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,...

We went recently with a small group of friends and let me say that I am now a DEEP DISH PIZZA CONVERT! I am not deep dish pizza person at all but the dough on this pie was just right and the sauce was super tasty! One of the other couples also ordered the magic mushroom pizza. Of course I... More

Ordered a salad which was lettuce ,some carrots and a small slice of cucumber, comes with bread with sauce, and that was the high lite of the meal, The deep dish pizza which we ordered with pepperoni and sausage came with only one item, was barely cooked and looked and tasted like cheesy bread. Service was good, but would never... More

Ordered take out Labor Day weekend. The deep dish pizza was great. The cheese bread was great as well. I am glad I ordered take out because the eat in area is very small. Maybe room for 40 people. Definitely a place to eat at or order take out when in Saint Simon.

Loved the pizza made fresh with yummy homemade taste, only downside is if you eat in the restaurant area is cramped.

love the deep dish pizza here! Need to open larger space or another location -space too small to accommodate dinner crowd. Great atmosphere however. Cute decor.

We've been to CJ's several times and will keep going back for the pizza. They serve both thin and deep dish. Neither my wife nor I are deep dish pizza people. However, this is not bad. The thin is very good but the way they cook the deep dish the dough isn't so heavy or over powering.This is the good.... More
