Conshohocken restaurant & bar serving lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday with brunch on Saturday & Sunday.

Head Chef Scott Simmers has experience with both Southwest and Island flavors, so he pulls inspiration from those experiences to create many of our dishes. Fresh fish or meat, tropical flavors, and a little bit of spice are common in his creations like the popular Braised Short Ribs and Pan Seared Red Snapper.

Our very own herb garden on our second floor balcony provides fresh handpicked herbs for our kitchen and bar. We emphasize fresh fruit and herb infusion in our handcrafted specialty cocktails, and offer local craft beer and spirits along with an exceptional wine list.

Entrées not available on Sunday.

Had a 6:30 reservation on a Wednesday night and was not seated until 7:45. Just keep telling us sorry no table opened, so basically they don’t understand how to take reservations and not give tables away to walk ins. The restaurant inside has horrible acoustics. It is so loud in the dinning room. Vey hard to have a conversation! Ordered food and it took over an hour for our entree to be served, so it came after 9 pm on a Wednesday night. When it finally came the 1 fish dish was so dry with no taste. Told the waitress but we were so hungry at that point we were not going to wait for another entree to be cooked. Server said manager would come talk to us. He never did. I can’t image how horrible the wait at this place is on a busy weekend if it was like this on a Wednesday night.
It is a cute place but if u actually want to talk to your guest at dinner good luck and don’t go hungry as u will wait for hours for just ok food

We were able to sit outside on the deck which was beautiful, though we were sat right under one of the speakers, so the music was a bit loud. The drinks and food were served in a reasonable amount of time. The food was delicious and the perfect sized portion.

I don't dine here very often but menu has been the same since it's opening. It's good but adding daily specials would offer additional menu items.

Service was excellent! Food was delicious. We’ll be back!! Just being super picky here but the pineapple in my fruit salad wasn’t fresh and my turkey sausage wasn’t hot. Most people probably wouldn’t even notice.

This is my fourth visit and the first time where the food was not as expected and the service not great.
My husband ordered fried with his burger and they arrive after he was finished his burger. We will definitely try again but hope we have a better experience next time as we are bringing friends for the first time on Sat evening.

A real gem In Conshohocken. The food,service,atmosphere are second to none. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and if you are able to get Jess to help you, it just puts the cherry in top.

The staff is lovely.....I loved my dinner though the other three members of our party were not as enthusiastic. My husband thought the short ribs were a little dry...and my friend felt that her Cobb salad could have bee “ more interest “ I hope that is helpful.....I am not stating it to be critical.

The atmosphere was very nice. The food was good but was very pricey. After eating the entree, I left the restaurant still feeling hungry. I probably will not return due to the fact that it is overpriced.

This was my 4th time at Jaspers and have to say it was not great this weekend. Our service was very slow. We had the crab fries and they came out barely warm and the cheese was curdled and think but the ribs were great. As far as dinner my husband had ribeye that was supposed to be cooked rare and came out medium well... extremely disappointing for the price. I had the flank steak and it was just okay...a little tough. I have 3 kids and we don't get out often and for $150 I expect at least the food to be hot and cooked correctly. It may help of the server wrote down the order. I won't be back anytime soon but I cannot argue the atmosphere I love it but the service and food just wasn't great this time which was disappointing.

Incredibly Disappointing--We went on a Friday night and were looking forward to sitting outside. We had a reservation, and we were greeted and seated promptly at a nice table in the open air courtyard. All the tables were full and the noise level made it difficult to hear the singer or each other. Our server introduced herself and told us the specials. We didn't see her back for quite some time to order drinks. Once we did order our drinks, it again was a noticeably long time for her to bring them. She then took our meal order. We ordered 2 appetizers and we each ordered an entree. Approximately 40 minutes later, another employee arrived at our table with our entrees, which we refused. Right behind was another server with our appetizers, which we accepted. We told both of them that we did not want the same entrees served to us after being held somewhere under a warmer. They both seemed confused with this, and so we asked to speak with the manager. The manager eventually came over and apologized and assured us that they would never serve the same entrees again later. Food was mediocre and certainly not worth the price. To top off the whole experience, on the way to our car, we walked past a group of employees just outside the kitchen smoking a joint. Overall, incredibly disappointing.

Make sure you ask how much the specials cost. A small martini bowl "special" appetizer with small round tomatoes and a little handful of mozzarella balls with balsamic glaze was a very overpriced appetizer as were the "sushi grade tuna" entrees ($33 each). It's a nice place but those prices are too high. The appetizers and dinner came out at exactly the same time. Not really a problem just not what we would expect for prices charged. We enjoyed ourselves but probably won't be back soon.

The food was not as good as past trips here. The burger was overdone and not appetizing and the sweet potato fries were not done. Highlights were the guacamole with homemade chips and the pork sandwich. The waiter was overly stressed and busy.

Simply stated, this is my kind of place! The decor welcomes like a warm hug. The staff is friendly and professional. The best food in Conshohocken in my humble opinion. The crab, avocado and mango tagine was to die for! Enormous lumps of crabmeat, fresh and delicious, highlighted by largely-diced mango. We also were thrilled to enjoy the chicken and bacon kabob. Everything was just wonderful. All our dishes from appetizers to desserts all impressed my husband and friend from Buffalo. We will be back as soon as we can.

This was my 4th or 5th time eating at Jasper’s Backyard. Their food is excellent. I decided to try the pork tacos this time around, and I was not disappointed. They were fantastic. The only drawback to our dining experience was the service. Our waiter came by when I first got their, but then disappeared for about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, this most affected my companion, who had arrived after me and was waiting to order her drink. When the waiter did return, he was very polite and apologetic; however, his excuse for leaving us sitting there seemed thin at best. If I’m being honest, this will not affect whether or not we decide to return. That being said, I do hope that either our server learns from this review and can be more attentive in future to his customers.

The restaurant is noisy and not laid out very well. The live performance upstairs was terrible. The service was sales pitch oriented and not very attentive. The food was decently prepared but the plate presentation was lacking. The menu was limited and boring unfortunately.

Jasper’s has a great vibe and very cool indoor and outdoor spaces. Good selection of cocktails including, but not limited to, craft beers (also has solid range of the standards). We had the house salad which has two things going for it that set it above the typical - fresh beets and a nice citrusy dressing. The burger was tasty but definitely over cooked. I asked for medium and got a very well done patty. The positive ratings overall are because of the terrific service and the response I got from our server when I gave the burger feedback. It seems like this restaurant is trying hard and I would come back based on the way we were treated alone.
