you only 5.

They had a wide variety of flavors of moonshine, which was delicious! The food and service were excellent. I had a philly steak sandwich and my husband had wings and both meals were delicious. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Cool place - just had some drinks there initially but no other patrons which is confusing. It looks cool but it wasn't filled up even for dinner. Drinks were good though!!!!

This restaurant looked amazing, great menu, walked in and no staff to be seen. My brother and I waited a good 5 mins and even asked 2 people who were drinking a beer where the staff were. They had no idea and were waiting for...a refill too. We walked out. Hungry :(More

For me the prices seemed average $12-$25, but the Philly cheese steak was a bit more reasonable, as I recall and was fantastic.
