You certainly don't get cheated on the portions served here. The oyster PoBoy my companion ordered filled her up and she could not even eat the bread roll it was served on. The pescatore was full of scallops, shrimp, and clams, not overcooked to a rubbery consistency, but easily chewed. The sauce was extremely bland, devoid of spices. If you... More

When we are hungry for seafood this our place to go. We order the Fried Mariner's Platter and the Charlie's Fried Seafood Platter......always awesome. Platters are loaded with yummy seafood. We always take some home because there's to much to eat. Only place that we know of that brings your meal on two plates. Large plate has seafoods, tartar &... More

A friend and I ate there on an early Friday evening, the waitresses was very pleasant, and our food and drinks arrived promptly. I had the fried clams and my date had the baked haddock both were very good. I've been occasionally going there for several years with consistently good results. Go there for the food, not the atmosphere!

We have been going to C.J.'s for a long time. What you order makes a difference in the quality of the meal. They specialize in sea food. This time we ordered shrimp scampi and the baked fish. The scampi consisted of six fairly large shrimp and was cooked utterly perfect. The fish was also perfect. We ordered from the "before... More

Went with a friend for dinner about a year ago and haven't been back since. They had some crazy atm machine right inside the door, so I believe they don't take credit cards. Wasn't very busy and food came quickly, but the onion rings were not good at all and the salad was very sad. The only saving grace was... More

Four of us ate here on a weekend evening. They were friendly and courteous, but must have been short of help that evening. There was not that many folks in the restaurant, but we had a pretty long wait for a table, and then a fairly long wait for our dinners. The food was OK. This restaurant is known for... More

From 3:00 to 5:00 every day they have early bird specials for $7.95 and $8.95. Comes with hot rolls, soup, 2 sides and dessert (orders must be placed by 5:00). We chose off this menu but the 2 soups offered did not appeal to us so we opted to pay extra for clam chowder. It turned out to be more... More

I have read two reviews of this restaurant and my friends refused to buy the bad review I told them about, and insisted that we go there on a trip that brought us nearby. . Personally I would say that the entryway by the bar does not smell fresh as a daisy, but don't write off the food once you... More

This is a fish house. Went twice, both times the fish had an odd taste and odor. Couldn't eat it. The decor is what you would expect at a seafood restaurant. Ship wheels, buoys and all the rest. Dark and dingy.
