We had lobster rolls and French fries for lunch and they were absolutely the best we had in a week on Long Island!! And very reasonably priced compared to the 4 other restaurants we had them at. They had a wide variety of all kinds of seafood.

Was it because the server brought no bread, & didnt mention it til I questioned her & she said they had ran out of bread earlier & that if they had it, it woulda been just a small roll anyway? Was it because they brought my husbands plate out minus the fish he ordered & he had to call the... More

We stopped for dinner at the PJ Lobster House. We had been there years ago, but it is now a more fully developed restaurant. We had oysters on the half shell, fresh with classical mignonette sauce, excellent. The firecracker Calamari was not spicy at all and needed the help of some Tabasco. That said, it was among the best calamari... More

I had tuna, one partner had 1.5 Lb lobster and the other partner had crabmeat stuffed shrimp. Lots of food, well prepared. Sides were fresh and cooked properly.

I've been here a few times and you would expect more from a restaurant with a fresh seafood store attached. Don't. The first time I went I just remember that the acoustics made a crying child particularly hard to deal with. And I love children but really needed ear plugs. I returned, after a long hiatus, a few weeks ago.... More

My family was in the mood for seafood so we gave this place a try. The restaurant itself is very casual with a nice atmosphere. The waiting area sells fish. The restaurant was slightly busy but the service was horrible. We had a lovely waitress but she was basically handling the majority of tables in the dining room. It took... More

We enjoyed a family meal at Port Jeff Lobster House. I had the muscles which were delicious. The lobster bisque soup is amazing. The service is timely and the servers are friendly.

Very OK. Guy at fresh seafood counter at side entrance reluctantly answered questions about freshness and pricing. Service was poor inside restaurant and food was just ok. Very disappointed! Unlikely to return. Fish Store in Bayport on south shore is smaller but much better!!

Having been disappointed with the crowds and the casual treatment of guests at Mario's we went to this place, which has been in PJ since time immemorial, and found friendly service, a good atmosphere (despite tv screens on without sound), and all in all excellent seafood. Bit too much bread in some of the breaded dishes, but the grilled sea... More

Such a great place! We did not have reservations, but were seated immediately, and soon thereafter the place filled up with people that were there enjoying the place as much as we did.
