Today took a Bishop friend and her daughter-in-law from Virginia to CJ's. We had a fabulous lunch. The french fries are freshly made from potatoes, not frozen baked, the hamburger cooked perfectly sitting on a delightful bun. $8.00 lunch special. The price is unbelievable. The bathroom is lovely and the environment is very clean. On a lovely day sit outside... More

So my extended family visited CJs this week for dinner. Let me start by saying our waiter Cody was plenty nice but aside from that, it was horrible from the start: 1. Our Salads and Soup took 30 Minutes to get to our table. People who sat after us, received their salads, soups, aps before us? Makes no sense as... More

When on vacation, we expect an experience while eating out. This was drab. No seasoning on the steak, lasagne so-so. We grill at home much better than this. Giant let-down. Pass on this place.

CJ's won the local Best Burger contest last week, and the award was well-deserved. The menu isn't too long, but the choices hit just about anything you'd like. Salads, sandwiches, burgers, and home-made desserts. Casual and friendly atmosphere. This couple really cares about their guests. AND it's one of the few spots west of the Mississippi to get some Cincinnati... More

I think my daughter and I are going to make CJ's a yearly tradition. We ate here last year and knew we would again this year when we came up for a family vacation. Love the atmosphere. The food is great. Love the owner. She really makes you feel special. Can't wait until we come up again next year!

No other comments needed in my opinion. Great atmosphere, great staff and most important, great gastronomic experience. A very nice surprise in our journey to Yosemite Park. Highly recommended.

Wow! Every part of our meal here was unbelievably perfect. The service was excellent, the food was amazing, and the chef came out to great us and share the nights specials. Don't miss this special treat if you stay in Mammoth Lake or are even just passing through. You won't be sorry!

From the outside it appears as though some building work is going on - so hopefully temporary as I may have just driven elsewhere had I not read some reviews beforehand. However, once inside it's a pleasant little restaurant. Service was top notch, even saw Jason (owner and chef) appear a couple of times to pick up the slack when... More

We had a nice family meal at CJs. Juan, the waiter, made us feel very welcome. The yellow fin tuna appetiser is worth a try as was the home made ice cream. Not bad.

We popped in this restaurant as we saw that it looked busy and thought, why not! We were met by a fella called Doug who was really helpful and welcoming. He showed us to a table and gave a 5 star service throughout. The food itself was really good, I ordered a Buffalo Burger (which was really good) and I... More
