“Good Stuff”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

A lot of "locals" which added to the friendly and comfotable atmosphere. Good fish and chips, which I would get again.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

The fish and chips were pretty good - I'd recommend them to anyone.
I was a little hestiant to eat here; a local had told me it was a big biker place after dark and implied that they weren't friendly with others.
I may have eaten early, but I didn't experience any problems.
I plan on coming back to try a few other things on their menu.

“Decent bar good, good service”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Typical bar type food, but excellent service. Very friendly staff and other customers went out of they way to make us feel welcome when they learned we were from out of town.

“Brother Don's in Bremerton”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Some reviewers have called this place a dive, so just to be clear: This is not a fancy Martini bar.

The good news is it's a homey place with the nicest people you'll ever meet. Go on a Wednesday night about 7 pm and hear the Songwriter's Showcare (and lately, one comic). There will plenty of good folks there. Order yourself some fish and chips (the sign doesn't lie - these are the BEST fish and chips in Kitsap County! They also have the best cheeseburger of anywhere in Kitsap County. The pizza and nachos are also good, and the rib eye steak is pretty good (don't order this if you don't like pepper), but maybe a little overpriced at $19.95 (comes with fires or baked potato, a roll, and soup or salad). My only complaint is on those busy nights they are understaffed for servers.

Brother Don's is known for great music. Among the regulars' favorites: Jeff Tassin, Bill Brown and the King Bees, Payday Daddy and many others, including those Jeff plays with such as Al Alto, l.a. Jones, and others locals have followed for years.

Wear your jeans and kick back here. If you're wearing a cocktail dress this isn't the right place for you. Think Cheers bar.

Another good thing: This may be a down-home bar, but in the 20 or so times I've been there I've not heard or seen one out of control drunk. These are civilized people, mostly regulars who like to eat, listen to good music, visit, and have a drink on a Friday or Saturday night.

“Good Portions, Good View”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Despite a bit of a biker crowd, we liked this place. Varied menu. Probably could do with more service help.
