great seafood full bar

Bright and loud, so the atmosphere isn't great. But the food and service were very good. We had the stone crab and grouper.

We returned after 12 years and it was the same delicious food! We also got a kick out of the cups that they serve your pop in - so much fun! Hard to find, but a hidden gem! Loved our waitress and hope we can return sooner! The onion rings are great!

Lunch menu was very affordable. Fish fry was delicious and plentiful portions. Staff was fantastic and kids liked the Parrot. Would go back anytime! Lots of choices and great lunch specials. I don't think I saw oysters on the menu though - but I wasn't looking for them either. I'm sure they were there.

I had the 8 oz lobster with 2 sides of shrimp and other sides including Mac and cheese. Could not eat it all. Good beach drinks - had the delicious mango rum runner. Very casual but popular place, get there early!

Returned to PJ's a number of times. It's close to where we were staying and always seated quickly. Sometimes we are outside and sometimes inside, but always the wait staff is prompt and friendly. Started off with the chilled shrimp and mozarella sticks, always done just right. There were a group of us each time, with everyone ordering something different.... More

While on an extended vacation in Florida, PJ's was recommended to us by one of the guests at our 'beach club'. They have a noon special... for approx. $7.99 each, you could have one of 6 or 8 meals. On our first visit, my husband had fish 'n chips and I had the chicken breast. Both were good. A couple... More

I gave PJs a very good overall rating because of the stone crab claw special they had the day of our visit. They were excellent! The rest of the meals ordered were just "okay" bar fare. It seems to be harder to find real fresh fish. Not sure if theirs is fresh, but the others that ordered the "local" grouper... More

Oysters were great - both raw & Chicago style. Alligator bites were nicely fried & not overly chewy/tough. I wasn't fond of the calm chowder (too thick for my palate), but the gumbo was excellent with just enough spicy kick :-).

We sat outside right by the outdoor entertainer, how fun. The whole crowd got into one song, it was so funny. Food was great and fast considering how busy it was. Clam strips weren't what I was expecting, very bready but still delicious. Key lime pie was delicious. Would highly recommend this place!

Great service and food. The cooked, peel your own shrimp was excellent. Too noisy because tables were crowded together. Live music is a nice addition.
