Pleasantly Surprised.

Stopped in for lunch, the staff was very friendly and answered our questions in regards to the different types of seafood. We tried the fried clam strips. They were very delicious, large portion. Will definitely return if ever in this region again.

I stopped here because another place I wanted was closed...this turned out to my good fortune. I had the grilled tuna sandwich which consisted of two pieces of tuna cooked to order on a bun with lettuce and tomato and wasabi dressing on the side...along with a mound of fries. Everything was delicious.....this will be my new "go to" when... More

Very similiar to a lot of other places in the area & considering that, it's a little pricey. The food was fine. The restaurant was clean & the service was quick enough.

In Wellfleet for a wedding just after Labor Day 2014. Met up with cousins & aunts that I hadn't seen for years. We met at PJ's and kinda took over the patio. Sorry if our volume was a bit much, but we're Greek & it had been years since we'd seen each other. Everyone enjoyed their ice cream treats. And... More

Not sure why the person from DC had a bad experience, but I've been going to PJs for many years and it's fantastic. Their lobster rolls are as good as they come as is pretty much everything else I've had there. I prefer going to PJs and sitting at the picnic benches than I do going to Moby Dick's, which... More

PJ'S really hit a home run with their Crab Cakes. Had to go back to see if they were consistent and they were. Light & not greasy at all, very fresh. Replay for the Very Best Lobster Rolls. Fresh buttery roll stuffed full of Lobster at market price. Friendly window service, clean outside seating (did not eat in) also great... More

Having spent many summers at the Cape in my youth, I returned after forty years with family and friends in a party of eleven for a lunch! We had a variety of items but my dish was the fried clam strips which I thoroughly enjoyed! Yes it brought back memories and the good times but it wasn't the best I... More

On our driving trip of Cape Cod, we stopped at PJ's for a lobster roll. Delicious! It's basically a stand on the side of the road, with an order-up counter, and tables outside and in. Not much of a view, but the lobster rolls were amazing! They were a little pricey, but being from a land-locked state, that's nothing new... More

We stopped by for a light and quick meal. Since they don't have raw oysters we just had a clam chowder. It was awful. Very watery and tasteless. Big chunks of potatoes and no clams. We already had better clam chowder in restaurant chains around Washington DC. This place is terrible.

Of course any place situated on Route 6 gets overwhelmed at the height of the summer-- and the view is mainly OF Route 6, but even then, locals and summer folks alike flock to PJ's for its unpretentious atmosphere, no-nonsense service and fresh, reliable fare. The varied menu--soup to nuts (plus ice-cream)-- includes heart-healthy specials and veggie dishes as well... More
