Good food, but restaurant not very clean

Chowder was good, as was the house salad with grilled halibut. Restaurant did not feel very clean. When walking on the floor it was sort of slippery and or sticky, as if there was grease on the floor. Setting was ok, as looked out on a parking lot, but if you look past the cars, you could see... read more

This place was recommended by some local people. It was crowded and we needed to wait even though we saw empty tables. When we were finally seated it took two requests to the hostess to get a waitress to come over and even the. We had to wait. The service after that from this particular waitress was better. The young... More

We had a party of 8 on a Saturday afternoon. We had expected a wait but after 45 minutes and you see the hostess set up your tables you kind of expected to be called. After waiting 10 more minutes we asked our hostess if that was our table. She said yes but she couldn't seat us because there was... More

We enjoyed sitting outside for lunch. All three of us had the 2 piece halibut fish and chips. Food arrived quickly, the fish pieces were huge, the french fries crispy and the cold slaw good. I would return here.

Stopped into J.J.'s Fishouse on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with two friends while visiting the Poulsbo area. I had the fish and chips and was very disappointed. The fish had no taste and the batter was also tasteless. Two of us had the fish and chips and both agreed they were a big disappointment. My friend said they usually... More

Beautiful setting near the Poulsbo marina. Great seafood keeps us coming back every time we come to the Olympic Peninsula. Friendly service and bottomless glasses of delicious raspberry tea!

There's clam chowder and then there's clam chowder. Also enjoyed a citrus salad with toasted coconut. You can sit inside our outside and enjoy the amazing view of the harbor.

The clam chowder was very good as was the fish and chips. My wife had a citrus salad and the DIL had an Oriental Chicken Salad. Both thought they were pretty good, but both had questions about the ingredients! We each had a couple of local draft beers that were tasty. The restaurant has both a deck and inside seating...

Words alone simply cannot capture my sincere appreciation for this restaurant. Stopped just to get a "mug" of clam chowder and was super impressed with the employees and the soup was absolutely wonderful. When in Poulsbo, WA do yourself a favor and stop at this place. Lots of parking in front of the restaurant which is one block off of... More
