We came to CJs with some trepidation after reading the mixed reviews, but we were staying on the north shore, and options were limited without a longer drive than we wanted to do. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great, I ordered my steak rare, and they actually served it rare! Service was friendly and attentive without being... More

The waiter informed us that the Beefeater sandwich is a favorite for lunch, so we both ordered it with a side order of onion rings. The sandwich comes with french fries. The sandwich was outstanding and more than enough for a hungry person. Also the onion rings were great. The beef was cut thin and very lean. I didn't understand... More

I had high expectations because we had been to so many amazing restaurants so far in Kauai. This was such a let down! Maybe our server was just having a bad day but YIKES!! Rude, rude, rude. When we had a question or asked for a recommendation he acted like it was such a hassle and like he was in... More

We were a group of six and stopped here for lunch. Our server was fast and attentive. I ordered the Shrimp Louie. It was very good and large enough for two, so we shared it. Others in our group ordered hamburgers and Philly Cheese sandwich. Their sandwiches were good and large servings. The prices were reasonable. We would eat here... More

Sorry, but this was one of the dirtiest restaurants I have ever entered. Wanted to leave but my husband wouldn't let me. Burgers were ok but I couldn't get past the food on the walls.

While driving in north Kauai and feeling hungry, we stopped at a mall in Princeville and found this delightful restaurant. I had a hamburger with all the trimmings, and my wife had a seafood salad. The hambuger was huge and delicious, and I could not put it down. It filled me so, it was my only meal for the day.... More

If it weren't for it's high profile location, they would not be in business. I've given this restaurant 4 opportunities to get it right. If you like plain, bland food then you've found the right place. The food options behind this restaurant are much - much better. Save your money - eat elsewhere.

We had a 5:30 dinner reservation here. Good ribs and mahi with a salad bar. The location in Princeville is very quiet and a nice place to have dinner,
