JJ's is a local hole-in-the-wall along Route 1 between Rockland and Camden, Maine. A walk-up window in the tiny hut in the semi-circular drive next to JJ's home offers a limited menu, but includes lobster sandwiches and rolls, clams, crab cakes, burgers, sausages, ice cream specialties and more. Forget lobster rolls and go for the hot lobster sandwich: a 1/4... More

The exterior of JJ's Snack Shack is pretty shabby. But the food that came from the inside was freshly made, and tasty. My lobster roll was made to order, full of sweet lobster. The sausage roll that my husband ordered was, as promised, quite spicy hot. Don't let the exterior looks keep you away.

We ordered root beer floats and ended up wearing most of it....was told to drink fast. How about just putting it in a bigger cup so we don't make a mess OR have to drink it without enjoyment? My hotdog had been out too long, the rolls they used fell apart making more of a mess. Nice guy, but not... More

Where else will you find original hush puppies from the southern recipe of Grandma Bridges? Are you looking for a great burger or maybe fried clams? How about a lobster roll? Sometimes pulled pork is on special but only after it has been slow cooked for more than 12 hours. Yes, this is a place you really want to return... More

We were driving from Maine to Massachusetts and needed lunch. This place hit the spot perfectly. First, the service was super friendly. They have a pretty big menu and the owner did a great job answering questions and making recommendations. I had the fried Lobster Nuggets. Man, these were excellent. Dip them in butter and your mouth is in heaven.... More

Sunday night - after an action-packed day of hiking and sightseeing, we wanted some yummy comfort food to take back to our hotel room so we could sit back and relax and watch a football game. Voilá - JJ's Snack Shop, a short hop away from our hotel. JJ's offers lobster rolls in 3 sizes! We opted for the largest... More
