Because i am a native to Ludlow, you may say that i am biased to a local establishment, but if you like the visits in Vermont you must go to D J's Restaurant for an evening out. Make sure you order off the specials board for the day and especially look for their seafood specials. The salmon is always great,... More

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.
