We called late in the afternoon so we had to take a late dinner time, but it was worth the wait. The restaurant is very small so make your reservations well in advance. The service was very good and the food was even better. We had the steamed little neck clams and the mussels for an appetizer. Our... read more

You could easily walk past this and miss it. I would be sad for you. It's simply amazing. Fresh and innovative. Service is attentive. Best meal we had on the Atlantic Coast.

How is it that a restaurant that has been in business for the past 15 years stayed largely hidden? J and J differs from nearly every restaurant on Atlantic Avenue. First, the restaurant itself is relatively narrow and is easy to miss. Secondly, they don’t take reservations on Open Table. Had it not been for Trip Advisor we likely would... More

When we first arrived for dinner we were the only ones in the place. That did not last long as it filled up quickly. The seafood was good and there were a lot of choices from the bar. The place we stayed recommended the restaurant and provided a discount. The wait staff did not scoff at the discount card. Very... More

Cute storefront restaurant with limited seating. I started with middle neck clams, very fresh. For entrees, I had the Sautéed Crab Cake with saffron lemon aioli, fruit salsa, lettuce, and tomato on a choice of herb tortilla or fresh bun. It came with crispy French fries. The crab cake was very good, without any fillers. My wife ordered the roasted... More

We found this little gem of a restaurant by mistake. For lunch the waiter was very attentive and the food outstanding. The Lobster Mac and Cheese with Truffle Oil appetizer was a meal unto itself. The Halibut on Risotto was perfectly seasoned an cooked to perfection, theMahi Wrap was wrapped with a surprisingly tasty combination of greens and was dressed... More

FANtastic hostess, perfect waitress. Fast and attentive service, very small place so you better have a reservation. Pan seared Grouper was 5 stars, risotto was 4.5, needless oil around the risotto 1 star. Bread before the meal......2 stars. Lobster pot pie was a culmination of only chewy claw meat, crust was a definite delight, but kind of a failure on... More

As always had excellent service from the highly trained staff, and the food is alway first rate; but i seems the chef has gotten into a comfort zone, where he has some solid crowd pleasing dishes, but does not venture far beyond the standard. Don't get me wrong, the tried and true dishes are very good, but where you have... More

The place is extremely noisy and hot. The dishes were ok. All of our fish dishes were cooked to the perfect degree of "doneness" but the sauces and preparations were busy and bland. The service was attentive and friendly. It's a bit pricy for what you get.

Mixed results. There were seven of us for dinner. Three, including me, were very pleased with our dinners. The other four voted only average. Service in this very small restaurant was excellent and the meal was prepared promptly. If I lived in the area I would be a frequent visitor
