This restaurant had very good food, but one of our party had a food allergy, and they were unprepared to deal with it. The booths were large and fit six easily, but the room was too dark. Kid meals were $7.95 and adult meals began at $11.95.

Glad that you enjoyed your meal, Heather! We have a variety of dishes on our menu, so I'm surprised and sorry to hear that we weren't able to accommodate your friend's food allergy. I assume that you let someone on our staff know about the issue, but if not, we're always happy to provide as many details as you need... More

Have eaten here a number of times over the years, on our visits to nearby Cavendish. The welcome is always bright and friendly, and the food is always great. The salad bar is one of the best I have ever seen and tasted, but be careful the portions are very generous on the main courses. Great place, will be back... More

My husband and I were in Ludlow for the Harley Davidson Owner's Group Rally. DJ's had decorated their window with a Harley Davidson theme - very nice. The hostess was very nice and gave us a table at the window so we could watch the bike parade. Our server was terrific, and brought a board with the specials on it.... More

DJ's is my 1st Ludlow option with kids, on date-night with friends, with visiting family. Great menu to please everyone (2 of my favorites are the duck & chops), wonderful specials, well-stocked salad bar. Good value, casual but comfy 'local decor', nice booths, solid service. Everyone leaves happy.

Good solid American style food. Large portions, good salad bar. Very reasonable prices. Bar area had TVs for watching sports and a lighter fare menu is available Sunday- Friday non holiday - that's the best meal deal in town. Atmosphere is dated but for some it's nostalgic.

Always have a good meal at Dj's. Cooked to order. Great steaks, seafood and burgers. Many specials each night. Good prices. We love the salad bar. They make great homemade rolls. Meatballs are a great appetizer.

DJ's is a local favorite restaurant for many reasons. Aside from it being open all year round (important for locals in a ski resort area), you get good value for your dollar. The food is good, the salad bar is nice and the portions are generous. They can accomodate every dietary need too. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and... More

Ate here on a snowy March 2014 evening after a gnarly ride from southern Vermont. Hostess was very friendly, waitress was knowledgeable, responsive, attentive and friendly. Restaurant was rather quiet that evening, service was excellent. I thought my dinner, broiled scallops, was good but didn't quite meat the expectations set by my server. Combined with the price which I thought... More
