We found this place by accident. Food was good but a little overpriced. Atmosphere and ambiance were nice. However, I would like to see more and better selections on their wine list. This place is good and has the potential to be great!

JJ's has a venue and access to wine lovers that would allow them to showcase truly unique wines. However, it appears little thought goes into the selections and price is not reasonable.

We didn't know what to expect when we walked into JJ's and saw the wine dispensers on the walls, but it turned out to be one of the coolest wine concepts we've ever encountered. Being able to walk around and have our own tasting was great, as was the outdoor seating. If you like wine, and want some fresh air,... More

We had time to kill before dinner so we stopped to see what this was about. Passed by it more than a few times but never had time to stop. Interesting concept. You give them your credit card in exchange for a self-serve card that allows you to sample (1 oz.) or buy wine in 4 or 8 ounce servings.... More
