Good Food

We went with four adults and two young boys. Although the boys were treated very nicely I wouldn't call the place kid friendly. Service is slow and it's more a place for dining than for getting a quick dinner. The food however was very good. My wife and I had the duck which was nicely prepared. The... read more

We were celebrating a milestone birthday for a family member and ate here while staying on the Cape. The birthday celebrant had a friend with a cottage in Wellfleet who loved this place. Most of us ordered the scrumptious pan-fried sole with a featherlight almond crust. Fabulous! I also had the clam chowder, wonderfully fresh without being too creamy and... More

This is an order at the counter and pick up your own food, kind of place. We just squeaked in on the last day PJ's was open for the season. The fish tacos were out of this world! Guacamole was so fresh! My companion had crab cakes which she also said were excellent. She enjoyed the clam chowder, but felt... More

What a shock that this once good oldie serves the worst food we have ever had. Soup kitchens serve better! Avoid if you can unless you enjoy wasting time and money.

We've frequented JPs for over 20 years. The menu hasn't changed much because it doesn't have to! It's a Guaranteed hit. Every dish is good, some are amazing like linguine with either white or red clam sauce. The red is my favorite and I can't order it anywhere else now because no place else is even close. Some other favs:... More

Hubby and I, with another couple, had a great evening at Finely JP's last night. The Caesar salad was amazing with JP's homemade dressing and the freshest Romaine leaves, so crunchy and deep green. Someone in our group ordered the beef appetizer, the other an oyster appetizer, all was very good and delicious. For main courses, we had the vegetarian... More

Haven not been here in years but have been 2 times this summer. Great menu selections We had scallop salad and calamari salads, both delicious. Salads $9 and $12. 4 grilled scallops on spinach!! Grilled swordfish and a risotto dish, again delicious, Sword was $27 Decent wine list, Suggestion: upgrade the wine glasses, cheap small wine glasses

One of our favorite spots. Excellent for dinner & also Sunday brunch. Gorgeous building, very open & bright. The staff is the best. We love the outdoor patio for the summer.

We had not been to J Ps in a few years. It has been very nicely renovated. The atmosphere is relatively quiet with relatively small dining areas. The service was good but their speciality, Wellfleet Paella, a disappointment. It had adequate shellfish, but was lacking flavor expected of paella. It had no socarrat, the key to good paella. I think... More

This is one of the elite dining venues in Wellfleet. A superb kitchen offeris a moe limited menu for dinner with dishes that are tasty as well as creative. Tonight we started with lobster bisque followed by pork tenderloin on one side of the table and almond-crusted sole on the other. Good portions of food that were both creatively cooked... More
