The J Bar – Davenport

The J Bar culinarians believe that preparing food that delights guests is something not to be taken lightly and is a task that should require effort and dedication. In other words, we Cook Tough. That means a chef driven, culinary experience that requires thinking outside the box. It’s edgy, adventurous, and visual. In other words, it’s tough, not easy. We are a gastro bar, with superior mixology, wine and craft beer selection. Brunch, lunch or dinner — at The J Bar, we always Cook Tough!
