I would definitely recommend CJ’s to anyone visiting Shippensburg. The food was excellent. We had a variety of foods — appetizers to entrees. All were thoroughly enjoyed. Our waitress was superb! The only thing I regret was the I was too full to enjoy dessert because the selection was wonderful!
Excellent food and service. Enjoyed our dinner very much. The service was prompt, informative and friendly.
Very good and elegant place to eat. We go here on special
The food was a mixed bag. The crabcake sandwich was good, but nothing spectacular. The worst offender was the pork barbeque wrap. I expect as wrap to be rounded from the ingesdients in it. This was a flat wrap, i.e. not much pork and some coleslaw. If the actual quantitiy of meat was served on a plate, it would have been laughably small.
Worse, there are only two restrooms, each with a locked doo. When the place is busy, you can wait a while to use the restroom. Not a strong plan after a couple of beers.
Ribs fell off the bone!!!
The food, service, and atmosphere were all simply outstanding! My salmon was absolutely delicious and my one friend said he had the best brisket he’s ever eaten—and he lives in North Carolina and he’s also eaten brisket in Texas numerous times—CJ’s brisket was the best ever!
Everyone ordered different entrees including Oktoberfest. All were excellent. Service was superb! A treasure for the Shippensburg area.
Most of the food was excellent except for the asparagus I found that to be tough. The service was ok could of been better. A manager or owner never stopped by our table. Someone running around with an iPad was more interested in that than the guests.
Octoberfest was outstanding!
Menu selection is limited but the items are prepared well. Asparagus was a little tough.
Food was very good.
Service was excellent.
Dining room was a bit noisy for conversation.
Second time we have dined here. Food and Service were outstanding. The place was not crowded on a Saturday night, which was great for the dining experience, but others need to support with limited options in Ship.
Had a hightop table near the bar, so it was a bit noisy. Grilled veggies tasted like the grill. Okay overall, worth a try at least.
We went to CJs for a date night not knowing what to expect. We were blown away!! Our waitress (Shae, Shay, Shea) was FANTASTIC. She was so energetic and helpful with our first time being there. My husband had the ribs with the Texas heat sauce (fantastic) and I had the Chesapeake chicken (amazing!). We had the brisket nachos which were fantastic (we preferred the house made chips over the regular tortilla). Then we got two homemade cheesecake slices to go, which were also fantastic. Everyone was very happy and made us feel welcomed. We will definitely be back!
Great food, better service!!! Superb place!
Food was good and service was very good!!!
Food was delicious, me and my son had a steak, my wife has shrimp tacos. The food was great, the service was fast and the waitress was really nice. We'll be going back there soon
Always good food. Service is usually 1st rate. Love their oysters
There for seafood fest and the food was amazing!!!! And our waitress was excellent!!!!
Over all we had a very positive experience. The boom boom shrimp was outstanding!
The beer cheese and ore were not. Pretzels were stale and beer cheese was old. No problem tho the waitress took it back and took it off our bill.
The coconut shrimp came to the table burnt. And the stuffed flounders sauce was incredible salty. Was our first time and I wasn’t wowed....
I like their variety of seating options and attentive staff. Their seafood was outstanding.
I have had brisket at many locations but hands down this was the best brisket I have eaten. Can't wait until I get back again for it.
Everything was great but I’ve never seen a barbecue place without baked beans, really really would love to help them. The good ones with leftover brisket/bacon etc. Thank you! Oh and the hostess unfortunately was a little grouchy but our server was fantastic
This was our first visit in a while, and CJ's did not disappoint. Food was great, as was our waitress!! A little noisy, but was expected for an open room.
First time making reservations, but will definitely do again!
Delicious food and fantastic service. We absolutely enjoyed the experience overall. Highly recommend.
We always love eating at CJ’s, great food and great experience!
We were just passing through for the night and found a place close to our hotel. Food was good, arrived quickly, and waitstaff was friendly.
Fantastic food and service as always. Great for both the family and date night.
First time here and it was great. The food was excellent, the waitress very personable and the overall atmosphere enjoyable. We met some friends from Harrisburg because Shippensburg is about halfway, and CJ’s was well worth the drive. We will be going back!
We all enjoyed our meals and had a great experience overall. The food was very delicious.
Brisket nachos were fantastic! I had the duck special w risotto & broccolini. Everything was outstanding!
Stick with the meat and you can’t go wrong….everything else was okay but ribs and brisket A+
Food and staff were amazing. Will be back for sure
Fabulous food, great waiter, helpful hostess when I called to say we'd be late. Noise was a bit distracting but we're happy that people are out and supporting this gem. Worth the 40 minute drive we take through the mountains to get there
Everyone was great !!
We went for prime rib . Our reservations were for 6 pm . Prime Rib was already sold out. The menu says Prime Rib available Fri and Sat after 4 pm. Disappointing. We got Charboiled Oysters , they were great . Two orders of crab cakes , very good also. I got Mahi-Mahi, over cooked . Nice place alittle overpriced although .
everything was good including service and the food
We’ve been to CJ’s a few times now and we have not been disappointed. Great food & great service!
Excellent food, service, and opportunity to meet with folks.
