PJ Ryan’s opened its doors in early July, 2008 and has greeted guests with the same genuine family atmosphere that their other locations are known for (West Chester — Philly). Friendly, attentive staff members are the norm at any of the Ryan’s establishments and so is great food. Just like the pub in West Chester, the menu at PJ Ryans is full of delicious choices including their famous buffalo wings, enormous sandwiches, healthy salads and of course real meat and potato dishes like pan seared crab cakes and mouth watering Prime Rib. Guests enjoy their food in one of three lively main rooms that make up PJ Ryan’s. The entire restaurant is smoke free with beautiful hardwood floors, tin ceilings and walls adorned with family mementoes and images of Phoenixville’s past. There are two large bars with stately leather booths, hightop tables and family style bench seating. No matter where you sit you are sure to have a view of at least one of the 9 flat screen TV’s.

What a great place to stop for a meal or sandwiches before a show at the (next door) Colonial Theater! Everything is superb in this restaurant. The only downside in Phoenixville is finding a parking space. Like the comedian said at the show next door... "Parking was so bad he drove to Pottstown to park, and took an Uber back to Phoenixville."

Both my wife and I enjoyed dinner before the show at the Colonial Theater. We had reserved a table which was ready when we arrived. We appreciated the number of menu selections. Appetizers and entrees arrived quickly and portions were generous.

A great Irish pub along the main drag. Not too dark. A smaller beer menu, but not limited by any stretch. Some interesting takes on appetizers (corned beef spring rolls, cooked bruschetta) and solid entrees, mainly Irish pub staples. Only major issue is the parking situation in that area, and that's not even a restaurant problem. All-around excellent service and I would recommend.

Nice pub for a casual evening out. A number of tables were occupied, but the pub was not packed on a Friday evening. The table in the bar area was perfect and our wait person was very attentive. We will return.

Had a great meal, with fantastic service. The location of our table was not the best. We were sat far from the rest of the guests, but the area filled in as the night went on. We enjoy having dinner at PJ Ryan's before hitting up the rest of Phoenixville, and we are looking forward to our next visit soon.

We stopped here for dinner prior to going to the theater in Phoenixville. We had an early reservation. Happy hour drink prices. Nice view from the porch. Mussels were great! Reasonable prices. I would definitely go back.

The food in my opinion.was not as good as the last time we dined here. That was two months ago. The service was sporadic at best. Several times we had empty glasses and we were right across from the bar.

Tough lunch. Probably will not be back. Dirty plate for apps, fish fry soggy and not to temp, then overcharged on bill. Server was nice and it looked like a really fun night spot, but as they say...three strikes and your out. Wanted this to be a great lunch but it was really disappointing.

First time visit, but upon walking in found it to be filled with smokers around the bar. So unusual today. The side room was a little better, until one of the wait staff went out the side door to catch a smoke and let in a stream of the smoke. The mussels in red sauce were good, but the beef tips were tough and stringy. I would probably not return as there are plenty of places in Phoenixville that have better food and no smoke.

It was fathers day and the restaurant was not ready for the crowds. Service was very lacking, the brunch buffet ran out of food on several occasion and we had lengthy waits till the kitchen was able to resupply it. Also, the waitresses were overwhelmed and did not bring coffee and drinks ordered on a timely basis and forgot requests on several occasions. It was an unfortunate experience for a place that otherwise is pretty good for brunch and where normally the service is good and the food plenty.

Food was fine: it was a buffet. Very poor service otherwise: couldn't get water or silverware for nearly 30 minutes after being sat, despite asking multiple times.

We wanted to eat before the early show at the Colonial theatre, and P.J. Ryan's is next door. We hadn't been there before and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the service efficient, plus it's a nice space decorated with historical photos of Phoenixville. At that hour they weren't very busy yet and it was quiet. My companion had a burger and I had the chicken quesadilla, both very good. We will be back for other pre-movie dinners!

PJ Ryan's was great! Drinks, food, bartenders, servers, host staff all very good. All in our party was pleased, happy and well fed. Too bad it's in the Borough of Phoenixville which isn't as accommodating or cordial. Don't want to spoil this review of PJ Ryan's though cause it's a hit and you should try it!

My wife and I traveled 45 min to find a new place to eat. PJ's was worth the trip. Service was great, food was very good for the price and the atmosphere lived up to expectations. We will be back again soon. (Also, download the Phoenixville parking app for fast in and out of the resturant.)
