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

We used to eat here a lot years ago but it changed. Thought we'd give it a another try. Well we won't be back. We ordered the fish and chips which was ok but the coleslaw had a weird taste and a small Hawaiian pizza with a garden salad. The pizza was not very good for $16.00 and the salad... More

Look, this is want I want a local, casual restaurant: a focused menu with local produce/beef, good selection of micro-beer and good service. Now, it's not foie gras, or caviar, with linen and crystal, but that's not why we go: we find the it comforting and relaxed - just what you want in your "local" place. Try the burgers, pizza,...

Menu selection was limited and not impressive. They have taken off all of the "good" items they once had. Ordered the spinach dip. The entire dip was a wierd colour (not a spinach colour) and tasted HORRIBLE. Worst spinach dip I have ever had. We then waited too long for a pizza that wasn't very good. I will not return.

JJ's is my go-to spot with my kids, on a date night with my wife, or with the guys for some wings and pints. The menu changes just enough each year to always offer something new to us regulars! Currently they are featuring a Nacho bar and some specialty burgers. I highly recommend the Greek Nachos and Philly Cheeseburger. JJ's... More

It has been over a year since I ate at this restaurant. I know they promote buying local produce. I hope to try it again soon.
