I would not drive an hour just to eat there but if I were in the area I would definitely return! Very professional and friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices.

“not bad for a chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

PJ Whelihan's...Burgers, fries, brews. Average, nothing spectacular. It's in my backyard and the last time I was there prior to this is about 5 years ago. Before it was Whelihans it was not a chain and the good chef left and legend has it it's the guy that has Normal Square Restaurant. Go there instead.

“Drink specials are incredible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We enjoyed a meal and drinks with friends on a Saturday night. We arrived at 5:30pm, toward the beginning of happy hour (5-7). They have many $5 mixed drink specials that were incredible. We tried almost all of them, some of them many times. The food was good, comperable to what you'd find at an Applebee's. The chicken quesadilla appetizer was great but the mozzeralla sticks were just ok. We ordered chicken parm, baked ziti, filet minon, sirloin and it was all good. The waitress was great and the price was reasonable considering how much we drank. If we return to the area we will definitely return to Platz's/P.J. Whelihan's.

“Always busy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I like Platz's. Food is good, we like sitting at the bar where there is always good conversation. Upstairs if good for the family to sit and dine. Always crowded.
