A New Jersey-based pub and restaurant chain plans to open a new Lancaster location of P.J. Whelihan's in late spring.

The Lancaster location will be the 17th P.J. Whelihan's restaurant - and 22nd restaurant overall - for its parent company, P.J.W. Restaurant Group, based in Westmont, New Jersey. The group's other restaurants include Treno Pizza Bar, The ChopHouse and The Pour House, which has three locations. 

"We've been looking to come to Lancaster for a long time now, and the Shoppes at Belmont opening this year created the perfect opportunity," said Bob Platzer, president and CEO of P.J.W. Restaurant Group.

P.J.W. Restaurant Group will own its 6,000-square-foot space at the Shoppes at Belmont, said spokesperson Mackenzie Maloney of PR firm Food Shelter PR. Construction is currently underway and on track for a late spring opening, Maloney said.

The Lancaster spot will mark the company's most westward location and will create 80 full- and part-time jobs.

P.J. Whelihan's will be among a number of other eateries at the Shoppes at Belmont, including Zoës KitchenCoreLife Eatery and Chick-fil-A. The expansive shopping center also includes major retail anchors like Target, Whole Foods, Dick's Sporting Goods and Nordstrom Rack, some of which have already opened.

The menu at P.J. Whelihan's will include classic pub offerings like wings, fries, tater tots, burgers and more, according to a press release.

Beers on tap will include a lager made by Chester County-based Victory Brewing Company exclusively for P.J. Whelihan's, called the P.J.W. Copper Lager. 

P.J. Whelihan's space will feature wood accents coupled with an industrial look of exposed ductwork. The new restaurant will also boast plenty of screens, including a 100-square-foot video wall in the bar area. The video wall could be used in its entirety or sectioned off into smaller screens to display individual shows or movies.
