Hot Spot of the Week: CJ’s Seafood Company

Hot Spot of the Week: CJ’s Seafood Company

If you have followed the blog for any amount of time you have heard me rave about the Tilquist brothers’ two Eustis restaurants, Tillies Tavern and the El Marie Pizza. In a short amount of time they have become an integral part of the downtown Eustis landscape. So, when the brothers announced they planned to open their third restaurant, a seafood house, I was SO excited! Delicious seafood is something that I feel our area has lacked, and I knew the brothers would only open a seafood spot if they could promise that it would become the best around.

The day finally came to try out CJ’s and my family and I were so excited! We knew being a new restaurant that there were still kinks likely being worked out, but we were willing to give it a shot to try the food I had already heard rave reviews about.

For appetizers we chose Cod Nuggets and Bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños- we were so happy with these! We enjoyed a couple of drinks and our server, Katrina, made sure we were always happy and taken care of while we waited for the rest of our food.

For my meal, I chose the blackened Mahi and was extremely happy with that as well. The inviting interior, complete with bright colors and lighting that reminds you of a beachside town, finishes off the great atmosphere of this restaurant.

I can’t wait to watch CJ’s become a staple of downtown Eustis just like its sister restaurants have! Have you tried out CJ’s? Let us know what you think!
