Great Dinner in Princeville

My wife and I had a Tuesday night dinner at CJs in Princeville, Kauai. It's located in a shopping area with a market and several other businesses. We had an outside table in calm balmy evening. Our server, Joe Mc, was friendly, courteous and efficient. They have a good sized menu with all kinds... read more

CJ's was recommended by a local so we thought we would try it out last night. After making a reservation we arrived to be seated out on the balcony which was pleasant enough. Unfortunately the bar across the path had some live music - a man and his guitar.. What we realised after about 20 minutes was that he only... More

CJs has been in Princeville Center for years. Some of the waiters have been there since it opened. Excellent steaks and salad bar. Fish also on menu. Reasonable prices in comparison to many of the other places in the area.

The food was really good. We had a party of 8 and all the dishes we ordered were great and they all came with a salad bar. The down point is that there was no kids menu so you are forced to share or order then something off the adult menu. Best food we ate all week!

We love this casual dining spot in Princeville. It reminds us an old fashioned supper club in Wisconsin. They have a good old fashioned salad bar and delicious prime rib. If you order a baked potato you get a carousel of sour cream, chives, fresh chives and bacon bits. They also have a great fresh fish selection (we love monchong)!... More

We had dinner here and both agree it is way overpriced for the food. The service was great but the salad bar and coconut shrimp were okay.

WOW, it's rare I have a meal this disappointing. I felt like I was ordering at Sizzler back home, yet the prices at $35 - $40 an entrée made that ridiculous. The fresh fish dishes were good, but not great. The appetizers were small and just ok. The only good thing about this place is location. Take the extra 10... More

A friend who lives here in Princeville recommended this restaurant. We can see why. The 8 oz prime rib was tasty and too much for one meal...it will make a great breakfast! The salad bar was fresh and refreshed as we were there a bit later than normal dinner. I was surprised to see a salad bar...first one in three... More
