We took a winter drive up to Twilingate for the day and it turns out R&J was the only place open (which explains why it was so busy). Super friendly service and most of us ate the daily special of pork chops and potatoes. It was incredibly tasty and quite the hefty portion as well! Great place for lunch in... More

If you would like to have a quick meal because you are in a hurry, do not hesitate and come in. The food is ok and the waitresses are very friendly and helpfull.

I took a friend to Twillingate for a day trip. It is off season now but R & J Restaurant is open year round. Great location on the waterfront. Comfortable dining room with great view of the harbour. Staff was willing to accommodate a gluten free meal and prepared a tasty grilled chicken breast!

We had lunch which was excellent, but dinner that evening was not as good. I don't know if this is normal, but would recommend for lunch only

Santa Fe wrap and the sweet potato fries were delicious. Pork chop dinner was scrumptious as usual. Thank you RJ's

Not a lot of choice for restaurants in Twillingate. Staff were wonderful, but the food was average tasting.

We ate here for dinner on our visit to Twillingate. We tried their pizza and it was very good. We couldn't finish it all and couldn't take it with us so offered it to the server to give to someone in the back and we hope she did. Very reasonable price and great service. Nice location right on the harbor.

Great location right on the water and excellent down home cooking. The fried chicken was particularly good.
