Good home cooked diner feel meals. Different specials every day. Nice booths around the outside of the room with a lunch counter too.

This restaurant is sadly very disappointing, it's supposed to be a great dining facility and the food is always gross , the staff is generally unhelpful , the consistent turn over of cooking staff also says to me that they don't treat their employees very well. The reason this was a business lunch was because when choosing take out or... More

This is a very nice (a" workingman's" type of place) eatery - serves Breakfast, Lunches, Dinners. A varied menu that suits all palates; food is well prepared and presented by courteous wait staff who will strive to meet your specific tastes. Prices are very reasonable. There is a large private banquet room in the lower level and a separate dining... More

We eat here regularly. Sometimes for the special but also enjoy the stromboli, hot turkey sandwich, lasagna (huge portion and excellent sauce), and the reuben just to name a few favorites. Always pleasant waitstaff as well.

We made the mistake of choosing VJs for dinner tonight. Our expirience was HORRIBLE!!! Let's begin with the nasty table display of the "specials" a bunch of congealed stuff in bowls, yuck! Our friend ordered the turkey dinner, it came out cold. My roast beef dinner was total mush, the consistency of baby food. The mashed potatoes were a rock... More

Recently ate here for the first time while visiting family. Have eaten at all nearby restaurants in the past. This is a great casual restaurant with a very extensive menu, all good at low prices. It is both kid and adult-friendly; our waitress was wonderful. We sat in the lower level, which was quieter. It is a favorite with the... More

For the past three years or so we have visited VJ's while in Hamilton NY. We always go on a Friday night, and if you get there early, there's no wait, but it seems like a popular local establishment. There are posted daily specials and a full menu ranging from sandwiches and burgers to full dinners. There is even a... More

We live about 4 miles from VJ's and use it as our go to place on a night out of the kitchen. Standard diner fare, hot turkey sandwich, burgers, meatloaf, all with decent prices. Service is good and friendly. Pizza to go is best in town. We always leave full and smiling. If you are in the area of Colgate... More

Our son, who lives in Hamilton, recommended we try this when we came to visit him. He loves their garlic knots and their cheese steak sandwiches. My husband and I ordered the same dishes. Everything was good, and our sandwiches were too big for any of us to finish! We had hoped to try their peanut butter pie, but they... More
