The celebrated saloon is long in the tooth (120 years old), but a recent face-lift (augmented menu, nightly specials) revitalized the old boy. The bar up front attracts the after-work pinstriped crowd, while the dining room pulls in a slightly older, blazer-wearing set. The hamburger is still honest and juicy; go ahead, customize it with cheese, bacon, chili or béarnaise sauce. Cobb salad, with bright greens and lots of blue cheese, is a meal in itself.

Been going to P.J.'s since I was a young boy, my father brought me and steeped me in the history and legends of P.J.s. Even met Jake LaMotta there my first visit. Never got a bad meal or a bad drink at P.J.s (Jerry behind the bar is TOPS). It is a true, solid N.Y. saloon, a class joint. Wish I lived closer to this venerable institution to partake regularly. Best to Phil S.
I come here for the start of a guys night out. I recommend the oysters or the cheeseburger. Last time I went I got the shepherd's pie and was completely satisfied too.
Naturally this place is going to get a little crowded being in midtown, however, if you can make it over on a weekend you'll be comfortable.
I love P.J .Clarkes. I love the way it hasn't changed since I discovered it i the late 60's. Thank you Philip and gang. I am coming to New York on The Queen Mary on August 3rd for 5 hours only, and certainly 3 of those , at will be at P.J's. I've had two wonderful birthdays there in the last few years (is Jackie, our waitress, still there? and Carole? Can't wait to find out. x
