We went to PJs for my husbands birthday as we were vacationing in Mountain View and this was the closest "fine dining" establishment around. After a beautiful (yet long) drive there we were about ten minutes late for our reservation. We were told our table had been given away despite making reservations months in advance and informing them it was... More

My husband and I dined here to celebrate his retiring. We were joined by another couple. We had surf and turf, a chicken pasta dish and a ribeye steak. All were very good. After trying my husbands pasta I wished I had ordered the same thing. Service by our waiter was excellent. It is nice to dress up for dinner... More

New owners since I was there last. Very sweet, friendly, and doing a good job. The sweet little girl in the picture was our hostess. my friend and I has Sangria at the bar, which was good. And we both ordered the Walleye. Very tasty.

Small group of us went for dinner. Ambiance was nice, table setting was very nice, service was stellar, but without a doubt, the food was the highlight. Pork shanks, sea bass, crab cakes, surf and turf...all of it was great, cooked perfectly and presented well. Desserts also didn't disappoint, with everything from key lime pie to white chocolate bread pudding.... More

This was my first visit. We dined on a Saturday evening so we did make reservations before going. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant is decorated elegantly with a view of the river and there is a full bar. Clean, crisp white linen table cloths and napkins, adorn the tables. Plenty of staff, so our server was...

Lovely location on the White river. Cozy and the food is great. Not only can you stay there in a sweet room, but get to sit on the deck near the river.

I expected a lot for this place because of the high rankings, high prices, and good word of mouth we got for it. But we were disappointed. This was supposed to be my birthday dinner. To be fair - we couldn't get a reservation during prime time - so we ate late. I think the problem was that they ran... More

The food is wonderful and it is always so hard to decide what to order. We will be coming back as often as we can when we are up at the White River.

PJ's is one of the best restaurants and lodges around. Second time to eat there and the food and service was excellent. First time to stay at the lodge! The rooms were great and again the owners bent over backwards to make everything comfortable. I would highly recommend PJ Lodge and Restaurant. You will not be sorry! Randy

They require reservations, which seemed odd considering the location, but!! The food and service were 5 Star quality. A rare find. If you're in the area, don't pass up the opportunity to dine here. A wonderful experience, gorgeous river view and not your typical Arkansas restaurant menu. Not a single complaint about anything we ate. The bread and butter were... More
