PJ's is a local chain of restaurant/bars. I think this is the best of them. Each bar chooses its own selection of beers. The Haddonfield bar stocks more local microbrews than any of the others. The food is similar in all the bars. Haddonfield often has a Yard's, a Flying Fish, usually a Victory, and often a Troegs on tap. The beer is all fresh and good. The service is usually exceptionally friendly. The menu is a little above the normal bar food, including some really good seafood. I especially like the raw bar selections. This is a fun place that gets crowded. My only gripe is that I need more selection of beers. Ignoring the Pale Lagers, there are only three or four good beers on tap.

I have been to PJ Whelihans'" in Haddon township. Not sure why it says Haddonfield, Because Haddonfield is a dry town.

A- Atmosphere can be a hit or miss

Q- Quality could be better

S- Service at the bar could be better if the bartender was not tending to the back bar

S- the Draft Selection is very good Draft selection is changed often

F- Food is very good Love the burgers. The wings are good. They have haft price wings on Tuesdays. But it is packed with teenagers Better to go after 8 pm if you don't want to be brother with kids

V-Value is very reasonable

The better of the two PJWs I've been too. Relatively close to my new house so I stop by every so often to catch a game or for a late night meal.

The atmosphere is okay with two dining areas and a small outdoor patio section. The front/main room has a long bar and ample seating while the back room is smaller yet more comfortable with some high tops and booths. Flat screens everywhere with a decent view from any seat.

The service leaves a bit to be desired. The servers are pleasant and speedy but have little to no knowledge of beer. Surprisingly the bartenders seems to know even less.

The food is good with above average pub grub. The wings are excellent and thy offer some other good apps and sandwiches.

The selection is pretty awful with a tap or two of local micros, with most of the lines and bottles dedicated to BMC/macro options. Victory makes a copper lager for them which is pretty sessionable but you have to wait 20 minutes to drink it because everything is served at the lowest possible temperature.

Overall an okay place but there are many better option on the same street.

Not a bad place for a neighborhood sports bar. Haddonfield is an upscale neighborhood, so this place is a bit classier in appearance, that is, it's not a dive bar or anything. That said, you can still get an annoying crowd now and then...but then again, it's the Philly area, and all Philly sports fans are terrible. But anyway. They have two decent sized bars, as well as tables and booths. The beer selection is decent. Aside from the typical macros, they keep a fair amount of micros/locals on tap. The staff is friendly, but you won't really learn anything about beer here. Food is good, typical pub fare.

If you're in this area, you might as well go to Cork or the Pour House in Westmont, both of which are not that far away.

A - cozy atmosphere, with alot oh hd tv's. not a bad place to go and have a few on monday nights.

Q - they always seem to have a decent microbrew on hand, especially on microbrew mondays.

S - at the bar is always good, but at the back room has been some delays getting beer.

S - the local brewers are always serving up something decent. and once in awhile they get something interesting from out west.

F - the fries are ok. the bergers are ok. i enen had the chili, and it was ok.

V - you get what you pay for, but on mondays, $3.50 pints is a good deal.

this is a place i frequent about 2 times a month. its a standard sports bar with pretty good food and reasonable prices. they always keep a few good taps on hand, usually at the back bar. the bartenders don't really know anything about the beer they are serving, most times they can't even tell you what micros they have. i've run into one situation where the male bartender got an attitude with me and said something rude, in regards to me not being quick with what beer i wanted after he failed to pour a beer from their hand pump correctly. aside from that one situation its a really good neighborhood bar. just make sure you dont ask someone to pour you something from their cask.
