Awesome service and food. Kid friendly. Staff members were wonderful. Great patio seating with view of White House. Casual and cozy. Very welcoming place
Great Lobster roll
Good hot food. Prompt wait staff.
Had an absolutely lovely & enjoyable evening.
Wait staff was superb!
I was a regular at the original PJ Clarke's in NYC over 30 years ago - it was fun to be in a spot that evoked those memories, including the Cadillac Burger. I'm in DC a lot for meetings, usually in or near the 16th & K NW area, so I see myself hitting this spot again!
Food was terrible. We started with bloody marries (this was for brunch) and we both thought they were one of the worst we’ve ever had. They were either way too strong, had horrible-tasting cheap vodka, or maybe a combination of the two.
The burger my friend ordered was ok, but just very basic. It looked like the bun came out of a pack you’d buy at a grocery store, it was even all smashed down like it had been in a stack in a plastic bag. I had the vegetable frittata, which was just ok. Very simple and boring. Wasn’t served with anything on the side.
The whole meal was very disappointing, definitely won’t be back. Which is too bad, it’s a decent location and we need an good American restaurant in the area.
Food was good except the bacon on my chicken sandwich was not cooked . Manager was apologetic but appreciated me telling them . He gave us a free dessert .
The food was very pricy but it was very good
We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our appetizer to arrive. Then, the meal was only so-so.
Best Filet Mignon EVER! Incredible flavor. Excellent calamari, salmon, Brussels sprouts too. Cucumber jalapeño margarita is outstanding! GEEAT MEAL.
Loved the restaurant and service received...however, hope the greeting at the beginning and end is improved...smiling from the person that seats you and then let’s you know a server is coming and thank you for dining or come again when leaving...no smile at the beginning and nothing said when we left.
The food was mediocre at best. I was there with my two children. We ordered three burgers, a crag cake, root beer and club soda for $91.00. The service was horrible. I did complain to the manager which informed me that the waiter was new. Great.
I was a bit disappointed when told “we have no more Cabernet by the glass”. In all my dining experience that was a first! Besides that our server couldn’t have been more attentive. We had an overall good experience.
Great food, attentive service, fun atmosphere. Would always recommend as a great place to meet friends or have a casual lunch with colleagues.
The chicken club sandwich was honestly one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. The chicken tasted like it was slow roasted - so moist and tender! Great job!
Great service for a quick meal
They’ll never be able to replicate the wonder of 55th and 3rd, but it’s pretty close.
Food was slightly above average however the service was very good, our waiter was very attentive to our needs. For DC the prices were very reasonable.
The lobster roll is one of the best in the DMV! Their crab cake is also divine.
Anyone who is a foodie would love this place; you will not be disappointed!
Good atmosphere. Seating downstairs lacks energy at lunchtime - too isolated.
Nafris, was our server and he was wonderful. The homemade tater tots were AMAZING.
I think what I ordered was just not what I was expecting and so it wasn't something I enjoyed. Overall the food looked great coming out of the kitchen. I also thought it was overpriced for what it was so not likely that I would go back on my own but it is a great place for a business lunch.
The restaurant was noisy for a business meal. The food was quite good--steak was not as tender as my colleague would have hoped. I had a Wagyu bacon cheeseburger that was quite good. The wine was good but expensive. The waitress did not seem to know about letting red wine breathe. She would benefit from training on handling premium wine.
Service was excellent. Outstanding avocado toast..
Lack of personality by waitress. Food was not a value for setting. Dinner options were acceptable, yet nothing seemed to “known for”
Had to get servers attention several times for refills and requests- we did not seem to be a concern or worthy of attention
The food was not bad, but nothing to write home about. Very run-of-the-mill. Service was attentive. Would return if there were no other option, but considering the level of restaurants in that area, I'm not sure that would be necessary.
Great place. great location!
I ordered the wrong thing.. a cheeseburger!
My friend had Chicken Pillard and it was excellent.
Would go again.
Me and my boyfriend are a regular here for dinner. Autumn takes great care of us! She's amazing and the food is yummy.
Very friendly wait staff. Food was good. Enjoyed having lunch there with a friend.
Great Saturday late lunch in DC! Delicious crab cake, no filler! Known for burgers but lots of people having oyster too! The drink special was worth it. There were 3 of us, first drink $10, next $5, 3rd $1. The Bloody Mary was awesome..Also good location up 16th street from White House.
TatOr tots , yes lol I can't begin to describe how delicious they were ....and my crab cake sandwich was even more tasty ..drinks were own point I had the Handsome so good for two rounds ...our server was so bubbly ..thoroughly enjoyed this overall experience
I had not been to PJ Clarke's in awhile -- prices seemed to have gone up considerable and it is now quite expensive for what you get, food is pub-like, not better or worse, but with $22+ salads and the now ubiquitous $20 hamburger, it seems a bit less desirable. Our server must have interrupted a conversation five times, which seems unnecessary.
My husband and I had dinner here for our first time on Valentine's Day (2018). When we first arrived we were greeted by a great host with great fun energy! I expressed to her that this was our first time here and I wanted a nice seat. She gave me a few options to decide from and then lead me down to the lower level. I was first blown away by the secret sliding doors. We would have never know they were doors for the lower level.
The waitress and staff were phenomenal. Explained the dishes very well, gave you enough privacy, but never seem to forget about our table. The food was very flavorful (tater tots, steak, crab cake and cream spinach)....and the drinks! My husband got a Margarita and I, Lemon Drop Martini....PERFECT..to the "T"!!!
Excellent experience! P.J. Clarke's will definitely be seeing us again!
The food was good and the atmosphere was cozy. The waiter "D" was exceptional.
The interior is dark, so bring your flashlight. The food was fine, service was very good. The menu is broad and there's probably something for everyone, so it's a good choice for groups or business meetings.
The seafood was not very fresh, and the steak was awful (quality, over-cooked, over-seasoned).
Food was awesome. Drinks were a little expensive. Server was good, but not great. I'd eat here again.
Decent place. You're paying 20+ for average food. For example, I got a Salmon salad for $24, very below expectations. A friend of mine got a sales with Chicken, again over priced for the quality.
Would I go back? Potentially for a sandwich, but not for a while.
Waitress was very nice.
However, Well done steak does not mean burnt. Disappointed that meat was burnt and that it does not come with sides included. Very odd.
We waited nearly 20 mins for a server to approach the table, and then he was pretty absent and got our orders wrong.
Ahi tuna tacos were delicious. Good atmosphere. Highly recommend.
