This was the first, the last and the best restaurant we visited while in Princeville, a golden girls trip of a group of ladies in their seasoned years that I crashed! My mom was one of the organizers. All originally from Louisiana, and all but 2 of us still reside there, so we were on the hunt for some good... More

They have a light eaters menu for less than $25.00 that includes the $17.00 salad bar. Chose from Ground Sirloin, Hanalei Shrimp, Chicken, or Baby back ribs. The salad bar includes greens, fruit, potato salad, taro rolls and much more. You could make a meal of just this. We had to take most our dinner home.

I still call this place Chuck's, but the real name now is CJ's. Still has basically the same menu though. I love the salad bar and the Mud Pie desert is worth every calorie. We also get the artichoke appetizer and the prime rib. I have never varied from this order over all the years I have eaten here. And... More

Reminiscent of the older Chart House restaurants. They have kept that homey, warm 70's vibe alive. Salad bar, steak and seafood fare with full bar. Some seating outdoors. Reliable, friendly, good service.

We've been coming for 20+ years and our first night's dinner is ALWAYS at Chuck's (actually now called "CJ's). Great Mai Tai's, fair salad bar, and always consistent food. I'd give them "above average" if they brought back their beef ribs, but that's not likely to happen. Enjoy!

The service was excellent and the food outstanding. What more can I say. There were 6 or us and everyone was very happy with their meal and our experience.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. The ambience may be a bit dated as is the exsistance of a salad bar....but the fish and steaks are always really good. Its a great place to eat in Princeville and the pricing is appropriate....eat here!

Sit outside.....quieter & a singer in adjacent outdoor meals area provided beautiful music! Service friendly but no-one could advise on wine. 3 different servers all suggested the other would help! No one did. Meals come with an option of potato or rice as a side & then self serve buffet salads inside. Very small choice for a buffet in my... More
