My uncle lived in Caro for many years, JJ Jamokes was his favorite spot for dinner out. We were in town recently for a family reunion and decided to visit for old times sake. The restaurant has changed hands since our last visit so we were a bit hesitant at first. We were pleasantly surprised, the food is still good,... More

Went for lunch. This place is good, but not great and it just seems to be a little out of my range for a lunch. Both the lunch and dinner prices are just 2-4 dollars higher than you would expect. The food is good, don't get me wrong.

over rated restaurant with a greedy owner apparantly, prices are high for what you get and on top of that charge extra to use credit card. I can see why there were not many people there tonight. If it were not for our party of ten, they might have just as well closed the door, still didn't make any money... More

The food is OK, but overpriced for what you get. I've been there 3 times and only had 1 decent waitress. They charge you to use a credit card and don't take checks so bring cash. Don't trust your waitress to know what the special is. Last time I was there I ordered and later found out that what I... More

In my many trips to Caro, MI for business I ALWAYS have at least one dinner at JJ Jamokes. It is located just outside of the center of town in a wooded setting. Picture windows provide a view of the woods where deer can be seen feeding in early evenings. The menu is interesting and food tasty; and you can... More

Brought my wife up here for dinner on our anniversary. This was our first visit since change in ownership. Can't remember what we had, but we do remember that it was just as good as it ever was. Whatever glitches that might have happened early in the current ownership seem to have been fixed, and we had a very enjoyable... More

My wife and I have decided to 'boycott' JJ Jamokes . . . it used to be a fine dining experience when we first moved to Tuscola County i.e. for anniversaries and special occasions --- and just a couple of miles from our home. Our last anniversary (this spring) I decided to take my wife there and the service was... More

Service is terrible anymore. Staff spends more time standing around in a bunch then taking care of patrons. Food is not as good as it was before new owners.

The place for dinner & cocktails in this area of Michigan's "Thumb". A wide range on the menu. As you eat, the picture windows allow you to watch more birds birds than you can imagine, along with turkeys & deer in the back yard. So restful. The food was prepared as ordered. The waitstaff were a lot of fun to... More
