We wanted to eat at a different place, just driving down route 6 and spotted PJs with lots of cars parked. What a great place. A nice menu featuring all kinds of seafood, burgers, sides and ice cream. One may take out or eat in. One orders at the counter, your number is called and you pick up your food.  There is a side room with tab ... read more

Pjs is my favorite place in Wellfleet, arguably on all of the cape. As a Celiac, It's one of the only places where I can have clam chowder, lobster rolls AND French fries. On top of that, all their food just tastes great.

Good seafood, counter service
We ate here for a quick late dinner. My whole belly clams were sweet but a bit pricey at $14.95 for a clam roll with no sides. Others in the party had the chowder that tasted good but was light on clams. Salmon spinach salad...More ... read more

So happy to get to PJ's finally, after all this time away. They have the best burgers. They have the sweet red pepper relish that I love. Hopefully I'll get back once more for their fried clams!! Love this place.

I know you're probably not going to PJ's for burgers, but PJ's makes the best cheeseburger I have ever tasted without question. You can't go wrong here; it's my personal favorite for lobster rolls. But I need everyone to know about the burger. It's just really good!

Been coming here all my life, mostly summers, usually for the ice cream. Simply the best if you're looking for an authentic Wellfleet experience.

I have a friend currently living in Wellfleet and she loves this place! We got lunch here today on my visit out east and it did not disappoint.

I am more than satisfied with everything we've tried. We tried: steamed lobster (1 1/2 lb), fish taco (swordfish), lobster roll, fried oysters, fried calamari, and a caesar salad.

Stopped for lunch
PJ's was suggested by another restaurant that didn't serve lunch ! Glad I stopped ( with my elderly parents ) Two of us had the lobsta chowda and the other the clam ( with a side of fries) Everyone enjoyed the meal.... not cheap but you get what you pay for!

Over-priced tourist trap. But food is usually good (not great but good) and consistent.

Fantastic seafood! and food for others too.
We arrived at 8:20 (closes at 8:30). Counter staff cheerfully took our order and quickly we were on our way with Fish Tacos (grilled swordfish) and mac-n-cheese. We were both happy with our meals. Fish Tacos are awesome, so fresh!

Very large portions
We travelled from Provincetown to have some whole clams for lunch. They were served with coleslaw (average) and loads of fries and a bread roll which seemed freshly baked but superfluous. For me it was rather off putting as there was just too much food on the plate. The clams were good but it was sad to leave so much food behind to b ... read more

Great seafood and good for takeaway
It's a drive up/walk up window that you order from. You can sit in but some of the fun is the walk up. We ordered everything from broiled scallops, fish tacos, hotdogs, tuna sashimi and full rack of ribs. Everything was done really well. The girls at the window were friendly and helpful. We went 2 nights in a row.

Best damn Oysters
If you want a view of the marsh or any body of water this is not your place. If you don't like standing in line not your place. If you want a romantic seafood dinner not your place. But if you want the best freshest Oysters on planet earth.....THIS IS YOUR PLACE. The line moves quick.....but not quick enough for some.

Best clams on the Cape
Mark Bittman who does a NY Times cooking review said they had the best clams on the Cape. He was right but they also had great rare tuna tacos and baked chicken. We called ahead and our takeout order was ready in 15 minutes. They do have indoor seating also.

great onion rings
the seafood is good the onion rings outstanding. I was a little disappointed the lobster roll came with mayo vs the drawn butter I was hoping for. I should have read the menu more thoroughly. The whole bellies were good as were the fries. A good family friendly place.

Fish Taco
We've been eating at PJs couple of years, the food is good consistently. Our favorite meal is the Fish Taco made using Cod fish. We paid $11 for two tacos and 75 cents extra for avocado.

Ordered grilled swordfish tacos and lobster roll. The tacos were epic. Just epic. The dining area was sparkling clean and the staff was friendly.

Stayed on the Cape for two nights and had both dinners here. Exceptional food, good portion size, friendly waitstaff, comfortable. It's the Cape so it was a little loud at times and maybe the booth was a self-clean deal, but for the quality and taste and low prices, this place is unbeatable. Highly recommended.

We stopped by on a busy Saturday afternoon.  The lobster roll was excellent, light and bun is perfectly grilled.  The fried cod is fine, similar to many other cape sea shacks.  But this place really distinguished itself by  the grilled  tuna fish taco -- grilled to perfection, excellent chipotle sauce.

I like to pretend I am a connoisseur of clam chowder whenever I am at the Cape.  I have ordered it in every restaurant I've been to & in my opinion none matches P. J.'s.  I am not fond of creamy, thick chowder.  I like mine milky & that's what P.J.'s is.  It's filled with clams& is the best I've ever had.
Leslie L. via yelp.com - Aug 27, 2016

Fish tacos with your choice of tuna, swordfish, or salmon. Fresh and one of the best, especially the tuna cooked with can seasoning. Two to an order are more than enough.
