The food is amazing from the appetizers which we have had the onion rings that are the best!!! The mushroom caps are delicious and the chicken livers are one of my favorites. One of the best salads with homemade croutons and the house dressing. I usually always get the battered fried lobster and it is out of this world!! Ashley makes a awesome dirty Greygoose martini. I have never had a bad meal there and the service is remarkable. We go back every chance we get!!!

A great atmosphere, super friendly service and some brilliant choices on the menu. The onion rings are the best I've ever had (where the onion didn't fall out for a change) and it was hard to make a decision with so many good appetizers in particular. The Lobster bisque soup was tremendous and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Stopped in at J Bruners for a late dinner on our way back from a week-long road trip. We didn’t have reservations, but I guess because it was late in the evening, we were able to be seated right away. The decor was warm and romantic, this would be a perfect spot for anniversaries, birthdays or any other sort of special occasion dinner. The service was great, our server stated she had been with J Bruners for 20 years! The ribeye meal I enjoyed was cooked to perfection and very very delicious! It’s worth noting to state the salad was extremely good... it was so fresh tasting; unlike the chemical laced bagged salad taste I normally experience in restaurants. The portion sizes were more than generous, so much so I was unable to finish my steak. For a last minute decision and just dropping in, I found our dining experience at J Bruners to be very enjoyable and will definitely make my way back there next time we are in the area! Highly recommend!
