Since this is my second review in the last six months I don't want anyone to think that I have an interest in this restaurant, other than the food...but I have yet to be let down at this restaurant when it comes to quality meals. This time was no exception. Salad bar is always great, nice and full and fresh.... More

We've been going to DJ's for years - it is a great place: wonderful food, people, prices and ambiance. The food gets better all the time but is a traditional menu. Whenever we are able to get there, we always have a really fun time and leave with the thought to return again soon!

Busy restaurant, but the service was quick from the very friendly staff. Great salad bar and a large menu with a little bit of everying on it, plus lots of specials. The lighting is a bit dark, but one review mentioned it wasn't a family atmosphere. The back dining area, away from the bar, is fine for families. The prices... More

The menu provided many good choices. The server was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The food was properly prepared. It was simple and effective for a dinner in a small town. We had just spent 5 days dining in Boston, so it doesn't compare, but it's a safe bet and satisfying.

Consistency, consistency, consistency. Always good. Make a reservation during ski season, you'll need it.

The atmosphere was quiet and dark which we loved. I was happy to see a salad bar- those are hard to come by these days. I split a meal with a friend and we added on an extra salad bar and were surprised to see the cost- $10. Whoa! Other than that the prices were reasonable, the rolls were warm... More

This restaurant is NOT a family restaurant. The menu is limited and all of the food IS NOT offered in the dining room (ie: burgers, chicken, sandwiches...they are only offered at the bar) We went with our 3 children who were being very well behaved. The waitress was nice however the hostess / OWNER was terribly RUDE and just plain... More

We've been going to DJ's for years- decades, in fact. Bang for the buck, you can't beat it. The salad bar isn't fancy shmancy but it's really good. You know what you're going to get and there are many choices of ingredients. The prime rib is marvelous and the big cut is huge. The salmon is always good as is... More

I hate iceberg lettuce and that's basically all they had for lettuce. The salad bar was meager. You had to pay extra if you wanted a different vegetable with dinner.

Maybe this place was "ok" in the 80's. The salad bar was quite sad, small no microscopic and low quality unless you like only whit iceberg lettuce. The prices were high $17 for chicken or pork chop. Entrees didn't even come with a vegetable. I never go there again
