This nondescript, wee little restaurant and seafood market located next to a service station has good seafood. Our seafood was fresh and cooked well, but the sides were ordinary. Still, the seafood was the star of the show and they knew how to cook it. The service was great! The seafood market was loaded with goodies that, if one has... More

We’ve eaten at JR several times each year over the 10 years we’ve lived in Ellijay. Always enjoyed ourselves and so have friends we’ve taken there…until our last lunch. We started with the smoked fish spread that we’ve had before. This version has a nice smoky flavor, but was too salty. Senior citizens are constantly concerned about too much salt.... More

Been going there for years. Fish is as good as my Florida favorites. Always fresh tasting. Just need to arrive before it gets full.

We stopped to eat lunch here after reading the good reviews. She said it would only be a 10 minute wait but turned into 40 minutes. There's only about 7 tables. Everyone was very friendly and the food is delicious!

A hole in the wall restaurant that you probably wouldn't seek out, but well worth it. Everything appeared to be fried. I was with a friend that was local and she suggested the fried shrimp, which I had but I also had the grouper fingers since they were the special. I normally don't order fried foods, but this was so... More

Unassuming location, but once inside you feel the need to put on your shorts and flip flops! A great little seafood restaurant with the freshest fish this side of the gulf!!

I've been wanting to try this place for a while. It is a little bitty restaurant. Had the fish dip which was great and we split the lunch combo. Everything was tasty. Glad we went. Our waitress disappeared to run the cash register that was my only complaint but not a big deal.

The waitress is VERY GOOD at keeping... More
