    Love it. Great burgers. Chili is a must have.

    Better than others, still not that good

    Another overrated burger spot I have hit in the last week. I like the cottage fries but in general this is another spot living off reputation. Not cheap and usually crowded. Tiny beers too. Avoid.

    Yummy Burger :)

    Read the reviews and went down there for some quick bite. There was a bit of wait but it was totally worth it. I had some chili which was good and chef's salad was huge (which will be now dinner). The burger was the main reason why my bf and I picked this place and it was totally yummy. Juicy and perfectly seasoned. It looks little small but it totally filled us up. Service was little slow but it's probably because the place was so crowded. I would definitely go back for burgers again. Awesome neighborhood find :)

    Excellent Food/OK drink

    Great chili, recommended as a starter. Awesome burgers. Chicken salad very good as well. Could use an upgrade of their beer glasses to pints instead of the 8.5 oz minis they use.

    Poor service!

    Went to dinner here on the 4th of July. After being yelled at by the waitress because only 5 people of our party of 6 were seated (we were never told by the host that only complete parties were seated, and HE sat us with 5 people), she demanded that we order our entrees after our salads were delivered. I have never experienced such rude service at a restaurant in the city. After asking for the manager to complain, the host attempted to play off that he was the manager and yell at us as well because our entire party was not seated. I will never return to JG Melon's .

    Pretty Delish

    Pretty damn delicious burger. Worth the trek to the upper east side. I'm not a chili person but after trying my boyfriend's chili I now might be - it was really very very good. Clientele is extremely yuppie / preppyish so I felt strangely under-dressed in an environment that seemed to have a divey pub feel to it. Value is pretty decent for NY. Only thing I wish they would expand on is their beer selection.
