Brother Jimmy's - Murray Hill Ratings and Reviews
Good barbecue. There are better places in the city but this is fine.
We were there when the Yankees were playing Cleveland so there was loud music PLUS the play by play. And lots of drunken fans at the bar. Not annoying...just LOUD. Turn the music down if you're showing the game.
Food and ambience was good overall, service was terrible. It was impossible to even find the waitress or anyone to refill our water or give us silverware. The bouncer was extremely rude, he made us show him our id's when we were sitting at a table to eat dinner at 7:00 on a Tuesday and made me throw out an unopened water bottle I had in my bag and then gave us attitude when we asked where the restrooms were. We would maybe come back when it's less crowded or try one of the other locations.
there were 6 of us and it was just a terrible Saturday night experience. the service stank. the food was cold. the portions incredible small. okay taste but really....6 ribs in a Full Rack?? they must be kidding and charging $24 bucks!!??
Food sent back. Tasteless chicken. Rubber brisket and awful service. Noise level indescribable.
Just an awful time was had by all!
We appreciate that we are not the target market for Jimmy's, but this was probably the most disappointing meal of our 10 days in New York. Serving staff superficially polite, but not really that interested. Food was very ordinary, especially the pulled pork - frankly what I cook at home in the UK is considerably better. We would not return, nor recommend to others.
Loved the southern style menu and the happy hour. Great cocktails. Waitress was really friendly and helpful. Lively bar area and lots of sports screens, we were in a quieter area just off the bar that suited our mixed age group. Everyone had a great night and thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks, especially the free shots and "pickle juice" Thanks Brother Jimmys.
The food was low quality BBQ in our opinions. We are from KC and had expectations of good southern style BBQ. The food was poorly seasoned and over priced. The environment was like sitting in a college bar with more patrons drinking rather than eating. I would not return to this establishment nor recommend it to anyone I know traveling to NYC.
This was the ultimate in comfort food. The "Northern" ribs were very tasty - plenty of fat to add to the tasty and tenderness of the meat. The "George tea" was a high proof refreshing tall drink. The waitress was helpful but, I think, over worked. The meal represented a good value informal meal that is sure to leave any diner satisfied.
Have been to Brother Jimmy's 31st/8th-, but not been to Murray Hill location before. Had to wait way too long for our food after ordering--and then were missing part of the order. The place was busy, but not crowded--there were empty tables. Not our server's fault, and she did discount some of our order. The BBQ items were good--pulled pork, brisket, pulled chicken, baked beans & cornbread; fried chicken and burger were just OK. Based on this experience, though our server apologized profusely, would not recommend or go back any time soon. I will return to the 31st/8th Ave. location, however.
The ribs live up to their reputation. This is hearty "Southern style" cooking. The restaurant is short staffed but they are helpful and the food comes out promptly after the order is placed.
This is not a place to hold a serious conversation but it has a convivial and friendly atmosphere that is conducive to a gathering of friends.
For a tasty and affordable meal with few "frills" this is hard to beat.
went on mardi gras - and despite the beads and masks on the wait staff and the band singing every song that referenced New Orleans - it was just another night. That aside - it was a good dinner with cool drinks (lots of non vodka choices, finally!) plenty of appetizers to share and bbq combo plates are a lot of food (and delicious) sweet potato tater tots and fried brussel sprouts were the stand out sides. desserts menu made it hard to decide.
The food was very good. The atmosphere was a loud frat party around our table that was out of control. Management and security should have stepped in to calm the crowd down. If you want to go to this restaurant and not party all night, try another location.
I went with a group of my co workers last Friday and we started out with drinks. My drink was not that strong nor did I get a buzz. I then ordered the blacken fish sandwich which had no favor. My french fries were good I actually like the one near Madison Square Garden better. And to top it all off they told us that happy hour was only offered at the bar... like really?
The food was not the best southern food I've had - the chicken wings were border line cooked and the skins were soft. Chicken wings should be crispy in my book! The brisket and bun were cold. The pulled pork was too salty. However, the mac/cheese was cheesy and the fries were crispy.
They had good entertainment for the kids - a neat crayon holder, coloring place mat/menu, and balloons with toy lizard as the anchor, and kids ate for free.
If you love a good drink the swamp water is the drink for you. If you love good mixture of music this is the place for you. If you like some great regional bbq sauce this is the place for you. If you enjoy good eats then i would recommend this place for you.
Reserved a table for 6 on a Sunday to watch a specific sporting event. To my surprise the place was fairly empty which worked out great. They had the event on numerous TVs that we could all see; the service was great, and the food/ drink were what was expected.
Actually surprised by this experience because normally BJs is a frat party for those who can't let college go.
Thank you Brother Jimmy's for a good experience.
I don't remember the waitress coming back to ask if everything was ok. Oh and we had to ask 3x times for sugar on the table it was very comical. But, that Turkey Burger you guys make with the sauteed onions is fantastic! I had it without cheese. Mac n Cheese was not great, not creamy enough nor very flavorful, could use some improvement
Shocked with how poor the service was.After asking the host twice to send our server over as nobody approached us within 20mins of sitting down we finally got our server.Beers & food ordered we were relaxed at that point. Our wings arrived before our drinks and then when our drinks arrived we got draft beer when we ordered btl beer(having spelt BOTTLE to her as she looked cluelessly at us).Wings were tasty but chicken sandwich was drier than dry.When it came to the bill the mgr promised to comp a round of drinks & then take "something" off the food whatever that mean't but when receiving the bill naturally we were charged for everything.Seriously, how hard is it to take an order, drop off beer & then check in to see if everything is ok!!?
I already loved Brother Jimmy's but this rainy Sunday night def didn't stop the people from enjoying themselves. My country fried steak was great as usual and my waitress made sure I was taken care of the whole time. I can't wait to go back with some of my friends I see who can finish their fish bowl first ha !
