My family and I ate here Saturday night this past weekend. I learned about this pizza place on tripadvisor and thought we should check it out. First, this is a small place and it is cramped so go early. Second, it is worth it to visit if you have children because of the unique decorations and the very friendly staff... More

We thought we would give this place a try since our usual restaurant for pizza was closed for the day. We are glad we did! My husband ordered a thin crust pizza and I ordered the deep dish pizza. Both were well prepared and delicious. It a small, charming restaurant with an eclectic decor. The server was pleasant and efficient.... More

In search of pizza, we found CJ's after asking the guy working at the frozen treat shop on Mallery St. From the outside, the restaurant looks pretty tiny, but like a TARDIS, it's bigger on the inside. The narrow, long restaurant is a little dark on the inside and adorned with an array of Christmas lights and a variety of... More

After wintering for several years on SSI, we finally went to CJ's for dinner on 7 Jan 2017. We ordered a large thin crust pizza with sausage, pepperoni and green olives. The pizza was very good and served quickly. We also ordered two Coors light taps. The total tab was $24.12 before tip. The taps might be a bit high... More

This is a must if you are visiting St Simon's Island. Owners are so friendly and you can tell they enjoy what they do. Pizza is fantastic! I don't know what they put in their sauce but it is my new favorite!

This is the best pizza on the island. Very small so get there early! Very close to the pier so it's nice to eat and take a walk and do some shopping. While you wait you get complimentary bread and marinara sauce!!! Yummy!!!!!!! Also the broccoli chicken Alfredo is to die for! You can do take out! Don't miss this... More

We really enjoyed the decor on the ceiling and we felt instantly welcomed by the owner and the chefs. We ordered a light pizza and the ingredients were fresh and ohhhhh so delicious. My husband wanted to go back the next night!!!

My son and I both had the chicken broccoli alfredo and it was delicious! It came with a wonderful side salad and bread sticks. The sweet and sour salad dressing, while unusual looking, was great tasting! The waitress was friendly and quick and managed to keep up with my son's refills on drinks, which was not easy to do.

I went in for dinner,place is crammed full of tables,hard to get thru the front to the back. I ordered a small plate of spaghetti and meatballs, pasta was gummy and needed to be cooked longer and the sauce was really salty and old tasting, sauce should be red not brown..the garlic rolls were just ok, the service was good,...
