Nice find in downtown McDonough!

On way home from a group gathering and decided to try it for dinner. New menu and plenty of choices! Service was outstanding and food was delicious!

We haven't been to PJ's Cafe in years, but we had heard they were now serving brunch and decided to give them a try. We showed up right after the noon hour. It looked like they had a decent crowd, and we didn't have to wait long for them to clear a table for us. Our server greeted us and... More

We have always enjoyed our visits to PJ's Cafe. The food has never disappointed and the wait staff are very friendly. The restaurant is a little rundown and the menu could use an update, but the food is delicious none-the-less.

My wife and I along with my son and his family ate here on July 18. We met some old friends who live nearby who recommended this restaurant. It was quite enjoyable. The service and food quality were quite good. The only negative comment would be the restrooms are in need of a good cleaning and updating. Other than that... More

Today we met family for dinner and we enjoyed a nice dinner on a Saturday night. Wonderful live music was being played as we ate. My husband had the cheeseburger and I had the Reuben and it was delicious!!!

Seated quickly, and greeted by our waitress shortly after we sat. Ordered the NY Strip medium with steamed broccoli. The food was served hot in a timely fashion. Average seasoning and taste. Service was good and the atmosphere was in the quiet side which I prefer. Will try again in the future. An average pleasant experience was had.

We had stopped going, since the last time, service and food was not up to par. Tried it again, and was much pleased. Maybe a different chef. Anyway, we were much happier. Food was worth the price. And a singer to listen to. Not for the young crowd. I believe they have a early bird special.

We ate here last night and left very impressed. The food was delicious and the services was great. Love the decor that looks like a small town square. Just like McDonough itself. Our waiter David was great! We will be back for more. The lobster bisque was very good!

Thank Chris D
