As locals we like to go here for lunch or dinner. The menu is extensive so we can order a sandwich or a full fisherman's platter! The prices are reasonable and service is friendly and quick. Parking, usually a problem being so close to the beaches, is plentiful.

Good food, reasonable prices, excellent bar service. Pub downstairs and restaurant and bar upstairs. We go here regularly and we like to sit and eat at the bar. Paul is a great bartender . And the fish tanks are beautiful scenery.

We happened upon KJ's when we couldn't get into the restaurant we wanted. Funny how sometimes the biggest disappointments turn good. We enjoyed all our food, but the calamari was outstanding, tender and flavorful. Honestly among the best I've ever had. Prices were more reasonable then most places in the area. All in all a good night.

I ordered past primavera and that typically has not meat. Still, there was chicken and sausage on my plate. It was okay, but I think I got the wrong order. The atmosphere was nice. Views of the beach not too far away. We dined on the second floor. My husband liked his food, and he did get what he ordered.... More

My wife and I went to KJ's Saturday night for dinner around 7:30pm and were disappointed. We had come here a few years ago and thought the meal was good so we decided to visit again. There was only a few other tables (not a good sign for a Saturday night). We ordered two seafood meals. My wife tried the... More

Very nice atmosphere for family with kids and the service was very good they also have kids menu.

This is a neat locally owned restaurant with a lovely menu. We went for lunch in the bar area. The menu has neat new ideas about how to put a twist on a burger. I am hoping the chef was having a bad day bc all four of our burgers & buns were really burned to the point of being... More

We drove by this place around lunch time and the marquee outside peaked my interest. When it came to dinner time this location wasn't our first choice. After stopping at two other locations and being disappointed with what we saw and experienced we stopped here. Once we realized the restaurant was upstairs (Bar/Pub Downstairs), small sign on the wall outside,... More
