Sunday night - after an action-packed day of hiking and sightseeing, we wanted some yummy comfort food to take back to our hotel room so we could sit back and relax and watch a football game. Voilá - JJ's Snack Shop, a short hop away from our hotel. JJ's offers lobster rolls in 3 sizes! We opted for the largest... More

Awful. Whole belly clams lacked bellies. Cole slaw was spoiled. Ice tea tasted like diesel fuel. Sick all night.

We are truly saddened at the thought that even just one of our customers has had anything short of a wonderful experience at JJ's. We strive for superlative offerings @ a fair price and solid service. My only wish is that we had an opportunity to make right any shortcomings that you experienced. We stand behind everything we do.

We came across JJ's Snack Shack as it was across the street from our hotel. Looking for a quick place to eat, we saw it listed on Trip Advisor. Great service, great food! They will make your food pretty much anyway you want. Did not have hot coffee, but it is on the menu for 25 cents!

My Philadelphia son's visiting and was jonesing for poutine, considering how comparatively closer to Quebec Glen Cove/Rockland is than Philly. We've been back several times in the last two weeks.
