Been coming here all my life, mostly summers, usually for the ice cream. Simply the best if you're looking for an authentic Wellfleet experience. I always order from the outside windows: food on the left, I cream on the right. The food menu is plentiful and diverse while the ice cream menu is simply spectacular. Hard, soft, twist, dip, jimmies,... More

PJ's was suggested by another restaurant that didn't serve lunch ! Glad I stopped ( with my elderly parents ) Two of us had the lobsta chowda and the other the clam ( with a side of fries) Everyone enjoyed the meal.... not cheap but you get what you pay for!

PJ's has delicious fried seafood at reasonable prices. It's perfect for families. The ice cream is beyond compare and the staff is lovely.

We arrived at 8:20 (closes at 8:30). Counter staff cheerfully took our order and quickly we were on our way with Fish Tacos (grilled swordfish) and mac-n-cheese. We were both happy with our meals. Fish Tacos are awesome, so fresh!

We travelled from Provincetown to have some whole clams for lunch. They were served with coleslaw (average) and loads of fries and a bread roll which seemed freshly baked but superfluous. For me it was rather off putting as there was just too much food on the plate. The clams were good but it was sad to leave so much... More

Chicken tenders and the fish and chips were so good! Beautiful outdoor eating space. Dog friendly. Very clean. Nice people. Tons of free parking. Stop and eat! Ice cream and Italian ice so yummy.

I'm probably going to get flamed for this but get the grilled swordfish tacos (excellent) and not the lobster roll (distinctly average)! Walk up service is efficient and eating in the porch area to the right make the lunch/dinner stop very efficient and easy. Would probably call again fro the tacos if passing

Walk up to the window or sit down inside, PJ's has not only the best lobster rolls but also the best burgers on the Cape. Fried clams, onion rings, chowdah's or ice cream, you will not be disappointed.

It's a drive up/walk up window that you order from. You can sit in but some of the fun is the walk up. We ordered everything from broiled scallops, fish tacos, hotdogs, tuna sashimi and full rack of ribs. Everything was done really well. The girls at the window were friendly and helpful. We went 2 nights in a row.

We stopped here for lunch. They have both indoor and outdoor seating or take out. I had a salad which was just average. My husband had a fried seafood platter and lobster bisque. He said his meal was excellent. This is an easy place to stop when traveling route 6.
