Went for a late Dinner on a Sunday evening, were seated at a high top on their very large patio. Draft beer selection was large and well curated in my opinion, with local beers well represented. For apps we had wings and fried pickles. I ordered the wings "hot", by my standards they were medium. Temperature wise they were only warm, and not crispy as I like them, I believe they sat out while waiting for the fried pickles which were very hot.

Wife and I both had Cobb salads which were tasty and very nicely presented.

This place has it all tons of tv’s showing all kinds of sports! You have your choice of sitting inside or on the patio! The menu has numerous options to choose from and they also have a monthly special menu! Drinks are cold and the wait staff are the nicest and friendly people you could have serve you! Recommend this place Highly!!

We ate here a couple weeks ago. It was my first time there and even on a weeknight there was a super long wait. We didn't mind, but specifically asked for a spot outside on the patio. After awhile, the pager went off, but when they took us to the table, it was inside... Rather than make an issue out of it, we just took the table, but the entire reason we had come there was because the weather was beautiful and we wanted to eat outside, so it was pretty frustrating. The food was super tasty and there's a large beer selection. It did take awhile after we were finished with our meal to flag the waitress for the check, but we didn't mind waiting. If we had been in a rush though, it would have been annoying, especially after not being seated correctly. I'm guessing we will probably be back, but if it's crowded, we're likely to pick somewhere else since they can't seem to handle large volume of patrons.

Very attentive and personable server. The garlic parm wings were good and are half price on Tuesday evenings after 4 PM. Fries were stale but server cheerfully replaced them with a piping hot batch. Ordered the burger special which was very tasty but had ordered it medium and it arrived well done.

We went on a Friday evening for dinner to celebrate last day of school. What a mistake choosing this place.
The hostess didn't welcome us and when we were talking to her she turned her back and didn't listen what we said to her at all. Extremely rude.
We sat at our table and waited 20 minutes, nobody came to our table so I decided to call a waitress that was attending another table. I asked her to send us our waitress. She proceeded to talk to the waitresses that were by the kitchen, they were all arguing and proceeded to talk to the hostess. It looked like the hostess never assigned our table to any of the waitresses.
After 25 minutes a waitress came to our table, we ordered our drinks and appetizer.
After 35 minutes, we got our drinks. We had to wait another 10 minutes for our Cheesesteak nachos. The nachos didn't have any cheese sauce, we had to call the waitress and order a side of the cheese sauce.
We got our wings and after that we never saw our waitress. She didn't come back to our table to check if everything was ok or if we needed refills. And yes, we needed refills. I waved at the waitress, she came to our table, and gave us the check. She saw an empty cup of tea, never asked if the rest of us needed a refill. Then, she came back with one refill. Seriously? I had to ask her for soda refills for the rest of us.
What kind of service is this?????
Please note that the restaurant was crowded, however, there were empty tables so it was no excuse for the waitresses and the hostess behaviors!
The band was playing that night, it was extremely loud, we couldn't hear at all during our conversation.
We have been at the other PJ Whelihan's locations and we have never experienced these type of issues.
Hopefully management reads this comment and addresses the issues.
We'll definitely never be back at that location.
