Great place that no one knows about. Best part is the amount of craft beers and the staff knows them pretty well. Food is average. Staff were good and beer was awesome. Great place for drinks after work or after a ball game.

I hung out at the bar talking to the owner and enjoyed 3 locally brewed ales while chomping on a pizza made with locally sourced meat! This is an awesome place for great food and great beer and you know the owner and staff care about what they are doing!

We went here the other night and really enjoyed ourselves. I had Cajun jerk wings, which were very hot but super tasty. The other couples had pizza, which they also enjoyed. Fantastic selection of craft beer on tap. Great supporters of local beer. Interior is dated but service and good were great

This used to be our go-to restaurant for home made food in a quiet atmosphere. Now it seems like they are hardly open until evening and a lot of the food they serve is pre-made and they just heat it up. What happened to the good home-cooking? The chicken souvlaki in particular is now the same kind I can buy... More

The food was very average. Their biggest thing seems to be the sellection of Craft beer which was excellent. The sevice was good. The menu is very limited.

Group of 4 went into JJ's on Saturday June 6th. Having never been there before a nice Craft beer selection and local ingredients sign was a very impressive start for Pembroke. We entered and were seated right away by a very friendly waitress. Our waitress was attentive but not so much so that you feel bothered or annoyed... Perfection. I... More

If you want to try some local craft beer, JJ's is the place to go. Even though it has a pub look, it feels more like a restaurant since its not super busy anytime we go. The food is good and all locally sourced. I especially love their panzerotti or lasagna.

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 a panzarotti and... 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
