The waitress disappeared for a long time after bringing the drinks late and then again when we were still waiting. It took us an hour to get an... More

We won't go out of our way for a visit at CJ's, but when we are in the neighborhood on the boat it is a place we can count on to provide average drinks and average food at average prices.

Think they have live music every night, but we stopped by for drinks mid afternoon and enjoyed sitting by the water, the waiter told us that the place is packed on Tuesdays when they have live Motown music. We will go back on a Tuesday.
