We like the clubby atmosphere one would expect from a former PGA professional. The service was a bit spotty, but overall very good. Cuisine clubby as well, but that is not a negative. Enjoyed very much.

Darren Clark's is a comfortable and relaxing venue to enjoy a good food and a beer after a long summers day. The French onion soup gets rave reviews and I totally agree. I'm sure the steaks are fabulous but a little too pricey for me....More

Darren Clarke and Michael Doyle teamed up to create a classic. Darren Clarke’s Tavern is the climax of all they have experienced from many years at the top of their fields. Mike came to the table with a career’s worth of experience at the finest steakhouse in New York City. Darren Clarke brought an illustrious career in golf, representing Ireland in both amateur and professional tournaments including the World Cup, the Alfred Dunhill Cup and on five consecutive Ryder Cup teams. Darren has won 22 tournaments on the European and PGA tours. Both know what they’re doing in a restaurant or a bar. Clarke’s is their way of sharing their own experience and passion with others who love excellent food and fellowship.
