We stopped here for lunch just after they opened. The staffing is somewhat light with only three people on duty. We were seated by the waiter, and there were five tables in use once we sat down. Everyone is friendly, and the food is delicious. My wife and I both had the California Burger, mine with a bun rather than... More

This restaurant is extremely mediocre. My husband had a steak which was flavorful but chewy. I've had jarred sauce that was better than the sauce on the pasta I had Waitress was good!

We ate here because it was close to our hotel and had a pet friendly patio. I wish we'd walked to the next restaurant down the street! We were told that they were busy and it would be a few minutes- no problem. They only had 1 waiter for the entire patio and the service was terribly slow, which I... More

We chose this place because it had a patio and is dog friendly. The food is delicious. I had a pulled pork and grilled cheese sandwich. The pulled pork was tender and they did not put too much bbq sauce on it. Instead they put a little bit of ranch dressing, which made it just right. Yummy French fries. My... More

We went to C J's at the recommendation of the manager where we stayed. We tried to go there for lunch but got there just as they were closing at 2:00. I'm so glad we went back that evening. My husband had the New York Strip Steak and he said it was one of the best steaks he's ever had...so... More

Nice atmosphere and staff. Slow service (only one waitress for half a dozen parties) but worth the wait. Dishes are prepared well with quality ingredients. A little pricey - $99 for the three of us. We were happy to dine here, and would come again.

We really enjoyed the food (warning - only wine & beer). I had the tarragon crab cake salad and it was delicious (they homemake all their salad dressings). We also had a burger, fries, & Mac & cheese with buffalo chicken. It was all good. I had a glass of red sangria & it was yummy. Service was very friendly... More

We were here during the Presidents Day Weekend so were happy when we were able to get a last minute reservation. However, they really shouldn't accept reservations if they're not prepared to handle a good size crowd. We waited in the reception area for 10 or 15 minutes before we saw anyone who worked there. Once we were seated, the... More
