PJ's moved into their new building a couple years ago. The outside seating is nicely decored with tiki hut and bar seating. Live entertainment plays in this area as well when offered. Only smokers can handle sitting outside unfortunately as the smoke is unbearable...too bad as the inside has a cold feel...a big open room with cafeteria style seating.. bar... More

This lace is always busy! The outside deck is fun, often has music and a great place to relax. The food is typical seafood and good quality. They sell great tee shirts, hats etc.

Ate there Friday night. First of all no more entertainment out side. Not sure why. I ordered clam chowder and defy you to find a clam in there. Just pasty filler. The others ordered gumbo and said the same thing ...no seafood could be found. I had oysters Rockefeller for an entree. They were small oysters with looked like processed... More

I've lived in the Clearwater area since 1979. I've eaten at hundreds of restaurants in the area. I hadn't been to PJ's in a while so I decided to stop in. It used to be pretty good when they were based across the street from their new location. I ordered the mussels. Never EVER have I seen such small mussels.... More

Favorite place to eat every time we visit IRB. No other place tops PJs. The new outdoor seating is perfect. Service is always great and the food is devine. Live music on some evenings to keep you entertained. Put down your phone and sing along and enjoy.

You can tell by the people waiting outside that this is a popular place but they have plenty of seating both indoors and out. Food is very good and average price, very noisy but again that's because of it's size and popularity.

My husband and another couple had lunch at PJs, and I was expecting a mediocre 'beach' bar/dive. I was so surprised! The food was just delicious! We ordered some appetizers first (cup of clam chowder, hush puppies, the baked oysters) and everything was just a cut above. We ordered 4 different entrees and there wasn't a complaint at the table.... More

Maybe we caught them on an off night, but our service was slow and the food marginal. IF you see a line out the door into the parking lot, be prepared to wait. They don't take reservations. We were a little concerned when we entered the front door and there was a sign that said, "Chef wanted."

Adrian was a great server. He exceeded expectations for service and overall welcoming attitude. PJ'S gets an A+ all the way around!

My wife and I along with another couple went there. The place was extremely crowded, the food was nothing stellar and served cold. I prefer my seafood hot as did the rest of the party. The restaurant was extremely loud and uninviting.
