P.J. Clarke's DC
In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.
Location was great and food good for the price. I would recommend.
Very pleasant dining experience. Baba is a great server and the meal was excellent.
My burger trio was very dry (ordered medium well). I didn't enjoy it that much. I go to this location about once per year, and I will return because other meal options I've had in the past were very good.
Disappointing was only fair and food came out not correct with the place basically empty
P.J. Clarke's is a must everytime I go to D.C. I love the wedge salad and crab cakes. The server was very attentive and even helped to get things that weren't on the menu. Everyone in our party of 8 had a great evening. I always enjoy the D.C. ambiance in the dining room and the "secret pub" downstairs.
Love the original in nyc - this is a great satellite location! Thanks for hosting our group, we had a wonderful evening.
Cocktail sauce is awful, way too sweet.
Ecc ellen food, great service, pleasant atmosphere.
It was okay. A bit expensive for the quality of the food. Service was a bit slow. I would recommend for dates.
The chicken and sides looked delicious. Unfortunately, the chicken had a few bloody spots. The sides were amazing...mac & cheese, creamy spinach, asparagus, brussel sprouts. We told the serving but we were fine with taking it to go and reheating at home. We were turned off by the lack of concern by the Chef and Mgmt to apologize.
Great place for burgers and drinks.
Very quiet on a Saturday for lunch. Too quiet. Chicken sandwich not very good. Bread fell apart and chicken breast tasted slightly off. Will not go back to this DC location ever.
Was adequate and, for the price, that's not enough.
Love PJ Clarke's and Sidecar! It is reliable, dependable, very good food at reasonable prices. Try their tater tots.
Good lunch, but guest was not happy with food. Lighting was a little too dark
We had a great time for lunch here. The bread pudding was life-changing! Only wish is that the hot cider was in a bigger cup!
P.J. Clarke's was right across the street from our hotel. I've been to the ones in NYC plenty of times and always enjoyed it, so figured why not. We met friends for an early dinner on Saturday night before a show. Overall, it met expectations. Food and service did not wow but totally acceptable. Since it was the weekend and given the location, the place was quiet. I bet it's more bustling during the week days.
The Host/Hostesses seating us were rude to the person I was dining with when they tried to check in before I arrived, but otherwise service was fine.
Food was great!!! Loved the scallops and the Ribeye. Was surprised that the ribeye didn't come with anything. Had to order the side separate. Found that a side of asparagus was $10. The dessert was awesome! Decent price too. We paid $125 for scallops, ribeye, asparagus, 4 beers and a dessert. Depending on where you are from that could be cheap or expensive. Food was great though and so was the service.
It was fine.
Good meal, great atmosphere
We had dinner at PJ Clark’s in Washington & we really enjoyed it
I accidentally left my phone behind & when I called the next morn , everyone was so helpful esp the manager . She opened early for me to retrieve the phone & charged it
What a nice staff!
What a shame. Served raw burger and the replacement was still raw. However, the manager name Eddie had to be pulled over by us to say the replacement burger is still rare. To our surprise, the manager said “well to me this is medium”. I actually love steak tartare and I wouldn’t even call that medium. It was rare! Terrible customer service.
The meal was Oysters, BBQ Blue Burger w/ fries, and Brussels sprouts, dessert was whiskey bread pudding. Everything was flavorful and tasty. The only thing I'd say is the menu is strong. A burger is probably something I would not order again. The burger its self was very flavorful, bun and fries were meh. Next time would order a chop, short ribs, or something along those lines.
Great food and excellent service. Nice cozy place to grab a burger and chat with your friend. We were there for 2 hours and the noise level was great and we were able to talk and hear each other. Menu is good and service was really nice!
Way too expensive for what you're getting, although good quality and a nice ambiance.
I had not been in a couple of years. Food was not as good as I remembered it being. Only ate half my sandwich. There was a sauce on it whereas it should have been plain. The waiter did not notice or offer a replacement. He did ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. Thinking this was a comp, my son and I split a dessert. It ended up being on the bill. I explained everything to the manager. He comped the dessert. I doubt we’ll ever return.
Nice casual place to have a burger and Drinks
Overall a nice experience; I had a burger which I would rate a 7/10 and my friend had the wings which he enjoyed. A nice beer selection and sturdy pours on the cocktails.
Great job--good atmosphere and great food. Salmon serving was a little skimpy but other than that , all good
The food was ok but pricy. Same for the drinks. More than the upscale hotel we were staying at.
Reunion with two classmates
great place. great food, great service. I always have a
Average food quality and an overpriced menu. Really $18 for a regular hamburger. lol Service wasn’t good either.
Great location in down town DC. Easy metro access. Kind staff and the food was plated beautifully and tasted great. I would plan another event here, no question.
Our server was very inattentive. He never refilled our drinks and only checked on us once.
Great food. Great environment and great service. We ate there twice
Great service and excellent food. Enjoyed sitting outside with the buzz of DC and a view of the White House
Always great food and service.
