Of course you would expect any Irish pub to be busy right after the parade on St. Patrick's Day in NYC! We walked in and it was standing room only, with Irish music playing and a great vibe. The hostess asked if we were eating, the key question. We said yes and she told us to go upstairs and ask... More

My self and my family (one 11 year old, one 17 Year old) stumbled across this Pub one evening and we never looked back. The food here was the best home like dinner I had while staying in New York and we ate in the boat house resturant for Xmas day, they had nothing on the food served here. Cocktails... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night, around 5:30 pm. Got a table right away. Only downfall, it was the last booth in the back near the bathrooms. Our server was OK. She may have been new, she had to refer to the menu to answer questions. Food came quickly and was good. I had the fish fry,... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a good time and I am sorry that your server was not as prompt as she should have been. We set high standards for our servers and expect that they have a full and comprehensive knowledge of the menu. It is always good to know first hand when there is something... More

A very busy place after work hours, but with good food at good prices, and friendly service. I stayed at the Hilton down the block and this was my go-to.

We stopped late evening for drinks and a nosh. Bartender was friendly and made a mean martini!! Can't really speak to food as we had standard bar fare. The place was busy and lively but not loud. Felt like a locals place.

While just walking looking for a place to eat. We walked by here and it looked crowded but a few tables were open so we went in. We were seated quickly, and the service was very good. My wife and I split a cheeseburger and a bowl of steak and mushroom soup. Both were very good. The soup was fantastic!

Serving raw meat. To a child. We did not select this place. First we went to The Irish Pub and they had no seating available. In a quick bait and switch scheme, a phone call was made to their "alternate restaurant around the corner" which was this place. They had a table. However the menu was not the same. Nor... More

This was my fourth visit to this restaurant and I was a little disappointed with the service. There was a crowd of people inside and several waiting to get in. The food that is served is very good and they have a few things that you would consider to be Irish style which is one of the reasons I keep... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
