*Happy Hour Review Only*
As if Vegas visitors weren't SEXED up enough, here comes $1 oysters for your aphrodisiacstic pleasure (so good it deserves a new word)! Every day happy hour from 2:45-6pm features a different oyster on rotation. Been here a few times and every bite has always been deliciously fresh. It comes with creamy horseradish, vinegar-shallot or cocktail sauces for your choosing.
PJ Clarke's also offers $3 beers and 2 for 1 drink specials for their cocktail of the day, but neither is as good of a deal as the oysters. The beer comes in a mug the size of your hand.
Bottom line. When you're done shopping, take a seat at the bar (oyster or regular) and order a dozen happy hour oysters. Then turn around and say hi to me, because I'm likely camped out there. Added as a MUST VISIT for my Vegas trips!

Countless bold men have made the journey from East to West, from Lewis & Clark, who pretty much discovered the whole damn region, to the 49ers, who recently discovered what a chump Josh McDaniels is. Now a great classic pub with a man's name is doing the same: PJ Clarke's.
A cheery departure from the nonstop glitz of most Vegas restos, PJ's is modeled after its beloved burger-slingin' NYC counterpart, employing a $250,000 mahogany bar taken from the Rothschild estate in Bordeaux, subway-tiled walls, Victorian- and '40s-style vintage lighting fixtures, and a jukebox strictly pumping out classics: Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and the Stones, proving you can't always get what you want...which is nonstop Ini Kamoze!!! Steaks're all trucked in from Montana's Meyer Ranch, and cuts range from a 10oz filet to a 14oz NY strip, while their 10oz Steak Frites is served four different ways: Au Poivre, Bordelaise, Roquefort, and Classique, also Mo'Nique's signature line of really stylish college courses, now available at Target. Non-steak offerings include oysters, jumbo shrimp, littlenecks, and cherrystones from the raw bar, plus homestyle favorites like Shepherd's Pie, chicken pot pie, baked mac & cheese with bacon, meatloaf with gravy, and of course their famous burgers, load-able with bacon, béarnaise, sauteed mushrooms, chili, and smothered onions, which despite not being raw, the moment you talk to a girl will make you cry.
The old-school bar's filling you up with small but a diverse selection of taps, wines, and classic cocktails, plus desserts like apple cobbler, chocolate chip cookie souffle, and bread pudding w/ whiskey butter sauce, which Josh McDaniels would like to apologize for catching you eating like a slob on camera, although he's already taking the necessary precautions to ensure it never happens again.
