Went to CJ's based on reviews. We weren't disappointed. Brant, our server, was excellent. He was very engaging and helpful in menu suggestions. Good menu choices and accommodating to dietary needs. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

This is our first visit to this area and discovered CJ's. Wonderful dining experience in a casual atmosphere. The chicken Oscar special with grilled asparagus was fantastic and the chicken alfredo, lightly blackened (small plate) was super. The service was excellent and they tried to...More

This restaurant has some of the best food in Shippensburg! It's not exactly cheap, but the food is definitely worth the price. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, and the restaurant is often packed with both families and college students. Their burgers and barbecue are...More
