Yummy chowder!

We had great fun visiting Poulsbo on a rainy cold day recently! It was a perfect day to have the clam chowder to warm the old bones. It was deliciously creamy and filled with bacon, potatoes, and of course clams:) My sister had the citrus salad with salmon. She said the salmon was great, the... read more

We came here just for the voted "best" clam chowder in the local area. It was okay but not the best we've ever had. Very creamy and lots of herbs. Very few clams and no clam flavor. We were disappointed. We think it should be called creamy herb soup instead. We will try again because the menu had a lot... More

Had out of town guests who like seafood. Went for an early dinner. Had fish and chips which were very good, as usual. One person had an oyster dinner. He said it was excellent.

This is our go to restaurant for seafood on the Kitsap Penninsula. The fish is cooked to order and the fries superb. The citrus salad is outstanding and service pleasant and efficient. I find the portions more than adequate, in fact we often split plates and have plenty. The ambiance is great during the day, busy and bustling and while... More

My husband ordered the salmon (baked) and I ordered the halibut ( also baked). They were somewhat simple but fresh tasting and delicious. It came with rice pilaf ( which was great as well) and amazing fresh grilled veggies(zucchini, yellow squash and onions). As an appetizer we ordered the crab cakes , which were awesome! They tasted home made, which... More

I really want to like J.J.'s. But I'm not a fan. It's location facing the Poulsbo Marina certainly helps to bring in the tourists looking for seafood. The view there is actually not that great, being open only on one side, overlooking a parking lot (with the marina beyond that). During the summer, they open the side toward the marina... More

For the town of Poulsbo , this place was not that impressive. The food, I had the clam chowder, was bland and the service was nonexistent. If you are visiting Poulsbo I recommend you save your money and find another place to eat.

Food is not very well prepared, the place is very noisy. Outside dining is facing the parking lot. I wonder about the cleanliness. Very disappointing.
