took my family here based on the reviews but we really didnt find the food to be that great. based on what we read, we thought that the clam chowder would be amazing...it wasn't. we found it to be rather bland and while i dont like very thick chowder, this broth was the consistency of warm milk with not a whole lot of clams. my son said that his chili dog was great!! my crab cakes were fair, more filler than i would have imagined for the price and a bit overpowered by garlic and red peppers...great crab doesnt need a lot of other flavors. the onion rings were a bit greasy as well. the girl at the counter was extremely friendly and pleasant however. maybe we just hit it on an off night?

I tried the hot fudge brownie sundae and it was delicious!! the chocolate syrup and the brownie are heated and it creates a perfect combination with the ice cream. however, i got a huge bowl and i couldn't eat it all. if you're going to get chocolate-covered soft ice cream on a cone, be prepared to get messy! one lobster is quite expensive. They also sell t-shirts.

went there for lunch. Read some good reviews about their fried clams, oysters, and deserts. It is just average, Moby Dick is better.

We've been dining at PJs for years. PJs has the best clam chowder anywhere, great lobster rolls, and ordinarily great fish sandwiches. It's quick and easy, with no pretensions.

PJ's is the best Lobster roll in Wellfleet. (lobster to roll ratio and toasted roll is just right), best frys in Wellfleet. This is really a spotlessly clean restaurant with excellent variety and quality. We have been taking our family there for years. This is an excellent choice for families with small children. We often call our order in and then head down to avoid the lines. Not fancy.
