My husband and I decided to try CJ's this past Sunday, 10/30/2016. There's plenty of parking, but the lot was a bit dark, could've used more lighting. When we walked in, we were seated right away. The restaurant is very clean, but is a bit dated, yet very nicely decorated. It almost felt as if I was a guest in... More

Low key atmosphere with the freshest seafood you'll ever eat. Servers are friendly without that overbearing perkiness that is so annoying. Prices are competitive and I can never eat all they give you.

CJ's has good seafood served simply in a somewhat dated atmosphere. You get good value for the money. Nothing fancy but a quiet family atmosphere. We eat here every few months.

This is the second time we have dined at CJ'S and had a bad meal. Both times I ordered the whole belly clams. This past experience was Friday evening, my dinner arrived and I did not notice at first that the pile of clams were actually clam strips mixed with only 4 whole belly clams! My husband ordered hot lobster... More

Stopped in with friends. Very good sea food. I had baked stuffed shrimp. Just as good as at the beach. Plenty of food. They open at 11:30 AM. They don't take credit cards, cash only.

There is even an early-bird special. Many of their meals are good values but some defy logic. The surf-n-turf for example. I almost ordered it until I realized I could literally buy one full seafood dinner and one full steak dinner for less than the surf-n-turf. That doesn't make it a bad restaurant though. I have been there many times... More
