Outdoor patio in the summer tucked... More

I visited this restaurant on a Friday night with a large group. It was really really busy. I would not recommend going without a reservation on a weekend. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal from chicken fingers, to steak, to butter chicken. I had the chicken BLT poutine which was a delicious mix of everything right in 1 bowl.... More

Been here a few times now. Always good beer and a friendly smile. Love the patio in the summer, especially when there's music.

A friend of mine suggested stopping in this place because of the wait staff and the beer selection. Ordered a Pint and sat outside in the "Alley patio" which was fantastic. The visit was during the summer so there was some great shade between the two buildings. The wait staff at the J&J all wear kilts so it made for... More

This was our second time here. Half-price wings garner a crowd! The wings are really good - and the tequila lime BBQ sauce rocks! We orders their sweet potato fries - good size serving and were nice and crispy! Be there before noon, or you will be relegated to the back room ;-) A drink purchase is required to get... More
