JJ's is a very unassuming "shack" on the side of route 1. The burgers were so big and full of toppings that they couldn't be finished. We took our burgers down to the Rockport Harbor and ate there.

Nestled between the coastal towns of Rockland and Camden, you will spy a small, locally run opportunity to stop for a meal on the inland side of Route One just to the south of Glen Cove. If you're heading north, it is possible to slip...More

My wife says her lobster roll was the best she ever tasted. My fish and chips (hand cut fries) were excellent; the best I had this week. The portions are generous.

We have been in Maine with family for 10 days and this is hands down the best lobster we have had. It was tender with melted butter, yum!

JJ's Snack Shack is hands down the best place to eat in the mid-coast area. Great tasting and imaginative food. Skip the sit down restaurants, which around here are pretty much all mediocre food and expensive prices and get your food here.

Appearances are deceiving -- this is a little gem. We had the fish and chips (awesome fries and yummy tartar sauce), pulled pork sandwich (very tasty) and a burger (very good). Reasonable prices. Personal service. Highly recommend for take out.

This Rockport gem is a diamond in the rough. Right across the street from the Claddagh Motel, near the town line with Rockland, JJs serves awesome seafood, burgers, dogs and sausages. Order food, it's worth the wait. We love it, 5 🌟.
