Good food

My sister took my husband there for wings for a belated birthday gift. He enjoyed them. We live in MD but have been there many times over the years. I had my usual philly cheese steak without the sauce.

Best wings in the area. The PJ's copper lager is amazing along with most things on the menu. From cheese steaks to taco salad it is bar food at its best. The place gets full and loud and that's part of the atmosphere. Great servers also.

Went for lunch. Food was excellent. Didn't have to wait even with a large group. Staff very friendly and prompt. Got every order correct and checked back often for refills.

Stopped in for a quick bite after business meetings. Ver lively sports bar type of environment with multiple televisions and a lively crowd. Pretty good selection of beers as well as menu items. Food is well prepared and ample portions provided. Great staff. Reasonable price.

It is one of our favourite places in my friend's area. We love it. We always have the wings and we love them. Over the years the wings have changed with different flavours..honey,... More

Food was just ok. Service was just ok. Beer menu was good. Really loud music so if you want to talk I recommend going somewhere else.

This is a great place to hang with some friends, kick back and relax. The food and bar service is excellent and the atmosphere makes you feel comfortable and at home. My favorite is a good burger and fries. Gene Parker Coplay PA

It is absolutely despicable how hot it is in this restaurant in the summer. Almost 90 degrees in the dining room. From what I overheard the waitressing telling the customers, it is like this every summer. Everyone was sweating. The management said "there's nothing we can do about it, its always been this way". That is unacceptable. If Pjs can... More

We were in Allentown on Saturday night and we needed a restaurant for a quick dinner. I chose Pj's due to the fact that we had recently eaten in the Maple Shade, NJ location and had a terrific meal. Tis is a very small location in an old existing building. No hostess stand when you walk in, you kind of... More

This is a small chain but in Jim Thorpe, Pa this restaurant is just off the Mahoning Valley interchange of the PA Turnpike. All of the meals I have had there are very, very good. My son had his surprise 30th birthday party there and they did a terrific job coordinating it.
