Everything was good just not great. It was recommended by motel. It is a bit unique being in a old building that had seating and a bar on each floor. We were in the upstairs area. The salad that came with the meal was lacking.

Great venue and with an excellent menu. Lots to choose from if you are looking for their wings, burgers or any meals. Every meal that passed our table looked incredible. Glad we decided to visit P.J. Whelihan's Pub & Restaurant

This restaurant is an historic building in a great location in Jim Thorpe, PA. The menu offered several delicious choices, specialty drinks and more. Prices were affordable and ambiance was great. Our server (Pamela) was terrific! She was very attentive and offered great advice for our food and drink selections. We will return to P.J. Whelihan's and bring our friends!

I gave it a 3 because we stopped twice, once had great food & a nice time, stopped back a few days later and left due to a really bad waitress. We stopped on Sunday. It was busy, but they really had a handle on it. We commented on how flavorful everything was. The clam chowder, killer shrimp (delicious!), perfectly... More

Definitely my favorite place to eat in Lehighton and the surrounding area. A sports bar and grill with a variety of surf and turf meals and reasonable prices. My favorite thing about P.J. Whelihan's is the atmosphere. Always warm and inviting

Now that I no longer live in the area, when I am home I make a trip to PJ's every time. Although I end up ordering the same thing, I am never disappointed. Service is always on point and the hot n honey wings/sauce is great. They typically have a rotating seasonal menu that has some great sounding items.

I've been here a couple of times, and have pretty much gotten the same thing each time I went. They don't have very much of a selection. I tried their special one time, and it was very lack luster.

This visit three of us actually tried the haddock. We were all pleasantly surprised. The flavor was very good. Came with a salad and baked potato. Price was reasonable as we were early and got the 2.00 discount. Other member of our group got the prime rib. The place was very crowded for just opening. Our wait staff was prompt... More

Being somewhat new to the area, we gave it a try. What an excellent choice. The service was GREAT, and the food and drinks were fantastic.
