Had the extreme pleasure of dining here for 5 meals while in Sussex. Staff is beyond amazing! So friendly and attentive. Restaurant was clean during every visit. Now let's talk food- every meal was great. From breakfast with toast, ham and eggs to the desserts...at supper. My fav- turkey and dressing poutine; the serving was large enough for 3 people easily. The banana cream pie was delicious and would highly recommend. The chowder is another must have.More

JJ's has a cute atmosphere and the food is good. A good selection of diner food. My friend said the coffee wasn't very good, but we both enjoyed our meals and the milkshake. Service was a little slow and the restaurant wasn't very busy, but...not worth complaining about. We had a lovely visit.More

Our third time to dine there, this time was terrible, slow service, will never order the special ever, hot turkey 🦃 sandwich was half cold all dark little pieces of turkey, small amount of gravy on mashed potatoes and they were cold and tasteless. A...lite dessert was included the rice pudding was old and was in clumps from being in fridge too long. Had to wait long for the bill, never again.More

We have been looking for a basic diner with good service and food. Finally found it, the service was friendly and efficient on a very busy Saturday. They have booths and stools and tables. Accessible except for the washroom which is ok with a walker...or cane. Homemade potato salad as a side was excellent. It is not cheap but with inflation nothing is. Will definitely return.More

worst experience ever - table hadn’t been cleaned - had sugar which was wet & then dried & stuck to table & booth seat - ordered Philly sandwich- each half was - 2”long - for a total 4” long sandwich & 1.5” wide - cost...$18.00 with one side - coleslaw was runny - complained & got half off - but should never have gotten such a small sandwich to begin with - won’t be backMore

Stopped on our way back from Moncton with our two good friends for an early supper. From the time we arrived til we left it was wonderful. Our waitress "Jess: certainly added to the time there. VERY sweet and patient and always smiling. She'd check...to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything. As always the food was DELICIOUS and so may choices on the new menu!! It has been one of our favorite places to eat and look forward to many more meals there. Thanks once again JJ's Diner.More

We're local in Sussex, and have eaten here occasionally over the years. This afternoon, we took our son out for his birthday lunch - my wife had fish, I had a burger, and our son had one of his favourites - JJ's poutine! It was...all so good, which isn't unusual. What made this particular visit especially memorable was the excellent service provided by our waitress - Jessica - and the discovery that our son's meal was gratis, since it was his birthday! Recommended, even if it isn't your birthday! :)More

Prices have increased due to covid but a great place for what one could say is a home cook meal which is better than no meal

We loved this restaurant! My wife and I went there in January and we just fall in love with this place. All atmosphere is great, a mix of vintage and new! The attendant was very friendly. The food was really really good especially the fish...and chips, that was the best fish and chips I had tried!!! The fish was really well cooked, no more no less, the right cooking. We certainly will go back and recommend to our friends.More

Not bad, standard bacon eggs and homefries. I will say that the lady who answered the phone when I called in my order was rather rude, but the food was just what we needed that morning.
