“Surprisingly decent bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I had dinner here twice, and had beverages twice. In terms of service, timing is everything. The times I had dinner there was an adult at the bar, and service was VG. The other times there were 20 somethings, and they were more interested in their iPads than serving customers.

First night I tried Caesar salad with steak. It was VG. Nice green romaine, a flavorful steak, likely skirt, properly cooked, and a generous serving . Very reasonably priced. The next night I tried the trio of wonton wraps. They were Ok. An issue was that the temperatures varied. Some clearly were cooked earlier than others. Can't really recommend that.

All in all PJ's was above average for hotel bar food.

“OK at times”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This pub in the Hllton used to be a regular stop, not for the food but rather the bar crowd. The food was straight fried bar nosh and usually too greasey to really like. The drinks were good but staff turnover has had the regulars find other places to be. You may have to instruct the bartender to get you favorite libation. Sunday night Scranton pretty much closes up, as did this bar's kitchen the last time we were in. Our snack ended up being chips and salsa. I would go for a night cap if I were staying at the hotel, but there are better place to hang out.
