I had two sides as my meal - the truffle fries and the mac & cheese. Both were fantastic! The mac & cheese has bacon in it, but I'm betting they actually use pancetta. My friend had a salad that was so beautiful! Also, our server Delores was so pleasant and made excellent suggestions. I love the Third Ave location, but will happily return to this downtown gem.

Been eating those burgers for a long, long time. East Side, West Side, now Downtown. Reliable, good, solid.

Chose to stop in for lunch since it was close to the event we were going to. Great decision. We were greeted as soon as we walked in by the friendly hostess. We were seated and quickly attended to by Sarah. She was sweet, knowledgeable and friendly. The food, oh boy the food. Everything was amazing. We started with some Cowboy Oysters, they were fresh an yummy. I had the Smoked salmon eggs benedict. It was light, flavorful and cooked perfectly. The hubby had a Clarke burger. it was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. The girls had French toast and Avocado toast. The both enjoyed their dishes very much. What a gem PJ Clarkes was. All the staff we encountered were so friendly. They smiled, said hello and even made some small talk. Definitely would recommend.

Friedly staff but too busy and server forgot drink order. Food marginal and too pricey. Commercial, poor acoustics, stick to the original for a bar experience this location is pricey and not even interesting! A suburban mall restaurant for sure!

When you go to PJ Clark's, you have to get the burger! It's a must! When at brunch, you must pair that burger with a Bloody Mary and you will NOT be disappointed. This is a drink on massive steroids! Makes all other Bloody Mary's pale in comparison.

Good food and well crafted drinks. Exorbitant prices ($19 brunch cocktails - $25 with tax and tip; or $76 for a bottle of generic rosé wine, meaning $100+ with tax and tip). Excellent ambiance for brunch on a sunny day under the trees next to the marina. Will come back for sure, but will be ready to pay a premium.

You can't beat the view sitting outside at PJ Clarks. But, it was not the Father's Day dinner we hoped for. We had a 5:30 reservation and we were rushed from the moment we sat down since the kitchen closes at 6 on Sundays. We weren't told what was no longer available on the menu until we tried to order it. Forgot the salads altogether and brought out the raw bar platter at the same time as the burgers. Medium burger was nearly raw. Server was nice and apologetic, but inattentive, leaving dirty dishes piled up - no excuse for that.

It was my anniversary. I ordered appetizer that never came.Service was spotty with waiter apologizing several times for his absence. Table next to us in the open outside had a dog which kept incessantly barking. I appreciate the food quality and outside ambiance but the service is terrible.

This place used to serve high-quality, upscale pub food at higher-than-pub prices. Now, portions very small, prices too high. I ordered a chopped salad which came in a small dessert-sized bowl. Burger was small and that's all you get except for two paper-thin pickles. Roast chicken also a small portion. Left feeling still hungry. Food arrived barely warm, not hot at all. Not going back anytime soon.

I love the location of this restaurant and the food/drinks are very good. However, we had a 5:00 reservation and was told the kitchen closed at 6:00 after we only ordered a round of appetizers. I wish that was noted before we made the reservation. Other than that...it was a lovely evening.

Birthday. Service was not consistent. Food was ok. The Spanish frittata was not even warm and it was a 90 degree day. The Bloody Mary was so spicy 2 of the 3 people who ordered the drink either returned it or just barely drank it. Kudos foe the stringy onions. Vanilla brownie Sunday was fine but the desert selection was anemic. Fortunately the location is wonderful.

12:00 pm reservation —sat at 12:10 even though table was ready, the servers were not out yet. Kept being told “waiting on service.” Finally say and ordered coffee and server never came back for food order. Had to go to the host stand at 12:45 to confirm we still hadn’t ordered and no one checked on us. Finally ordered and placed an order for a Spritz cocktail....kept going back and forth with the waitress, I knew she was unsure of the order. She came back with two Sprite sodas. Explained again, finally got the Spritzes. When the bill came the Sprites were on the bill. Had to explain to her we didn’t offer the sprites and shouldn’t have to pay for them. Our lunch ended up being 2.5 hours, and while I appreciate not being rushed on a 90 degree day in nyc, it was a little rough sitting there with one thing going wrong after another. Big PJ Clarke’s fan, but this was a disappointing experience.
