My friend's brought me here for my birthday dinner. It was great food but the waitress, Tammy, was AMAZING! She was kind and funny and super patient with my friend's 5 year old daughter. She kept up on our drinks and kept our food coming too. You could tell she really cared. We drove an HOUR to come to THIS P.J. Whelihan's in Lehighton, PA and I would gladly do it again, if Tammy was there. Thank you Tammy for making my night even more special!

After day of skiing, family stopped here in way home for dinner. Hostess was super friendly. We ordered some apps. After about 45 min - 1 hr the apps finally came out. COLD. Guess they were sitting and never brought to us. Thinking it would help if we mentioned it (but not complaining) the Waitress didn’t care and blamed the kitchen. Then, another 45 min before our meals came out. All good was Dead cold!! It wasn’t even that busy. I try to remain very understanding and flexible, but the waitress didn’t even care. Grilled cheese- cold. Steak - cold. Broccoli - cold. Chicken tenders - cold. Wings - cold. Fries - cold. (At least the beer was cold.! ) Not acceptable. Very disappointed.

We traveled to Jim Thorpe for an overnight trip during the winters first snow storm. With everything closing down we were fortunate enough to find this pub less than a mile from our hotel. Great find. Friendly little pub with friendly employees and great food. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

This is a chain restaurant that serves standard chain restaurant food. Nothing special but solid and filling. Similar to a Chili’s or Applebees.

Was expecting the typical chain location and was shocked when it turned out to be an old tavern. The food was the same but the location made this place unique.

I belong to a Mah Jongg club and every year we have a luncheon and play MJ afterwards. The only and BEST place to do this is PJ’s!!! Rocky has been our waitress for years and she’s AMAZING!!! It truly is the iconic neighborhood bar that’s a second home-they treat you like you’re part of the family. The food is great, atmosphere same! We love PJ’s!!!!

We all had burgers but they were different than before. The manager said they have switched to a new burger supplier. Honestly it is now the same grease fire burger you get at grocery store. Poor quality and small portion - but at a high price. Run away - go to a real restaurant

We enjoyed P.J. Whelihan's Pub and Resaurant!! The food was amazing and the service was second to none. Rocky really took great care of us and Scott was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend P.J. Whelihan's Pub!!

We celebrated my birthday and Tammy our waitress was outstanding! I have to say it’s been awhile since I’ve had such a friendly and accommodating waitress. She even surprised me in the end with a huge ice cream sundae to share. The salmon was very good and my husband loved his Reuben sandwich. Thank you!

Clean and decent place. Limited menu due to covid-19 which is disappointing cause they had awesome prime rib but understandable. The waitress was super attentive and made sure we were taken care of. The food was good from shrimp tacos to a variety of burgers that we had. The brownie ice cream desert was a great ending.

We were in the area out from out of town, this place was close to where we were staying. We were skeptical about it being kid friendly, it definitely was. Service was friendly and we were seated quickly and our food was served quickly. I ordered fish and chips, the chips were great, the fish was just ok, nothing too special. I did like how it was multiple little pieces, making them crisp and flaky inside. My daughter had to have the hotdog, which is well.. a hotdog. She gobbled it up nevertheless. My hubby ordered a holiday chicken sandwich, size of it was a bit on the smaller side. Overall the food is good, and at the prices, a great deal.

I especially like their wings and burgers. They have a wing special that can't be beat. I believe the wing special is on Tuesdays. Try them.
