Chicken fish shrimp tastes very good as though cooked at home... seasoned very well. Worth the price.

Catfish is fresh and moist, popcorn shrimp doesn't taste Frozen or like freezer burn, even though it probably is frozen. Tasty sauces at the table, good service, sweet tea was ON POINT, not bitter but STRONG. Overall 5/5 will be back. You get what you paid for.

Had a late lunch here. Being the first time I tried a couple of the many fried menu items. Chicken wings were fried the way I like, fried shrimp, crab cake, hush puppies and onion rings, all good. That was a lot of fried stuff. I will be back again when the fried food urge hits. 🍗

The chicken was good, fried a little too hard for my liking but was still good. Fries were tasty and the price was very reasonable. A little cold in the dining room. Overall, I enjoyed it. I will be returning.

Fish sandwich was great. So was the Mac and cheese. Chicken legs were good too but too crunchy for my taste. I’d return for fish items and hot dogs. The restaurant is pork free. That’s nice for those who are concerned.

Portions are big and the price is appropriate. Didn't take long to receive your order once placed. Fixed and cleaned the place up. Looks good and the food is good too. Parking can be a bit tight. Good place.

Eat at this place often as a special treat. Don't eat fried food much but when I do this is the place. Its not super fancy but its exactly the right thing you need sometimes. Inside is really, really clean and always give right amount of sauces 😋

I was highly impressed with the great tasting Oysters and Hushpuppy Platter along with the cleanliness of the restaurant. Service was great, polite and professional. I hate there aren't any of these restaurants in the Washington, D. C. Metro Area.

I was very pleased with the amount of food for the price. I ordered popcorn shrimp, fish, yams and collards for $11.99. However, the food was very bland. I've eaten there several times before with no complaints so I'm not sure why the food wasn't seasoned. Once I added Old Bay, I enjoyed it. The yams were dry, unsweetened and tasted like they were poured straight out of the can. I love yams so even if I decide to go back, I will not order again. So disappointing.

Very good nice sized Wings cuz I really wanted some wings. Never been there before first time, impressed. I give it a 4-star because it needs just a little seasoning, I know everybody don't like seasoning but just a little bit of seasoning to their food. Collard greens I had need a little bit of seasoning as well. I said that because I'm a Southern girl nothing over powering just a little season.

I enjoyed the catfish sandwich with fries. I requested tarter sauce but they forgot to put it in the bag. Luckily, the sandwich was great without the tarter sauce. The fries taste similar to Old Bay fries. Pretty good, affordable prices. The store workers practiced social distancing and utilized PPE. They sanitized as they swiped your card and wore masks. Thank you for thinking of all of our safety. If am ever driving through Durham again I'll definitely stop there again.

Decent seafood at decent prices fried fish and jumbo shrimps were pretty tasty could've been a bit hotter especially after having too wait but hey it was flavorful and crispy so no biggie although I wasn't too crazy about the sides. If your in the mood for seafood and don't wanna break the bank check them out. 3 stars. ⭐⭐⭐

Good Food, get a great amount for the price. Just have to ask for the specials outside of looking at the menu. I have a menu at home but if you don't know the specials , you wont get the best deals. If you call in be sure to check the specials.

My first time going there and it was really good. I got filet catfish and scallops with slaw and fries. Everything was delicious. I will be going back whenever I'm here in Raleigh visiting my daughter

I'm an ardent supporter of local business over chains and franchises, so I'm happy to leave a recommendation for J&J Fish & Chicken. The portion sizes are impressive... more than I expected for the cost. The food was good, no complaints. My family and I will be visiting here often.

This place is a sleeper. The food is seasoned to perfection. The coleslaw was so delicious, catfish, and applesauce was excellent. My wife had the ice tea, and said it was the best, I had lemonade and it was tasty. I will go backOH Yeah!!!

Being from Illinois I expected better. They don't season their fish, it's just fried. Many people seem to think just because something is fried that it's good, which is completely false. It was alright, fish was very bland. The sides are very very small, literally like half a cup. And they don't have mild sauce which is crazy! If you're from Illinois or have been to the real JJs up there then I wouldn't recommend this place because you will be disappointed. I'm only giving 3 stars because the people were polite.

Food is Fair to OK but it is not the same as JJ’s In Chicago!!! Same franchise as Chicago fish shacks but eons different than the great Chi-Town stores. The collard greens probably canned)and other veggies are tasteless, the potato salad tastes right outta some local store and it is not good. Your best side is their garden salad which is crisp and tastu.

What a wonderful surprise! Late night stop driving through nc. If you haven't been, GO! Food was very good... definitely not your average fish and chicken restaurant. Fish was fried whole, delish! You won't be disappointed.

It's ok not the same like the other j &j fish and chicken and they dont have the crack seasoning that the other restaurant put on their food and their price is more expensive and they don't have the 20 piece shrimp fries and Texas bread for 9.99 over here and they needs to calm down on the salt... when I go back to visit the real J &J fish and chicken Ga I will be happy and other 3 plates and put as much of that special seasoning in a plastic container... they need call corporate for the seasoning

This is a neighborhood favorite. The fish is very tasty without any added toppings. Customers can order many different types of fish. They also sell chicken wings for a surf and turf type of meal. One note: the fish comes whole, head included just in case you need to know

I am so glad that I live 5-minutes from J & J Fish & Chicken! The wait in the drive-thru is well-worth it. The food is always hot, tasty, and fresh. The prices are reasonable for the amount of food. The variety is huge--from chicken wings to fish to fried gizzards! I have even gotten my mom to become a weekly customer, though she lives 25 minutes away from the restaurant. She said, "It's worth the drive!"

A simple order and seat seafood restaurant. The service was good. The fish and shrimp were both good. I would go back and try something different. The price is very reasonable.

The pop corn shrimp are good especially with a splash of lemon juice and some hot sauce (yum), not a huge fan of the hush puppies, their missing something, and the Thai chicken wings weren't my jam here. The catfish sandwich was good, and their lemonade is delicious!

The fish here has always been great (worth driving from Garner)! Adding the new interior Decor changes is a definite plus.

Years ago, this was my spot! Nearly 10 years later, this place has new management and a newer look. I always come for the whiting because it's the only place I know to get it in these parts. I do miss their fried mushrooms, unless I overlooked them. Friendly and attentive service but most others prefer using the drive thru window. Honestly though, 4.5 stars!

Open late, placed my order at nearly 11pm and the gentleman was courteous & knowledgeable. At pickup, my semi particular order was perfect. Everything was fresh, crispy, seasoned lovely, and not at all greasy. Of the items we tried, the jumbo shrimp was the standout. Delicious! And for the size, amount, and quality(no poop)- extremely reasonably priced. Second, the Gizzards. An impulse add but I’m so glad I did. I feel like I never had gizzards prepared properly until trying these. Then, Gyros! Gotta love late night Gyros. Slightly light on the protein, but still delicious, fresh, and presented nicely. The sides were fresh and as good as anticipated- great slaw, seasoned fries, your basic green beans, baked Mac & cheese was creamy & good as is; I could see maaaybe someone salt ‘n peppering their own but it was good. Strange hush puppies but they did the trick- Woof! Shhhh, here.. I’ll be returning very soon to fill the craving. Thank you for such a fantastic meal and professional service.
