Visited last week. Had the small sirloin and it was delicious. Cooked perfectly. Service very courteous and helpful. Enjoyed the meal very much.

We've been here many times over the years and, sorry to say, the food isn't what it used to be. Tonight four of us ordered 1/2 racks of ribs and each of us agreed they were no longer the fall-off-the-rib tender meat we've had in the past. They were also fatty and seemed to have been re-heated in a microwave. I'd chalk this up to a bad night but this has happened to us a few other times when the restaurant wasn't yet in full-season swing.

To top it off, we arrived at 5:50pm and were expecting pre-6:00 pm early-bird prices, as advertised in the May 30th issue of local paper. Our waiter told us that the end time for the early-bird prices moved to 5:00pm on June 1. (Today is June 4). When we complained to the manager his response was "well, the ad is wrong."

The inconsistent food quality, combined with the apparent lack of concern about the incorrect ad, has resulted in us scratching J.R.'s off our list.

We arrived at the J-R's ribs on upper end not the one on 68th street. We were sitted and waited 10 mins before anyone came to take our drink order 1st. Next we ordered our food, the table next to us on either side came AFTER us and they were served drinks and food before we waited another 20 minutes before we got our food. My kids loved their ribs, so we enjoy coming here. Our waitress never came to refill our drinks once. The tables around us have left. We waited 45 minutes just to get our check. 45 minutes...I had to find a manager to look for our waitress. The restaurant was not busy as they are usually not opened during the week on off season. BAD experience.

Our hesitation when we first walked in should have been our indication of things to come! It wasn't really late but there wasn't that many people in the restaurant. The menu offers few selections if you don't like seafood or ribs. My friend who likes both ordered mussels and Maryland crab soup. The mussels didn't taste right so she sent them back. The soup was just as bad but not wanting to complain about everything just didn't eat it. My chopped salad was supposed to have olives but they were out of them. My other friends chicken Caesar was okay. They only offer one brand of wine. Our hostess offered us a free round of drinks for our less than good meal which we accepted but barely touched. Our waitress was friendly and surely the food was not her fault.

ok, we order the corned beef and cabbage, the meat was tough and chewy, the potatoes were dry and the cabbage was overseasoned with spices, almost taste like soap. my kids got mac and cheese and fries, they only ate the fries, mac and cheese was horrible, hubby got the ribs which was burnt and hard, Only good thing was the waiter who was really nice and did a good job.
would not eat here again.
