My wife had penne alfredo. I had meatballs in marinara sauce. Both sauces were terrible, though the marinara was far worse than the alfredo. I knew before I even tried the marinara that it would be terrible due to its color and overall appearance. The...More

Our island stays always include a trip to CJ's...Mediterranean deep dish is the BEST! A few orders of breadsticks always seem to find their way home, as well!

Dine-in or take-out, thin crust or deep dish, classic combos, great specials or create your own. Take-out is always ready when promised. Sit-down service is very good in a unique, rustic room.

As a third generation local, CJs pizza has been a staple on St. Simons for as long as I can remember. They have the best bread sticks and deep dish pizza on the Island. Try it out, it's where the locals eat!!

Took our grandson out to give his parents a break. Pizza was delicious and the owner and wife were friendly and gave us a ball of dough for The grandson with extra to take home. He was entertained and we all left happy! Great place!

Just took out a couple of pizzas last week. While not an absolute rave (they were a tad overcooked), they were certainly more than, "good enough". Best pizza on SSI by far!

This is a little hole-in-the-wall place, but not to be fooled, they outdo Mellow Mushroom by ten miles! This is some of the best pizza we have ever had, bar none! We only had the thick crust, but it was awesome! :) Service is friendly...More

This is a great choice for a pizza or pasta. Small dining room that fits the locally owned restaurant perfectly. Also a great place to order a pizza to take to your condo. The owner was making pizza the night we ordered pizza. The deep...More

We had the calzone, pizza, and Greek salad. Everything was very fresh and delicious. Kristen took excellent care of us. No waiting and fast service. Fun atmosphere and great music.
