I have been driving past this place for years and finally went in. They were open early on a Sunday so we thought we would take a chance. The place is nice, you walk in to a fish market that is clean and bright, all the seafood looks fresh and is displayed nicely. The staff was welcoming and sat us... More

Went to PJs this past Friday - it being Lent n all I thought it would be packed. It wasn't too busy, so we were seated right away. Service was excellent. I had the crab cakes. They were pretty good but a bit too much on the bread ingredients. I had their spaghetti with marinara as a side and surprisingly... More

The food is good. Snow crab delicious, lobster roll ok - had better. We ordered from lunch for two. Worth the price. It came with soup, appetizer, main course and desert.

We visit PJ Lobster House on Tuesdays. They have a special of all you can eat crab legs and they are wonderful. With the special you get soup and two sides. The lobster bisque is delicious and filled with big pieces of lobster. Service here is excellent too. A little pricey but worth the treat.

One of our favorites for seafood and beer, plus we can watch sports on the 2 large screen TV's. Baked clams are outrageous and the Clambake with Steamers phenomenal. Service is excellent and the Port Jeff Orange Dream beer is heavenly!

Have been here any times...always been very good. This time came a little late and the place was being decorated for the holidays. They could have waited until after hours....staple guns and all the fussing with the decorations made us eat and run. And the prices have gone up alot. $75 for two smallish pieces of fish and a tiny... More

After being sick, I craved crabcakes and seafood. No bar to sit at since it's a small restaurant and fresh seafood store. Had the crabcakes, of course, and the salmon with mustard. Both were delicious and so was the bottle of Riesling. Would eat there again as it's local and been around for over 20 years.

The restaurant has a wet fish shop attached, we entered via the shop. It had a good supply of fish and crustaceans laid our which looked very attractive this was in contrast to the restaurant which seemed soulless and dull only two tables were occupied.

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.
