More than a dozen types of bugers.... really good. Don't bother with anything else unless you like straight from the Sysco bag into the fryer. Burgers..... don't waiver.

1st time stopping for a burger at PJ's. Sat by the window and was waited on right away. So many burgers to chose from. I had swiss and mushroom and my husband had bacon cheeseburger. They come with their own homemade chips but were a little salty for me. I had the fries and they were excellent. The burger tasted... More

We have been coming to the Northwoods for 16 years and had never eaten here! We won't miss another vacation with out stopping here at least once. Hamburgers are really juicy and made to order. Friendly service and quaint atmosphere.

A quaint little bar with over 30 different burgers to choose from. Great service, and one of the best homemade Old Fashioneds around!

I had the Olive Burger and it was delicious, with sour cream! Most satisfying burger I've had in a long time. Great homemade chips, too.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and we were not too sure about the place. It looked on the inside more like a dive bar with peanut shells all over the floor. They had a good selection of beers. After an appetizer of fried cheese curds (which were great), our burgers came. Big and juicy. Made with fresh ground... More

First off - if you have a peanut allergy - stay away! They have buckets of salted peanuts in the shell on the tables and everyone throws the shells on the floor. So - there are shells and peanut dust everywhere. This isn't a bad thing - just would hate for a person to have a severe reaction as soon... More

Good spot to stop by and check out. Nearly 30 burger choices on the menu to choose from. There is a kids menu section with a few basic options; burger, corn dogs, chicken tenders & grilled cheese. No games to really entertain the kids other than the pool table. Decent view of a lake and there is an outdoor/porch seating... More
