This restaurant has it all. Great location, laid back style, fabulous food, reasonable prices, and friendly service. They serve both Mexican and family style food. The quessdillas and enchiladas are really good here. However, the hidden gem is their lightly battered Cod Fish Fry. The basket comes with a huge side of delicious French fries and five pieces of fish. The batter is light and never greasy. I felt I could indulge both of my cravings on this night, so I ordered a side of their rice as an extra. The rice was perfect with just the right amount of spiciness. Both the Mexican menu and their regular menu has a lot of variety. The menu and the lively atmosphere are worth a trip to Sister Bay. I can recommend Mary and Erin as two of the best waitresses there. And don't forget to order the Fish Fry basket. You won't be disappointed!

Menus selection ok. Mexican/American choices. Perch sandwich serving was smaller than expected...3 tiny filets on a big bun with lots of lettuce...could hardly taste the fish. Nothing else came with, alacarte for anything else.

Been wanting to try JJ's for some time now. Cozy ambience. Nice staff. Menu is lots of Mexican with plenty of American. Locals love the various daily specials. I had a combo perch and whitefish dinner---the whitefish was better than lobster! Our waitress brought us free nachos and salsa since it was our first time eating there, even though we ordered American food. Plenty of parking, but it was off-season. This is the place to eat in Door County if you are dining on a budget. Had a delicious frozen Margarita, too. And awesome sweet potato fries. Will be back!
