Reviews for James Bar

This is a great spot for a light dinner and some drinks. They serve mostly sandwiches, burgers, and salads with some interesting house-made fry options. The menu was quite nice actually and I look forward to trying more of it. I got their special chocolate chip cookie dessert and it was incredible, if you're a fan of chocolate chip cookies you must go try this. Very reasonable prices.

Moscow Mule was almost 100% lime juice. Ordered truffle fries but received regular fries. Smoked gouda mac & cheese was bland. Server was nice enough, but terse and hurried. Did not come back to our table for almost a half an hour after serving our food, so we could not voice our concerns right away. Was a little condescending when I brought our issues up with (“next time us know earlier.”). Also, martinis are never cold enough.

I have had good dinners here but was disappointed tonight. The bison green chili burger was overcooked, dry and didn't have a ton of flavor. The truffle fries were also lackluster. They barely had any truffle flavor and needed salt.

The saving grace was the slider. It was full of flavor and properly cooked. I would recommend a couple sliders and a beer here if you don't want to be disappointed.
