Although we have lived in the area for twenty years, this was our first visit. It was an OK experience. The restaurant consists of several rooms, dimly lit and pleasant enough. My wife and I had a standard meal. I had a "smothered rib eye" for $10.95. It was pretty good, thinly cut, flavorful and cooked the way I like... More

The food is fair and the atmosphere is very noisy. The wait staff is very busy. If you are a regular customer you get excellent service.

This being a local establishment, it is you have to know where it's at. Parking is good. Appetizer food was good, with large group, the service was limited , couldn't keep the buffet table of appetizers full. Was always behind, group for 90. Bar area service very good. Comfortable and friendly.

My husband had the cod which was delicious...I wish I would have ordered it. He had mixed vegetables and wild rice. I had the chicken wrap which was ok. We enjoyed the outdoor patio in the back which was quiet. The indoor seating was quite busy so I guess it's a popular place.

Very good neighborhood bar type meal offerings. I recommend the wings, the Beef & Brick or the PJ Burger. Those are my favorite! Been around for years and is a neighborhood favorite in Kirkwood.

I go here for the bison burger, as it is a little cheaper than the guys across the street. Street parking is hard to find and the public lot is across the street. Watch out for those ticket happy Kirkwood men in blue. LOL a decent bar menu. plenty to drink as well.

They have a great array of "bar food", which I love! Great hamburgers, wings, fires, pizza. The beer is cold, the atmosphere is warm and friendly, the service is good. Nothing not to like at P.J.'s

A number of coworkers from twenty years ago meet here about four times a year to catch up on news and share a bunch of laughs. The food here is very good and it is a pleasant place to stop. The service is great and the staff is very welcoming. We will be back in 2016!
