Description: JJ's Diner is a 1950s-themed licensed family restaurant, operating from 6:00 am until 10:00 pm daily. Our menu features a wide range of home-cooked items to tempt all tastes, including a selection of sandwiches, wraps, juicy burgers, salads and hearty dinners. Favourites include our clubhouse sandwich, roast turkey dinner, fish & chips, hamburgers and thick milkshakes. Be sure to save room for dessert! Indulge in a banana split, an old-fashioned sundae or a slice of homemade pie. JJ's Diner features an affordable Children's Menu for those 12 years old and under. Take a step back in time, put a dollar in the jukebox and listen to the songs of yesteryear while you dine.

We have been here a few times. It's basically what you would expect...a very old fashioned 50's diner with typical burgers and fries and shakes. I've had the burgers a few times. They are good....not great, but good. Really the main attraction at this place are the shakes and the desserts, as people have mentioned. The coconut cream pie is awesome! Overall a fun spot. You probably won't want to go here every week, but once in a while (maybe once a year) it's a good change of pace.

While staying in Sussex, there were very few places to eat that wasn't fast food. Overall, the food quality was as expected. The surprise was how good their desserts were! We had the chocolate cream pie and coconut cream pie and both were delicious! The dining area was neat and tidy, however the bench seats in the booths were a little low, like you were a kid eating at the "adult's table".

Highly recommended for a quick bite and definitely dessert!

When traveling along New Brunswick's Hwy. 1 between Moncton and Saint John there are few decent restaurants just off the road. JJ's is good comfort food,reasonable prices with pleasant staff. It's a quick in and out to continue on your trip.

This was our first visit to this diner, just passing through. We each had a late morning breakfast special. The food was good, tasty and quite generous. Staff was very courteous. The prices were very reasonable also. We recommend this diner.

We loved the atmosphere. Loved the burgers. Didn't love the fact that it was $16.00 after adding fries to our meal. The shake was strawberry ice cream for $6.00 so that was a fail. Won't ever be back. The price doesn't equal what you get.
