P.J. Clarke's - Third Avenue
It was closed. All of their locations were closed. Open Table should not have let me make a reservation there.
Never a bad experience ah PJ Clarke’s. Took the social distancing and COVID restrictions seriously and felt very comfortable there.
I stopped in for an impromptu lunch at P.J. Clarke's on Third Avenue, and had such a great experience. They did a superb job setting up barriers between tables in the dining room, so it feel very safe. I had the arugula and honeycrisp apple salad to start - sensational. I had the house-made fish sandwich and fries, which was just amazing. And I finished with some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. My server Linda was awesome - she always knew what I needed before I even asked for it (I told her that she clearly knows to read minds.) In these challenging times, this is such a comforting and special place.
The staff is incredible! With all that is going on, they are welcoming and inviting and such a pleasure to deal with.
Best Burgers and Oysters, perfectly cooked and service was perfection.
Very unremarkable across the board. There a many other choices for a 21 dollar cheeseburger around.
So happy to be able to come back to PJ’s. Missed them so much. Lunch was great as always.
The burger and fries lived up to the history. Was disappointed they didn’t have more to their raw bar selection. One of the guests drinking wine said all three types of wine she had were no good and didn’t taste like they were from a freshly opened bottle. When she tried to finally ask for her third different kind of glass to removed from the bill, the waiter didn’t even entertain the idea and still charged it. The cookies for the ice cream sandwich were not good at all. I know times are rough for these restaurants, but we are the customers who are keeping you open, a little customer service goes a long way.
Always fabulous both cuisine and staff!!
Great food and service. Highly recommend
Rex and the whole staff are wonderful. You cant beat the food for American fare!
As good as ever. I missed a little noice but the hambourger its the brst
Haven't stopped in here for a long time, looking for a good place during these times can be difficult. I had a wonderful lunch with my daughter. First time here for her. She loves old architecture, so she really enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff was great as was the food. Had the Proper Fish Chips, burger and chicken sandwich.
Everything was delicious! Thank you for being open.
Amazing experience! The best oysters I’ve had by far in the city :) will be returning very soon.
Great burger that is underrated! The service is perfect. Not too much, not too little. It gets a bit loud and it's an "older" bar so there isn't any updated experience - floors are old, tables a bit uncomfortable, people squished in .. but amazing place for a lunch.
When in NYC we always go to P.J Clarke's.I've going there since I was a child . It was one of my parents' favorite restaurant. I love the food, the atmosphere, the happiness that you feel when you're there. I would certainly recommend it as must go place in NYC.
This was our second trip there in the same week. Both times the food was amazing (please try ANY of their burgers). Both times, the service was wonderful. Sarah and Anthony took great care of us.
Always a great take !
Lunch with friends from out of town, P.J. Clarke’s is always a charmer! The fish and chips were crisp and hot and delicious!
Food and service were great. Not fancy but really solid food and bar choices
Always good to make a reservation; quite a few people didn't have a reservation and had to wait..
Food was mediocre but way overpriced. Felt a little rushed by the wait staff, despite there being many open tables.
Sorry to hear that Emily. Was it the burger or the fish tacos that you did not enjoy? Also, I would never want anyone to feel rushed in anyway. I sincerely apologize if thats how we made you feel. I hope this experience has not soured you on PJ Clarke’s as I’d love the opportunity to make it up to you. Please reach out if you’d like to give us another shot. - Michael Long, GM
our server Pat was great! opted for the fried egg on the cadillac burger. my boyfriend and I had a great meal! :)
Thanks Alex! I’ll be sure to share your kind words with Pat.
Had a wonderful evening! Food and drink were excellent. Our server was personable and gave excellent recommendations.
Thanks for the great review. Do you recall your server’s name? I’d like to share your kind words with them.
It's a nice place. Too noisy and the tables are too close together
Thanks for the review David. We are in the process of addressing the noise level. In the meantime, we have some nook tables available upon request that provide a bit of reprieve from the crowds as well as our dining room on the second floor, Sidecar, for those looking for a quieter, more elevated PJ Clarke’s dining experience.
been coming to PJ Clarkes for almost 50 years. most restaurants get old and food gets bad but not here. it is a bit pricey for lunch but the service and high quality food make it well worth the visit. although I now live in Boston, when business brings me to mid town this is my first choice.
Thanks for the great review Mike! Hopefully business brings you back around soon.
Never disappoints! Amongst the best burgers in the city, nice atmosphere, PJ I'm sure would be proud.
Thanks Matt! We’re doing our best to carry on his legacy.
The best burger of New York, we loved it! A very nice and cozy restaurant with a cool bar!!
Thanks for the great review! It is a really good burger.
Service was okay but food was bland
Sorry to hear that. I’d love to find out more about your visit so I can use it as a learning experience for my team. Please reach out at your earliest convenience. - Michael Long, GM
I always enjoy going to PJ Clarke's. The food is always great!
Thanks for the great review!
Had not been there in years and it was as good as I remember
Thanks Edward! Hopefully it’s not that long until your next visit.
Witch my family
great atmospgere. exxcellent food and terrific service
Thanks Gail! Hope to see you again soon.
Great quality, fresh products, excellent experience overall.
Cons: lack of food choice for kids, you end up ordering 15$ appetizers for toddlers. No high chairs either.
The lobster roll was terrific and our server was delightful and welcoming. Great experience!
Thanks for the great review!
Absolutely perfect meal with the family during our New York break! Service, food, drinks, ambience and surroundings all perfect. Highly recommended!
Thanks for the great review Lesley!
Old school New York restaurant with a traditional menu that is consistently good, especially the seafood and the burgers. It’s a must for us every time we visit NYC
Thanks for the great review! See you next time.
Very serviceminded staff. Delicious burgers.
Great atmosphere, but a bit noicy for «Old» people.
A place We definately will come back to.
Thank you so much! Looking forward to your return.
