Brother Jimmy's BBQ, at the El San Juan Resort & Casino in Puerto Rico, crafts tantalizing barbecue dishes with southern American flair. The creamy and chunky guacamole, prepared tableside and the tender Northern-style rib tips make the perfect starters. Some of Brother Jimmy's BBQ's specialty entrées include the smoked sliced brisket dinner, the southern style St. Louis rib dinner in a Memphis dry rub and the tender pulled chicken dinner in original barbecue sauce, all of which can be accompanied by sides like BBQ baked beans, mac and cheese, fried sweet potatoes and rice and beans. Sandwiches, like the pulled pork wrap with pickles and slaw, the Buffalo-style spicy fried chicken sandwich and Brother Jimmy's Cuban with smoked pork, ham and gruyere cheese, are also incredibly flavorful.
Brother Jimmy's BBQ's signature cocktails, like the fish bowl “swamp water”, are excellent with your barbecue meal.
The service and food was awful. The hotel is under construction and it seemed that nothing was fresh. Even the soda did not taste right.
Food was cold, tasted like it was old. After returning meal it came back cold again(all they did was microwave). Sent food back and paid for drinks and went elsewhere for dinner. Prices are way too high for such poor food quality. Wouldn't recommend to anybody.
The service was terrible. This hotel is in the resort, but the resort has zero responsibility over the restaurant. we were twice turned away due to inability to seat our wedding group of 15 - but then we made reservations through Open Table (only apparently they don't use open table). would not recommend. we live in NYC and have a brother jimmys here that is excellent. disappointed in this restaurant in Puerto Rico. all the other restaurants in the resort were great.
I ordered snapper special that looked good but tasted like it was frozen and made yesterday! It was hard to cut with knife... So rubbery and had nor taste. Strange to find a house special that is so bad.
This was a great restaurant to go to for my family and friends after being out in the sun on a boat snorkeling all day! We could dress casually and just continue our fun relaxed day. The food was very good. It was typical pub food, burgers, ribs, wings, fries, etc. This was the second time that we visited and ate at Brother Jimmy's while on a trip to Puerto Rico. Both times we went after having a very busy day of excursions. It was just a nice low key, relaxed place to get dinner. Both times we went at night, but I'm sure the view during the day of the ocean and surrounding beach from this 10th floor roof restaurant is beautiful!
It's fine for what it is.
8 people went
7 lousy dinners
Had to send pork and ribs back. Like shoe leather.
I recommended the restaurant after having been there many years ago. Must be different owners now.
This is a nice casual spot on the tenth floor of the El San Juan Hotel & Casino. Great views. The staff was very friendly. Food was decent and pricing was competitive especially for the location. HOWEVER, we were eaten alive by mosquitos because the window shutters were open and there are no screens. We ate and ran simply because we couldn't stand being eaten alive and it isn't our idea of enjoyment spraying Off! on ourselves while trying to eat. Really too bad, as we were looking forward to some casual fun.
My friend and I visited on a Sunday night. The place was almost empty with the exceptions of a few people watching the Mets game. The service was slowwwwwwww. Food was ok but no comparison to the Brother Jimmy's I'm use to in NYC.
My bill totaled $250 for four adults and four little kids aged six and under. I felt paying $13-$14 for a cocktail is too high considering this is the same price for a cocktail if you are dining in the high end steakhouse or Italian restaurant on the same property. I also think $21 for approximately 16 wings is too much. Additionally I was told if I was staying at the hotel I would receive 10% off my bill. I told the waitress I was staying at the hotel and charged the meal to my room and I still did not receive the 10% discount. On a side note the view is awesome and you are out doors so if you enjoy a nice tropical breeze from a roof top this is worth checking out.
