Had the lobster roll and fried clams both were great. Lobster roll is a must buy at $20 a bit expensive. The clams were good wish they'd hold the fries and add more clams. Overall highly recommended.

Let me just start by saying the food was great. Cod,crab cakes and cod tacos. Kids chicken was out of a bag, so not so great. I did feel like it was a bit over priced for a "fast food" setting. If you want good seafood and quick this is your place.

Fabulous lobster rolls and fries on the road to Provincetown. Well worth a stop! Overfilled rolls with just a touch of mayo on toasted bun.

PJs is a Wellfleet institution! If you're in the area, you have to stop by for a lobster roll, a cheeseburger, or a bowl of clam chowder -- all of which will be wonderful. You order at the window outside or at the counter inside. This year, they enclosed the area where they used to have picnic tables. Not as... More

1st off we chose this restaurant because of the GF options promoted on the website and Gluten free for me app...do not go here if you are Gluten Free! I was almost served a piece of breaded fish on a gluten free bun. The mussels ordered were poor quality and mush, I guess you get what you pay for. Everyone's... More

Yes, it's funky, it’s got highway noise, there is no air-conditioning, and you mill around in the parking lot with all the other flip-flop shod patrons to pick up an order. Note that this review is based on one meal. But, PJ’s had better food than the more upscale seafood restaurants we ate at in the immediate area. We had... More

Nice spot for a quick lunch. Good salads, sandwiches. Place your order at the counter and they call your number. I had a salad that was very filling and good. My wife got the kale salad and found that it was too much kale-it would have been better mixed with other greens.

My family and I came here shortly after arriving in Wellfleet. I had the garden salad with grilled cajun salmon, while the rest of my family ordered fried fishwiches. The salad was fresh and tasty, and the salmon was quite lightly seasoned (perhaps slightly more would have been preferable). However, it didn't distinguish itself very much from other salmon salads... More

If you are looking for fried clams and similar food, this is the place to go. They have very good whole belly fried clams (also a clam strip choice) and many of the foods that most associate with summer selections on the Cape. They also have soft and hard ice cream--which was very good. The food service was fast, but... More
