My family thoroughly enjoyed our visit to JJ's. We all had Fish-n-Chips and thought they were delicious - fish was light and flaky and not greasy. Nice selection of draft beers.

So, we landed in Poulsbo, WA unexpectedly today because the USS Turner Joy was closed (Winter hours!).... after we met an old school friend, we headed to J J's Fishhouse for lunch and it met expectations with simple fish and chips for dad and husband and more complex meals for mom and son! Both my dad (an old Washington State... More

We were in the Seattle area for a few days and went to Poulsbo to visit the Scandinavian shops. We decided to have lunch at JJ's because it was nearby. My salmon with roasted vegetables was awesome and my husband said his halibut fish and chips were equally awesome!!! We both agreed that it was the best fish we had... More

Best smoked salmon pasta ever. No joke. We just stopped in Poulsbo by chance and glad we did. It is such a lively and quaint town. We walked around and found this nice restaurant and sat down. Such fantastic food, though I wasn't a big fan of the fish and chips the smoked salmon pasta was so good.

This comfortable casual place is located on the waterfront park area of Poulsbo. Fish is fresh and chowder is delicious! Resonable prices and good for the whole family. Being on the waterfront the view is great of the Poulsbo Marina and Bay.

We had not visited J J's in a while and decided to try it again. Location is good near the waterfront in downtown Poulsbo and very airy with doors and windows open. The problem is that it attracted a bunch of flies that were flying around the restaurant though they did not bother us. Service was good and the food... More

Iced tea, moldy tasting, calamari overcooked pre-frozen in old dirty oil. Service not great, and fish and chips, average at best. Was hoping for better but this is one of the worst restaurants I have been to in a long time.

The fish and chips, clam chowder and citrus salad are all very good at J.J's Fishhouse. I was a little taken aback at the interior though. The floor was cracked and sticky. The tables seemed in random placement across the room, but were clean. The wait staff was great. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food, so appearance isn't everything,

My rating is really somewhere between "average" and "very good". I liked the food, and everything seems very fresh, but the kitchen staff could be a bit more serious in their efforts - perhaps one more line cook would help (not sure). About half of the wait staff working the one night Lori and I ate there seemed to be... More

This restaurant has the best fish and chowder around this area. The atmosphere is great and goes along with the menu. They have a fabulous menu and all the food is great. If you have a chance to go there, I would definitely suggest it.

Thank Greeksldy
