Ate at Pj's on Sunday. Although we had to wait for a table, it was worth the wait. The pancakes were very good and the side of bacon was large enough for the five of us to share. Three pancakes were almost too much to eat. I don't think I could have eaten a full order of 5.

Although busy, I got a seat at the counter and soon tucked in to a breakfast of bacon, pancakes, two eggs over easy and black coffee. Another morning I got essentially the same outside. Both experiences were positive, featuring good food and service.

This restaurant is clearly a favorite of tourists and locals. When it fills up you have to stand outside until a table is ready. This is a great experience in itself. The people behind us gave us great tips about other places to go and I got a tip on one of the most fantastic resale shops ever in Frenchtown.... More

Thought the place looked ok so decided to take my children there 20 and 16. Boy what a disaster!!! Sat down the bench seating was so close to the table that my belly:( hits the table sorry 50 year old belly now. The waitress was so disorganized I felt she was afraid of me. She took my order and we... More

We have been here for pancakes several times and it is always a great experience. Pancakes are huge and great value but also a heavy meal. Breakfast is also great here. I will come back as I live nearby

I stopped in here with a friend who visits on a regular basis. It was a cold December morning and there was a line of about 20 people waiting outside. We got in line. The line moved pretty quickly, maybe a ten minute wait for us. Inside the restaurant is small. about ten small booths and a few tables. The... More

Its a crowded place, close space, hustle and bustle, and unique. It was build on the need for the students to get away from the "eating clubs" of the campus. They could get a right and proper breakfast there as they wished. I think they still serve the "Finals Breakfast" which consisted of eggs, bacon, pancakes with a pair of... More

I've been going to PJ's pancake house for ... a long time! (not to date myself but close to 20 years) & in those 20 years, I have never once had a bad experience here. THAT is a tough accomplishment for any establishment! Located directly on Nassau, it's easy to get to, if you go during the week, parking is... More

Once again had a great breakfast at PJ's Pancake House. While not the fanciest spot -- food is consistently good -- it is a tradition.
