Great mix of pub food and upper scale food

CJ's has an interesting menu. You can get your typical pub food like cheese fries and buffalo wings, but you can also get seared ahi tuna or a steak. Either way, the food is always very good and they have a good beer selection. There is often live music on the weekends last I checked.

After moving to Cheshire back in 2005 I avoided Sparrows for quite a long time thinking it was just a dive bar. Finally a friend who was familiar with the place brought me in for lunch. Now I'm sorry for those wasted years! Sparrows is a warm, comfortable neighborhood watering hole with a surprisingly good menu. There is plenty of... More

My husband and I just tried CJ Sparrows this past week as we had a Living Social coupon. We could NOT have been MORE impressed with the food, drink, and the service was exceptional. Our waitress was beyond friendly and personable and gave us great recommendations. The menu has everything from burgers (amazing!!!) to ahi tuna and everything in between.... More

I live in a neighboring state, so when friends took me to C.J. Sparrows, I was delightfully surprised. The food tastes great, bar service is fast and friendly, its affordable, and the staff are knowledgeable and welcoming. I always try to stop in whenever I am in town. If you're in the area, I highly suggest you stop in. They... More

Seven people met here for a mini-reunion. We were given a great table in the back. Everyone had a good time with good food. The oriental salad is hardly pub food served in a large wooden bowl big enough for a family! The special appetizer we had was the bomb. Great plaace for singles, couples or friends in a cozy...

The martinis are great, I like to see what comes out of the kitchen before I order, usually that helps me decide. Not this time everything that came out of the kitchen looked great. I had the onion soup yummy. I then had the pastrami really good and I love the cole slaw. The peanut butter pie is amazing, I... More

C. J. Sparrow's sits in a small strip mall and is almost not visible from the street. Parking is limited in the front but there is plenty around back. The overall experience with the food was very good. Sparrows has a surprisingly large menu and a list of daily specials that exceeds what one would expect in a small pub... More

Joined a family group for a birthday celebration with reservations at 7. Love the atmosphere here: low ceilings, very homey feel, room for a band and a bit of a dance floor. I ordered the seared ahi tuna with seaweed salad; my husband had the chili appetizer and the fried smoked gouda. I sampled both; they were fantastic. My tuna... More
