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.

We had never been to this restaurant before but were not disappointed. The food was delicious. I had fish and chips and couldn’t eat it all, my husband and his cousin had burgers and fries or onion rings, our daughter had chicken fingers and fries....The staff was very pleasant. Would love to go again.More

For the past 18 years we have spent three days at the Sussex flea market and stay at the Fairway and eat at J J's. We really like the food and find the staff friendly and efficient. So why not five stars? Well this year...I find they have switched to having the waitress come to the table with a credit card processor instead of leaving the bill on the table and letting us pay at the counter when we leave. We find this very annoying. At home in Nova Scotia we eat out once a week or more and are eliminating those that use this system.More

We stopped in at 5 pm on a sunny Saturday and were seated right away, though when we left an hour later there was a bit of a line. It’s very popular locally, and for good reason. The English style fish and chips I had...was excellent; the batter was just right though the fish inside was oddly tough. My dining partners enjoyed their food as well. Portions are generous and the fries are excellent! The service is quick and courteous, and really causes me to wonder at the level of service we’ve become used to at similar places.More
