“Good dinner”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I wanted to eat at a local establishment when in St. Louis and this was close to my hotel. I had their baby back ribs with onion rings and an Abbaye de Leffe Blonde. Everything was very good. The ribs were very meaty and were perfectly cooked. Good sauce - not too hot, not too bland. The onion rings were battered and pretty standard. Almost anything goes better with an Abbaye de Leffe. The service was prompt and courteous. I'll go back.

“Our local "go to" place”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Great American food. If you want to watch a game, you can catch it here during dinner. In good weather, it is a nice spot to eat outdoors.

“Average American Food”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

A large group of work colleagues ate at J. Bucks after a seminar at the Ritz Carlton in Clayton before we headed back to work. The atmosphere was nice and we were able to sit together in front of the fire place. The food was good, but it was very heavy. I had a burger and sweet potato fries. Just a warning to anyone who likes sweet potato fries they are coated in sugar and cinnamon and do not exactly mix well with ketchup. The service was good and we were in and out quickly.

“Great Service Average Food”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I think this is a chain and it had that chain-like feel. I had a steak and my colleague had salmon. Each entrée was fine; neither great nor awful. The house salad was very nice, good size and fresh ingredients. There were 20 of us and we had a private room. The folks serving us were terrific.
