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

Family and I stopped. Good food, quick stop. Typical sports bar- pretty large menu- bison burger was good I'd recommend it.

I have visited other PJ Whelihans in the area, all are excellent. This one though seems to be in an old house that has never been remodeled and apparently is too small for the area it is in. Upon arrival we were told 20 minutes for our party of 7 so we waited in the cold crowded area near the... More

Got to enjoy this place on a trip out to Allentown. Was told by a local to try it out. I'm glad we did. Beer Specials every night and the food was good bar food. Key word is Bar Food. Enjoy the burgers and fried food. And other tasty treats. Just cause there is stake on the menu, don't get... More
