It's on Center Street between West Roxbury and Roslindale, across from Yucatan Tacos. It looks kinda scary from the outside but if I went by looks alone I never would have found some true gems out there. Anybody ever been for the food not the beer?

    99% sure there's no food. I've played pool in there before, not scary.

      I've been to PJK's a number of times (my home is a two minute walk) and I find it to be a good place to get a beer and watch a ballgame. The kitchen is open on a very limited basis - maybe Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have only seen one or two people eating the food. Menu is pretty limited.

      My thought, you're not missing much in the food dept. Not a bad place for a cheap beer.

        Did this place close?

          Yes, I was surprised to see that assuming it was a standby local hang.

            There's some construction going on in the place. Any ideas what's moving in?

              Kelleher's is reopening within the next week under new owners but long time patrons. They are bringing back the restaurant with some BBQ added. A welcome addition back to the area. A family friendly place.

            Wow, I never thought I'd see Kelleher's on Chowhound!

            Definitely a welcome addition back to the area. In its former life, Kelleher's was a great local watering hole in a part of Roslindale without many other options. Or at least options were one can sit and have a few beers while watching the game or shooting some pool. I have heard that the person formerly in charge of the kitchen at the Corrib in West Roxbury will be establishing a similiar menu at the new Kellehers.
