PJ O'Reilly's is your local pub located in the heart of Canberra city just off Northbourne Ave.
Boasting a fantastic menu of classic Aussie favourites, daily specials, a range of tap beers and live entertainment, there is little wonder why PJ's has been a popular gathering venue for over 20 years.
Went to PJs for dinner and drinks on a Saturday night. I was able to get a last minute reservation, and it was a quiet night there. They had live music which was great and the food was A-MAZING! Will definitely go back again in the future.
Arrived for my sons 18th, having booked on line, to find the place closed. Luckily we managed to sort something else out.
We were a party of eight for lunch on 23 December. The food was good, but venue was terribly, terribly understaffed. It was impossible to get any assistance (we even gave up waiting and seated ourselves), and it took a very long time to order (drinks and/or food) at the bar. I do understand it's hard to plan staffing, and that someone had apparently called in sick that day. Just be aware of the need to allow plenty of extra time for staffing shortages if you're planning a workday lunch.
Great wedges, decent burger and good range of beers.
Very happy with the service and the food - I am a repeat customer.
Fast service over a lunch break and staff were very helpful. We had 11 people for a birthday. There was no cakeage (fee some restaurants charge for BYO cake). I will be organising more Birthday celebrations here.
Friendly, happy staff, good value and central location.
Average food. The venue was too loud. Would only go back for drinks only - although for a pub they didn’t have many beers on tap.
I booked a high bench and didn’t get one then my mate ordered a bowl of chips and chicken wings and after 45 minutes of waiting we asked where they were and we were told that they were only just starting them then!
Great place for a drink with friends. Went for my birthday with 6 friends on a Saturday, they aloud us to stay on the table all night and was a great atmosphere while being cautious of the covid restrictions. Live music was great and the staff very friendly!
Expensive highly salted food with little variety. Overall would not recommend to family or friends.
Food was good. Service was good. Kinda loud but to be expected in a pub. Dissappointed to not be able to buy a Pint of Guinness... transitioning away from an Irish Pub apparently and no longer serve the nectar of the Gods :(
Bartender making cocktails was terrific and the cocktails were very good. Just had snacks, sweet potatoe fries and pakoras were good.
Great atmosphere. Light meal of Arancini Balls and Anitpasto Platter, just perfect.
Will definitely visit again.
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
Friendly staff, enjoyable pub meals and good atmosphere.
Great venue, location and friendly staff however blasting music from 6:30pm when you are trying to have a chat with colleagues or friends after a weeks work isn’t ideal. Suggest that it might be worthwhile asking patrons if the noise is okay and have areas that are quieter. Appreciate this can change as it gets later into the night. Cheers.
Our food was delicious but it took over 5 minutes for the 8 people at our table to get their meals. Is not polite to start eating until everyone has their meal, but what can you do when you have ordered hot food?
Great food, good atmosphere for a big group of friends
Pjs is a good place for a few laid back drinks.
I always request rustic chips and get french fries :(
Also the music is too loud.
Amazing atmosphere and great drinks
Great to be out seeing friends over some drinks and some great food.
Fantastic service staff food and atmosphere would definitely go again
The staff were incredibly welcoming, the atmosphere was amazing and the food was great too
Great place to hang out with family and friends. would be great if they had happy hour deals
Fabulous food, very friendly staff and a great atmosphere!
We will definitely be back.
Excellent friendly service. Great atmosphere and great food.
Food not many lower priced things to pick from
Excellent service and food, could do with a few more varieties of beer on tap
Great service. Food was lovely.
An overall good venue for a couple to dine for dinner
Made a booking but no one checked anything at the door (just a sign-in book) or the bar, big groups in the back room, pretty much out of control crowds really. Yet two weeks ago it was all strict and regulated. What happened?
While most was good, my meal didn't come as ordered and the music it always a bit too loud.
A great little pub! We were away on holidays and they were very helpful. Service was awesome, food was great and the mood was just right.
To loud to have a conversation inside, outside is nice but not especially vibey. Solid pub overall, could do with a better selection of lager
It seems the restaurant didn’t get our reservation as a table was not available although I received confirmation. We were put into a make shift table setting in a corner where two round tables were pushed together for the three of us. We didn’t feel comfortable eating in that area so we left and went to another restaurant.
The overall vibe was nice and service was quick despite it being busy. However, the lasagna came out cold in the middle. Also on of our plates had someone else’s food stuck to the bottom of it. Also our table reservation was for 2 hours (6:30-8:30pm) and at 8pm they ask us to leave as they had pre booked the table for people at 8 which is not what the booking outlines.
Loved the food fast service and delicious great atmosphere
Everything was great, however the house music was so loud that I struggled to hear the two other guests I was with. We were yelling at each other from across our table.
Cant go wrong. Seriously the best laid back pub with awesome food and even better staff. You wont be disappointed
