About Us

JJ’s originated when young sweethearts Jacob and Jess decided to take on a restaurant together in the picturesque, south coast town of Narooma, NSW. JJ’s Steakhouse had a reputable name around town for their great food and a family friendly dining experience. After years went by, unfortunately health issues got in the way and the decision was made to step out of the industry and focus on family. Jacob spent his time working for local suppliers around Batemans Bay and Jess looked after their son Malcom. Without Jess, and the ideas that flowed providing the inspirational fuel, the decision to take on another restaurant would not have happened.

For years Jacob had a dream of getting his siblings together to build a business as each had something unique to offer. Fortunately for Jacob, he was raised in a family of 9 children and the siblings had each taken to independence at quite a young age. Jacob, David and Daniel united to come up with a plan for the design tender for The New Marina Restaurant. David had a foot in the door with his business ‘Unique Carpentry Creation and Design’ helping to build the entire restaurant structure, from the design, to completion.

At this point the brothers had put in for the lease of the Moorings Restaurant in the growing Tomakin area, and were unsure about the Marina being approved, knowing there was quite a bit of competition. However much to their surprise the owners of the Marina property were so intrigued by the ideas of these young lads, that both restaurants were approved at the same time, to be set up and trading by Christmas 2015!

Joining the force came the sister, Evelyn who relocated back to Batemans bay from England so she could join the exciting new family adventure. Born and bred local Batemans Bay siblings reunited with help from all the family, Jess and Son/Nephew Malcom.

The JJ’s team endeavour to serve up some of the best local seafood and produce.
