This was the first place I tried Florida Gulf fresh grouper. I had it battered and fried with coleslaw and fries. It was good! The fish was cooked just right and had a great taste. I also tried the gator bites which were good, and the dungeonous crab which was awesome. The food was good, and we'll worth the $17 I paid for it.
The atmosphere was very casual, with tables crammed everywhere and paper towel rolls hanging from the ceiling. Our waitress was okay, but they were crazy busy so it was to be expected.
Great for families on a budget or people looking for quality seafood in a super casual atmosphere.

We were on vacation at the beach, and it was "seafood night" so we decided to go to PJ's. When we pulled up at around 6:30 the parking lot was very full (a good sign). There was a small wait until we got our seat. The waiter came by and took our drink order. He promptly returned with our drinks. That will be the last time I use the word prompt in this review.

After the drinks came, we mulled over the menu and decided what to order. We looked around for our waiter and he was seen ducking in the back. He didn't return for a good 5-7 minutes. When he did, he had some sort of sports drink in his hand and drinking. He finally came to our table and took our order. Another person delivered the food. The waiter didn't stop by after the food arrived to check on it's acceptability.

This became a pattern; having to hunt down our waiter for drink refills etc... The food was excellent. I had the Grouper sandwich and my wife had the crab cakes. Both dishes were piping hot and prepared perfectly.

If the waiter had been more present, this would have been an excellent dining experience. Unfortunately, his poor service only made the overall vist just "Very Good".
