I was really looking forward to trying Danny J's because I had heard good things about the establishment. However, our waitress made it quite obvious that she had no interest in working that night. She was unhappy to be there and completely disinterested in our order. She never once came back to the table to check if we wanted anything else or if the food was good. It's a good thing she didn't ask because I would have had to tell her how lousy the food really was. Totally disappointment. Don't waste your money. I won't ever again.

We went to Danny J's for Easter brunch. Food was ok. Service was poor. We didn't find out until after we paid and were leaving that they had a made to order omelette station. That would have been nice to know!

We were there for brunch on Easter Sunday. It was very good and the Easter Bunny was a bonus for our two year old grandson. Nobody had a bad thing to say about anything. We were there at noon sitting on the main floor so it wasn't overly noisy. The staff was very cordial and they were very quick to refill brunch dishes so that everyone could enjoy seconds even thirds if they wanted. And who can beat $3 mimosa's!

I was very disappointed in their easter brunch buffet. I've been before for drinks and dinner and it was alright, but to spend $80+ for myself and two children to eat cold eggs and bacon, not get refills on my drinks, and have a dry piece of cake for dessert was ridiculous. We will not be returning.

Brunch at 11am. Made reservations but there was no one in there. Food was good but some things could have been warmer. Omelette station was great! $3 mimosas was a steal too

7 ppl for brunch. We didn’t pat take in the Bloody Mary bar, so I can’t comment on that. There was a nice brunch buffet with some upgraded items like cheese fries, meatballs, chicken and waffles. It hit busy fast and service was a little slow, but overall worth it for a fun brunch spot in Utica.

They have definitely gone downhill. When it first open the food was good. In our most previous experience we were disappointed. But we gave it another chance and invited another couple along. The quality was so so. The meal value is not worth the prices. The server didn't even bring me the chili I ordered. Will not return.

This was are first time and last time at Danny Js. The bang bang shrimp was good and so was the sandwich we ordered. Everything was going good until we received our check. While we were waiting for our CC to come back we witnessed a waitress who was redoing her hair in the kitchen...not only once but multiple times running her fingers through her hair and try to put it in a ponytail. On top of it after several minutes of disbelief no hand washing was done either. To make matters worse the chef at the pizza oven was playing with his phone while leaning his uncovered arms on the prep area and again no hand washing. This was the same employee who sneezed in that area when we first sat down. Lets just say we didn’t order pizza for a reason. We are happy we didn’t see any of this before ordering but couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

I love their Sunday brunch bar! You can have breakfast where they offer all sorts of good eats along with made to order omelettes or you can have lunch with salad, chicken and veggies. Whenever my daughter comes in from California, we always make sure to dine here. The wait staff is friendly and the owner on more than one occasion has allowed me to add another guest just a day or two before my reservation. They often have a solo guitarist playing for ambience. He is never overpowering where you would need to shout over his music. It's really quite a nice experience. Prices are reasonable considering the choices you have and I've never had a bad experience here. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Danny Js for always providing a wonderful dining experience.

Attentive service, wide variety of well priced casual options on the menu, Well beyond normal "tavern" fare. Appealing interior. Parking is a little bit of an issue, particularly with other events going in the downtown area.

Our server Tasha was a down to earth, attentive, knowledgeable and extremely sweet girl. The owner and hostess were very warm and welcoming. It was Happy Birthday celebration and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the exceptional service. Danny J’s wings were some of the best wings we ever had (Parmesan, ranch and mild sauce coating). We cannot remember the exact name of the sauce, but those were the ingredients. The only reason I gave 4 stars for food was the Au Jus lacked some saltiness and my husband’s prime rib sandwich was just a tiny bit tough. But, these were minor details. The overall experience was very positive and we will definitely be returning. Please make sure to order the skillet chocolate chip cookie. It was superb!

Went during happy hour at 5:30pm with a group of 5 for my mom’s bday. She was looking forward to doing country line dancing upstairs at 6:30pm. We ordered food a little before 6pm, and our food didn’t come out until 6:40pm. I had to wait on the server at the bar in order to get my table to cash out at 7pm. Needless to say, we didn’t make the line dancing class because by the time everything was said and done, it was 7:15pm. My mom was very disappointed. We ordered beef tips, 2 pastas, lettuce wraps, soup and salad, and a burger. We were one of 3 tables in the bar when we placed our order. Food was average at best and missed the mark. The server/bartender was fine, but because we had to keep asking for stuff like waters and straws and our bill, I marked service down.

Big major issue - we came during happy hour and couldn’t order happy hour because we didn’t sit at the bar top. I’ve never had this issue at any bar or restaurant I went too before as long as I sat in the bar area. Our table was literally right next to the bar. I frequent happy hours, and I would never come to this happy hour or this bar again.

Worst dining experience. Went for the Sunday brunch, the brunch buffet was empty, took them forever to refill with fresh food and when they did it was minimal. Those that ordered off the menu, their orders took forever. Mgr. Came to the table, offered numerous excuses and made half hearted attempt to make things right but it wasn't enough. I was treating my family and was utterly embarrassed. Pass this one by folks, a complete rip off.

Heard of the Brunch option on the radio, thought we would try it out for Mothers Day, and was very, very pleased!! The food selection was great, nicely presented, attentive staff, and everything was delicious! Even our 14 year old son was impressed which is no small feat.

Will be going back.

Thank you
