My husband and I visit here quite often. We are always greeted with smiles, delicious food and drinks made just right! The pizza is really good, wings are always cooked right and seasoned well! The chicken cesar salad and chicken parmesan dinner are my favorites. Usually very busy in there, but never impacts the service you will receive from the... More

Our visit left us with a bad taste in our mouths. The service was very poor and it seemed to take forever to get our food. Thank god we weren't on a lunch hour or we never would have been able to eat it. It was typical fare. Nothing to rave about. Others have raved about J Roos, but not... More

....and reasonable! Stopped by to try J.Roo's in North Haven and were pleasantly surprised. The new facility is jumping, both in the bar, at take-out and in the dining room. The staff was really friendly, especially our server, Jaime. The menu was vast and the prices were fair. Took two tries to get my martini dirty, but was worth the... More

The dining room was nicely done. We sat in a booth that was near the take out door. We heard the phone ringing the entire... More

The new place is great. If you've visited before and loved the food you'll be even happier now with the new modern restaurant. The wings are delicious served with celery stick and blue cheese dip. Pick your level of hotness. Many choices for eat in or take out. A town favorite.
