The Wings were Great. The Beer specials were Great. The Staff was Great. (special thanks to management for doing a Great job programming the Sunday football to the maximum advantage) Other then the fact that it is a very compact environment, it was a Great time.

We had a business lunch with a group of 6 on a Friday and enjoyed our experience. The wait staff and hostesses are attractive and friendly. The waitresses would make Hooters management jealous. The place is high energy, full of TV's and the food is great. Our food was hot and quick. Try the French dip.

Nothing special. Standard pub fare. Their "world famous wings" were okay. I think the fly buzzing around enjoyed the food more.

We frequent PJ's about once a month to get our wing fix, we love the sweet & sweaty sauce, but really any of their sauces are great too. If you like wings make the stop.

Keep going and spacing my trips about 6 months apart. Unfortunately I am consistently disappointed. My 8 yr old daughter and I stopped for dinner . She had sliders (btw no kids menu), I had wings and the wicked cheesesteak. All food was just ok at best. For a limited menu food should be done right. Our waitress seem very... More

If you're looking for a quiet, romantic spot, this is NOT it! - Great place for chatting (loudly) with friends... looking around at all the décor, having drinks and light food. My Cha Cha Salad was fresh, but very limited in its non-lettuce toppings. Not worth the $10 price tag. Drinks were cold and tasty. Wait staff was excellent. Lots... More

We called ahead for the "20" minute wait. It was more like an hour. There were empty tables visible. No place to sit. Noisy. The food wasn't bad, just very ordinary. If you like the noisy, sports bar scene, then you will like this place. We were celebrating 2 birthdays of the 6 of us who were at the table.... More

We walked into a small, fairly crowded waiting area with no hostess greeting us or taking our name. We looked at each other and walked into the crowded restaurant with again no hostess stand or hostess/staff greeting us or looking to take names. I approached the first server I saw and asked where do we put our name in? She... More
