    The history of this restaurant is a big enough draw...combined with excellent food and service puts it over the top!!!. We sat in the booth that Dick Clark would eat in every NYE after the ball drop. Buddy Holly proposed to his girlfriend here and Jackie O would come with her kids. Burgers are in my top 3. As well as the fish and chips. Everything we had was 5 star. Our server was very attentive and gave us great advice...the Manager. Mazin Manahi pulls it altogether and is the epitome of what a host should be. Thank you for a great experience!!!

    We are a fan of PJ Clarke's. We normally dine down on Vesey as we have friends nearby. Our son's favorite spot. Typically consistent and good food. Fun atmosphere at most all location we have been to dine.

    P.J. Clarke’s is a casual, dark, and cozy pub serving very good, upscale comfort food at VERY reasonable prices. The menu has changed for the better as it now includes some lighter, healthier fare (in addition to the pub fare). The arugula salad, fish and chips, and lobster Cobb salad were all tasty, fresh and quite enjoyable. (We LOVE the lobster Cobb with one half of a lobster over fresh greens, blue cheese, bacon and cherry tomatoes.) The drinks are strong and good. The dining room, (in the back, where we sit) is family friendly and less frenetic (although still crowded) than the too noisy front bar. P.J. Clarke’s is reminiscent of the good pubs in London, and it’s a good place to go when the bar food hankering hits! Try the back dining room if you’re with the kids, older relatives or you’re not in the mood for the REALLY loud tavern vibe. (We do still miss the usual, regulars/pre-pandemic front of house staff). PJ Clarke’s remains a very good, reasonably priced, neighborhood casual tavern. It’s a great go to spot for a tasty, casual dinner!

    Con: We were seated in the back room. it was the noisiest restaurant we have ever been in. We had a small table so were close to each other and still couldn’t carry on a conversation. They need to consider getting an acoustic ceiling at the very least. Pros: good service and food. The front room is quieter.
