Service and food

Went to your steakhouse Saturday in islip to celebrate a friends birthday i normally go to the one in calverton but he lives in islip so this was the one. Upon arrival the seating was quick and courteous and the food as always was delicious the specials were great and we all had a great time especially that a lot of guys were veterans and former law enforcement but the reason i am taking the time to write is because of a waitress named alexca she was very professional and polite her concern about how we were and her prompt detail to our comfort was exceptional she showed concern over our every need and focused on making sure our orders were correct. I spoke to her manager mr devon and told him my comments he also was a gentleman but i told him i wished this young lady could always be our waitress and i hope she gets recognized for her work. If i was a undercover boss she would be the manager or more than a waitress. Thank you and keep up the great work. As a law enforcement supervisor i believe in giving recognition and awards when due. Thank you again

Started off with a negative when we were told to wait outside until the rest of our party arrived - NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING. Tell people to feel free to sit at the bar. Our server, Alexa, had a smile as big as the sun. Our table asked lots of questions and Alexa answered all questions. One of our drinks came out with no liquor in it. Prime rib was supposed to be rare and came out medium. She didn't blink an eye, took care of everything, and never forgot to smile and couldn't apologize enough. You are a gem, Alexa. If we do decide to come back it will be because of our experience with you. Thanks again for everything Alexa.

Great deal Good meal

I ate in the bar, the bartender ' Grace' & busboy Jose Rivas were on top of things from the get go, doing their work in a professional, friendly, and polite manner, even the manager stopped by twice. I had lobster bisque and the 16 oz. marinated rib eye with garlic mashed potatoes. The steak was cooked medium rare, just like l wanted, and the potatoes had plenty of garlic. I also had a Hofbrau-Hefe Weizen beer ( on the sweetish side as l asked for) came in a nice sized mug. My complaints; the bisque had fake fish in it, if you ain't gonna use real lobster,leave it plain, and they could've been more generous with the sherry. The mashed potatoe serving was not generous, more would've been better. And while there was J & Rs sauce and A-1 sauce they didn't have Worstershire sauce, which is what l like on my steak. Minor complaints, the meal was good, the price reasonable and l'll go back, next time for the pot roast.

Pleasant Affordable Steak house

Look, this isn't a pretentious Ala Carte Steak house. It is however a unique, no frills, great dining experience at a reasonable price point. We (2 top) both enjoyed the 4 course dinner and let me tell you, the portions are great! Excellent Onion Soup. Ample appetizers were followed by a huge lobster tail, filet entrée and cowboy steak with a great fluffy piece of cheese cake! J&R offers up a no frills, casual dining experience that will definitely enjoy again. I am looking forward to having lunch.

Great meal

The Wife and I ate at J&R,s this past week and we had The pork chops that were to die for, how they make them so tender and tasty is a secret to me. I recommend eating at J&R anytime meals are good service was excellent.

Delicious as always. The prime rib was cooked to perfection.
And you can’t beat the price.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Wanted a Prime Rob

After not dining out for months myself and an old colleague met at J&Rs for lunch at 12:30 today. I ordered the Prime Rib lunch special and asked for an end cut. It came and was perfect in appearance, tenderness and taste, I could not have gotten better anywhere for any price. Thank you for makin my first dining out experience for months a perfect one.
