“Always good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We usually order the terrific hamburgers but the sweet potato fries are a must.
The wait staff is always very friendly and helpful.

“Couldn't be more convenient to Lincoln Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Love their burgers and their crab cakes, but especially like their Skuna Bay salmon. Lots of other delicious dishes to choose from, including a raw bar and a different special for each night of the week. Very popular, so if you don't have a reservation, you'll probably have to wait to be seated. And it is often very noisy, particularly near the bar. Or try sitting downstairs, where it is sometimes quieter. Service is quick and efficient and prices reasonable.

“Great Lincoln Center place to grab a bite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Went to lunch prior to theatre at Lincoln Center. Was seated very promptly with a reservation. Waitress was super. My husband and I share and there was no extra plate charge. The menu does have burgers, but it is quite an extensive menu. We dined on Sunday and they also had a Sunday Brunch menu. Prices are not outrageous for NYC. They get very crowded. I recommend reservations. Old looking decor is well done. Also have a bar crowd.

“Can't go wrong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I still love the original PJ Clarkes in Midtown East, but the UWS site has more room and obviously newer. Still has the same classic food and good service. Great place to grab a drink or sit down for a family meal.
