Nice juicy tacos stuffed with big hunks of fish - very filling with tasty coleslaw and sauce. Never changes. Can count on it. Can also count on tasteless side of dry bean corn salsa they call it — blahhhh throw it in the trash.

We stopped here after leaving Cahoon Hollow, looking for a quick seafood lunch. The mussels with garlic were cooked perfectly, though I would have liked a bit more in the broth. The lobster roll was chock full of lobster, which didn’t have too much mayonnaise,...More

PJ's is a lot of fun, and the steamers are a good value. It is down-home and not snooty. That's a plus. I plan to have a bowl of steamers here every day on my next visit.

We stopped here based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. We met the owner as soon as we exited our vehicle and asked what was good. You don’t want an owner that looks like a twig, you want one that enjoys his own fare....More

Now we know why this was reviewed by Yankee Magazine. Clean, fresh, quick. I had the fried cod taco that was scrumptious and the clam chowder won’t disappoint if you like a buttery flavor! A must try for on the go, or dine in.
