Good spot!

My mom and I decided to try something new in Pembroke, and since I drive past it almost every day but haven't ever gone in, we picked JJ's. They have a great beer selection, their food is a really good price. The waitress and the bartender were super friendly. The food is good - my mom had... read more

Although some of the food quality dwindled, overall it is a wonderful spot. Great owner, nice local beers. My wife and I always had the Guinness Our but the last few times, it was burnt and had less ingredients. I hope they improved it.

Was recommended by a local hotel to go for a great pizza. I was not disappointed. I got it to go, and while waiting got to sample some of the local beers. Jon who served me was super knowledgable about the craft beers and their particulars. Oh ya... the pizza, the combo, was awesome. The dough was like nothing I've... More

Tried this place on Tripadvisor reviews and glad I did. Good service, excellent pizza and fair price. What more can you ask for. Will be back next time in town.

I sat at the bar, had some beer and poutine and talked to the owner. Pretty fascinating guy, he's also a farrier or some such (horse guy). My canuck friends had been talking up poutine but I hadn't tried it until I got here. OK, it's kind of a big deal. But I couldn't eat it more than once a... More

My wife and I dropped in to JJ's for a quick beer and some pizza. We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive and interesting draft beer selection (I had the Whitewater stout), and thought the pizza was pretty good to. The service was friendly and excellent, and our server wrapped our leftover pizza up for us to take away with... More

Big Red's in Nova Scotia is the best but JJ's Special Pizza is amazing, love the selection of local beers on tap, Whitewater Farmer's Daughter is very good. Reasonably priced. Weird hours though.

As a Pembroke native and student who comes back to town once and a while to visit his parents, this is my go to place to grab a bite, enjoy a craft beer, and catch up with friends. The owner is exceptionally friendly and sources many of his ingredients locally. Even the beer is brewed just 20 km away. As... More
