We went here twice first time was great. Second time was horrible. I don't understand what happened. No one is ever there, like never but they stay in business. I don't get it.

I thought that it was in a great location on the square but there were only a few people eating at noon on a Friday? I had a Philly sandwich and Fried green tomatoes, the sandwich was good but the tomatoes had an odd taste.

Very nice surprise at the end of a long day. Entire square brought back days gone by. Would for sure go back and recommend.

I have stopped in P J's a few times, usually for lunch. They have good food and the french onion soup is especially good. I have had several dishes and they all were enjoyable. They have fried cauliflower and it has a good breading but I am not a huge fan of the whatever they season it with. I personally... More

One of our constant niggles with our many road trips to the states is finding food that is fresh, well prepared and not seasoned to within an inch of its life. This was an unexpected find on a little quaint square in the centre of McDonough. There was a singer / guitarist playing and the restaurant wasn't busy. We had... More

I love this place. The porch at PJ's is where deals are made, and people watching gets good. The staff is always friendly and the Paul the owner will fix you something off the menu if you ask and he has the stuff to make it.

I have had lunch and dinner at PJ's several times. The food, service and atmosphere has always been a positive experience. Love the lobster bisque and a very fair price for the amount served.

PJ's Cafe is a quaint small cafe "On the Square" in McDonough, GA. The owner was trained as an Executive Chef in New York City and his food and desserts shows his special touch. I have eaten there many times including Sunday Brunch, Valentines Buffet and Mother's Day Brunch. The food and desserts are excellent!

While I enjoyed the colorful murals on the walls, I found my luncheon food to be just average. The service was prompt but the server seemed really bored with life.

Went for dinner on New Year's Eve. Really enjoyed the live music and the service was excellent. Food is very good and portions were large. Nice view of the downtown square from the tables at the front.
