Nice dinner

We had a lovely dinner(e.g. Fried scallops, onion rings, fried oysters and clams). Everything was delicious with the exception of the scallops which were a bit overcooked. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff.

Thirty years eating at PJs and I still love it. The clam and lobster chowders are great. Plenty of meat and thick broth, not overwhelmed with too much cream. The fishwich is always perfectly fried.

Every time we go to the cape, a visit to PJ's is a must! I always get the lobster roll and am bever disappointed, It is filled with fresh sweet lobster with a light amount of mayo and served on the typical New England toasted roll. Delicious! My friend had the mussels and raved about them as well. the kids... More

Their signature taco uses a white fish, with a chipotle sauce on top of two flour tortillas. You can also choose grilled shrimp, lobster or grilled chicken (I believe) and for toppings; cheese, guacamole and salsa. For my gluten free friends, there is an option for corn tortillas as well. I highly recommend this place and if you do go,... More

Fun casual place. You can order at the window and take home or eat inside. Great menu with lots of comfort food. Loved the lobster rolls and ice cream.

Ok, this is an excellent place for lunch and for lightly fried fish entres. I am not a big fan of fried fish--too often restaurants substitute heavy batter for fish. P.J.'s does an excellent job of keeping the fry light and the fish fresh and flavorful. I especially like it for lunch and cod sandwich.

We ate here twice during our week vacation in North Truro. The first time was for lunch for 14 people and the second time was dinner for my husband and me with our 5 grandchildren. Believe it or not the wait was short and both times we sat in the lovely shaded picnic tables outside. The food was really good.... More

Consistently delicious, much more expansive menu than you would imagine, perfectly prepared lobsters, fish, and other goodies. Fried oysters and scallops are the best on the Cape.
