    We came to watch UNC beat Duke in the Final Four in Coach K’s last game. That was an experience we’ll never forget. The service was excellent but the food was meh and over priced.

    Prior to the pandemic we used to come regularly at least once a month so it was nice to be back. However, it was not cool to be overcharged. Every item we ordered was $2 more on our bill than what was listed on the menu. The waiter handled it well, but we disappointed this happened at all.

    Bartender was not attentive at all. On Instagram it is advertised that there is a $2 drink special from 5-9 for ladies night including frozen margaritas and well drinks when asked about those drinks he seemed bothered and annoyed. (Although he did give me a strawberry margarita) which wasn’t part of the special but it is not clear and he didn’t explain it. When asking him for change he also had an attitude. Whomever was the Caucasian bartender on 02/12 after 5 PM.

    The food was wonderful but the service was poor. Although our drink order was taken quickly, it was quite a while before we actually got them. It took the waitress a long time before she came back to get our food order. Food was delivered quickly and was very good. The noise was so loud my husband and I could not hear each other talk.

    The food was moderate, but both service and ambiance were a bit of a let down. It’s a Southern BBQ joint and I was hoping to find a little country music, but instead loud pop music blared so loudly I had to shout to talk to my dinner partners. Food wasn’t anything special, but it was filling and fun.

    Four of us went after a Zumba cruise. After dancing for four hours, everyone was really hungry. We were seated immediately and given a large pitcher of room temperature water. We asked for ice water which we received quickly. We all ordered comfort food (fried chicken, catfish, ribs, pulled pork, collard greens, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and a pitcher of sangria). We were told that all of the food was made to order and that it would take some time. We were okay with that because we ordered a pitcher of sangria. When we received the food, it wasn't hot. It was room temperature at best. The chicken had too much breading and tasted like it was cooked with the fish. The mac & cheese was tasteless, the collard greens had too much spice and the sangria (despite drinking most of it myself) had no kick whatsoever! We all picked at our food and left wondering what we were going to eat when we got home. Overall, the staff was very nice but I don't think I'll be visiting again.

    We are fans of Brother Jimmys and have eaten at the MSG location several times so we decided to try the one in Murray Hill as we would be on the east side today. We waited over 20 minutes and no one came to our table to say they were busy, offer us water - nothing so we left. The entire time we were watching at no one visited any of the tables around us and we only saw two tables served during our stay. The walls were opened up and it was very cold - all the patrons were were wearing their coats. We will not go back to this location.

    We were staying in the Murry Hill neighborhood and found Brother Jimmy's to be just right for an all-American early dinner. We both had ribs which were cooked just right with the meat melting off the bones and the spices in the sauce excellent. The baked beans were as good as gandma makes! The service was efficient and friendly. If you love sports while eating TVs are all around.

I Came Here With My Best Friend and Her Boyfriend Because They Wanted To Treat Me, I Was Worried Though Because I recently Started My Pescetarian Journey So I Can Only Eat Seafood, Fruits n Veggies. No Meat. I Was Happily Satisfied Because They Had Catfish Tacos Which Was Soooooooo Delicious Especially Sinc3 It Was My first time Eating Catfish. The Beach Magarita I Drank Was Amazing As Well.

    I went here on a date night. My date and I made reservation days prior to attending. As we arrived someone greeted us and being seated was smooth. We were seated and went over the menu and ordered regular fried wings and drinks. My date doesn't eat pork. He started to feel extremely sick after eating the wings. He then asked the waiter if they cooked their chicken in pork grease. She didn't know and got a manager on site. The manager told us that it was pork around but wasn't sure if they cooked their meat in any pork grease. They were kind enough to take the wings off the bill but our night was ruin and had to sit in an emergency room for hours that night. Won't be back here in the near future. They need to list certain things.

    I have enjoyed Brother's Jimmy for years, they have to pay rent in the city so the price keeps going up like in must of the business ... to me a deterrent of going out to eat as much as I used to, after living in the city for 18 years, it is what it is ...
