Service was excellent, menu choices were wide and varied, chicken Caesar salad was mediocre, and views of airport were interesting. My table mates had better fare, so I suspect it was my choice of entree. Pricing was reasonable. Reservations are not required.

The nice thing is they serve breakfast throughout the day, so many restaurants either close at 1 p.m. or stop serving breakfast much earlier. The service is always first rate and the food always gets to us in about 15 minutes. I had the fried chicken with country gravy and basted eggs. It was excellent and hot and perfect eggs.... More

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is a great experience at CJ Cannon's. Owner Pat is usually at the front desk ready to greet all with her smile and charm. A wonderful place to have Sunday morning breakfast eating and watching the airplanes land and take off. There are 2 flight training schools here so watching the pilots training is fun. The... More

We flew in here to try the breakfast - a lot of people had recommended it to us. Now we understand why. Excellent breakfast, fantastic staff and you could spent an hour just looking at all the memorabilia that is around the place. Lots of locals drive here for a meal. You can eat and watch all the happenings at... More

We went on a Saturday night. Was surprised it wasn't very busy. Were greeted like friends as we walked in. Our server was quick, polite and very knowledgeable about the items on the menu. I had salmon, it was some of the best I've had in awhile. Companion had the prime rib he said it was also amazing. The prices... More

Great prices. Excellent food and service. Completely enjoyed our visit and will come back. Had the Philly steak sandwich and the Fruit Plate. The fruit was arranged beautifully and looked like a picture. The sandwich was so much, had to use a fork to eat it.

While in the Vero Beach area, my wife and I stopped for lunch at C.J. Cannon at the Vero airport. The restaurant serves diner type food in an aviation themed environment. In fact, the building is so filled with aviation memorabilia, that you have to spend some time just examining the walls closely. We were seated in a booth with... More

Nice location a stone's throw from the VRB runway. Had the French Dip sandwich, and was more than I really needed. Very much like Bobby's on the barrier island.

After Church, late breakfasts are hard to find ... this is a good one ... at a local airport ... lots of seating ... watch the private planes land. Food was excellent ... some hustle and bustle family atmosphere but well controlled by wait staff ... very attentive. All in all a very satisfying meal!

Average age of patrons - 70. Average age of food - same! Service was with a rush with main served on top of appetizers at same time. Restaurant possibly meant to have character - actually in great need of facelift! Interesting venue actually sited in the airport. Couldn't eat the food sent out. Of the 12 of us 3 managed... More
