There is not enough to be said about this restaurant. They catered a wedding rehearsal dinner and a wedding that we attended and the food was so good. We decided to drive down and give it a try. The food was home cooking just like your Mom would make. We went on Friday and had the chicken & dressing which... More

The could-be-better: Portions were small and the large dinning area is noisy; was there before the lunch crowd and noise levels were OK but I bet when the place... More

Fridays are my family's "CJ Friday".. My parents enjoy going here , its a nice environment. My only complaint is the 1 waitress we always seem to end up with. My 70 yr old mother never gets her order correct. Even her drink order is wrong when we have this certain waitress. The food, though, is always very good, hot... More
