Ordered from here several times, they may need a new cook, the sides were uneatable, the meat is to soft, sure sign of over cooking. The last time I ordered delivery, they sent the wrong food, so being that I live around the the corner, I took the food back, can't help to think who's order I was walking around... More

Holiday lunch for group of 15 today. Worried about how we would do with a big group but service was attentive and professional. Food was served in a timely manner and was pretty darn good. Fried green tomatoes and grit sticks were standout appetizers. We had a lot of different entrees which were all good. The building is somewhat historic.... More

Jamaica Center continues to make a great comeback, and the opening of City Rib about a year ago recognizes the young and with it. Great recipes, good drinks, and weekend evening music keep me coming back. You can eat at the bar and on weekends you won't find better than bartender JR. Friendly and attentive management and waitstaff as well.... More

Service is erratic, food is well prepared, but wait staff needs an upgrade. The kitchen was out of Mac & Cheese; and when I went previously they were out of beef brisket. The bar area is busy and well attended, maybe at the expense of the restaurant area.

The food was good...I live in Brooklyn and heard that the food was good here. It has a BBQ/sports bar look which was cool. The waitress was really friendly and made suggestions on the appetizers and she was dead on. Everything she suggested was tasty and good. We had margaritas which weren't the best. Next time I will stick with... More

Nice atmosphere, open spacious, professional and attentive waitstaff. Loved the wings tangy and meaty, Ribs were tasty but not falling off the bone. Salad okay, little over dressed.Wine was a bit pricey Good spot to meet friends for dinner or drinks, near transportation, Worth a try if you are in the area.

Nice atmosphere, good food. The brisket and ribs were falling-apart tender. The roast chicken was very good and flavorful. I was disappointed by their wings and mashed potatoes. I'll be back I want to try their chicken and waffles.
