The restaurant is nicely located by the river, one can either sit inside our outside. The staff is friendly and quick. The menu consists of standard dishes, something for everyone (also gluten-free pizza), but nothing exclusive. Overall a nice experience at agreeable cost.

The restaurant looks like a nice hangout place, that should have the food to go along with it. Personally I find the food to be uninspiring, making it just another average meal that you can find almost everywhere. In the summer it has a nice outdoor place next to the river.

We are proud of our outdoor area next to the river! Our menu consists of many traditional dishes as burgers, pasta, club and pizza. However our intention is to make it personal with homemade mayonnaise, dressing, sauces and first class ingredients such as plum tomatoes and burgers of 100% beef just added som salt and herbs. We continue to search... More

The first impression was nice. You had the feeling that you were back in the 50'ies in some American restaurant where jazz musicians were entertaining. The food was also American inspired, but I am sorry to say, Americans do it better.

Beer was totally flat, food was totally average and pricey. Nice interior and good service. Not quite bad enough to make you complain which is an almost perfect business plan.

Actually this place is a ok place, little bit over priced, but clean, friendly service and food is alright. To me JBG is made to feel like something special but it comes across as another fancy franchise, with not alot of character.

By the river:; Skienselva :0))), (Local dispute/joke) in a modern building on ground floor, very typical restaurant, with a "jazz"-profile. Lots of pictures of musicians and places. American style interior. We had lunch and the food was very good. the lady serving us extremely quick efficient and nice. The atmosphere average. The music is when the place is not full... More

Terrible and slow service, not humility even though half the table had finished their dishes 30 min prior to the second half of the table got their food. We were offered free beverage for the inconvenience, but that was not good enough. The food was tasty, but was not worth waiting for.

Been to Jonas B a couple of times. The service is slow and the menu is very pricy. The river-view is a plus and so is some of the seats. Not a place for budget-travelers. Can also be quite noisy.

I like to come on a sunny afternoon to sit outside and chat with friends over a glass of wine. But I know I shouldn't expect any service. If I do bother to order something to eat, I just order at the bar, because the waiters never come back. I do recommend the Jazz Burger if you do stop in.... More
