Good fried seafood and chicken

tasty fried clams, fish, and chicken were what we ordered. All were very good. Onion rings were good. Takes a while for food to come out, so don't be impatient. They also have good ice cream.

One of the best fish sandwiches around. We await their opening every spring. Seating inside and out.

After viewing this restaurant on a travel show, we just had to try it out. It was very good. I had the small lobster roll. It was very tasty and just the right size, Our son tried the chicken fingers with fries. He is a super picky eater, but he loved the chicken so much that we had to return... More

PJ's is the quintessential seafood bar! Everything you could possibly want from fried clams to lobster and delicious Portuguese dishes as well! They are very accommodating to the Gluten Free diner and know all the ingredients! Their chowder is Gluten Free and delicious! We always go to PJs when we are on the Cape for food and delicious sundaes!

Each year we come back home to visit the Cape and we always stop at PJs in Wellfleet for dinner. As a kid, I remember driving up from Truro on Saturdays to get fried clams and then some icecream. PJs is still the same great place now as it was 25 years ago. Great quality seafood, generous serving sizes, friendly... More

P.J.'s was the best of both worlds; ordering food outdoors with the option of eating indoors. The fried whole belly clams were out of this world, and my husband enjoyed the Cajun swordfish. Definitely worth the trip!

We always stop here on the way to our house in Wellfleet. The food is always hot, fresh and the frappes are off the chart. If your ever on 6A in Wellfleet you gotta stop here and have a great meal.

Nice, meaty lobster roll. Clam chowder is the thin type but delicious flavor and loaded with clams. Lobster chowder was thick and loaded with lobster and flavor. Don't miss the fresh, homemade onion rings. A true local New England experience.

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.
