SINCE 1884, We've been serving up the same things: fresh food, frosty drinks and good, old-fashioned conversation.

We could talk for hours about our history, our star-studded cast of diners, blah blah blah. But, for now, that's beside the point. Grab yourself a stool at the bar and order a cold one.

Come in once, we'll know your name.
Twice, we'll know your order.
Three times, and you're family.

We met friend’s at PJ Clark’s for an informal dinner. After asking the waitstaff to lower the music we settled in with drinks and delightful conversation. My burger was very good; my husband ordered the butterfish special which was excellent but he said the sushi rice and vegetable were just ok. I plan on returning with friends for lunch.

Good location and great outdoor seating. I do not recommend the ribs (poor value and not too good). Good kids menu and other offerings are good. A little expensive for what it is, but you cannot beat location.

I wish I could give this restaurant 100 stars! Everything was absolutely incredible. From the location, to the food and drinks down to the service, it was a home run! Claire was an absolute dream to work with when coordinating our bachelorette dinner and accommodating our strict dietary needs. Hannah was our server and went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of. Our bride had an experience that she will never forget and it was at the hands of this great restaurant. Thank you!

I ordered the fish and chips which were soggy. The fish was mushy.
My bf’s ordered the chicken but was disappointed because the mashed potatoes were liquid.

I’m sure this was a one off occurrence and could happen anywhere but I had hair on my plate and I had to get it sent back. They took it off the bill and replaced my food within a reasonable amount of time. The waiter was great and the food was delicious and totally worth it otherwise. I loved the location and the drinks were strong and worth the money. I would recommend dining here for sure but make sure to double check your food always! I would return.

Went for brunch at PJ Clarke’s. Haven’t been there for awhile and went with outdoor seating which was very nice. Also had a pleasant server. Food came out and it was fine - nothing special. But I was shocked at the price. We each ordered an omelet which came with nothing. So we ordered one side of toast and one side of fries to share and my wife had a drink. And for that bit of food and one drink, it was $80. Very overpriced. Too bad.

We had a great dinner near the bar with Dan as the server/bartender. He was very efficient and friendly, making it a fun evening. The food was delicious! We had the deviled eggs, crab dip, fish and chips, salmon and swordfish. Everything tasted amazing and was presented well. The entire staff from the food runner(Guillermo) to the manager, Clare, were awesome! Looking forward to returning!

The ambiance, location, service and experience was really nice. The food was sub-par, portions were very small, and it was all way overpriced. I’ve lived in Philly for over a decade and was astonished. Definitely seems to be catering to an out-of-town tourist crowd.
