Everything was great.We stayed in the Bungalow part of The palms. Small, tight room but the service made up for everything. Can't wait to go back. We saved CJ's for last-great food and people. Absolutely will go back for more!!!

Whether you're staying for a weekend or coming for a day trip, CJ's is a must when in Ocean Beach. It's located right by the ferry drop off and has a great menu with tons of options. The staff is great and extremely accommodating. All...we're wearing masks and making sure other patrons were following the dining rules. They even set up a patio outside to enjoy their rocket fuels and zippies outdoors.More

Stopped here on recommendation of the hotel staff. Was weary due to the first time being out due to COVID, but staff made sure individuals wore masks. Also had an online menu, so no need to touch additional items. Rocket Fuel was delicious and had...good food options for adults and children. I had the chicken caesar wrap and the seasoning on the fries was great! Again, loved the rocket fuel! Potato skins were also amazing!More

Me and my friends came here to get a drink every night of our stay! The rocketfuel is something everyone on fire island needs to try!! The service is excellent everyone that works there is so friendly. We ended up getting food here at least...once a day! The owner also owns the palms hotel, so it was the same great service here as well as at the hotel ! If you’re going to fire island you have to head to CJs as your first stop.More

The birthplace of the original rocket fuel. The place gets pretty packed. The food is moderately priced for fire island and is pretty good.
