    PJ's is an awesome spot away from the tourist crowds of downtown Truckee. View of the mountains and the 18th fairway of Grays Crossing golf course. A large lawn area is great for kids to run around. We've been here 4 times and it never disappoints. Everything is yummy and the fish tacos and hot pastrami are especially amazing.

    Very good eclectic menu. Drove past the first time as there was no signage. Really just a golf 19th hole but this was one time it was good to be above par.

    We had a lovely lunch with beautiful scenery. I had batter cod tacos and my friend had a turkey melt. Both were served by a very gracious young lady and was delicious. We drove up from Grass Valley and first time at PJ,s and was not disappointed. We will be back.

    PJ's is consistently great when it opens for the season until about July 4th. This is golf club not a wedding my venue yet the weddings dominate. If you go to PJ's after a Weddings expect leftover food . We had lunch on a Sunday. French dip was dry and ok. The taco salad was wilted avocado Brown. Lots of staff turnover. This is a small restaurant with a small kitchen it can't produce banquet food and service diners.

    Great food. Loved the peach salad with salmon. Steak also tasted great, but small portion. Service was a little slow. Beautiful views. Nice to sit outside.

    The host was absolutely awful to us, she was rude and nasty and extremely unpleasant - argumentative and accused us of not making the reservations correctly - when right there on her computer screen you could see our reservations. Afterwards, our server, Kate, was rude and short with us and treated us horribly. We have been long time customers at PJ's but these last two experiences have left such bad tastes in our mouth we're not sure we will be back. We hope the managers/owners at PJ's will take this review to heart and take a closer look at the type of customer service their current staff is providing.

    Love eating at PJ's, but the hostess made us feel unwelcome. She acted like we were inconveniencing her. She was very frustrated. When I go to a restaurant, I don't want to feel like I'm not welcomed. I want to get a warm response like, Yes, we will do everything to help you get situated and not PutOut! We asked to put some tables together & she said No they were too busy. There was very little business there & many empty tables. We were family from a wedding from many different states. I own my own restaurant & would definitely fire this hostess. You would think PJ's would want as much business as possible especially being Seasonal. I have to say the food is Great, otherwise we would go elsewhere. I really can't tolerate grouchy people!

    I have always loved this place as the food has always been delicious, never packed like downtown Truckee and very reasonable prices. All around hit. Went for dinner, there were four of us. Bill without tip was $120.00 No drinks, just 4 dinners and 1 appetizer. Two of us had tri tip French dips, $17. Tri tip tasted more like deli roast but with absolutely NO flavor. The au jus was also flavorless. I kept salting and peppering things but I couldn't fix it. One daughter had the Halibut, good but very simple. My other daughter had filet. Rather small, I'd say 6oz. for $38, enough for my 15 year old daughter but probably not a hungry adult.. The filet itself was actually quite good but last season a filet was only about $24 if I remember right. The description of the filet was much more impressive than the actual dish that was served. Polenta very dry, thought it would have the sauce described to go with it but the sauce was just a very small serving on the steak. So the polenta sticks were just meant to eat plain. Overall, it just wasn't $140 meal for two entrees and a couple of sandwiches. Maybe if EVERYTHING was delicious. May give it one more try, because I liked it so much in the past.

    I love the view and outdoor seating, great bar and appetizers. Wine list is awesome. Friendly service with the right amount of attention. The dinner entrees are awesome. The chicken with naan was seasoned and cooked beautifully. My husband ordered the filet, It was steakhouse quality. The dinner menu offers a variety and just the right amount. Pj's is not trying to do too much and be everything for everybody. I Am looking forward to trying more entrees.

    Always a great spot for a salad or a sandwich. Try the taco salad with shrimp. I was pleasantly surprised to try their dinner menu! The filet was cooked to perfection a wonder flavor, the vegetables and polenta out of this world. A wonderful wine list great fit for the novice or wine connoisseur. As always the service was outstanding.

    I didn't know about this place until just recently. The food was absolutely outstanding. The view was lovely too. When it warms up, their patio dining will be wonderful. In one trip, this became a favorite Truckee restaurant. Definitely give it a shot.

    This is a very small restaurant that was originally a private club for golfers and members of the surrounding development. It has for the past few years been open to the public and my understanding is it is operational from May thru October. It is situated at the edge of the golf course with lovely views, the dining room is quite attractive with tall exposed beam ceilings supported by a large steel frame. The service was a bit slow, the menu is probably more suited for lunch than for dinner as the dinner selections were quite limited. The food was good but not outstanding.

    Having an enjoyable dinner here can be dicey. The staff is young and seems very inexperienced when it comes to servicing diners. It took a very long time to get someone to take our drink order and longer still to bring the drink. The bussers can't seem to do anything but pick up plates. The one busier was no help at all for the server who was very busy. She did her best with incompetent work mates. I dropped my fork and it took a very long time before anyone brought one after they were alerted. We had to send back the filet because it was over cooked. It was delicious when they corrected the mistake but the vegetables were so salty it was hard to eat them. The manager needs to teach them how to serve properly.

    We had a wonderful dinner on the outdoor patio. It was a little cold after the sun went down and it would have been great to have had a heater at our table. We asked about getting one, but no one came back to tell us yes or no, so we just moved to sit by the fire place. Other than that, our waitress Chelsei was very nice and everyone was efficient and nice. The food was great. The view was amazing.
