The atmosphere really sells the place. Located in Riverside area of Jacksonville, on a Saturday night it's pretty filled with everyone in the spirit of having a good time. Went with friends and of course you're there to grab a drink, try different portions of their beer selection and just have a good time. Again the atmosphere sells the place and the food isn't too bad either.

If you have yet to experience a true gastropub, then a trip to Kickbacks Gastropub is a necessity in your near future. Located in Jacksonville, FL, Kickback's will have you wondering what brings you back time after time, the mouthwatering food or the vast selection of craft beers from around the country and around the world. Wether your mouth is watering for a fluffanutter and a basket of funnel cake fries, a tempe breakfast wrap at all hours of the day/night or a finely baked brie wrapped inside a puff pastry with strawberry preserves, your taste buds will thank you for making the trek to Kickbacks. The hardest decision you will have to make is which of the 80+ beers on tap will you want to pair with your tasty meal? Lucky you, the great servers and bartenders can help you find your new favorite in minutes or you can download their app for iPhones or Androids and pre plan your 5 o'clock delight. So what are you waiting for, hop down to King St. and enjoy!

The beer selection is amazing and I'm having a good time trying out lots of different and interesting flavors.

The appetizers are fun. The sandwiches are great. The entrees are kind of hit or miss. The jambalaya has been good, the fish and chips are too greasy and the stir-fry was overseasoned.

The cheesesteak is fantastic with good meat and lots of fresh peppers and mushrooms. The buffalo sandwich was also really good.

Normally we just order a bunch of appetizers and share. We enjoyed the brie plate, wings, and fried pickles.

We also like playing trivia and just hanging out so this is a great place to go.

I will say that their breakfast completely sucks balls. Their cook doesn't even know how to cook eggs. After trying to pass off the runniest eggs I've ever seen as "over medium", the runner took the plate back into the kitchen and the cook threw them back on the griddle. The result was hard yolks and still-runny whites. Nastiness. The grits were good but the meats were cooked to death. The coffee had grounds in it. There were a bunch of folks in the restaurant at 9am drinking beer so they clearly weren't there for the food.

I very much enjoy the food, atmosphere and drinks! KB's has become the spot for me and my friends whenever we want to grab a drink! Besides the amazing beer selection and the awesome decor the food is DELICIOUS! Im not much of a mushroom fan, but the french mushroom spread is the best! They have huge servings so its easy to grab an appetizer and a pitcher or two with some friends. The mac n cheese is homemade and MASSIVE! It does get a little crowded at night, but they are the only place to grab a bite thats open from 7am-3am. Say what you will, but us locals love our hole in the wall :)

This place is a MESS!! The food is horrible, the the service is better at McDonalds in the ghetto, and there was a fight about to happen at the bar. First failure was our waitress who looked like she needed a shower and a good nights rest. Second was the nauseating stripper drinks that they think people like, we didnt even drink them and they never took it off the check, and we never touched our drinks. If this place is for hipsters then why are they serving "Jolly Ranchers"? Really. The final failure was the 1 hour wait for appetizers along with a story about with her (k) and the cook don't get along. I was so disappointed and sick to my stomach. Run fast in the other direction.And by the way our waitress, if that's what were calling her, left briefly to go to the store. Really.
