Seating ok. Salad bar comes with meal. We selected to share meal. Salad bar comes with a meal. Menu says eat all you can at salad bar just leave room for dessert. My husband went to salad bar. I ate a bite from his plate. Meal also comes with bread. When we got meal, we asked where our bread was.... More

We were greeted right away very friendly staff. The hot rolls were very good and we had a shrimp appetizer the was delicious. The salad bar was constantly replenished and very fresh. My husband had potato salad from the salad bar and thought it was one of the best. I had baked scallops with a crabmeat bread crumb topping that... More

This place was recommended to us by a shopkeeper in Weston. It meant backtracking from our destination but we decided to try it and were not disappointed. They have an abundant salad bar with a half a dozen dressing choices. The crab bisque off the special menu was very good. I had the chicken marsala and there were 3 chicken... More

We ate dinner here 2 nights. We ate from the bar menu. They offered a variety of choices on the bar menu (such as a hamburger and fries, chicken & fries) for under $10. It is mostly a local crowd. Not fancy, but tasty and you can't beat the price.

Have been going to DJ's for eons, and the food & salad bar just get better and better!! Have never left hungry, but almost always leave there with a doggie bag. Their portions are large - to say the least. Some of their servers have been there for years and years, and they are the best bunch ever!!!

D.J.'s has an exterior you could almost walk right past in the center of Ludlow, its storefront windows festooned with an ever changing dusty melange of antique items (toys, tools, posters, etc. from a bygone 50's or 60's) arranged in a seasonal theme. The interior is dark and dingy. But the food is pretty good, with large portions of high... More

We were disappointed in our meal at this restaurant. While the steaks were good, the chicken Kiev was not eatable and my husband got sick from the little he did eat. The selection is limited and they were out of the specials by 7:30 on a Thursday night. The wait staff was very nice and competent. We were told the... More

A simple menu with classic American dishes. I enjoyed a salmon with crabmeat and rice. My boyfriend had chicken with French fries. The portions were definitely big. The restaurant has a nice relaxed low-key atmosphere and our server, Ramona, was very attentive and friendly. I did find the music pretty different. I the span of an hour we heard Sammy... More
