Went to CJ's on a last minute recommend from our Condo. We had spent approx. 45 min to an hour in the bar waiting for the dining room to open having drinks and an appetizer - Where the service was EXCELLENT! As soon as the server found out that we wanted to split an entree, he almost couldn't even be... More

We were staying at the Westin Princeville Dec 7 to the 15th of 2014 and stopped by CJ's to eat and they talked us into the prime rib It was simply amazing. Their salad bar was very good as well. We were referred to this place by fellow owners at the Westin that had eaten the lunch prime rib sandwich... More

After spending the day hiking, we returned to our room hungry and CJ's was recommended by the HBR staff. The prime rib was fabulous and we enjoyed the best Mai Tai's we had in Kauai.

Even though the salad bar is nothing fancy, I rather enjoyed it. Being on vacation for a week means too many full meals, so I really liked the option of a lighter salad option at CJ's. We mostly took our meals home as leftovers and just had the salad bar for dinner.

We stayed in Princeville almost within jogging distance to CJ's and Princeville shopping center so it was a no brainer to eat here. The steaks and fish specials were fantastic. If you order a bake potato ($1) extra, they serve it with a spinning dish of bacon bits, sour cream and green onions. The salad bar is basic, lettuce, tomatoes,... More

Okay restaurants on Kauai are pricey. But CJs overdoes it. A salad bar is included, and contains less than Round Table Pizza on the mainland. My catch of the day (ahi) was small but cooked properly. The jasmine rice scoop was cold, sticky, unappetizing. Maybe their beef is better, but service and food left me cold.

Attended this spot a couple of times while in Princeville for about a month. Service is disjointed - your drinks must be ordered from someone other than your server - and there's a salad bar. If you attended for a late dinner it's pretty tired - I opted out. My friends stated the steaks were solid - excellent actually. I... More

The meat here is quite good - and really the star attraction, so worth ordering. The rest, well, it's fine. I liked my scampi-style shrimp well enough - it was flavorful and not over-cooked - and especially liked the fact you can get a smaller portion meal of the shrimp or a few other of the most popular options. The... More

We have been patronizing CJ's since 1984 (was "Chuck"s Steakhouse") and have always found the food good, service great and friendly. Last time we were sitting in the patio and saw a local fisherman delivering three large wahoo, which instantly became the fresh fish of the day - it was delicious! Last week we went there on our last day... More

The service was extremely good, staff extremely friendly, but the food lacked the other restaurants in the area. The atmosphere isn't anything special for what Kauai has to offer, and the food is over priced.
