J's is real small and a local favorite with a good menu and daily local seafood specials. This is the best fish and chips in Lincoln City that I have found and we've been coming here for 15+ years. Really good value at the beach.

Okay, maybe we were starving, but this really was our food highlight of our vacation. It's a little bit of a dive, but it was fantastic! The gal working the cash register was delightful, even despite the chaos. This place is tiny, seating is limited, and our 30 minute wait for food was 'one of the shortest all day'. But... More

We went there 3 times while on our 5 day vacation. The shrimp was amazing. The place is pretty small and a bit crowded and they have some odd rules on how to order but just look past it and enjoy your lunch or dinner. Plan to wait about 30-45 minutes for orders in or to go.

We had the mixed fish basket which tasted alright. It consists of 1 each deep fried halibut, medium shrimp and cod?/with french fries. But.... I was wary of the very warm tarter sauce and coleslaw. These should be served cold at all restaurants. Ours wasn't, and we felt the effects of upset system the next day. By the way, the... More

Completely UNIMPRESSED by everything. The halibut was fine but nothing special. We called in a to-go order and the gentlemen that answered didn't sound like he wanted us to order, made sure he told me twice that the order would take at least an hour. Once you get there, they have multiple signs that say "TO GO ORDERS ARE TO... More

J's is a family owned, family run, small restaurant with somewhat limited seating. Their fish is local and freshly caught. In my opinion, their clam chowder is somewhat better than Mo's. The fish and chips were excellent. I can't imagine going to that part of the coast and not eating at J's. I love to see family businesses succeed, and... More

Seating is limited and the wait for orders is very long but if you are not in a hurry the fish (fried cod) is the best! The chowder is good but too peppery and not too many chunks of actual clams or potato. We ate here several times during our stay in lincoln city.

Over the years we have gone to Lincoln City and tried the big name big $$$ restaurants and one day we spotted the lunch special advertised on the front window of J’s and decided it was time for what we call an adventure meal. Since that day we have made it a point to stop and eat at J's fish... More

My wife and I had heard good reviews of J's from friends and since we love clam chowder and seafood we thought we would give it a try. We were definitely not disappointed. While we love the clam chowder at Mo's restaurants along the Oregon coast, I believe that Jay's clam chowder is even superior. They've thrown a little sage... More

Been coming here for years & I don't even like fish - hence the 4 stars. But my husband has tried it all & raves about everything. We've never ever had bad or rude service even when the tiny place has been overflowing. Always feel like we get our money's worth. (For the few weirdos like me who don't care... More
