Food very good, service very good, beware of the 2 for 1 advertised on the drinks. I.e. Small draft beer $4.50, then they give you a second one free. Most expensive draft in town. Other house drinks, priced likewise
Go for breakfast

A great diner on the Vero Beach field. We flew in for breakfast and not disappointed.. great food and great atmosphere. CJ’s is not just a small on field diner but it’s a rather large restaurant and serves all kinds of meals. Its not just available to transient pilots but also available to the general public.. its always fun to park your airplane right in front and walk a few meters into the restaurant where you can have a apron view of the airport.

With regards to the poor review about lots of Kids.. I'm sure Mr Cannon had their best interest and safety in mind.. as the airport ramp with live moving aircraft is very easily accessible and a very dangerous area if your not careful.

Called and made a group reservation for 11 kids (10 and 11 year old girls, not small children) and 20 adults. 20 minutes after they took our reservation they called back and cancelled stating Mr. Cannon did not want kids in the restaurant! What kind of place is this? Advertised as a casual family restaurant and then canceling a reservation quite rudely!

CJ Cannons is on a local airfield, so the place is decorated with model airplanes.

Food was good and moderately priced. It seems busy for the middle of nowhere, but a great place for old friends to meet.

Salads were plentiful, service attentive but place was noisy.

We had lunch at C.J. Cannons today after trying many of the much more expensive restaurants on the island. The menu has something for almost every taste. I had grilled liver and onions and my wife had pot roast. They also have steaks at reasonable prices. Their website has a complete menu with prices.

For aviation buffs, there are many interesting displays going back to the time this airport was a Navy training field.

The crowd included pilots, student pilots, employees of the Piper Aircraft plant as well as many locals and snowbirds.

The service was prompt and friendly and they had a two for one special on beer (not for pilots hopefully:).

Upon departure I inquired as to how long they had been in that location and was told that 2014 is their 30th year.

We plan to return.
