“It's Seen Better Times”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Wife and I went to PJ's for some salad and calamari. The calamari was not over-fried (which makes it rubbery), but my wife said she thought the taste was a little off -- perhaps due to the grease in the fryer. The Caesar salad was pretty large, with probably a dozen anchovies (on request). The salad dressing was, to put it mildly, terrible. I guess it will be awhile before we eat there again.

All you can eat pizza is a joke...it looked and tasted like a poor quality frozen pizze from the grocery.

“Typical beach restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This restaurant is typical of what you might find on the beach. The food was very good. My niece had a huge plate of crab legs and she loved them. We had the usual shrimp and fish plates and it was good as well. You get your money's worth.

“Had great food, and a great time...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

My Husband had eaten here years ago, but I never had. He wanted Seafood, and asked if I would mind him driving to get it (some 28 miles).

We arrived around 5:30 so we were able to choose an Entree off of their Early Bird menu. Usually we pick two different things, but we both thought that their Seafood Platter sounded good, so we went for it!

Our food was delivered promptly by our very friendly waiter, presentation was excellent (square plates are beautiful) and so was the food! We could no way finish it...large portion on each plate was more than enough for two. Price was a very reasonable $11.99, and that included our Soda's!

We boxed most of the stuff to take home; but had to try their Fried Dough Dessert...so glad we did! What a lucious concoction...Fried warm bread dough sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, topped with warm cinnamon apples AND a great big glob of Vanilla Ice Cream...it was absolutely yummy!

I know we will be back, and soon I hope...place is casual and bubbly...no stuffy stuff!

Be aware that prices after 6:00 are quite a bit more, so if that matters to you, get there early!
