I love this place and the location is amazing. The only thing we dont like is sometimes they are short on staff and its hard to get good service

We stopped in here after going to a restaurant that was sub par not knowing what to expect. I was basically a bar with bar food and a handful of people in there. My family each ordered different type of food (wrap,chicken strips, burger and wings. Every one was very happy with the food and service. We will go back... More

My wife and I stopped in for a quick lunch and were pretty happy with out meal. We both ordered the Juicy Lucy and it was quite good although not cooked enough for either of us. The menu did state they couldn't do well done but mine was at best medium and my wifes was medium.

I have been going here on and off for 8 years. The place has seemed to have changed hands. In early 2015 they had great food and great deals. The last 3 trips in late 2015 the food was disgusting! The nachos were expensive and ANYONE could make these at home and do much better. We spend 45 bucks on... More

Restaurant has new name JC's. Menu is bigger, but food was better when it was J Cousineau's. And, WOW--are the prices MUCH BIGGER! $8 for a mug of craft Beer and $5 for a bottle. Only reason we went there was a Groupon for $30. Maple Grove has many other places to that have better prices and better food.

There are cheap beers at all times. $4 for big mugs, $3 for pints. The apps are below average. I tried boneless wings, potato skins and cheese curds and at least two came straight out of a bag from the freezer. Not worth it. Great spot for karaoke on a Saturday, you get to sing a lot. The waitress was... More

Solid choice for sports bar atmosphere and food...best place for pull tabs in the cities. Kick in $20/person and have at it.

This i pretty much a sports bar with sports bar type of food. The service was good and prices okay. Not a place to go for a quiet or romantic dinner. Fun place to go with friends for a drink and bar food.

We have been coming here after work late night weekly for the past few months. We enjoy playing the buzztime trivia on the tv. The drinks are about average and the food is priced about what you would expect. Everything is delivered hot and usually correct. We have had several excellent waitresses and a couple of horrible ones. One waitress... More

Cabin feaver with our first snow storm is the only reason we walked over for happy hour. Happy hour drinks are weak but priced right. The food as always still sucks. Service this time was actually good. The waitress told us the place changed hands in February of this year and is now called JC's although exterior signage hasn't changed... More
