Stopped after a Lowell Spinners game with good friends who had visited before. They have never steered us wrong and this was no exception. Our waitress suggested the smaller 'bites' versions of several entrees and it was a perfect size. Our table had Broiled Scallops, Broiled Haddock, Meatloaf and a Turkey Club. All were excellent. We started outside with live music, then moved inside for Keno and one last drink. With a separate dining room, outside deck and a large bar area with the requisite TVs, it appears that JJ Boomers has something for everyone. We will definitely return.

If you like sports, yelling at televisions, dancing to outdated club music, massachusetts accents, domestic beer, and lots of laughs, this is the place for you!

Limp french fries and rude management. Not a place I want to go back to. Only nice thing was the waitress.

It is nice that Jim the manager feels he has enough business to be rude to customers.

J.J. Boomers has become my husband and my first choice for healthy comfort food. We love the large, roomy booths and general good value of the restaurant in the back, behind the large bar area (it's a whole different room and atmosphere than the front room).

If my husband doesn't get his favorite chicken parmigiana, we often choose from the chef's specials for dinner. Standard menu favorites for dinner include the superb Caesar salad and chicken quesadilla (we split the large Caesar and the ample chicken quesadilla). If we're there on a Sunday night, my husband enjoys the prime rib special ($11.99 last time we were there), which comes with a salad and two sides. Speaking of sides, if you like butternut squash, I highly recommend JJ's butternut side dish, just the right nutmeg and spices make this side dish extraordinary.

Most recently I tried JJ's lobster dinner -- this was a special on the menu and it was excellent. The 1 1/2lb. lobster was stuffed with crabmeat (could also get it boiled or broiled plain), and it came with the usual salad and two sides. This is a casual place, so it was fun to be eating this "extravagant" lobster dinner in flip flops, as it were.

NOTES: 1) All the servers are terrific, but we especially like Adam Hastetler, a young man who is extremely attentive but not intrusive. Adam was quick to bring extra napkins, water and whatever we needed (the lobster was a messy meal for me). Adam also has a great sense of humor and style -- he makes the meal memorable! 2) Thursday and Friday nights there is karaoke in the bar area with huge crowds. I don't mind the sound of the crooners and warblers, but my husband really hates it, much too noisy for him (the karaoke starts @ 8:30 PM). 3) JJ's is walking distance from the Vandenburg Esplanade, a beautiful paved walk alongside the Merrimack River. If it's a nice day or evening, plan to walk along the river before or after dinner, or walk over the Roarke Bridge. Great views, very peaceful part of Lowell., strong romantic possibilities abound...
