“Great spot for dinner in Midtown!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Amazing food at P.J. Clarke's with an always great American menu. This New York original is a must stop if you're in town for business, vacation, or a romantic night out. P.J. Clarke's always has a lively atmosphere, wonderful food, and fantastic service. Make sure you try the sliders!

Take a look around this location and you'll notice scenes from AMC's Mad Men.

“Not surprising hamburger”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile



Hamburger was modest and small, with a good meat, the local is a small place with two many tables and high prices.
I think that I won't come back

“Fun, History Restaurant”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We took our grandson to PJ Clarke's for the casual atmosphere and the historic nature of the restaurant. It is one of the oldest restaurants in mid-town New York. The Cadillac burger was very good. The prices are typical New York....slightly high. We enjoyed the ambiance, and lively atmosphere.

“still here but changed”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We remember what it was like in the od days. Post Ray Milland but pre new take over. The hambergers have gone down in quality but the price have gone up ncredibly. The urinals are the only positive thing about the place now

“Nice pub atmosphere. Food OK.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had lunch at the original PJ Clarke's. Nice, old world atmosphere. Beef stew was good. My wife had a Reuben which was not so good. Too dry.
