I tend bar at Pineapple Jacks.. I realise it's not perfect, however, when is a business of this nature "perfect". What I can tell you, which is the same as I tell all of my family and friends, is that Pineapple Jacks is by far the most fun place I've worked for. The atmosphere is what you make of it. There's everything for everyone. We have Three pool tables, seven dart boards, a jukebox, lotto machines and quickdraw, dozens of high-def tv's,, a DJ, a dance floor, and a concert hall where we play the best bands Rochester has to offer...hell, we even have a smoking lounge. Not to mention the very extensive high-end liquor selection, and an even more extensive shelf selection. We have an awesome lineup at the bar, with very knowledgeable bartenders (tooting our horn), and quick service.. especially considering the size of the bar (it never seems to end :P )For what it's worth, I put in around 30 hours a week working only weekends.. I've seen it all and experienced it all. Out of other well established bars/resurants I've worked at, I have to say that Pineapple Jacks is the first one where it felt like a family. And, if your bartenders are having fun, then you know it's going to be a good time!

Several of my friends and I stopped by Pineapple Jack's on a Sunday afternoon. I went up to the bar to place an order and was refused service by a bartender named "Gina". I asked her what the problem was, she stated that she would not serve us solely based on the fact that we were in the company of a certain patron of Pineapple Jack's. I was able to get my order taken care of by another bartender...Not for nothing, but this is no way to generate business. If an EMPLOYEE has a personal issue with a PATRON, you don't refuse to serve people because they are in close proximity to someone you have a "gripe" with. I found this extremely childish on the bartender's part, and Very poor for business. Over all Pineapple Jack's is a fine establishment, It's just a shame they put up with this "blemish"...
This is not a fancy place but the food is great. You can get a dog with every condiment you can think of. They have their own version of a garbage plate called the "Junk Yard Dog" and in addition to fries and option wings they also have tatter tots which you can get with their own hot sauce. Oh yea, the buns are not your everyday dog bun, it's as good as the dogs. I work near Dog Town and there is one really bad thing about this place, the smell draws you in like some form of magnetism.
The service was speedy, but my two cheeseburger plates "to go", had No napkins, No utensils, No bread, and the homefries were dry as hell (I had to drown everything in ketchup). Oh yeah, and there was none of that either; ketchup I mean. I ordered meat hot sauce and chopped onions, but it only covered the burgers themselves, instead of the whole thing...weird! In the future I'm sticking with Stevie T's down the road.
The service is great! Last week i was there with oot company. My guests had reubins with sweet pot fries. I mistakenly had a reubin club. ( my mistake) rhere was no yummy dressing on it. It was plain and i was disappointed.. My suggestion would be to point out to patrons the difference between the two. Otherwise i love Jines. Thankyou for being there.
This is something completely different than anything we have in the area. The burgers are so hot and made to order, I LOVE THAT plus add fresh veggies that are perfectly crisp is even better! also liked how they don't have the standard coke/pepsi they use pure cane sugar drinks and they are delicious and different. Deff worth a visit!!
My wife and I have been coming here for over 10 years and its still just as good. They have the best soup in town. Jines has some the most loyal customers in the area, which is why they've been in business so long. My wife loves the "cozy" ambiance, its great for a quick bite or a date night.
Chicken fingers were over cooked, the bartender had no idea they were even on the menu, we paid 5 bucks cover for an awesome band. TARAN However their were. Like 5 seats and 2 tables to accommodate. . Last but not least. The beer wasn't cold. But the bottle was. Needless to say . We won't be back
I had my first garbage plate here a year ago and it was truly an experience. I could not eat anything for the next two days but it was well worth it. The characters you'll find here are great. The food is great, not much more you could want. Just bring your appetite and you'll be set.
Now that its finally springtime in Rochester Jines is a part of my weekly routine. On the first nice day of the year I walked to Jines and got their egg panini which was one of the best things I've ever eaten. I went back the next day to get it again! Jines is just amazing.
