Loved the shrimp dinner and my co-worker very much enjoyed the chicken fingers. Good menu, great location and overall good experience!

“worth the long drive from Toronto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

After driving all day to Cochrane to board the train to Moosenee, we got into town around six p.m. and asked a local where they would recommend. Without hesitation, she said "J.R.'s!!" We had seen it when entering the town, it is right across from the OPP and it has a big sign you cannot miss.

We ordered ribs, soup, fries and then beer. These were the most delicious ribs I've ever eaten in my life! The restaurant staff were very friendly and our waitress was Angela who was able to speak in English and French to the clientele. Lots of stuffed creatures and wooden pictures on the wall.

This place was so delicious we wanted to eat on the return from Moosenee, but the train gets in too late and the restaurant is closed. Dang. I still dream about those delicious ribs. ;)

The food is grea, the ribs are great. The service is good, but the atmosphere needs help. The location is good.

“Didn't Need The Lecture!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

After a long day of travelling we just wanted to relax at the bar and have a beer before going into the dining room for dinner. One of the servers took it upon herself to request that my husband not drink and drive and proceeded to give us "the lecture" It wasn't appreciated and was totally uncalled for. We had one beer and left without having dinner.

“Ribs are good but expensive compared to Toronto”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

When you're the only game in town you can charge what you want. This place was expensive for the experience. Fries were good and ribs were above average. Service is nice too.
