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

Went for clam chowder for take out. It was excellent. Very flavorful and full of clams and just enough potatoes. Some reviewers did not seem to like that it was thinner than they were used to but I would take this chowder any day over the super-thick floury stuff I have eaten elsewhere. Steamers were excellent with generous serving of... More

We love the quality and quantity at PJ's. Fresh. Fast. Reasonable for the market. The lobster roll is a personal favorite above all others and the fried fisherman's platter never fails to impress -- big enough for two! The additional of the new indoor-outdoor space is a major plus and shows that the owners are investing in the experience. Great... More

Yes, this looks like a side of the road shack that might not be anything special, but don't let that fool you. This is not your typical soft serve and fish and chips joint – the food here is really well prepared and delicious. Much better than their competitor on the harbor. We especially like the broiled scallops dinner.

We love PJs-lunch, dinner, snacks, ice cream. Menu has great variety of food, flavors and price points. We love the fried scallop rolls, tuna tacos, shrimp tacos, swordfish sandwich. Salads and specials too! Great ice cream/shakes. Don't miss out

Our tradition is to stop at PJs on our travels between Provincetown & Boston. They have a diverse menu, with local seafood, burgers, salads and ice cream, something for everyone. They have both an enclosed outdoor eating area and indoor seating with plenty of high chairs for the little ones. They have, IMO, the best lobster roll around. A heaping... More
