good food, but a little on the slow side. The hours seem to change alot. They could have better hours.

As with everything in Gore Bay it closed at 7pm. The food was awesome and great prices. The decor was cool. Very clean and neat in the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly. The bathrooms were clean. Highly recommend it

The outside is a fright. Inside is clean and comfortable. Fish and chips were less than I expected although the pie was really good. Service was friendly.

This restaurant has good food in an establishment frequented by locals. A colourful and comfortable, but not trendy place, to experience local life and get a good meal.

Fish and chips here is a regular occasion for us every time we visit Gore Bay. Great portions - batter on the fish is old school style and the chips are yummy!

Ordered the hungry man breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. Waitress was friendly and did all she could for us despite being the only one working at the time.

We stopped in B&J's for a late lunch arriving only 20 minutes before closing, the welcome we received was warm, the food was prepared fresh to order - meaning we were still eating after closing but the staff were happy to chat and make further travel recommendations for us - including how to get to a high lookout on the...

We go to BJ's quite often when we are at our cottage. We go to other restaurants on Manitoulin as well but BJ's if by far the best. The pricing is the same no matter what restaurant we go to. The place is always spotless. They have amazing omelets. I have been there for lunch and dinner as well and... More

One breakfast! Bacon, eggs, home fries, toast, tomato juice and tea. That's all I had, total $19.20!!!!! Everything else (service, cleanliness, selection) was ok, not fantastic, pretty much what I would expect.
