The food was great but the location not so much. It is not directly on the water so it was a bit hot. Overall good place to eat.

Totally different concept. Food was good but more upscale (and expensive). Seafood slant. The Caribbean Chicken Rito was really good. Think of enchilada chicken (shredded) cooked with mango and sweet potatoes, curry etc . . . Service runs on Island Time. Get used to it. Would definitely go back. Beers $3,50 Entrees 15-20.

We ate our last meal on St. John at JJ's and we loved it! We recommend you stop by and grab a bite here!

Sadly, this local favorite has closed. Another local St. John business with great food, a funky atmosphere and reasonable prices gone to a pricey upscale establishment. In the course of our visits over the last eight years this tends to be a disappointing trend as St. John becomes even more popular. JJ's location directly across from the ferry dock made... More

I do believe that the name of the place has changed since they have done some renovations to it but when you walk of the ferry, it's right there in front of you behind the "market square". I have eaten there pretty much every time I go over to the beach at St. John and have taken many friends there.... More

We ate there just once, but it was very good. Like so many places in St. Johns, you will wait for a long time to get breakfast, but the coffee was a bottomless cup, service very good and the food also worth the wait. If you can get a view at the ledge overlooking town, that's a plus.

We ate breakfast here at least 5 times on our last trip to St John. Obviously it was good! The portions are good, prices fair, the service ok. Good coffee!! I thought the place look very clean, with the cleanest restaurant bathrooms we ventured into on the island! Enjoy!!

Newly renovated and on the square in Cruz Bay. Currently they only have a lunch menu which is served all day but plan to expand to a dinner menu as well. The ambiance is pretty good as was the service. Hopefully the menu will develop and make it a place to go in Cruz Bay.

We love JJ's for a great breakfast and people watching and bay watching and bird watching. It's just fun. Service is very good.
