Description: K Street, the road to the White House, is also the proud home to P.J. Clarke’s—the storied American Saloon with a history that dates back to the late 1800s. The original P.J. Clarke’s in Manhattan has stood beneath rows of skyscrapers for nearly 130 years, collecting famous and infamous regulars. Appreciated for the convivial ambiance and classic fare, P.J. Clarke’s is the quintessential American Saloon. In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.

Great service, we both had Chicken Palliard, delicious! Outside dining was enjoyable. We would definitely return.

The food was excellent and the ambiance sitting outside on a warm evening even better. The staff were great. Only downside was they don't serve "fancy" drinks.

I have eaten Burger in many cities, I have no doubt that one of the best burgers in the world are prepared here. I ordered one with egg and hollandaise sauce and it was delicious

The restaurant has a beautiful terrace, inside is very cozy ... It has a private area exclusively for members.

The desserts are not a big deal, the service is goo ... I came to Washington for 4 days and I went twice to this place; Their prices are acceptable and portions are generous.

One thing says it all.... a crabcake served on a wonderbread hamburger bun!
That is sooo wrong.
Add in... food overcooked & menu very expensive.
Save your $$ and go somewhere else for lunch.

We had lunch at PJ Clarks on a Friday in August. Our waiter was very attentive and a good storyteller with lots of DC gossip. I had the oysters, a very good entree salad and a glass of wine (or two). Another person in our group ordered crabcakes and I tried them - very good. Would definitely eat here again.
