This place always has a line! The breakfast selection is very good, as they offer different types of pancakes and eggs, however the inside of the restaurant is very small and cramped and if you aren't lucky enough to get a private booth, you could be seated at the long table with strangers.I personally don't like waiting in line for...

Very good food and service is quick. This place is very popular for breakfast and brunch but ir is also a very good place for dinner and there is always space available.

This isn't a huge place, so if you go during breakfast/brunch times, you are going to wait. I have only had the pancakes, and they are all very good. They give you a lot of options on not only pancakes, but breakfast and lunch items.

While visiting with my family we popped into PJ's and sat at a community table and had a great breakfast amongst the locals. No one gets eggs over medium right which is why they got a 4 versus a 5 but a fun place to feel like you are a local. Food was good, service ok.

This place had the largest pancake offering on their menu that I've seen. And when I travel the world, I seek out good breakfast places. It's a quaint little place across from campus, the tables are cramped and the staff all seem very rushed. But, ignore all that and enjoy the pancakes. Really. Go for the sampler to enjoy a... More

I absolutely love this place. As a local, it is always considered as a meal to eat once a week. I have only ever had breakfast food there, but I know their burgers and pasta are just as good. I will get the same, smore's pancakes every time I go, but they never get old. This is also the cheapest... More

An absolute favorite restaurant. You may find there is a line on the weekends, but its definitely worth the wait. The conviviality of the place will set the tone for the rest of your day. Can't recommend it highly enough!

If I could give 0 stars I would. Horrible service followed by the server never coming back to take our check so we had to pay a manager who ended up charging my card 2 times. I got the charge notifications right when it happened and brought it to a managers attention.He assured me that it was their fault and... More

The food is good here and covers the range of any picky eater. Great pancakes are always a must. But there are good salads and good burgers and sandwiches too. The thing that we like the most is the atmosphere of Princeton about the place. Your wood table will be carved with memories of many who have sat there before... More

PJ's is a small place so expect to wait especially on weekends. Whether this or any restaurant is worth the wait is a matter of opinion. I choose not to wait. So the six of us had lunch at PJ's during the week; only a 5 minute wait (even though the table we sat at was empty when we arrived).... More
