P.J. Clarke's at Tioga Downs Casino Resort is a little taste of the big apple with an upstate, New York small town charm combined with a Resort full of fun. Although the restaurant is fairly new at Tioga Downs Casino Resort, the name P.J. Clarke's is a legend in New York. So in the original P.J. Clarke's words we're serving up "Fresh food, frosty drinks and good, old-fashioned conversation." P.J. Clarke's is know for their delicious burgers, such as our Cadillac Burger (double smoked country bacon, onion, American cheese, and bread & butter pickle) but we are not your average burger joint. Add in a full fresh Raw Bar with the best seafood in town and a master at shucking, the best Maryland Crab cakes, to die for French Onion Soup, Juicy USDA grass fed steaks, and much more!

We were very happy with our dinner. I do have a couple of complaints though. First was the bottle of white wine we ordered was not cold and my second complaint is the area where your dirty dishes go is in the middle of the restaruent and it was very loud with scrapping dishes, clanging dishes and chatter. Our food was fantastic! The jumbo shrimp cocktail was delicious! I could have made a meal of just shrimp. My main course was scallops and they were fantastic! Not one grain of sand. My husband had the homemade tater tots and a cheeseburger and he said everything was delicious! We were to full for dessert. We are looking forward to going again in the future.

This was our New Year’s dinner with my elderly parents,(late 80’s). While this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, we would have appreciated being in a more lighted area. Whole restaurant was dimly lit. Thank you.

I was very pleased with my New Year’s Eve dining experience. Our table was ready when we arrived and our server was very prompt in attending to our table. The food was excellent and the wait time for our drinks and meals was very short. All in all the experience was awesome and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again

The steak was absolutely delicious! So we’re all the sides that we got with them. And the side salad was delicious. Our server was very polite. Conscientious. Would definitely go again!

We have been to PJ Clarks before. The food was well under cooked, risotto had no flavor and server was just not on par with pricing and service for such an establishment.

Our party of 4 was seated right on time. Our waitress was wonderful. Attentive and efficient. The food was outstanding. Scallops delicious. Crispy Fried Shrimp great flavor. Calamari and sauce excellent. We've gone to PJ's previously and it was ok. There is a definite overall improvement.

Some of us ordered from the Bar menu, and could not have been more pleased, food was great. Other people ordered from regular menu and were also very pleased with the food. The service couldn't have been better.

We really enjoyed our meals. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a free dessert due to it being our anniversary. Our waitress was very polite, professional and did an excellent job waiting on us.

We had an anniversary dinner reservation for 6:30 on Saturday, Oct 2. When we arrived at that time we were told it would be at least 15 minutes more and that we were to check back (??). After 15 minutes no table was still available. At 7:10, the hostess happened to be walking thru the area we were waiting and we asked if a table was ready yet - oh yes, then she seated us. We waited about 10 minutes once we got seated (which was nothing). Food arrived in a timely 20 minutes. And it was ABSOLUTELY delicious! It just would have been nice if at the time of making the reservation, we were told that staff was short and that there might be delays. The reservation process didn't appear to work very good...

Amy the bartender is amazing the made the best Manhattan I ever had! She was very busy but never lost her smile! She kept track of every customer and every order with grace and confidence!! It was so pleasant and comfortable we decided to have dinner at the bar. Amy hit another home run with her recommendation of seafood risotto! It was absolutely delicious Can’t wait to go back! As for the slot machines they get a big zero Lost all my money trying for a bonus or free games. Just didn’t happen 😡

The food was amazing, service great. Didn’t love our seating as it was too close to the bar and very loud, but after speaking to the hostess, she said we could request different seating next time when we make the reservation. Reservation was easy through Open Table. Highly recommend for a great dining experience!!

We arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation only to be told they were busy and couldn't seat us until 8 pm. They did comp us an appetizer after we asked. My fish was a little over cooked, my sisters fish was raw in the center and had to be sent back, my wife's dinner was bland and lacking based on the menu. Service wasn't as good as usual,have eaten there several times. May be a while before I go back, the rest of my party has no desire to return
