We were here as a family and were comfortable but I could also see a young couple coming here for a romantic night out. We were sat in a nice large booth, which was plenty big enough for our party of five. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful. We had two celiacs at the table so that can often be tough, but the waitress was able to answer all of our questions. The food was amazing, everyone loved everything they ordered. The kids also got dessert which they loved, too. Overall it was an amazing dinner and we will definitely be returning the next time we are in the area.

Our reservation was a last minute outing after arrival at our B&B (Apple Binn Inn Willow Street, PA). Restaurant was exceptionally attentive to Covid safety practices - limited time at table, in car waiting until table was ready, reservation times fixed and spaced in time (15 minutes). Meals was outstanding (steak and salmon) and dessert options will meet the most discerning diner desire.

First time here and this may be my new favorite place to relax with a very good meal and friends. It is dark and classy but relaxed, without being Lancaster snobby as some other higher end establishments in the area. Think Saturday causal date night place. The staff are very attentive and friendly, also the manager will come around to see if everything is ok, which I very much appreciate. From the top down this is a great place, please don't change a thing! (I would add a few more main dishes if possible.)

Hunter, we are so happy to hear that this was your 1st visit to JBD's & that we didn't disappoint. Expect things to be great each & every time you walk through our doors. When covid hit, we did take off about 5 entrees so we could execute better with limited staffing. Hopefully, as time goes on we will bring some of those items back. We look forward to serving you again soon. Sincerely, Pete DiCarlo. Director of Operations/Owner.

For a chain restaurant this a classier place to eat.I just had a burger, cooked to perfection. My friend had a salad which she also loved. We have been here several time since !

Thanks for the very kind review & your continued patronage. We look forward to serving you again in the future and even though we are technically a "chain" because we have more than 1 location, we are truly a local family restaurant started out of the Reading PA area. We look forward to serving you again soon. Sincerely, Pete DiCarlo. Director of Operations/Owner.

Had a very good filet mignon and baked potato. Did not have to wait long, side salad was fresh. Staff was great. I loved the darker wood furniture, lower lighting, cozy atmosphere. A very nice place with good food, even though it’s more or less in a mall.
