We absolutely love CJs! It's not the most attractive and well decorated place but the food is great and affordable. Best crab cakes in town. Blue plate specials for lunch are great.

I've been to CJ's at least a dozen times. First, let me tell you, that CJ's is what they consider a "hole in the wall" restaurant. The interior has outdated paneling and tables along with throw together, mismatched coffee mugs. If you can get past that, the food is delicious, and you get plenty of it for a real good... More

Seriously, the best. If you need to pay double for ambiance, ok. If you want great crab cakes Benedict or a fried mullet breakfast plate then come here. They also have terrific burgers, beignets and New Orleans style coffee. Ok, no alcohol, so scratch the mimosas or bloody Mary's. Grab the Groupon and you're loving life.

The food here is great, not a lot of seating but they get you in and out quickly. The beignets are amazing, and the prices are good. Have ate here a couple of times, and would go back

Husband and I went for a Valentine's Breakfast on a Tuesday am...I don't think we could have picked a better place! First, if you are frugal, I recommend purchasing the $8 Groupon to receive a $16 gift certificate redeemable right from your phone. Secondly, get your taste buds ready for a truly made from scratch unforgettable experience. I ordered the... More

WOW, did they name that one right...Three eggs to order, grits, chicken fried steak and gravy, biscuit, hashbrowns.. That was my pick but they have every breakfast meat known to humans...Service was top notch, they treated me like family. I... More

Not a big place by any means, but very good food and fast service. Me and my date ordered what the waitress recommended and were both very pleased! The prices were pretty good too!

Got a groupon for this place and went for lunch. Hamburgers are pretty good as are the fries. Locals say the breakfast is the best in the area. Looking forward to going back!

This place is amazing; looks like a "hole in the wall" but the food is fab. Best Eggs Benedict in town and the staff are wonderful we eat there almost monthly. You seat yourself and sometimes have to wait on the benches but it's well worth the wait.
