After a lengthy military career, John Reeves decided it was time for wife Dorothy to return to her native home of Provincetown. Purchasing a restaurant along with brother-in-law Elmer Silva seemed like the perfect thing to do. So John and Dorothy moved with sons, Bill & Don, from Texas to Cape Cod in 1971. It wasn’t long before they had PJ’s Dari-Burger running and ready for business.

Since its opening, PJ’s has always been dedicated to using local, quality products and providing a good value for families. PJ’s started with the usual fare of fried clams, hot dogs, burgers, homemade clam chowder, and onion rings, and of course soft serve ice cream. The menu expanded in 1993 to include lobsters, steamed clams and mussels, broiled, baked and grilled seafood, along with a variety of salads and homemade soups, including the popular Portuguese “kale soup.” The menu continues to grow to include homemade items such as fried chicken, crab cakes, stuffed clams, and a variety of seafood specials. With so much to choose from, it’s hard to pick a favorite!!
