PJ'S is THE place to be for a St. Patricks day celebration. But any day is a good day to try out their menu. Good food & family restaurant an pub.

Food was good. Service was slow need more vegetarian options like a veggie burger or sandwich with only cheese and veggies. Ordered a sandwich without meat and charged the same price. Did take some off once asked.

Service was slow. Took forever just to get drinks and had to wait even longer to order. Then had to wait another 30 minutes for two quick sandwiches and fries. Fries were greasy and cold. Felt like we were forgotten again and again.

When you are told by the waitress that they are short kitchen staff...you should run out the door. In this case we had already placed our order and had already waited 45 minutes for a few appetizers and two sandwiches when she made this statement.

Standard bar food, good service and friendly atmosphere. The drinks are a bit light on the alcohol content for the price. It was a nice place to stop after golfing at Summitt Country Club, which is quite close.

My title here should tell you everything that you need to know about PJ's. We have been enjoying food and drink and family and friends at this friendly place for over 25 years. The menu is very nice, the food never fails and they have Guinness on tap. The staff are unfailingly warm and friendly and on task.

On old US 22 in this small town. They do have very good Pizza, Wings, and Bar food and of course cold beer. You won't be disappointed and I am sure you would return.

Great bar pizza. We often order here for take-out. They also have a great "Portage Railroad" (steak sandwich) This is not just a bar with food. It is a very family oriented establishment

We have gone to PJ's for years and it never fails to please. The staff are wonderful, the Guinness is creamy and the food is tasty. I highly recommend the baked hoagie. My wife loves the Irish salad.
