Best Seafood Port Jeff

Here’s a list of some of the best non-fish seafood you can find in many restaurants (and some extra special preparations from PJ Lobster House).


Any seafood lover has to have a soft spot in their heart for crab, whether crab legs or crab claws, but PJ’s spinach and artichoke dip with ¼ pound of jumbo crab meat will keep any die-hard seafood fan coming back for more.


We love clams at PJ Lobster House! From Clams Oreganata with oregano crumb topping to our broiled Clams Casino with bacon, red peppers, and butter, we know how to serve clams any way you love them. And don’t forget to order our Traditional Clambake or our famous Manhattan or New England Clam Chowder!


Most seafood fans love fried calamari, but did you know that squid can be delicious served other ways? PJ’s Seafood Salad features fresh calamari, scallops, and shrimp tossed with red peppers, red onion, lemon juice, olives, and olive oil.


Maybe you’ve had octopus sushi-style, but PJ’s Spanish octopus legs with red onion, red peppers, lemon juice, and olive oil will really throw a party in your mouth!


With a name like PJ Lobster House, lobster has to be good! We specialize in unique ways to enjoy this delicacy, like our lobster ravioli with sauteed spinach, but we’re known for our lobster rolls, both in a slider form and on a perfectly toasted hot dog bun.


Mussels have a signature texture that brings true seafood lovers coming back time and time again and at PJ Lobster House, we highlight this with our Bucket of Mussels with your choice of fra Diavolo, white wine and garlic or marinara sauce.


One of our favorite ways to serve oysters is raw, on the half shell with lemon, cocktail sauce and horseradish. However, oysters are also delicious served steamed, grilled, smoked, baked, fried, poached or in a po’boy. Different varieties all have their own flavor, so explore your options!
