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.
