“Oasis in the middle of no where”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

JJ's not only has a great location in the middle of the Fells, but the beer is always cold. For the coldest beer I would recommend a bottled beer poured into a chilled glass. The free popcorn starts to turn stale around closing. I find it most comfortable in the lounge area. But if you have children they have a restaurant side too.

I've never had to send my food back. Portion size is such you never leave hungry. Price point is a dollar or 2 higher than TGIF's but worth the experience. The service is par. The bartenders are fantastic.

If you head over to this little place it might turn into one of your regular hang out spots.

“Don't feel like cooking? This is the place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

J.J. Grimsby & Co. is an excellent place for those evenings when you just don't feel like cooking. The food is good (standard American comfort food), the servings are generous, and the price is modest. The atmosphere in the dining room is pleasant and warm, not too loud for conversation, and the service is beyond reproach.I had barbecued spareribs, which were good, with a baked potato which was excellent--seemed to be baked in salt; perfect! My husband had a steak tip salad, which he found to be very good. Our daughter had a very large burrito, with apple crisp for dessert, which she said was excellent.
There is ample parking.
