Good seafood at reasonable prices

It's very informal with paper towels above the tables and the food is always very fresh and tasty. In season, they even have stone crabs.

My wife and I were craving baked oysters so we topped by this week and had the Chicago style half shell oysters. First time here. Nice Casual Beach area restaurant. Very nice people! The oysters were a good size and had a nice taste. Good cold pint of beer to boot! You won't beat the price on these half shells... More

Maybe we hit a bad day, but the oysters tasted of nothing (really, nothing!), ditto for the fried calamari. It's the sort of place where folks seem to drown everything in dipping sauces (presumably to get some taste). Lots of fried stuff. Never again.

We go to Pj's every year when we are visiting and it NEVER disappoints! We were seated quickly and greeted by a server named Tariya. She was very attentive, enthusiastic and great menu knowledge. I got the crab legs, which of course were delicious and my husband got a grouper sandwich. Everything was cooked perfectly and didn't take long at... More

We are here early in the afternoon and still in time for the lunch specials which were solid. My wife and I both had the blackened grouper which was excellent along with a side salad and frying which were just average. Our son had the fried gator tail which was wonderful and our daughter had oysters two different ways and... More

Atmosphere is great. Food was all very good, when i went in there it was very busy (about 45 minute wait) but it was well worth it. I got snow crab legs which were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for good seafood for a fair price.

Happened to spot PJ's sign and took a chance since we were starving and it was open. Food was fast, server and owner friendly and accommodating - and the food was delicious! Can't wait to take friends to share our new lunch spot.

Took company here when I heard good things from others. Very good seafood. The oysters were great. Had a seafood combo and it was more than I could eat

PJ's is a very casual bar and Grill just off the beach. Delicious clam chowder and our family enjoyed their meals. The walls are covered with one dollar bills which are given to the local Ronald McDonald House each year at Christmas. When you donate, you may feed crackers to PJ a live parrot. Our 8 yr old grandson especially... More
