We ordered several thin crust pizzas to go and our crowd ate every last crumb. Perfect pizza especially the magic mushroom. Bread and salads also great.

The restaurant itself is a very small, charming space, with room for only one full row of tables. The pizza was fantastic. We ordered the Hawaiian (which my husband was initially skeptical about). It was delicious - just the right amount of pineapple to add a hint of sweetness without overwhelming everything else. Our kids split a pizza with bacon... More

The best pizza on the island. The price is great and the food was fabulous. The breadsticks were very unique. The restaurant is small and not good for bigger parties but the food is amazing.

We ordered carryout and the pizza was very good. Our kids/teens loved it and we would definitely order there again.

My family and I ate here Saturday night this past weekend. I learned about this pizza place on tripadvisor and thought we should check it out. First, this is a small place and it is cramped so go early. Second, it is worth it to visit if you have children because of the unique decorations and the very friendly staff... More

Both were well prepared and delicious. It a small, charming restaurant with an eclectic decor. The server was pleasant and efficient.... More

In search of pizza, we found CJ's after asking the guy working at the frozen treat shop on Mallery St. From the outside, the restaurant looks pretty tiny, but like a TARDIS, it's bigger on the inside. The narrow, long restaurant is a little dark on the inside and adorned with an array of Christmas lights and a variety of... More

After wintering for several years on SSI, we finally went to CJ's for dinner on 7 Jan 2017. We ordered a large thin crust pizza with sausage, pepperoni and green olives. The pizza was very good and served quickly. We also ordered two Coors light taps. The total tab was $24.12 before tip. The taps might be a bit high... More
