Restaurant referral from Palm Beach hotel Concierge while attending a meeting. WOW! What a treat!! A convenient 15 min drive from West Palm Beach. Attentive server (Katherine), quaint dining room, excellent appetizers of mussels and oysters, JJ's Tower entree was beyond my expectation in presentation and flavor. Mashed potatoes with 5 oz filet topped with crab cake and two gulf... More

J&J is owned by Chef John and his wife Tina & is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to and I've been to many. John takes great pride in preparing his food & it shows in every tasty dish. The menu items are all great but his specials are outstanding. You can't go wrong with any of... More

Recently had my first dining experience at J&J Raw Bar on E. Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, and can assure you it won't be my last. Friendly and attentive service, excellent ice cold clams and oysters from the raw bar, and creative, flavorful preparations of both snapper and grouper specials had our group of 4 planning to return. It was... More

Last time I came here the food and service were excellent. Tonight we had 2 good entrees out of four and the waitress forgot our appetizers until our dinner was already served. We spent about $150 with only one glass of wine and everyone is still hungry. They obviously did not care that half of our food was not good... More

My wife and I were invited by our friends to join them at J&J Seafood in Delray Beach. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a cigarette smoking hostess. Walking through cigarette smoke was my first turn off to this place. I was contemplating having oysters as an appetizer until I observed the oyster shucker behind the bar eating ice... More

We were lucky to have spent a weekend in Delray Beach with family for our 30 th wedding anniversary & Father's Day. To add to the festivities we went to dinner at J & J. The food was outstanding & the service was spot on. The escargot appetizer was delicious as was the fish....grouper& branzino. The rib eye was cooked... More
