Located at the top of the hill from lower Port Jefferson, there is ample free parking in the lot. Rustic interior with a nautical flair offers restaurant and seafood market. At $19... read more

Consistently fresh and well-prepared fish dishes are found here. It's a hidden gem that seems to be frequented by many of the locals. You simply cannot lose when you come to a restaurant that is part of a retail fish market. This is a shining example of that indeed. The menu is HUGE and is very well priced. A great... More

Excellent fresh seafoood. Service was timely and very friendly. Not big on ambiance but still worth the rather high price especially for special occasions. Lots of menu Choices and you can even purchase fresh seafood at their market to go. Good experience defiantly recommend if your looking to splurge.

We went to PJ's for dinner. We wanted somewhere locals were eating so we asked around. This is a very relaxed atmosphere feels like a house-tavern. The servers were friendly & efficient. Two of us are Gluten Free & they were very very accomodating to make sure we didn't get anything with gluten. We ordered a Fisherman's Platter broiled which... More

This was our first trip here and it was great! So often you only get choices of Tilapia, Salmon or Shrimp, so there was a nice variety on the menu. Portion size was good - they only serve beer and wine, just so you know. That was OK with us, though. We had Lobster, Mahi-Mahi and Tuna. Friendly waitstaff -... More

I was in long island for 2weeks and my mom took me here. We ended up eating here 4times during my trip! Lobster roll is outstanding. Alot of lobster meat, not too much mayo. Lobster Mac and cheese great, and shrimp salad over house salad delicious! Sad I no longer live in LI and can't go again!

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend for lunch on our way out of town and we were blown away. This restaurant is also a fish market. Our lobster bisque was creamy, savory, and full of delicious lobster meat. We both ordered the flounder sandwiches with Cajun seasoning and absolutely loved them. Enormous helpings of fish and prompt, courteous... More

This is a seafood shop and a restaurant where you can get the freshest fish around. Try the all you can eat specials. Excellent food and soups. Love the lobster bisque, mussels in marinara sauce, baked clams.

Ate here twice as I really like fish though they have a broad menu. Everyone loved their own choice. The fish were very fresh and well prepared. Lobster and sea scallops were excellent. Great service. Highly recommended.
