  • Always go for the Special Wonton Soup! Huge delicious healthy(ish) meal for your money! The waitress is okay, not nice but not mean. Gets her job done. But i dont care because its cheap and the food is always delicious! Worth a try!

  • Order: Special Wonton Soup.

  • When I go out for breakfast it is usually a treat so I always order the same thing. My eggs were perfecy not over cooked or to runnie, me bacon was a little crisy but good, and my home fries were the best nicely cook crispy. No pulp orange juice which I like so a bonus there.

  • Order: Eggs,Home Fries, Bacon,Orange jucie and ice water.

  • The food was amazing, it always is. However alot of their serving staff is a little new in the game, and has a lot to learn. But that shouldn't be a big deal in a FAMILY restaurant. We all have to learn sometimes right? I think this place is amazing, its somewhere I always want to go, good food, nice people, and its just a nice place to take my family to eat.

  • Order: 2 Pepsi, 1 Coffee, Chicken Ceaser Salad, Grilled Chicken Platter, Hot beef on rye with fries, kids chicken fingers

  • The waitress ruined the meal....she was rude....and because she knows my ex...she made a prejudgement of me and told me I was a miserable man and no wonder I don't have my ex anymore.....this was said in from of my 7yr old son and 1 week old infant and my now spouse.....she told us never to come back...and this was because I pointed out the mistake, but when she offered to fix it, I told her we had already been there for 40 mins and she just walked away giving me the hand.

  • Order: We ordered cheeseburgers and fries gravy on the side and same for our son but they ended up put gravy on the fries.

  • J.J's has the most remarkable service; better than anything I have ever encountered before. When I went to pick up my meal ( to go) I was invited to sit down and warm up. They even gave me free hot chocolate while I waited! Also, when it came to the bill, I did not have the exact amount, so they rounded down and gave me the sauce for free! The chicken fried rice was the best I ever had.

  • Order: chicken fried rice

  • Waitress very nasty when I mentioned the eggs & unpleasant oil taste with potatoes. She said she didn't appreciate customers who whine about their meals. Drew to my attention how full the restaurant was at 9:30 already. Her customer relation skills are lacking and I will be taking this further to have the health department look into their kitchen and how often they change their cooking oil.

  • Order: Breakfast special. No poached allowed. 2 Eggs over easy (served cold). Crisp bacon good. Hash browns so much grease, refused and sent back.

  • Using a scale where Kelsey's is a 10 (it's not, but let's just go with this) and McDonald's is a 5, JJ's is about a 6.5. Lots of sodium, everything deep fried in the same fryer (leaving an odd taste in your mouth), it's not what anybody means by a 9 or 10. The atmosphere isn't anything special, either.
    Try another Asian restaurant in Thunder Bay like "Ma's" (which is closing in Sept. 06) for an excellent, solid 8.5 to 9 meal and great service. The atmosphere is also refined.

  • Order: Mixed greens with tofu, Budweiser.
