We have eaten at PJ's several times and have been very happy on each occasion. There is a huge selection of burgers and potato sides. The home made potato"chippers" are my favorite. I also like the deep fried mashed potato balls. Friday night fish fry is one of the best in the area. The fish is lightly battered, crispy on... More

Stopped in after driving by it so many times and am sorry I didn't stop sooner. Typical bar inside, sitting on the shore of Brandy Lake, a small stream flowing next door, summer time outdoor seating, and even some northwoods cabins to rent. There is a good selection of bottled beer, good bloodies, and a wonderful menu of a wide... More

Don't let the outside fool you, inside awaits some grate taste. Stopped there for lunch and the selection of burgers you should be able to find one to fit your taste buds. Came with homemade chips or you could order some fries if you want. Very friendly and welcoming when you walk in, food service was fast. Grate food awaits... More

We had a birthday party here in December. The weather and travel conditions were terrible but the food and service more than made up for it. Thanks for making the occasion fun for both adults and kids.

Great burgers - wide variety. Service is always personal and prompt. Daily specials including an All-Day Friday Fish Fry are very good and reasonably priced. Best cheese curds I have ever had. Great pizza too. A fun atmosphere, peanuts on every table and shells on the floor add to the charm of this local gem. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We landed here on accident. Friday night 9pm the day after Thanksgiving not many places were open. So after trying three other places we saw a food open sign and said looks like this is it. The decor was a typical Northwoods bar but with peanut shells on the floor. The menu is primarily burgers, but there are the other... More

Great burgers and cheese curds, the decor is classic north woods tavern and the peanut shells on the floor make it fun. Burgers are served come on a ciabatta bun and the only thing that would make it better would be to have various bun options. Looking forward to coming back and trying the Friday Fish Fry!

More than a dozen types of bugers.... really good. Don't bother with anything else unless you like straight from the Sysco bag into the fryer. Burgers..... don't waiver.

1st time stopping for a burger at PJ's. Sat by the window and was waited on right away. So many burgers to chose from. I had swiss and mushroom and my husband had bacon cheeseburger. They come with their own homemade chips but were a little salty for me. I had the fries and they were excellent. The burger tasted... More
