Awesome Dinner

Awesome Place. Food and service was excellent. Prime Rib, smoked salmon plus broil pork were beyond description. Excellent river views of the White River.

This restaurant has an appeal you just can't find most places and is quietly tucked in the Norfork River with an amazing view all year around. Three weeks ago new ownership took place. The food was better than over ever had here so that says a lot since the food has always been very good. My family had the prime... More

Dining at PJ's is the same wonderful experience, if not better than ever, under the new and capable owners, Anne and Jimmy. Les and Julie Stevens left BIG shoes to fill, but as frequent diners at PJ's, we are happy...deliriously happy...to say, Anne and Jimmy are up to the challenge. The high standards set by the previous owners remains the... More

I used to stay here when it was first built. The last owners really let it run down but servile years ago it was purchased and turned back into a great facility. Best food around. make a reservation.

This young couple "just" had their first night since purchasing this restaurant set on the banks of the beautiful White River in north Arkansas. Food was great, service excellent and the owners very nice to meet. Highly recommend ... Our stay was at Riverside Retreat just up the road and the recommendation was very much appreciated.

Gary, We would like to thank you so much for coming in and dining with us. As new owners we are very excited to hear that your experience was an enjoyable one. We have big shoes to fill as the previous owners have built an outstanding reputation for excellent food. It was very nice to meet you and your family... More

PJ's is truly fine dining way out in the sticks. My wife and I have tried most of the items on the menu. My personal favorite is the "Flat Iron Steak" But, you won't go wrong with any thing on their menu!

My wife and I were married at PJ's 2 years ago this past June and just celebrated our 2d anniversary there. Even though we live in Mountain Home, we have found a wonderful place for a "staycation." We dine and stay for a couple nights and just leave the world behind us... it's SO easy to do there; the river,... More

PJs on the river is a short drive from Calico Rock or Mountain Home, but is a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet, romantic dinner and watch the river flow by along with all of life's cares.

I have eaten at PJ's numerous times and am always extremely happy with the meal and service. The owners, Les and Julie, are gracious hosts. The scenery is fabulous!! Best entree? Whiskey Steak! For appetizers, get the crispy wrapped shrimp. The salad bar is not like most you find in the south. There are many extras (hearts of palm, candied... More

Got seating outside on the deck. Such a great view and atmosphere. The smoked trout appetizer was excellent. Pork and salmon and steak was all excellent. Service was a little slow, but friendly.
