“Local's hole in the wall seafood joint”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

Our hotel sent us here and it was a good change of pace. Walls covered in signed dollar bills from guest. Paper town rolls hanging above each table. Large selection of beers.

The seafood gumbo was spicy and tasted like Maryland crab soup but with scallops and shrimp instead but I loved it. I had a trio of Mahi Mahi, grouper and amberjack all blackened. Very good and fresh.

The staff was great with a character of a bartender and our waitress was friendly and even helped with some t-shirts right at the table.

“Standard stuff.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

It's okay, but don't expect a clean place with great service. It is a shame that this area doesn't have much in the way of chef prepared cuisine. This is an old building with staff in t-shirts. Oysters and clams are always available. I just wish they had more than average menu items and service.

“Good food and Great Value”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went there last Friday night with friends who go there often. I had the Seafood Gumbo and it was great. We had a shrimp and another fish appetizer that were very good and I had the Grouper dinner - very good. Prices are very reasonable and we would definately go back when in the area.

“Great food”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Stopped here as soon as we unpacked. The grouper sandwich was fantastic! It was packed with families having dinner, a couple locals at the bar.

“Great Grouper Sandwich”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We come to PJ's every year we visit Indian Shores Beach. Can't go wrong with The Grouper Sandwich which we order Blackened or Grilled. Great place for lunch. The Price is fair good value.
