"What a fantastic place. Not a negative thing to say. Great building. Fantastic view. The service was top notch from every member of the staff. Extra kudos to Britney who did a fantastic job. The food was some of the best Ive had in years. The shrimp whiskey soup is a must try. Thank you so much for such a great dinning experience. As someone who is used to eating in the suburbs of Chicago, this restaurant absolutely blew me away."

"We spent three nights at PJ's and fished for trout on the white river. The food at pjs is excellent great lobster,steak,fish, chicken and shrimp. Vegetarian and gluten free options. We caught and released 30 fish a lot of good size browns. The lodge rooms are very comfortable and the staff is wonderful!! We have fished all over the world and not much better than pjs."

“Friendly and Accommodationg” 5 of 5 stars
 Reviewed October 2017 on TripAdvisor

"Our first experience this past weekend. My wife and i motor boated up from our cabin at Mt Olive to Norfork. The guy at the boat dock told us about PJ's and we decided to go there for dinner. We called and told them we were coming in by boat and had our dogs,they said "no problem". The place is beautiful and right on the river. The staff and the owner we very friendly and accommodating. Everything about the meal and the pre dinner cocktails was a five star experience. I have been to so called five star establishments and prime steak houses that couldn't touch this place. We had a real WOW experience and we will be back with friends and family."

“You have to try it!” 5 of 5 stars
 Reviewed July 2017 on Facebook

"PJs is awesome! Fiancée and myself took a quick weekend getaway and was recommended to PJs. First, the secenery is awesome, right on the river. She was ecstatic about the whole back drop and how it was the perfect setting. Our waiter knew his stuff and made our meal even better. We had the smoked trout appetizer which was better than excellent! The perfect blend of trout and smoke with a cream cheese based spread. You have to try it! She had the red snapper with shrimp creole topping and it was beautiful! We have spent a good amount of time on the gulf coast and love red snapper. What she was brought out rivaled the high end restaurants we have ate at on the coast. I had the crab stuffed salmon and believe me, I was stuffed! Every bite was great! The plate settings were very well laid out and the steamed vegetables and rice were perfect. We finished off with a raspberry lemon cheesecake tart which took it over the top. With our meal she had the house Chardonnay and I went between a watermelon martini and a lemon mojito. I am a big mojito fan, make them at home all the time. I was overly impressed with this drink and hope to recreate it at home. Treat yourself and go to this restaurant, it is worth so much more than you will pay. Everything together made a very enjoyable experience and a memory will will both share. We will definitely be back soon and enjoy this restaurant again!"
