PJ's restaurant is in my opinion the best place on campus to get lunch on a Friday. It has outstanding food, cheap prices, and weekly variety.

From beginning to end the experience at this restaurant was very positive and well planned. The food was quite good and the price very fair.

The young servers were all very good. Perhaps a little more attention might be needed on how to actually serve the food in a tight spot and properly -not passing food over client's heads. Just trying to be constructive as it may in the long run prevent accidents from occurring (just as there is a right way to place a table setting -thre is a right way to serve the actual plate).

I was impressed and pleased.

I've been a couple times but Tuesdays experience was my best so far. Our waitress was amazing and made it that much better. Not to mention, who doesn't love half priced items? Killing it as always, thanks guys!

Excellent experience at PJ's. The theme for the day was very creative and the dishes perfectly matched the theme. All the staff did a great job from the initial greeting from the hostesses, to the servers and of course the kitchen crew. A great team effort. The plating of the food was visually appealing and the food was delicious! Excellent food for a very reasonable price. Would definitely return!

The front door greeters were professional and friendly. Our server was professional and made sure we were taken care of throughout our luncheon. The Chef appeared unprofessional dressed, without a smile, and unprofessionally interrupted my congratulation conversation and questions with a student about the luncheon process as a learning environment. Student expectations would be to present themselves professionally. The teacher, Chef, needs to demonstrate professionalism.

I went as a double date and we all felt that the environment was high stress. I have never seen the happiest and talkative individuals so quiet and so thrown off before. It felt like we were gonna be kidnapped and cooked.

PS the fish taco has a swimming pool worth of water in it.

My husband and I wanted to support Jane Flapper who was the student in charge last Thursday.
We have eaten many meals at the university over the past 63 years since Dan first became a student.

We quite enjoyed the lunch. It was tasty and attractive. The staff were pleasant and efficient.

We live about 1 1/2 hours away so are unlikely to visit often.

We did fill out the form after the meal. Our table of 4 was really pleased with the whole nine yards!
Our opinion has not changed after our meal on Thursday November 22 2018.
Yes, our daughter Jane was involved as the kitchen manager, so that made us come.
It was very special and it made a very good memory.
As a matter of fact, today I met some people from our home town of Markdale and they had already heard from fellow Markdale church members about the good luncheon others had had on Thursday at PJ!
It was also much appreciated that the prof-coordinator came to us to introduce herself.
We are food producers so from Fork to Table, PJ did a good finishing job!
Thank you PJ.

Very well organized by students! Food choices were a kick up from roadhouse fare. Very creative and beautifully presented. Staff were friendly and helpful. Prices are excellent.
We will certainly come again. (Although parking is a pain!)

There was a great variety of food choices, and something for those of us who are either Gluten Intolerant, Dairy Intolerant, and/or Vegetarian!
Great value for what you pay! Too bad it is not in the center of campus though, as I feel they would draw in more students if it were.

Hostesses were very friendly and approachable when we entered. Serving staff was very attentive to our needs. Food was all served at the right temperature and very tasty. Desert recommended looked odd but turned out to be a gem. Very yummy! Enjoyed our meal, desert and watermelon drink very much!

The chicken was amazing with the roasted potatoes and Greek salad!! The tatziki sauce was the best I’ve ever had!! We also had the sewer which was Greek yogurt with a fresh strawberry sauce. It was amazing!! Will be going back!!

I really enjoyed the food and you could tell it was made by skilled chefs with beautiful presentation. The service was very quick and assisted to all my needs such as splitting up the bills in a certain way. I liked the ambiance of the restaurant too with the flower centerpieces and colouring on the table to keep the environment casual. The only criticism I would say is that almost every food has cilantro in it which is a controversial topping for many people. Personally, I am not a fan and it was in the fish tacos, mussels, on the fries, as well as in a veggie taco bowl I had last week too. Other than my subjective criticism, all the people involved with the restaurant did awesome and I would definitely come back

I attended the "california dreaming" lunch this week and loved the experience. The tables looked great and fit the theme, the soup and sweet potatoe fries were particularly good and all the food was wonderful and came quickly. we had a nice location beside a large bright window. Well done.

Delightful staff, pleasant venue, good food, good prices. BUT . . . lukewarm coffee and tea, which arrived first and were long gone by the time the food arrived . . . no additional beverage offered. Mussels were divine but needed a slice of crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauce . . . None of that will stop us from returning whenever we can.

The restaurant was amazing! The service was friendly. It was my first time at PJ's and I would definitely come here again with my coworkers. The special menu for Valentines day was delicious! I HAD to order 2 entrees -- the chicken parmesan and the stuffed peppers -- as it was too hard to choose between.
