We came here on the first night of our stay for dinner on a recommendation from our receptionist, and I'm glad we did. As a starter we chose CJ's signature soft pretzel pieces with dips, along with local microbrews, a great start. Next we had burgers (made from certified Angus beef according to the menu). The 'burger battle burger' ranks... More

Dinner was great. Went back twice. Chocolate lava cake is great. However lunch today was poor- undercooked fish, seemed under staffed and waited over 45 minutes for food. Not very consistent.

Waited a while for a table. Met family already at the bar. They had drinks. I finally asked for a drink 15-20 mins after we had been there. Paid for the drinks at the table. Had dinner. Never received my change for the drinks! Waitress received a large tip since I never received my change from a $20

It seemed all the tables were full. Service was a little spotty. We both had the lentil soup which I thought was a bit salty and I'm one to like salty things. My fish and chips was good and my wife enjoyed her small steak. It was just a steak and potato so we ordered some steamed broccoli to finish... More

Mammoth rolls up the sidewalks early. Most restaurants close by 9PM and it is hard to find good clean food. I had the Italian Salad and my son had a huge Burger Battle burger. Both were better than average. Friendly service but seemed overwhelmed by the crowd that night.

We have lunch here every year on trip to Mammoth Lakes. The food, as well as the service, remains very good. The hamburgers are exceptional. Desserts are great. However, much to our chagrin, the Amish Coleslaw was removed from the menu. That is truly a loss. Our server told us that the chef wanted to change up the menu a... More

Yes it is a grill, expecting steaks, but I would say their steak/meat selection was not great.. BUT their fish was really good and tasty. We got the Snapper with Carry/coconut sauce and it was very good.

Based on their boasting of winning a burger battle, we expected better. Although it wasn't busy (4 tables near finished when we arrived), our service was kind but poor. They mixed up our burger order and it we couldn't tell who's was who's. Bother were supposed to have cheese - only mine did, his was buffalo, mine was supposed to... More

CJ's is a "locals favorite". Their Happy Hour is the "best in town" & the draft beer is deliciously ice-cold! The food is not gourmet by any measure - think of it more as "up-scale comfort food". Generous portions, the Fish & Chips are especially tasty & "home-made" ice-cream in multiple flavors is a special treat. Reservations are a good... More
