This place deserves no stars at all it took a life time for my husband and I to get our food we got our drinks all the way in the begging and by the time our food got there we were half way done with them also the meal wasn't anything big we thought it would be for the amount of time we waited, furthermore the waiter was no where to be found most of the time my burger was not well done like I wanted it my husbands mac & cheese was stale. We were so unsatisfied -_______-

My cousin brought me here last summer after I moved to NYC from Florida. They were playing country music and I was instantly reminded of home! Whenever I'm craving some fried, southern food I head there.

I heard a lot about Brother Jimmy's before I tried it recently. I heard the service was terrible and the atmosphere was a little like a frat house. I ended up sitting at the bar to try their ribs so I really can't comment on the waitstaff. The bartender was very friendly and made some great drinks. The ribs were also above average for the city but the sides were nothing earth-shattering. I know Brother Jimmy's makes a lot of people's Top Ten List for BBQ joints in the city and it would make mine as well for the ribs but it's hard to give it a complete review since I was only there once and ate at the bar. I would go back to try their pulled pork and brisket since the atmosphere was not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be. It's a fun place with good ribs.

This is a fun place to hand out with friends and get some good food. Stay at the bar or hang out at the tables. The prices aren't bad and the best table is the big one by the front window.

Perfect place to meet after work for drinks!!! Fun, casual atmosphere ~ decent service, good appetizers to go along with some good brew. Great deals during the week for beer and specialty drinks.

I don't want to speak for the whole staff, because there are a few nice bartenders. But there is a new waitress that was HORRIBLY rude to myself and my friends for no apparent reason. I don't reccommend going there on Thursday nights.

I really like this restaurant but the other day I went there for my daughter's 18th birthday and everything was fine until a roach that was crawling on the wall near our table fell on the table and I had to kill it. At that point my appetite was gone and all I wanted to do was leave. Normally, the food is great and the staff is very nice and friendly but I just guess this was not a good day and it was a Sunday. The prices are good and reasonable and I love their hush puppies with the maple butter and the collard greens are great. All in all Brother Jimmy's is a great place to eat but this past Sunday it turnout bad.

I was warned about the service before I went in, so I knew it would be slow, even though it wasn't that full for a Friday evening in the back room. We did have to wait a long time, but the food was good (though I like Famous Dave's BBQ Sauce on Long Island better). But, when we asked for the check, we were charged $66 - and all the two of us had had was an $8.50 sandwich and $3 PBR each, and shared a slice of pie! So that obviously wasn't right (it was another table's receipt, with a $25 pitcher of beer and other stuff), and eventually we were able to catch the waitress's attention to bring us the right check, though it took forever. When she finally did bring it, it then had a $2.50 Coke on it that we didn't order, but we decided to pay for it to hold onto our sanity and not wait another eternity for her to take it off. If you're already in the area and like BBQ, sure, go for the food, but be prepared to wait forever, even if it's not that busy, and check your receipts!

I go to the NYSC across the street from Jimmy's and order take out one day. I ordered the bbq sampler where i chose 3 types of ribs and 2 sides (fire fries and mac and cheese) I got the artichoke dip as well. I live 30-40 mins away on the subway. The food was eaten 2 hrs later and it was still good. The ribs were moist and juicy, the artichoke dip was great, the mac and cheese was creamy, but the fire fries were soggy probably because of the down time. I recommend this place if you live or travel around there. I went when the place was empty around 4ish in the afternoon. The food took 20 mins but thats a good thing when it comes to bbq.

I turned just 21 last Wednesday and my uncle surprised me with the most awesome birthday present. A night at BROTHER JIMMY'S!!!

FIrst, we took advantage of the great specials on Natural Light, only $1 a can. After we got into "partying mood" we ordered the all-you-can buffet. There were so many neat choices, you get 3 to choose from, but I went with 3 orders of meat-loaf. CRAZY RIGHT???!!! I love that stuff, I could have eaten 10 orders.

The waitress were really funny and then kept blowing whistles in my face when my uncle ordered the fish-bowl drink. My uncle is a great guy, and I owe him everything for introducing me to my new favorite restaurant. It's too bad he wasn't there to help me home when I woke up in an alley with no pants on.

I'm not from the South, I'm even not from the States. So I can't really tell how a southern bar would look like. Anyway, I went to the Brother Jimmy's Bait Shack in the Upper East Side last year when I was doing a city trip to NYC. Together with a friend who lives in the city, we finished our night in this nice bar. The staff was very funny and friendly. Even the other cusommers were cool and friendly. But the best was the Trash Can "Fish Bowl" ;). We had a lot of fun with that special offer. I had a really great night. Next time I'm in New York I defitinely will visit the bar again.

Pos: staff, customers
Neg: to far from where I live
recommended: Trash Can Pvnch

As a Southern transplant now living in New York, I'm a huge HUGE fan of the delectable take out at this UES gem. Their mac and chesse is super tasty and the corn bread keeps you coming back from more. I personally recommend the hot or bbq wings. Their take-out service is top knotch-- always very nicely packed with seperate containers and all utensils, etc you need to enjoy your meal. I've never been in to the Bait Shack, but you should definitely think of them for take-out. Absolutely A+.

I liked the food, but this was a sports bar. I didn't like the atmosphere at all.
The waitress was nice, but other customers were loud, music was country loud and customers were drunk.....oh the drinks were great.

Its not a bad place but there better ones. The foods okay but certainly not the the best barbeque I 've had. It definitely has a frat party feel to it which may be okay if your single and in your early 20s. I've been their several times (friends who live a block a way insist) and I never been impressed.

If you wanna see grown 35+ year old men acting like college boys, you should come here on the weekend. This place is really noisy and run down. But that's the selling point. Food is greasy, will give you a heart attack, but oh so good. Definitely dont go on the weekend afternoon, unless youre into meat market.

PROS: football snacks
CONS: loud - cramped - nothing to write home about

I am from the South and I know good soul food. The barbecue is pretty good (albeit drastically overpriced), but the rest of the food is lackluster. The atmosphere is revolting --- Basically a barn with junk hung on the walls. It's impossible to enjoy oneself because of all the heavily intoxicated b+t people trying to get picked up. The music is decade nostalgic and the food doesn't quite fill one's need for soul food. Plus, it's way overpriced.

Hit this place on Mondays for $15 all you can eat ribs and wings. It is so yummmmy for the price and you get beers too.
I love the Hush Puppies for an appetizer- only bad food is the nachos bc they are extremely soggy.

I always end my night at one of the three Brother Jimmy's. They have a great scene. The Fish Bowls are dangerous. But great time.
I went last night for Monday Night Football. Big Mistake. They were not prepared and the WORST waitress was in charge of our table. She completely forgot about us. We had to order our pitcher 3 times and she still never brought. Very frustrating. Who can eat wings without cold beer? Good over to 2nd Ave and try out Blondies! Great wings

My friends & I have been bouncing back & forth between this Brother Jimmy's and the one at 80th & Amsterdam for well over 5 years now. We never miss a Birthday, Thanksgiving Eve, Promotion, or going there for no reason at all. Last year we celebrated New Year's Eve there and it was our best New Year's yet! Go here if you enjoy a party atmosphere with loud music, exciting people, great BBQ food, and you have a laid back personality with a bit of a wild side too. I highly recommend indulging in a fish bowl just once at Brother Jimmy's...I guarantee you'll go back for more.

If you're from the south then this has to be a stop on your trip. This place has sweet tea! Wow! Good sweet tea at that. Wednesday night is Southern Appreciation Day, 25% off your bill with a valid southern I.D. The food is great - southern cuisine. It is very busy so get there early. The busier, the louder, and it tends to get very loud in here. If you want a quiet dinner this probably isn't the place to go, but if you want good Southern cuisine, at a reasonable price stop by Brother Jimmy's and soak up the south. Loads of UNC and other ACC memorabilia on the walls too!

I went recently with a friend for dinner and a drink. It is quite loud, but I'm going to chalk that up to the annoying man who was practially sitting on our table for half of the meal. The food was really good, my only complaint was that the portions were too big. My friend and I shared corn fritters (YUM!) and then I got a an appetizer or BBQ rib tips. Was I surprised when it came out! Huge portion. But it was very tasty! I did feel like I was at Hooters, but whatever, it's Friday and the drinks were coming, so who cares?

Thank God good BBQ exists in NY. No babybacks here! Great pork ribs, pork shoulder, and tasty side dishes. They fall into the NY trap of serving the typical SW fare, but steer clear of all that and eat up some BBQ and southern favorites with no frills. The service is good but all the people in the place could slow them down a bit, be patient; enjoy the music, the game, and that cold brew in your hand, you are in for something great!

I love this joint! I loved my pull pork sandwish, I loved my shrimp po boy, I loved the variety. If you don't mind the fat, this is the place to be. However, make sure you are not too hungry when you get there because it takes a while for the kitchen to make your dishes.

The food here is very inconsistent and has become worse over time, which is too bad for anyone that likes Southern cuisine. My boyfriend and I felt ill all night so beware. The atmosphere is a cross between Hooters and a frat party. The place is too loud and the tv volume slowy creeps up and up all night.

This place is the ideal setting for heavy beer drinking, barbecue feasting, and more heavy beer drinking. The barbecue falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. The service needs a little work, but overall it's worth a look.

Brother Jimmy's is the best bar in NYC. I have never had a bad time here, never NOT had a conversation with a total stranger, never NOT met someone new. If you're going for the food, TRY THE MAC AND CHEESE! I can't stress that enough. Good food and great waitstaff. They're a great bunch of girls (and darn cute too!). The bartenders are always on the ball and seem to be having fun while making sure everyone gets a drink. Great music too...Fun mix of eras and songs! I can't say enough about Brother Jimmy's. I don't care for the other two locations very much, but this one is great. Get a fishbowl...You'll meet more people than you want to!

Pros: Waitresses, Macaroni & Cheese, Fishbowls

Cons: Far from my apartment

A good place to go for a casual atmosphere. Get the fishbowl drink if you're with a big group. Also a great place to eat during the week.

good place to hang out with buddies over beer and a football game, enjoy their souvenier cocktail drinks in volcano jugs, they can really hit you! potatoes, ribs, wings, caesar salad, all good for the bar food category, nice bartenders too for the boys viewing pleasures! reasonable...Always crowded, every day of the week!

OK, so everything is fried, covered in cheese, stewed with bacon fat, or some version of pork. So what? Once in a while you need to let loose and eat some down-home barbecue. Hey, at least the barbecue sauce isn't too fattening.

With a group of rowdy Brits and Texans, we were made to feel right at home in Brother Jimmy's recently, even when we opted for a giant demon punch with 12 straws. Shirts were unbuttoned, dancing (perfect music, guys!) began and all the while the staff (yummy) remained accomodating and even contributed to a great Saturday night out.

Brother Jimmy's is one of the Best Bar-B-Que places to go in the city, the atmosphere is a little trashy so if you are looking to impress a date this is NOT the place to go! The bar is a lot of fun on it's own, you never know what celebrity couple will show up or who you will run into.......Overall the food is CHEAP & GOOD..........

Pros: inexpensive, fun, good music

Cons: crowed

Jimmy's has excellent ribs and fixins and is great place to drink and meet people. But besides the fact it does have TVs tuned to sports, calling it a sports bar- I don't see it.

But the BBQ is well worth it and the hook-up quotatient is high.

Quite simply, the barbecue (and sauce) is great. Coming from someone who has been eating barbecue in the south for years, I'm never disappointed in the food. It's always tasty, well prepared, and affordably priced. They are very accommodating for large groups, and the "Swamp Water" especially adds to the fun experience. With good frineds, good food and a great staff, you are bound to enjoy yourself.
