“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Had lunch at J J's. The service was great. Had the fish and chips and it was delicious. The halibut was very fresh and tender. Very relaxing dinning atmosphere. I will definitely eat there again when I am in Poulsbo.

“Casual dining quick stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

This is the place to go w/family & friends for a quick seafood lunch/dinner. This is not the place if you're looking for fancy fine dining.

Whenever I'm in town w/family we love to stop in for chowder. I'm a New Englander and while this may not be the best seafood in the world, it sure makes me feel like I'm home. It's casual, family fun/friendly, reasonably priced, in a great location and we can all find something we like. Plus, we all enjoy the warm bread w/butter while we wait for our meals. Our kids always have fun w/the coloring pages and free plastic sea creatures.

Yes, the place could stand to be "spiffed" up a bit; ie. moving the outdoor trashcan, cleaning up the hallways to b/r and straightening up the b/r. Relatively easy things to do w/out changing the down-home feel and w/out raising the prices. Maybe I'll mention those things next time I'm in. But until then, just sit inside when a westerly wind is blowing, and use the bathroom before you leave home. Then be sure to order the chowder, you'll be glad you did.

“Only in town for 2 days, crab cakes were so succulant we ate there twice! Dynamite food & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2011

We were in town in Jan. Great location right on marina. Pretty view. Casual, clean, friendly atmosphere, pleasant, attentive service. Glad we gave benefit of doubt on a few out-dated, neg. reviews as they are clearly un-deserved! MUST HAVE THE CRAB CAKES, and don't skip the accompanying mango chutney. I intended to pass, but it's so good it's addictive!

“MMMMmmmMMMM!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

Some of the best fish and chips we've ever had! Absolutely delicious. Made even better sitting outside on the deck enjoying the summer weather and view of the water.
