Welcome to CJ's, we're a family style breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant located in Lake Orion, Michigan. CJ's has been a home town favorite for years. Stop in for our daily specials !

History of CJ's

CJ's opened in 1997, but the original restaurant in this historical downtown Lake Orion location was opened in 1980 by Tom Baker and was called "Molly's Kitchen." In time the restaurant ownership was passed on to Marge Jewell who renamed it "Margie's Place." Since opening in 1997, and re-naming the restaurant CJ's, Joan and Carl have been determined to keep the quality that both Tom and Marge started. Along with that quality, it has also been our goal to provide something for everyone. With our most recent addition to our menu, we believe we have accomplished just that. "Something for Everyone" Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Cocktails, Live Entertainment and now, our Sushi Bar. All of our menu items are offered in two different atmospheres. A family style dining cafe section that connects to comfortable lounge area offering games, free popcorn, and plenty of big screen TV's to watch your favorite sports games.
