Fantastic Food
Walk up to the window or sit down inside, PJ's has not only the best lobster rolls but also the best burgers on the Cape. Fried clams, onion rings, chowdah's or ice cream, you will not be disappointed.

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.

It's one of our regular lunch stops on the cape. We make sure to stop on the way in, and before leaving. Great burgers, fries and franks.

Good food
We stopped here for lunch. They have both indoor and outdoor seating or take out. I had a salad which was just average. My husband had a fried seafood platter and lobster bisque. He said his meal was excellent. This is an easy place to stop when traveling route 6.

We missed PJ's on our last trip to the Cape.  We arrived the day they closed for the season so we had some making up to do. We had clam chowder, fried whole belly clams, steamers, onion rings and french fries and a grilled chicken breast for the dog. Oh and soft serve black raspberry ice cream for dessert.

Sea Air and Portuguese Kale Soup
This is one of the best places to get the delicious and famous Portuguese Kale Soup. But don't stop there, P.J.'s offers a menu replete with seafood favorites that will cause your stomach to thank you every time.

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.

best lobster roll in the world!!!!!! A summer favorite and a consistently good meal. Not cheap for fish shack food, but worth every penny- so fresh, so tasty.

We stopped here for lunch before heading to the beach after driving for the day from Boston . Our hearts sank when we were told there were no fried clams as the morning delivery had not arrived.

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. The fish was appropriately portioned with crispy fish but a little too much topping for my taste, also flour tortilla was the only option, and it wa... read more

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

I'm not going to mess with the stars of this restaurant, cause I only had the Dell's frozen lemonade.It was not good.Didn't taste like normal Dell's I've had in rhode island or even at Fenway park.  Tasted like slushed ice with sugar.  For $3.75 kinda rough.

Good casual place for seafood or burgers. They added a new section for seating since last summer. I recommend the broiled scallops. Also, the lobster chowder is really tasty.

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
Casual and delicious.
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.

The best "seafood and more" restaurant on the Cape!
Each year when we visit the Cape we eat at P.J.'s at least five or more times during the week. Sometimes for lunch, but more often for dinner.

Amazing local food spot. Reasonably priced quality food, with staff that couldn't be better. Inside can get loud when crowded, but as of 2016, their new outdoor seating is wonderful. Wide range of food, good portions, and fantastic flavors. Burgers are a staple, and some of the best kale soup around.

They've upgraded their (no longer) outdoor seating at this old standby. The food is often quite good and the menu has enough to keep everyone happy.

Last time we were here, I got the lobster roll, which is one of the best I've ever had. This time around, I opted for the fried calamari. While the calamari itself was tender and cooked perfectly, the breading was just a little too thick. It was also unseasoned. If they go with a thinner batter and put a touch of old bay in there, th... read more

Good, reliable, fast - but wish they didn't use so much styrofoam
We eat at PJ's every year and the quality is consistently good, service (counter order and pick-up) is very efficient, and the cost is reasonable. My only complaint is that even though other similar restaurants have eliminated styrofoam, PJ's still uses this environmentally damaging material.
CrunchyJax via tripadvisor.com - Aug 15, 2016
I REALLY liked the beet salad of all things. The woman who took our order at the window was also very helpful. Fish tacos were surprisingly disappointing--really bad tortillas. Would go back but would definitely avoid the fish tacos.

Great place for fried clams
We chose PJ's because of a review in the Boston Globe. I'm not sure if it's the best place on Route 6 for Fried Clams, but it does seem to have shorter lines than some of the others in Eastham and lower Wellfleet, and certainly shorter than Moby Dick's.

An under-recognized gem
While most traveler's to the outer Cape will eat their fried seafood (oysters, clams, shrimp, scallops) the real treat here is their "specials" which feature local grilled fish often with a nod to Portuguese cuisine that is the real local flavor.
