Apparently there were some large parties there the night that we visited. While it added to the upbeat atmosphere, it did not hinder the service at all. The 2 people behind the bar were about the most efficient I have ever seen. And they were still friendly. The food was good and the drinks reasonably priced at happy hour.

My boyfriend and I first visited JJ's Clubhouse because we had an Entertainment 2 for 1 coupon and happened to be in the area. I didn't expect much walking in - it was rather dark and had a lingering "this used to be a smokey bar" smell. But there were plenty of TVs - including some with Buzztime trivia, which I really enjoy - and the menu looked promising.

My boyfriend ordered the walleye sandwich, which I tried. It was the best walleye I've had in ages. Even though the menu stated the fish was dipped in Dijon batter (which neither my boyfriend nor I like), the batter didn't really taste like Dijon. It was light and flavorful, and the fish tasted fresh. The tartar sauce was downright yummy. I had a French dip, which was good (would have been very good if the bun had been buttered and then toasted on the grill a bit).

We went back a couple of weeks later with another coupon, but didn't even use it. We got there during happy hour, and ALL appetizers were half price. We ordered buffalo wings (yum), onion rings (super sweet), and chicken fingers all for about $12. The plate of chicken tenders was ridiculous. There were 5 tenders (most places give you only 3), the breading was light and crispy, and the chicken was moist.

So far, everything has tasted homemade and delicious, so I'm looking forward to trying other menu items. The service also has been really good, and the prices are very reasonable. We'll definitely go back... soon.

We came here under the suggestion of our front desk agent at the Homewood Suites. We were looking for a fish fry in the area which is more difficult to find than one could imagine!

This is a nice place to take your family and get some decent food at great prices (considering the area you are in). A walleye fish fry was only $8.50 and served with slaw and fries. Burgers are under $9 each and plenty of other choices are offered. Our service was prompt and the atmosphere was inviting.

I'm a bit of a foodie and I'm not into sports, but I still like this place. They make a very good 8-ounce char-broiled burger and decent Philly cheesesteaks and French Dip sandwiches. They come with your choice of chips, fries, soup or cole slaw. It's a down-to-earth place with reasonable prices and friendly service. Most items are under $10.

We were desperate for a place to watch our hometown NFL team on Sunday and JJ's had every game available. We just picked a spot and a TV, told them what game we wanted to watch and it was put on that TV. The food was also pretty good and very generous portions. It's located just across the freeway from the TownePlace hotel.
