“Interesting location and great food!”
Reviewed October 24, 2010

We visited the ELkins location October 16 with 40 other MINI Cooper owners on a rally I had set up. They go tis seated fast, food came out as quickly as could be expected with a group our size. The food was great with huge portions. Warning, consider splitting the sandwiches between two or three people. They're HUGE! The fried ALfredo bites are enough for a meal as well! If I'm in the area again, I'll be back for sure!

“Great Food, Interesting Decor”
Reviewed June 9, 2010

Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant. It seems to be the hot spot in downtown Elkins. You won't get bored waiting for your food here because there is so much to look around at. Antique and unique items that bring back memories seem to cover every square inch of the place. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The service was so-so. It's good enough to go back to and certainly is a more interesting place than all the chain restaurants on the other side of town.

“Good food, great environment”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

C.J.'s is a great restaurant for bringing people from out of town. The food is very good, although the portions are absolutely, unnecessarily enormous. The menu is a nice selection of Americana - good main courses, sandwiches, pasta dishes, etc, and the recipes are generally pretty original. The Americana atmosphere is a fun, tasteful review of 19th and 20th century Americana, focusing in on local culture from the Buckhannon-Upshur community. C.J.'s also sports a full-service bar, in addition to a separate bar area of the restaurant.

Service is hit-or-miss; great one day, pretty bad the next, but it is generally a result of inattentiveness due to the volume of business. I've never had a particularly unpleasant or malicious server. Also, depending on the time of day, you may well experience a wait in order to be seated.

Overall, I would recommend it as a good place to get a meal. If they would cut back on the portions and keep another server or two staffed at any given time, I'd really love it.
