I've been here lots of times with friends when we want a good beer and whiskey selection and great bar food. If you want to come here on a weekend, make a reservation. This is a popular spot and you'll have to wait an hour for a table. They have a good variety of craft beers, lots of different whiskeys to choose from and you can even get a flight of whiskeys if you can't make up your mind. With all this alcohol that is offered, there have been a few times I may have had too many but the staff is always so friendly and helpful. Their customer service is great, they're knowledgeable on their menu and are accommodating when they can be. My favorite menu item is their shrimp and grits. I love their peach habanero sauce, it's spicy, so beware if you have a low tolerance for spicy foods. I don't like grits but their goat cheese grits are delicious. My husband loves their burgers. They are pretty delicious and unique. This is the place we go when we want a burger. I've also had their fries, gorgonzola chips and poutine. The fries and poutine were ok, I like my fries to have more potato and their fries are lacking in that department. The gorgonzola chips were surprisingly tasty.
I've gone here several times and overall have had really good beers. The beer selection is amazing, some of the best in JAX. They have a good variety of beer. I love hops and they didn't let me down. Every time I have gone, there are lots of different beers with hops. Their dark brews are pretty good too. They offer flights here which is nice if you want to try a variety of beers before ordering a pint. I like the atmosphere, it's very casual. I've never had trouble finding seating. I'm sure they can get pretty busy and tables could be hard to come by. There is no food served here but there is always a food truck in their parking lot. They have a parking lot to park your car. There is a separate water area at the end of the bar so no one has to wait for water. The service needs improvement. That's why this place is not getting full stars. The bar tenders have ignored me when it wasn't busy a few times. I've sat at the bar waiting to be helped and they just walk by me like I don't exist. When I had my credit card in hand to pay, they've walked on by without notice. Then it becomes my JOB to wave them down. Great beer, lacks friendly and helpful service.
My boyfriend is co-owner of this bar his mother (Judy) owns. Here is what I think. If you are up for shooting pool, watching TV, throwing darts, or maybe you just sit around enjoy the music, drink, and socializing this place is for you. Take note that this is more of an older generation biker bar. The perks are the drafts are a dollar all day, everyday. Judy's probably has one of the lowest prices for beer in Jacksonville. Great quality, great taste, cheaper price. There is an outside area you if you don't want to sit indoors, they serve food, shirts, hats, and the occasional nick nacks. They also throw benefits; you pay the amount requested for a ticket, you get to eat a great meal and 100% of all proceeds go to the person(s) the benefit was for. They have raffle drawlings, bike runs, and the newest feature is Movie night. Thursday nights different teams from other bars show up to compete in the dart league, and and Saturday nights are karaoke nights (no charge just enjoy yourself). 18+ are welcome, 21+ to drink. If you're looking for a good time with people in your generation, you might want to consider checking this place out.
