“Old and Tired”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This restaurant used to be the "to go to" place in Ludlow. The food was great and a great value. At our last (and I do mean last) visit, we found the decor dirty and tired, the older staff abrupt and the food terrible. When we asked if we could sit at a table in the bar area, the mainstay, surly waitress directed us to the hostess stationed at the back of the room at the dining room entrance (another faux pas). We were informed there was a time limit on the tables so we opted to sit at the bar. When inquiring about food, the bartender was abrupt. The fish sandwich I ordered was awful-the fish still frozen in the center. I known from a past bad experience that the chef does not like food to come back so I just ate what I could. We won't be back.

“Simply the best value in Vermont”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

DJ's is always busy because they have a wide selection of excellent dishes, a fresh salad bar with lots of good stuff. Reasonable prices
for exceptional food. The Prime Rib is the best anywhere. Excellent Filet Minon, Roast crispy duck, Baked scallops. Excellent service.

Entrees were large. Good standard fare. Family of 4 was $75.00. Salad bar was constantly refilled. They are only open during dinner. Close to Okemo.
