P.J.'s started off awesome. Other than Victory, there wasn't anything like this restaurant in the area. It went downhill quickly. Food is terrible. The only saving grace is their tap list. This place lost its luster once other craft beer bars started rolling into the area.

Good selection of beer and has some good entrees but still typical "bar food". The owners are very supportive of local fundraisers. For a step up for food, try the sister restaurant Poor House in Exton.

Great place to get a good craft beer and good pub fare. Menus are very reasonably price and service staff is attractive and on point. Craft beer list is about 24 not much to offer craft bottle wise but there is Dales Pale Ale in cans, good place overall. They have a lot of good beers on tap, 60 Minute, Allagash White, Youngster Double Chocolate, Brew Works Rude Elf, Arcadia Hop Mouth, Fling Fish Exit 16 just to name a few. If you're into sports they have over 40 TV's with a big projection screen and a couple 80" TVs outside on the heated patio.
