Everything was tasty and the real deal. Nothing canned or from a mix. Chicken salad was good. No frills. The chicken fried steak was served over real mashed potatoes and gravy. Salad very fresh. They had live music on a Saturday night. The ambience had a local charm right on the square. Service friendly.

PJ's is one of the oldest restaurants that have anchored the Mcdonough square. Feautring a southern-American menu, the food is always very good, with a variety of sandwiches, entrees and soups.

Personal highlights are the tilapia wraps, meatloaf, sweet potato fries and cheese steak.

Decor is a mural of Mcdonough, with a mix of booth and table searing. There is also a small bar and music most Friday nights.

The only ding against PJs is that service is often slow, but friendly. This is not the place to run into if you're in a hurry.

I enjoyed a westen omelet with grits and a biscuit and my wife enjoyed the buttermilk pancakes with bacon. The unsweetened ice tea was refreshing.

We had a large party of friends but Amanda took great care of us!

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Food is quite good. I had the grilled salmon salad and it was delicious. The salmon was grilled exactly as requested. My husband had the steak sandwich which he said was excellent and juicy. Service was friendly and unrushed if not a bit slow.

The décor is pretty old and worn out looking and sometimes you just stand there at the welcome podium inside the door waiting for someone to come greet you. They seem short-staffed most of the time. Given that, however, the food is good. It takes quite awhile to get it but I've usually been happy with it. The Chicken Salad is good once I add a little more Mayo and some pickle to it. The homemade soups are usually really good. They also do home made potato chips that I could eat by the plateful. The price is rather high so we don't go there as often anymore. If you go during peak times, you may have trouble parking because for the most part, it's street parking in the Square and on side streets; and you will probably have to wait for a table. I get the impression that the owner/chef is really good on the food side of things and not so much on the management of the dining room and staff. That is just an impression based on the service and atmosphere vs. the food quality.
