Chose this place from reviews. Quest and chips were good, catfish was different, breaded and fried, pretty good. Coleslaw was white. Use green cabbage. White is so unappetizing. Mac and cheese was okay. Hubs had a burger with homemade chips that he enjoyed. Good service,...good prices.More

We decided to go to JJ's for the 2nd time because our first visit was great. That was not the case last night. Service was really off, I ordered a 2nd beer and it took me asking twice more for it. The Italian salad dressing...must have been watered down.. very light with little flavor. The fritters were good and my wife e enjoyed her hamburger, but she had to ask for the bacon and.mustard she had ordered. We will.go back and hope for better resultsMore

Average is a 4. The food was great, our family of 5 was not disappointed. If they have the Grilled Pork Sammy on menu or special, get it! You won't be disappointed! The chips are an awesome side to any meal! Go for the food...and be patient with service. We waited for 10 minutes until anyone came to our table, even though waiters were working all around us. It wasn't a busy night, there were only 3 tables when we arrived. It almost seemed none of the waiters knew who was suppose to take our table. Finally a waiter came and he never told us any specials, until I mentioned them from Facebook - check that for up to date specials and he and the other waiters did not seem imviting to new patrons. They were fine but from a local establishment you would hope they would be more welcoming. I do recommend going but do your research first, so you know what to expect before going in.More

We had a delicious meal and Stuart was an awesome server! I had the meatloaf with home made mash potatoes and the best brown gravy! My husband had their loaded potato soup (freshly warmed in a sauce pan) with a lovely presentation and I had...to stop him from licking the bowl. He also had a Nathan’s chili dog. Then we finished with a delicious piece of home made chocolate cake. And Stuart filled our drink cups, gave us lids and wished us a safe trip. I highly recommend JJ’s and would go back for sure.More

Ordered a hot ham and cheese sub with fries. Ham was sliced too thick and was cold. Fries were floppy. They don't serve a dill pickle with sandwiches. I suppose it's good enough if you are wanting the TV and bar but for local dining,...it was just OK..More

My wife and I searched reviews on Trip Advisor to look for a restaurant that had good reviews. JJ's did ALL of that and more. I ordered Gumbo and Chicken Wings. I have lived at quite a few places in US ( military brat) and...aside from NEW ORLEANS this is the ABSOLUTE BEST gumbo I have ever eaten. They really hit it out of the park with their food. The Chicken wings were also scrumptious. Perfectly cooked and delicious(even ordered a to go order). My wife ordered the Spaghetti Marianara and it was magnificent. You will not go wrong with this establishment. One of the best I've eaten at in awhile. Definitley worth a trip return and will be back.More

Loved this place! Burgers plus. Local hangout, with a good feel and friendly vibe. The fried green tomatoes were a hit and even the side salad is worth talking about! Homemade dressings etc. Good staff and service. We would return for sure!

My parents were in town, and we were looking for a good place to eat lunch. We looked up the reviews for this place, and the reviews were right. The food was fantastic. My dad and I got the special burger with pimento cheese. My...mom got the catfish sandwich. We all loved our food.More

My son suggested we eat here as this was my first time here. I got the club sandwich & fries and he got the catfish dinner. He loved his meal and my sandwich was good but not great. I definitely would return and the numerous...TVs were a plus as to any sports bar.More

Stopped in to watch the CFP Playoffs. Sat at the bar where we were well taken care of. Got to chat with some locals and had some great food. Much more upscale than your typical sports bar.
