Just finished our meal outside. Great outdoor seating. Happy casual atmosphere. Very attentive (but not invasive) service from all. Sweet potato fries delicious. Will come back.

PJ's is classic DC bar. Old time feel, loud and good looking after work crowd. Enjoyed Ribeye that was done perfectly.

PJ Clarke’s was recommended to us by the concierge at Hay Adams, when we needed a nice relaxed place in the center of DC for a quick dinner, and it did in no way let us down. The restaurant is almost like a diner but...More

The service was excellent. I did not like what I originally ordered (I was trying something new). Management was gracious, professional and pleasant. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. I would gladly return and recommend others to go.

They have a special room you might ask about. In my view they could accommodate your group. Check the web for the prices. I thought they were reasonable.

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.
