Nice crowd, decent selection of beers, okay food, and attentive service. All adds up to a good lunch in Cobourg, Ontario. What is an over-opinionated, self proclaimed "Blog-Meister", foodie barfly doing in a nice town like Cobourg? Well, a client sent me there! Wasn't my idea! I like travelling to small towns in Ontario. They are nothing like rural America,... More

The drinks were good but not the food. The fish n Chips were so greasy they saturated the fries. The rest of the food was lacking. The plus was the onion rings.

We decided to take our 4 year old to CJ's for Valentine's Day. It was our first time to CJ's and unfortunately will be our last. Our son loves ribs and fries so we ordered a half rack of ribs with wings ($24) to share. The ribs were so dry and hard my son could not even chew them. The... More

Great staff and food at CJ's. The jumbalaya was well-seasoned and loaded with shrimp, chicken and tasty veggies. The chicken salad was served with fresh and flavourful fixings. Despite being full, the noise level in the restaurant didn't get in the way of conversation. We'll be back!

Went to The Jail in Cobourg for lunch with friends and it was closed so we opted to try CJ's. We tried different menu items and everything was delicious. Hot, tasty, and fresh.

Bar is a nice place to be able to wait until a table is available. Menu typical of a bar. Servers very receptive to swapping for example fries for a salad. Service good and food very well presented while being tasty.

I worked at Casey's for 15 years and always loved their food. Let me tell you that CJ's (formerly Casey's) is even better. I had the Chicken Taco salad. It was so wonderful that I couldn't stop eating. It was taken off of the Casey's menu years ago and I am so glad that it is on CJ's menu. I... More

CJ's has been family owned for 25 years. Originally a Casey's Bar and Grill, we have had the opportunity to become independent as of June 1, 2015. We are passionate about guest service, value and quality. Our goal in the relaunch as CJ's has been to bring back all of our guest favourites with a bit of a twist to make it our own. Working with our suppliers, we are bringing in local, fresh and high quality products, in an effort to better serve and support our community.
