My family stopped here for a bite to eat after spending the day at the beach. We tried the fish tacos, onion rings, and the Italian Baked Cod which was one of the many dinner specials. The cod special was huge and delicious!! After our meal we wanted to grab ice cream for dessert. We walked up to the counter... More

Good casual place for seafood or burgers. They added a new section for seating since last summer. I recommend the broiled scallops. Also, the lobster chowder is really tasty.

Fish tacos with your choice of tuna, swordfish, or salmon. Fresh and one of the best, especially the tuna cooked with can seasoning. Two to an order are more than enough.

Each year when we visit the Cape we eat at P.J.'s at least five or more times during the week. Sometimes for lunch, but more often for dinner. The seafood is excellent, the salads are great, and the soups are unbelievable! The price is fair and the service is excellent. We like going to the counter inside, then we bring... More

We went for the stuffed clams which were our greatest disappointment. A dry fist sized scoop of a mixture dominated by bread. Could be tasty, but wasn't. The mussels with a tomato base were way over cooked. Half were left behind. The same for the fried clams which were overcooked and probably came out of the freezer. The only bright... More

Advised by our Boston cousins we have taken tha chance of eating in this funny place on the highway between Wellfleet and Truro. Great NE clam chowder, fried clams, lobster rolls and fries for 4 people at about 75$. Onion rings were finished (big disappointment)

Everything is fresh! My favorite is the cold lobster roll which is served on a split bun with just the right amount of mayo. My husband loves their fried whole belly clams-the coating is crispy and light
