PJ Ryan's Pub

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.

"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.)"

"The service and the wait staff were wonderful!!! There was a variety of choices and specials. All of the food came out hot! I guess I was looking for a restaurant that wasn't such a bar atmosphere. I wanted more of a restaurant feel."

"Our server and everyone else were great. They could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Very comfortable place. Food was typical Irish pub fare, with a few additions to the menu. Draft beer list, despite the number of offerings, was very limited to my taste. Very affordable for beer drinkers."
