  1. You should visit Jerry’s sports bar on Atlantic Boulevard. My family and I were there yesterday and after an hour long wait for our food a LIVE ROACH crawled out of my food. The wait staff hardly responded and when they did neither an apology or an offer to remove the food promptly were offered. Categorically the worst experience of my life. Thankfully my child or husband had eaten any of their food. I had already consumed a french fry. This is disgusting and they should be monitored closely.
