“A Delray Beach delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Like others, went with previous Trip Advisor reviews and came away smiling. Great food, lots of unique offerings, wait staff on top of things...can't go wrong. Started with pan fried oysters and didn't look back. Great Lobster fra Diablo, my wife had sweet potato-crusted Red Snapper. Everything was delightful. Pricey but....hey it's vacation. Very special taste of South Florida.

“Outstanding Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We came based on Trip Advisor reviews and were very pleased. I had a special with yellowtail snapper and shrimp over risotto and both the fish and the shrimp were cooked to perfection, not overcooked as is often the case at seafood restaurants. My husband had the tower and liked it but not as much as my fish. I got the gazpacho because of other reviews, but I found it had too much sauce for the amount of chopped vegetables and it was primarily cucumber. The fried calamari was a good appetizer - not overcooked and with a unique slightly sweet batter. We had flourless chocolate cake (very good) and key lime pie (amazing and not over-tart) for dessert.
The restaurant has heavy traffic at the bar with a good number of locals eating there. We sat outside which was not particularly scenic but was relaxing and we were able to chat with one of the owners, who was greeting patrons and passers-by.
Beer list is simple but varied. Wine list is a little more extensive. No mixed drinks.
We will definitely be back but will stick with the fish and dessert.

“Another great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

As always J & J's service and food were stellar. Tommy did a great job shucking the Gulf oysters, and the seafood mac and cheese was awesome!

“Great Seafood place on East Atlantic!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

If you looking to get away from the hype on East Atlantic, come to J & J!! Their seafood dishes are unbelievable, especially the J & J Tower!! The J & J Tower is like nothing I have ever eaten before, surf and turf with a twist, a must try!! Their desserts were delicious as well! Service top notch, like I was family!! My new favorite seafood restaurant in Delray Beach!!
