Too expensive – I was at Jack Russell's with some friends for a football game, I have to admit the place looks nice but it was def. not worth the price. We had some food and beers but wow was i shocked with those ridiculous prices and tip already added on our bill. Now i now why they call it jack russells, cause they are as sneaky as the dogs.
AS RUDE AS YOU CAN GET – I went to Brady's to play a game of pool but they were having some party their so the pool table was covered with food. My next option was Jack Russells so I headed their and played a couple games and had a few beers. First of all their pool tables s*ck along with those sticks they supply and on top of that they ask for $2.00 a game. Irrelevant I continued to play and have a good time. I went home that night and realized the next morning I forgot my card, so my girl and I head back the next day to settle the bill and maybe even grab a drink. The bar tender was not able to find my card so nicely asks the owner who screams WHAT in her face with his beer in his right hand and a fake rolex in the left, haha. Anyhow he goes to get my card and rudely said it was declined, He was so rude both my girlfriend, me and not to forget his friend were all in shock. I said dont worry we are going to settle the bill, I obviously was their because i wanted to pay and get my card. Anyhow I paid my bill and told him he was very rude. I sincerely hope he is the owner otherwise I would suggest the owner considers looking for the tall american guy with the fake rolex. all this for $34, nice job as*hol*. HIGHLY RECCOMEND BRADY'S BAR, great staff, nice owner & good people.
Great sports bar – Jack Russells is a great place to grab a drink and watch a game. They have telivision sets all over including mini one;s right at the bar directly in front of you. I highly reccomment this place to anyone who is looking for a nice bar to watch some games with friends.
Chill Place – Cool music nice staff and TONS OF SPACE. IT's also located in a prime spot which is on the upper east side on 2nd ave. So bar hopping is easy.
Scary Atmosphere – The manager is an absolute maniac... he screams at the bartenders and dj like nobodies business.. My friends and I were horrified!! Overall the place was OK, but I'm not sure I wanna be in that scene again! Dollar mugs have their appeal but that only goes so far..
Cool Spot! – I had a nice time here. Great atmosphere, cool staff, cooler drinks. I will refer my friends to this bar/lounge. Go sometime and lounge or hang with friends for a birthday party or whatever!
Ultimate Sports bar – I'm from Pennsylvania and just moved here after college last year. i LOVE this bar!
BEER ROCKETS are the best thing ever!! I've never seen these before but it's like two pitchers in this huge tower thing. AND you have tvs everywhere and in your booth too. I was sitting in the middle of the bar last night and they even get Phillys games. awesome. The girls are really cool that work there and you can ask them to put different games on and they'll do it. it gets kinda crowded for big games and they won't take reservations so get there early, especially if you want a booth. my favorite bar in the neighborhood by far.
Great Food, 50/50 shot at good service – I moved to the area a few months back & have just started coming to Jack Russell's. I had two very different experiences in the same week. I was there on a Tuesday night, it was a quiet crowd & the service was great! The bartender was super friendly & stayed on top of my drinks very well. I then returned on Friday night to a busier bar, and disappointing service. The bartenders acted as if i was bothering them by asking for my drinks repeatedly. But everytime I have been there, the food has been great & i have had a great time.
always a good time – I love this bar! it's in my neighborhood, and i've been coming here since i moved to the ues. great food, good selection of beers on draft, n the girls on staff are friendly n actually kno about sports, which is cool. I'm from the midwest n i always bring my friends when they're in b/c the bartenders will find your game for you-tons of tvs! the pitchers n some shots are a little overpriced, but not a big deal if you come in with a group. Definitely recommend it
Best sports bar on upper east – I went here for the yanks-sox game saturday and it was awesome. The bartenders are smokin and friendly. There are t.v.'s everywhere so there isn't a bad spot. I had a burger which was awesome. I just moved to the upper east and feel like Jack Russel's will be home base while I'm here. I'm looking forward to football season to be able to watch all the games.
