When I read recently that Jay's is the best dive bar in NJ I figured it was time to finally check it out. I don't know if this is the best, but it fits the mold of every dumpy dive bar that I remember from my 20s. I enjoyed this typical blue collar hang out that you can come directly... More

I, personally, wasn't impressed with Jay's. I love a good dive bar but this place was just crowded and a bit unwelcoming to me. I'm sure it's a good time if you're not exhausted and over 30 years old.

The wings are good. The pitchers are reasonable. There are pool tables and the floors are sticky! What else could you want in a local dive bar? Keep up the good world Jay's!

Stopped by Jay's Elbow Room for bite to eat at lunchtime. Found out Jay's offers a $1.00 lunch sandwich special every weekday. The sandwich that day was roast beef on a Kaiser roll. Sandwich was very good! Good sized sandwich for just $1.00. I will definitely return to sample the other four daily lunch sandwich special over the next several... More

Have been coming to Jays for 20 plus years. It is unfortunately one of the few remaining neighborhood bars. Aside from that they have the best wings in SJ....beers are cold and the locals friendly. A must do when in the area.

Great place to stop and have a beer and maybe a bite to eat. Friendly gathering of people who are all local area natives so the place is really fun.

A friend was in town and wanted to get together for a few beers and a bite to eat after his meeting. I know he is a big beer aficionado and also know he isn't a fan of pretentious eateries. I have known of Jay's Elbow Room for many, many years. On occasion I go there to have a few... More
