Jerzy's Sports Pub (Gerri's Sports Pub) - Bar Rescue Update

In this week's episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and crew are in Margate, Florida to rescue Gerri's Sports Pub.  Gerri's Sports Pub is a dive bar and during recon the team thinks its way to dirty even for a dive bar.  The bar allows smoking and everything in the bar is stained yellow from the smoke.  Despite being a sports bar, the TV's for showing games are way too small.  The bar is supposedly losing $2,000 a month and in danger of closing before it can be passed down to family.

During the Bar Rescue makeover, Jon Taffer decided to slightly change the name of Gerri's Sports Pub to Jerzy's Sports Pub, but it seems they still use the name Gerri's Sports Pub. Let's take a look at some information, reviews, and updates for Gerri's Sports Pub since Bar Rescue came and made all of the changes to the bar (All reviews are post-Bar Rescue):

Positive Reviews:
  • "I stop in from time to time every one is always friendly and fun. Never had a problem going alone!!"

Negative Reviews:
  • "Disgusting because of Brenda leatherwood this lady go every morning to get Drugs, Gerris is a hiding spot and I'm tired of it, I don't care how much money this woman have they should not have her in front of Gerris buying for drug every morning."
*Reviews from Google

Other News and Links:
  • The Bar Rescue for Gerri's Sports Pub happened in March 2024.
  • Here is a preview video of the episode from the Bar Rescue YouTube page.
  • Pretty much the only mention of Jerzy's Pub is from their most recent restaurant inspection, which can be found here. Also, Jerzy's Sport Pub is listed as the name for that address on Bizapedia.
  • I called the bar and they answered the phone as "Gerri's," so they still use Gerri's as the name.
  • Here is the Gerri's Sports Pub Facebook page (which hasn't posted since 2021). They do not have a website.
  • The bar closes at either 2am or 4am depending on the day of the week.
  • Someone who runs a karaoke business was advertising their event at Jerzy's Sports Pub shortly after the Bar Rescue makeover and said the bar now had no smoking inside. With not many reviews, it is hard to see if they kept that change.
  • Here are the reviews for Gerri's Sports Pub from Yelp and Google.  There were only a couple reviews from after the makeover to when the episode aired.
  • In 2021, someone was arrested for selling drugs at Gerri's Sports Pub and in 2023 someone was arrested for possession of a firearm during a fight at the bar.


Jon Taffer decided to slightly change the name of Gerri's Sports Pub to Jerzy's Sports Pub, but it seems the bar still uses the name Gerri's.  The bar doesn't really have an online presence and there aren't really many reviews to see how the bar is doing.  The bar answers the phone as "Gerri's" so they still use their name from before the makeover despite some of the paperwork now saying Jerzy's.  Bar Rescue made the bar non-smoking and it said at the end of the episode that they kept it non-smoking.. I will keep an eye on this one as more information becomes available and can update this post if there is anything important.
