Dinner by the river

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.

The food and service were all excellent! There were 6 of us in our group and we each had a different main course. They were all excellent except for the shrimp ying yang special. This dish was tasty but the shrimp were very small. Definitely not the jumbo gulf shrimp we are accustomed to seeing. The tiramisu was a good... More

We (2 couples) ate at PJ's twice during our 2 week stay on the White River. The food and service continues to be absolutely "world class". Both couples have enjoyed food and service in some of the world's most famous restaurants and bistros, and find that this wonderful hidden gem is on a par with the best of them.... plus... More

Best smoked trout we've ever eaten. Superior to Gaston's restaurant and the folks were so more personal, too.

A little off of the beaten path, but well worth the trip. Always delicious and beautifully presented! Definitely worth the time to go to PJ's. Julie and her chefs do an amazingly wonderful job of food preparation and presentation. Les and the wait staff are very friendly and accommodating. When you make your trip there, make sure you try the... More

We made the 1 and a half hour drive for dinner last evening and couldn't have been happier. Our appetizers, meal, and dessert were delectable! There were four in our party; we ordered two appetizers (cripsy wrapped shrimp and shrimp jammers), a wedge salad, lobster bisque, Caesar salad (home made dressing), and then each ordered a different entree (prime rib,...

My husband and I dine often at PJ's. The food and service are always top notch. It has been a couple of months since we have been back due to our schedules and travel, but tonight we wanted to give ourselves a Christmas treat and what a treat it was. The special was duck confit. Yes, duck confit in the... More

My husband and I recently made the 2 1/2 hour drive from home just to eat at PJ's. We have been several times before with our best friends who dine there very frequently. This was the first time my husband and I had been by ourselves. My husband loves the prime rib and when we arrived he was told there... More

First and foremost I want to apologize for what sounds like a very poor dining experience. It sounds like it was clearly all our fault and for that we are embarrassed and truly sorry. Yes, we will sometimes have an “off” evening but that is never a valid excuse for any business like ours who have set such high standards.... More

We ate at P.J.'s about 4 yrs. ago with 2 other couples who go there quite frequently. They are known professionals in our area. We were treated very well by the owners then. 1 month later we went back with 2 men from Chicago(one a doctor) who were here for fly fishing and had quite a different experience. We had... More

I want to say first of all that I’m sorry that “oggiedoggie2013” felt slighted when they visited our restaurant last month. Of course that would never be our intention as you can see from so many of our other reviews on TripAdvisor we have many happy customers. Over the last 6 ½ years we have made a lot of friends...
