An inviting decor with a carried, but not overly ambitious menu. Pleasant and attentive wait staff, but not intrusive. The "early bird" specials were limited, but adequate. My steak was flavorful and well prepared. All-in-all a pleasurable experience. If back in the area I would give it another go.

Not impressed! The only good thing was our waitress! She was very nice and provided good service. The food was mediocre and my husbands beer was watery. The music was very loud! Interesting mix of people inside!

Food was great, the best burgers around. Lots of good beers on tap. Waiters are efficient and friendly. The crab cakes are wonder, full of crab meat and not a lot of fillers. Food is hot when served!

This isn't the Ritz, but who wants to go there for a beer? Great beers, great service and pub food that we all want when we're drinking.

Maybe they had a very off night, but we went this past Saturday and the food was awful. The chicken in the greek sandwich was overcooked, the chipotle pasta dish had no flavor and was mushy, the rockfish special with shrimp was tasteless and the BBQ ribs were dry...even the french fries were boring. The only two entrees that were... More

My daughter graduated high school last night. We entertained our family at PJ Skidoos. The experience was precisely what I had in mind; an excellent job. This review is not so much about the food as the ambiance. Often, what I am after in a restaurant is a social opportunity. In specific, conversation. In this case, I wanted to sit... More

The outdoor seating area has a bar and a few tables and was okay for our large group. It was loud, so I couldn't hear much beyond what was said by the persons right next to me. If you don't like cigarette smoke, choose your seat with care to avoid the cigarette smoke. I found it very annoying that 4... More

Had a classic irish pub ambiance and good food. Dark wood and a full bar. This is a local favorite. You won't be disappointed.

Great food at a great price. I have passed this restaurant for years, and just recently stop in for lunch, and then dinner, and I think I just found my new favorite restaurant. The short ribs are great as well is the London broil, don't forget to try the French onion soup.
