“Great dinner & entertainment”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Went to EJ's with family and friends and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent. I would recommend the fresh fish special which changes regularly. This particular night the special was Black Sea Bass which was awesome! Our server, Jake, was friendly & offered good service. They offer locally brewed draft beer that rivals any microbrew we've tried in Ashevlle!
We'd suggest the dining room for dinner and the lounge for entertainment. On a separate night we heard a good duo that played a variety of songs from OAR to Matchbox 20.
If you are looking for casual dining and excellent food, we'd highly recommend EJ's

“Unexpected Fine Food Dining”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

We were spending the night at a fabulous bed and breakfast in chambersburg and wanted a nice meal. I read all the trip advisor reviews for the area restaurants but really wanted a place with great food and some healthy options. When we arrived at EJs it appears like a local dive on the side of the main road. Once we entered the staff was very nice and we were seated on side opposite bar side with white table cloths and the dinner crowd which was quite a few folks. If you want fancy furnishings the white table cloth is about where that begins and ends as you are seated on older metal legged plastic cushion chairs and there isn't anything particularly pretty about inside of the building despite its obvious age. However and this is a big however, get over your snobby self because in every other way this place is awesome! The waiter was great and when we asked a soup question he ran and brought a "taste test" which would've been an actual portion in the city. The food was amazing!! I had the seafood combination and the portion was very generous and for dessert we both got different pieces of cake and by pieces I mean slabs, heavenly heavenly slabs. If you're going through his area, try EJs. It rocks!

“Love it.”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We dine at EJ's often and always have great food. We were just there this past Saturday for Wiener Schnitzel and Sauerbraten, and it was an amazing Oktoberfest meal. Pat's seafood specials are always cooked to perfection, and his filet mignon and crab au gratin are also on our list of favorites. Jake, Kim and the rest of the staff are top notch, and work hard to make everyone's dining experience relaxing and memorable. We recommend EJ's to everyone.

“Nice atmosphere, great tastes”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

The food was delicious. They were able to create some fantastic flavors. My wife loved her prime rib, it was a perfect medium rare, and my pork roast with pear was perfectly seasonned and one of the best things ive eaten for a long time. The complaints about EJs is that, even though it wasnt that busy, it took a long time for our food to arrive (appetizer, salads and entres) the wait staff was appologetic for this and kept up with our beverages, so it wasnt too bad. Also, the appetizer (bacon wrapped scalops), although delicious was exteemly small portion wise compared to the price. Youre probably better off skipping the appetizer and getting a desert instead.

But dont get me wrong, the quality of this place was unexpected and excelent. Highly recommended.

“Fried asparagus”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Sept 28,2013 we were staying in Scotland,Pa with no food prospects in sight. As is usual we went to trip advisor to find a good restaurant. Just south of us on rt30 we found Ej's Grille that was number 6 rated. That sent us to the bar where Amanda H took care of all our needs. Fried asparagus,haddock sandwich with a veggie medley and a steak-blue cheese salad filled us to the top with no room for desserts. Add in a merlot and 3 well drinks for a total of $48.80. Good deal
