Ordered some milkshakes with a couple mates and the women who took our order was very rude and condescending

Brilliant food and tons of it! You definitely won't leave feeling hungry. Milkshakes are amazing and one between 2 is plenty. Huge portions and brilliant atmosphere - feels like you're in a real American diner. Service is good, staff are friendly, would certainly recommend!

Not sure about the negative reviews here as have only had good meals here both in the evening and for breakfast and would definitely return when in the area - would be nice if they stayed open later in the evening though

Being an American living in the UK, I have been to many "American" themed restaurants- none of which were good. JB's was a wonderful surprise! Good food- lots of choices, and in our group of 5 - everyone got something different. Everyone loved their food! The only comment was on the fish and chips - it was not traditional battered... More

Easter Sunday, was busy as per in Brighton...having been to JB's before I thought my nephews would have to experience this place. A real family atmosphere and great place to take kids young or old! Everything looks amazing from the onion rings(huge) to the milk shakes, everything you'd expect from an American diner. Reasonably priced and very efficient waiting staff,... More

went here for lunch before seeing The Millionaire Dollar Quartet show at the Theatre Royal. The service was great, really friendly and efficient. The food was lovely and didn't have to wait long for it. The atmosphere in here was brilliant and puts other American themed diners in the shade. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here and wish there was a... More

Visit on a Saturday night so the place was packed, in terms of the service and staff they were really good despite how busy it was and us having to wait to be seated. However we were unimpressed with the food - my steak looked great and was cooked as I asked but upon tasting was very bland and quite... More

One of the better American style food restaurants that I've been too. My girlfriend and i both ordered The King Burger which was good and also a nice size. Also ordered potato skins to start off with and they were just as good. Great food. Great value. The waitresses are stunning too. Worth visiting.

Thank John S
