Food was great, atmosphere was great. Had a wonderful time with friends here and just the overall scene. This was my first time on Fire island and I want to go back.

Loved having drinks at CJ's. The atomosphere is so relaxed but classy. My favorite drink is the island's signature drink, Rocket Fuel!

Great place for drinks. VERY loud music. Couldn't hear myself think. Crowded. No place to "hang out". You're forced to stand next to people eating at their tables.

The lobster dish left a lot to be desire. Our waiter was very nice but he was by himself taking care of all the tables. The lobsters were overcooked and very scanty meat and they forgot to add the potatoes too. He saw our dishes and without us asking he offered crab cakes. Very disappointed with the food.

Cj's is one of the main bars I make sure to hit up anytime that I am on Ocean Beach. It's a great, chill scene both during their happy hour and at night when the restaurant transforms and Rob spins sick beats. The entire staff is very friendly and hospitable. Eric is an excellent bartender who always made sure that... More

My oysters were excellent! Took a little while to come out but our waitress, Jenn or Jess I'm not sure, was so great at making sure we were attended to and apologized multiple times for our wait. Such a nice young lady. A little loud since it was happy hour and the bar was VERY crowded but the food was... More

We went to CJ's with our 2 boys. My son's name is CJ too! We had their fried calamari app, crab cake app- both excellent! The CJ burger is big and juicy, the fries crunchy outside and soft inside, just right. Their lobster roll was delicious. The place is a bit loud and overstimulated. But we would definitely return.

Stopped in here for a quick lunch on a Monday. We were the only people having lunch as it was pretty early in the day. Service was great and the lobster rolls were excellent.

We stopped here for lunch. My husband ordered a burger and I ordered the clam chowder. I am a very patient person but we waited 45 min for our food which I thought was a bit much, especially since there were few people at the restaurant at that time. Food was very good, my husband said his burger was one... More
