There is only one table inside. All others sit at the bar or outside. The selection of beer is absolutely overwhelming. As a matter of fact, the regulars keep cards with tasting notes behind the bar in a file for reference. The only food is burgers and fries. I enjoyed it, but probably will not return. I like more seating... More

Food was amazing, service quick and friendly, and truly unique menu! Only negative was music a little loud, seats were uncomfortable, and very small space.

A nice mix of burgers and Wagyu beef to boot. I had a Jalapeño Popper burger and it was excellent.

Crinkle cut fries, craft... More

This is a very small bar/restaurant with outdoor seating available if the weather is good. Loved the bar area décor, service and beer selection.

Burgers were pretty good, but seating not so great if you're looking for a sit down place. Inside is basically just a bar but there is ample seating outdoors. Bathroom was nice and clean so that was a plus. Huge beer selection and interesting ones at that.

This is a go to place if in Harrisonburg! This trendy bar/ restaurant is located in town and about a mile away from JMU University. The burgers are made to order and are the most creative burgers I have ever eaten! This is a well known place to locals and the JMU students. I had the Greg Brady burger which... More

The food we had was fine, but our service wasn't what I would call superb, but she was friendly. Parking wasn't very handy, in fact the restaurant wasn't very easy to find.

Go to Jack Brown's. Order Up and have it delivered. This is a place to get a diner burger amp' d. I love the cream cheese and pickled jalapeños. Cowboy burger is insanely good, too. No lettuce and tomato here... I love those, don't need them here. Freaking amazing

Excellent burgers and cold beer. A fun relaxed atmosphere. Could be very busy when JMU is in session.

Amazing service, amazing food, they won't disappoint! Huge beer selection compared to most joints. Bar is a bit small, but this is the original location that started it all. Plus they are open late.
