“Great seafood platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a cozy little, relatively inexpensive place for fresh seafood. We shared a mussel and crab platter (lobsters were just out of season or we would have included one on our platter) that was delicious, messy and just right for 2 with fries on the side. Highly recommend.

“great fish & chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

downside is they only deep fry, upside is that they sell fresh fish that you can take home and cook yourself.

Classic.

“NOT ENOUGH LOBSTER”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went specifically for their lobster 'burger' which had been recommended to us. It was a very reasonable price, but unfortunately had hardly any lobster in it. It would have been better to charge a few dollars more to get more 'filling'. The same went for their crab 'burger'.
Service was very slow.

“Good seafood platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

J & J Seafood has an amazing platter. 1/2 a fresh crab, full 1-1.25 lbs lobster 25 to 30 fresh mussels and a mountain of frys.
We ate and ate and still couldn't finish all the lobster and mussels. For $35 and the huge platter you get I have never seen thast much food at that price (and all fresh). This is a must. They also have a good 1 or 2 pice fish and chip. The fish is great but they need to get away from the lard fried chips and move to an oil based fryer.

“Best EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Fresh seafood, lovely hosts. Fabulous food. We had the "Platter" and it fed a family of four (4). Spent 2 nights in Twillingate and ate at JJ twice. P.S Take out is an option. Nothing fancy but the service and food "rock".
