It's easy to miss this narrow bar and restaurant but if you have time to spare then it's a good stop. The Raw seafood was excellent. There's a good selection of oysters and the clams were great. Shrimp were just a little disappointing size wise but still tasty. Service a bit slow and don't expect a smile but then it's... More

Tracks Raw Bar & Grill is located on the lower level (Long Island RailRoad Level) of Penn Station, New York, NY. The correct address is: 7th Avenue and 34th Street. The bar has to be the longest bar in New York City --- nearly a city block long! The hospitality is great, the drinks are great, and the food is... More

Any time I will be near Penn Station there will be a great chance that I will stop into this bar. I am a fan of fresh raw oysters and Tracks did not disappoint. The oyster selection itself was fantastic and the location is quite unique. The beer choices were excellent and the draft beer was cold and fresh tasting.... More

Been going to Tracks for years now, and have never had a bad meal. Service (by Irish bartenders and wait staff) is always excellent, and the food is wonderful. Great raw bar with an extensive selection of oysters from various regions of North America. I had the best soft shell crabs ever at Tracks, better than I get at the... More

This restaurant claims to be like the Oyster Bar in Penn station. It couldn't be more different. It is a narrow, thin space with a low ceiling and a very long bar. The space is covered in bathroom tile. The food is mediocre at best. The food is breaded, creamed & re-heated fare. The bartenders are alternately conciliatory to the... More

You really have to be looking for this place to find it. We discovered it by doing a Web search for restaurants near Penn Station, to meet out-of-town relatives for a light dinner. Place was pretty empty on a Monday night but would probably get busy after the Knicks game. We sat in the tables at the very back. Nice... More

Talkative locals at the bar. Expensive beer by my midwestern standards. Food was good. Good decor and interesting location.

I never thought I'd choose a restaurant in Penn Station to have raw clams. The location does not inspire confidence as it's not exactly a seaside location. I couldn't be more wrong. I had a great plate of Littleneck clams and Linguine with white clam sauce. Excellent in every way. Fresh and good sized portions serviced in a old school... More

We had a delicious meal in an oasis of quiet in Penn Station. The cod sandwich and sweet potatoes fries were perfect. The young woman whoo served us was very attentive. The ambience was old world train station. The art work delightful.
