“A fun place to watch the game”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I have been to PJ's many times. The service and wings are always very good. It is always very crowded but the wait is never long. This is a great place to take the kids also. There are many televisions so everyone's favorite sports will be covered.

“Average, very average.”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

While the beer list is always impressive, the service is uneven and the food is just mediocre. The restaurant is always VERY noisy and this makes it hard to have a conversation with friends. We gave it three tries, but would not go back again.

“Save your money”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

I've never written a review to say how bad a restaurant is, but I thought it a public service to warn people about this place. Overpriced food that was partly inedible, and then they tell you there will be "an extra charge" for the item as quoted on the menu. I was also told I was not allowed "outside beverages were not allowed" when I tried to drink the soda I just brought in with me. REALLY?
The place is staffed by young ladies in tight pants or shorts and tight tee shirts, with prominent advertisement their "wing and beer specials". Clearly they are trying to compete with Hooters or the Tilted Kilt. Maybe they should just focus on trying to make a decent meal at a reasonable price instead.

“Terrible service and good beer”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

I have been here to meet friends and get food and drinks several times. Each time I vow to never return and don't understand why people are in there. Each time the food order has come back incorrect and made poorly. The servers are incompetent, unresponsive, rude. The bathrooms do not seem to be cleaned regularly and are nasty. The only plus is the beer selection, however your waitress will likely not place the correct order or not bring the beer within 15 minutes
