We stopped here just as they were opening. The service was very slow. not sure if it was because they just opened or because the girl waiting on us seemed a little confused. It was at least 30 minutes or more before we got our food and we were the only customers. The lobster nuggets were very good as was... More

My boyfriend and I stopped after closing one evening for ice cream. Although they were closed and all cleaned up for the night, they kindly scooped us each a cone ON THE HOUSE! So, we returned for lunch the next day and I had the best mushroom-swiss burger ever, cooked to perfection. My guy enjoyed his lobster nuggets and coffee... More

Yessss lobster nuggets, fried clams, unbelievable burgers, kid specialties! Just pull the car over, walk up and place an order. Or even better call ahead! Don't judge JJ's by the shack. Might look a bit shabby, but inside is a friendly guy with a true passion for food. The whole belly fried clams were so light and amazing. The incredible... More

If you're into elegance, this place is not for you. If you're into good local food, oh yeah! I thoroughly enjoyed a 'lazy lobster' sandwich to die for. They even accommodate dogs! It's just a little roadside place, but it was good!

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

JJ thanks for lunch! Sorry about all the change. Your Hummel dogs really are the best. Great cooking. Your friendliness is what makes your place truly superb. I'll come by next time I'm in the area guaranteed!
