We went with our kids. Menu has a good variety. Food is good enough. Service was excellent. Watched the hockey on TV after we ate.

Great varied menu. Too noisy for a conversation for be but a fun excellently priced place right downtown. I would imagine the outdoor dining would be much better noisewise.excellent server!

Loved it! Not a huge portion of food on the plate, but it was extremely tasty. Loved the ambiance. Waiter was fantastic. We chose to go with the unending bloody mary's/mimosas. Very nice, we will be back!

I want to go back!
We had a really tasty good lunch at PJ Clarke's. I'm looking forward to going back and trying something else on the menu - everything looked delicious. Great server too - she was warm and hospitable and did not make us feel rushed in any way. Thanks!

Great Mother's Day Brunch!
The Great brunch started with the restaurant accommodating us wanting to move inside from their great patio when the winds picked up. They easily transitioned us inside without missing a step. The menu had great options for mom, while also had things dad could eat (he's a bit particular and not very adventurous). Starting with the shrimp cocktail and chopped salad for me and mom was excellent. Dad even got into the mix for appetizers (normally he doesn't find things he'd like) and had the braised short rib spring rolls which were great. We some how managed to save room for entrees. The highlight was the fried chicken and sweet potato waffles Amazing! Definitely will be back to see the excellent chef and team there again.

P. J. Clarke's was the perfect embodiment of your expectations for a small, neighborhood steakhouse. Great food and drinks, great environment, and only blocks from the White House. Perfect for entertaining out of town guests or hosting a business lunch, and don't miss the late night bar menu.

Great place to go after work
I just had dinner there with an old friend the other night and the chicken paillard was wonderful. The service was very good and they were nice about letting us linger as my friend and I had a lot of catching up to do.

I had a GiltCity voucher for brunch here, so we trekked into the city for some bottomless mimosas and bloody marys. We each got classic bloody marys to start, which were tasty. We shared the chesapeake benedict and french toast, which were both delicious. I probably would go for the maryland benedict next time since I didn't think the asparagus really added anything. We got cheese grits and sausages on the side. The cheese grits were phenomenal! The best I've ever had. I finished brunch off with a passionfruit mimosa, which was really refreshing. Overall - great brunch! P.J. Clarke's also introduced me to Sir Kensington's scooping ketchup, which I've already placed my Amazon order for.

I always get the same thing-chopped
I always get the same thing-chopped market salad. I recommend it. The wine list is also solid. Friendly and attentive wait staff-with no hovering. Good energy and noise level. The hosts are always welcoming. Cheers!

This was our second trip to PJ Clarkes. We had been there last year and enjoyed it. We had the same meals we had the last time because we had enjoyed them so much. This time the quality of the food was noticeably different as in not as good. Maybe they have hired a new chef since the last time. I ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were soggy/watery and the entire dish was just ok. My hubby got the sliders and had to send them back twice. I will say that the customer service is wonderful. The waitress and manager did everything to get my husband's dish right and even offered to take the meal off the tab. We were in the sidecar downsstairs and pretty much had the place to ourselves..it was nice.

PJ's is definitely on short
PJ's is definitely on short list of restaurants to revisit. Brunch was scrumptious.
The Blood Mary could have been a little better but that's a very minor complaint given the overall experience was lovely.

Try the Crab Cakes!
In Washington DC across from the St. Regis Hotel and 2 blks from the White House. Very busy - nice vibe. The crab cakes were in season and were delicious!

A Solid Tradition
The food was great. The atmosphere was energetic. A little loud at times, because the joint was jumping. Staff was very attentive.

Energetic Restaurant, Great Food
Inside, the decor is classy . Very pleasant. I had the Grilled Free Range Chicken Salad, which came out quickly and did not disappoint. The chicken was seasoned gently and had great flavor, the greens the freshest and crunchy. The croutons stayed ultra crunchy (and not burnt) all the way to the end. Cheese looked and tasted freshly shredded. My personal preference is for a little less anchovy flavor in the dressing, but many people would say that the dressing was absolutely perfect; a Caesar after all. Beware the noise level--if you're looking for quiet, this is not the place. I suppose the level of noise provides some privacy where the tables are close together. I highly recommend, and will eat there again myself.

I really like this place: great cocktails, very reasonably priced, solidly good food, and a casual atmosphere. You really can't ask for more than that. I can't wait to try Sidecar, too!

A lovely lunch
Went here for lunch and sat outside, which is why I can say the noise level was quiet. We both had salads and they were delicious. The server was new, and told us that, but very attentive and did a great job. Sitting outside, even in the hot weather we've been having, was just fine because there was a breeze and the umbrellas gave us shade. It was a truly lovely experience. I'm a fan.

great food great service
I had an early lunch meeting (11:30) and I needed somewhere where we wouldn't be bothered too much and quiet enough to discuss issues. The food was great, the service was friendly and the manager did an amazing job answering some of my questions about membership.

It was a terrific experience. Granted it was a beautiful day and we sat outside but everything was really enjoyable and the menu was excellent -- as was the food when it came. Have already planned my next visit there.

PJ Clarke's - Surprise
For the 25+ years I have lived in DC and the DC area, I never dined at PJ Clarke's until 14 September when I took two out of town guests to the restaurant. I chose the establishment due to its proximity to their hotel than any known reputation to me.
My guests and I were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent service, the quality food, and the unique atmosphere. I happily recommend PJ Clarke's.

Restaurant is right next to the 16th/K intersection and if you're on the outside patio you get some traffic noise and the occasional blaring horn. Staff are attentive, food is decent.

Good if typical lunch options
Had lunch with two colleagues. The menu is fairly large but with limited vegetarian or healthy items. Two of us had the Cobb salad and it was quite nice. The third had the sliders, which along with the sliders, were also very good. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing - how it should be.

This restaurant is always solid and reliable. The food is very good, the service is excellent, and it is a comfortable environment. I travel to DC often and stay in the hotel immediately across the street. PJ Clarkes is a regular stop.

Very nice dinner
Very good on all points. Professional, friendly, attentive service, comfortable steakhouse/upscale pub feel. The dry-aged strip was excellent. I recommend the perfect Manhattan for a cocktail choice. Good downtown location too, right between Farragut West and McPherson Sq Metro stops.

Since I don't eat meat, I found the menu limiting. But it was the perfect spot near the office for lunch. Service was excellent

Give Sidecar a try
My boyfriend and I have eaten at P.J. Clarke's a few times, but this time we wanted to try Sidecar. The hostess accommodated our request and we were able to leave the noisy and busy upstairs for the much more subdued and old-school Sidecar. The cozy feel was perfect and we were able to have a nice meal without having to shout at one another. The food, though similar to what is available upstairs, was great. I had the crispy chicken and veggies and my boyfriend had the chopped salad. We started with the tater tots and short rib egg rolls (we get them every time. yum). Overall, a very nice meal. I wish we could have stayed longer and didn't have to run out to get to our comedy show!
