P.J. Clarke's at the Curtis
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.

Wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and service was lovely, too. Thank you PJ’s … we’ll be back!
No vegan or vegetarian options although online menu said their were. Ordered three sides. French fries were cold. Potato/fennel side had no fennel and potatoes were raw. The Brussels sprouts with tomato jam came plain no jam. Our waiter was nice but frustrating dinner
I don’t say all this about too many places
Lovely day eating outside on balcony. Food excellent. Experience all good.
My major issue is how expensive this restaurant is
The wine is the cheapest item on the menu
Salads 29$ plus
This is excessive
Kudos to the hostess, manager and our server. They went out of their way to accomodate our request for special seating due to hearing issues for one of our party. They could not have been more pleasant or helpful and have certainly won our loyalty. This establishment has undergone steady improvement since first opening and is now one of our "go to" spots.
Delicious brunch and drinks
Although a bit touristy, PJ Clarke's is a fine place to eat, especially if you stick to what made them famous -- things like the burgers. The atmosphere is comfortable and the service was good. The prices, though, are on the high side. $22 for a burger and fries is really pushing it. Oh, and avoid the parking lot in the Curtis Building, which is where PJ Clarke's is housed. Their pricing is both exorbitant and misleading.
Great food, service and atmosphere, although a bit loud as we were seated in the bar during a game. Prices were very high.
We were very pleased. Of course, the prices are high, and we can’t always afford to dine like that, but it’s worth it from time to time.
A group of 6 of us had something to discuss and met at PJ Clarke’s. We sat outside in a private space and enjoyed happy hour. PJ Clarke’s staff was exceptionally accommodating. Everything was great, service, food and drinks all excellent! Thank you!
Great service! Menu was nicely varied and great portions but so-so in taste.
Great happy hour! We shared appetizers (mini burgers, cheesesteak egg rolls) and the food was delicious! Beers were also great. Service was awesome too- friendly bartender, Dan. Lots of large TVs to watch sports. We’ll definitely be back soon
The menu keeps changing with most of it being improvements
However it would be nice to have a simple chicken breast on menu as well as a turkey burger
Because of menu improvements we have been dining at restaurant more often
The restaurant is getting pricey
Entree salads are 29 to 35 dollars
My kids & I love it here!
Great location, helpful staff, friendly bartenders made our dining experience one that we will return too.
They got rid of my favorite menu items since the pandemic. It’s an average place to have a quick bite.
Table wasn’t ready despite reservation. Very slow service
Another Really great meal here. We started with happy hour (ends kind of early at 6, but great deals), then we stayed for more. Delicious food and beer. Awesome TVs, large, clean restrooms. The staff is the best part(Bartenders, Dan and Beth) and the manager, Chris were very friendly. Great neighborhood spot!
We love coming here! Food is always consistent, service is great. Happy hour specials are so good especially for oysters . Favorites are cheesesteak egg rolls, oysters, lobster rolls, lobster Cobb salad, burgers. Never had a bad meal!
The food was good, but we had my Grand daughter with us and they had a children's menu, her grilled cheese was good but was adult size and not what she was expecting. More adult tasting. Why husband had Fish & Chips., They were delicious and I wish I would had ordered it.
Service was good and the meal came quickly.
Great service. Food was okay but not worth price. Needs more seasoning. Sent drink back. Tasted like soda. No liquor. Spent $700 for 6 ppl. Don’t feel like it was worth it but waiter was amazing.
service was great. Food was good, the outside eating area was nice inside was little too loud.
Overall a very pleasant dinner would definitely go again.
I always enjoy eating here. Especially outdoor. Very scenic. So do my children. The hosts are always polite and accommodating, and our waiter was very nice!
We ate outside with our dog who loved it. Beautiful venue. Very good service.
Very good finger food.
I met a friend here for lunch. Food, service were both great.
Another delicious dinner(deviled eggs, salmon, lobster roll) with Dan providing very attentive, friendly service. Nice, clean restrooms too. Thank you!
Always great food and service!!! Thanks again!!!
We had a great view of the park from the porch of the Curtis. Food and drinks were great and service was good too. Very enjoyable dinner, first time here-since we live in Philly it won’t be the last!
Great food and ambiance
Very nice outdoor setting. Food not as good as we remembered. Few salads on the munu
Lovely outdoor seating! The server and hostess were very accommodating. Salads were delicious!
Food is legitimately bad (how do you mess up chicken Caesar salad? With chicken cooked yesterday and doughy croutons) and way overpriced
Came here with girlfriends to see out bartender friend, Dan. Had a really great time! Food and drinks were great! Service by Dan was awesome (the other bartender didn’t really acknowledge us). Thanks for a fun night!!!
Convenient location and accommodating outdoor seating.
It was great!
Slow service but great food and atmosphere. Little noisy inside and tables need to be further apart so you can hear.
Excellent service. The food was okay - not amazing. We came for brunch on a Sunday morning and they only had 4 brunch items on the menu and two brunch cocktail options. I ordered the $16 jumbo bloody mary (i asked if i could just have a normal bloody mary and they said no) and it was so thick it was like drinking a weird syrupy tomato soup. Also i'm pretty sure it had zero alcohol in it. Not worth $16. Also one of my friends ordered the cobb salad with lobster and the lobster was absolute rubber.
I understand it's a weird time with supply chain issues, but this was a bummer. For the amount we paid, I expected better. It seems like they were cutting costs and charging more. This is also a tourist-trap restaurant, too. I just wanted a decent brunch. :( Guess I picked wrong.
My friend and I shared a turkey club sandwich - it was hearty and tasty. We also shared the beet and bean hummus, though my friend thought it needed a little salt, it was delicious.
