Great food, small but warm

They serve really great food here and have a diverse Menu. Service is great and the restaurant, although small has a very mountain atmosphere. Like C J's

Espectacular!!! We'll come back!!! We had a very good dinner and tasted one of the most delicious dessert in the world. It's a small restaurant but is a big place to stay.

This is a wonderful homely place. The menu had flair without being over the top and focused on local, in-season dishes. They had some unusual sangria combinations which I tried but for me they didn't beat the original red wine recipe. I wish we'd had room for desert!

We treated ourselves to a restaurant lunch while camping for the week at Devils Postpile. Arrived after 1:00pm and many tables were open inside and all tables but one were open outside, but were told there was a 5-10 min wait. We finally sat down outside and ordered a veggie burger and buffalo burger. Both were very good and the... More

We came here on the first night of our stay for dinner on a recommendation from our receptionist, and I'm glad we did. As a starter we chose CJ's signature soft pretzel pieces with dips, along with local microbrews, a great start. Next we had burgers (made from certified Angus beef according to the menu). The 'burger battle burger' ranks... More

Dinner was great. Went back twice. Chocolate lava cake is great. However lunch today was poor- undercooked fish, seemed under staffed and waited over 45 minutes for food. Not very consistent.

Waited a while for a table. Met family already at the bar. They had drinks. I finally asked for a drink 15-20 mins after we had been there. Paid for the drinks at the table. Had dinner. Never received my change for the drinks! Waitress received a large tip since I never received my change from a $20

It seemed all the tables were full. Service was a little spotty. We both had the lentil soup which I thought was a bit salty and I'm one to like salty things. My fish and chips was good and my wife enjoyed her small steak. It was just a steak and potato so we ordered some steamed broccoli to finish... More

Mammoth rolls up the sidewalks early. Most restaurants close by 9PM and it is hard to find good clean food. I had the Italian Salad and my son had a huge Burger Battle burger. Both were better than average. Friendly service but seemed overwhelmed by the crowd that night.
