A Hike for a Good Meal

The PJ Lobster House , as the name implies is mostly seafood menu casual dining restaurant. It is located under a mile from the PJ Dock on Main Street. It's a bit of hike tho fairly short distance but it's level 5 incline halfway. You'll surely work an appetite if you decide to go on foot. The... read more

I just remember my feet getting wet walking through the takeout area. I did not enjoy this crowded noisy restaurant. The lobster's she'll was too soft and the lobster claw was all white gouey stuff in it. Gross.

I love this restaurant, I work nearby and stop by whenever I can. I have never been disappointed by the food or the service. My personal favorite is the salmon pinwheel stuffed with crab meat.

While passing through Port Jefferson after arriving by ferry, we found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. We stopped for an early lunch, on a weekday. The restaurant was not crowded, and we were seated immediately. I noticed that the restaurant was very clean. To include the retail fresh seafood counter at the entrance, and the bathroom. Noticeable enough to include in... More

Just had a dinner with five of us. We're from out of town and wanted a local lobster house. Our food took 30 minutes and every dish was overlooked. We left completely disappointed. The sides weren't even good. The one dinning room was oppressively loud so we could hardly hear each other. Steer clear.

We were experiencing a time crunch and wanted to eat some seafood. Rather than drive all the way into the Village of Port Jeff on a Sunday evening, we thought we'd save time and parking hassles by eating at PJ Lobster House. The waitress was sympathetic to our need to be somewhere else by a certain time. We were served... More

Went a few times and stopped going there. Disorganized staff, Luke warm soup, cold entrees, stale bread. Just no attention to detail. Good restaurants have great bread and at least good service!

Not the fanciest of restaurants but certainly way above so many with the quality of the seafood. Very fresh and delicious lobster...some of the best steamers ever and consistently so. Worth the trip and the wait

Loud and pricey; very ok. Fish taco special was dry but plentiful (two filled but mostly garnishments rather than fish). Man behind counter in fish market was rude when asked questions so did not buy anything to go.
