Reviews of CJ's American Pub & Grill

review_stars 09/22/2013 - Ted John Noga
Like most restaurants they started out good but then they turned into crap. My girlfriend ordered the lobster bisque at $7 a cup. No problem except when I challenged the waitress to find a piece of lobster in the lobster bisque she couldn't because there wasn't any. I told her this was nothing more than a" CJ's doesn't give a S#!T bland pink colored cream soup." Then I promptly changed my order for the seafood risotto to a half rack of ribs, because if they aren't going to put any lobster in the lobster bisque I'm not paying $27 for a plate of risotto. In comes the owner gritting his teeth and all ticked off. First off don't come up to me ticked off while your screwing everyone out of $7 for bland corn starch and water with some red food dye and seafood stock. Then he said "there is lobster in the lobster bisque its just ground up fine." I informed him that isn't lobster bisque. Here's a recipe for the moron that doesn't care about his restaurants survival. No recipe for lobster bisque contains less than 1/5 of a lb of lobster per serving and at that it isn't supposed to be finely ground into dust flakes smaller than pepper. He then informed me that my seafood risotto was finished. I told him" I assume there isn't any lobster in that either, much like the bisque" he then said "there are about 5 tiny knuckle sized pieces" Here's a recipe for lobster risotto moron.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> What else did you add to it 1/2 of a scallop and a finely ground tsp of crab meat? <br /> <br /> He thinks I'm paying $27 for five tiny knuckle sized pieces of lobster and pasta? Really? I told him that's exactly why I don't want it, there is no point in bringing it out to me if your serving me.. his words "5 tiny knuckle" sized pieces of lobster. I got the half rack of ribs which were good, maybe his spit added some flavor? Then we saw the couple next to us get a cup of lobster bisque WITHOUT the parsley on top, she was concerned that they just served them ours! I don't know either way but his attitude says he ready for failure and I wouldn't be surprised. I filled out the comment card gave all 5 and 4s and added that lobster bisque actually has lobster in it and on the back said " Friendly suggestion: Don't be Cheap nor a D!c%. "<br /> <br /> Someone is going to be very happy within a year when they rent that restaurant space out, he did a great job renovating it.<br /> <br /> The restaurant business isn't easy when you want to be near the upper-mid + end of the scale, if you can't do it right don't waste your time.<br /> <br /> For good food in the area go to University Grille or Orchards or the copper kettle if you don't mind the drive.
