....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

Lots of people that i know have eaten here when it was in it's former location. We decided to give it a try. The remodeling was really nice. The bar is like a sports bar. 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.

Dined here with a friend. My penne pasta with sausage, chicken, sun dried tomatoes and broccoli was delicious. The entree came with a salad of romaine, baby salad greens, red onion, tomatoes, and was very fresh. Tasty croutons too. The menu has enough variety to please and the prices are reasonable. The only complaint for me was the noise level.... More

I've been to J. Roos twice so far and have had great experiences both times. It's such a cozy place, and the wait staff is super friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The first time I went, I had the Hot Antipasto Appetizer as my meal so I could try more than 1 thing. The second time I went, I had Chicken... More

I've been a customer for over a decade. Pizza is always great. The new spot is awesome. Great job. Buffalo mac & cheese is a hit. Food is very consistent so that's a plus. I recommend the potato pizza with bacon and onion or the BBQ chicken. The dinners are excellent as well.

This restaurant is just the best around for families. The owners are always present and they do a great job getting to know their customers and giving back to the community. They have a wide variety of menu choices and a nice bar.
