Transit: The restaurant is across the street from Pennsylvania Station.
Description: The Statler Grill harkens back to the golden age of the big band era, and is named after Ellsworth Statler, who ran the Hotel Pennsylvania from 1919 to 1954, when musicians such as Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie and Glenn Miller played at the Cafe Rouge, the hotel's main dining room. The Statler serves classic New York steakhouse prime steaks and chops as well as daily delivered fresh seafood, while the bar and lounge serve a delicious grill menu. Located just steps away from Pennsylvania Station and Madison Square Garden, it is the perfect place to have a breakfast meeting, a meal before an event at the Garden, or just to relax with friends and co-workers during happy hour before you hop on the train. It is all about the food and service says owner Joseph Lavelle. "I want my guests to enjoy themselves, have a great meal and return again and again".

Visited this restaurant during recent stay in the city and have to say it's the worst establishment that I've ever visited. You are packed in like sardines and never in my life have I ever had a waiter that was as rude and obnoxious as they come. Me and my dinner guest sat down and immediately left before the "nasty...

You can't beat the location if you are headed to an event at MSG. The bar areas is small but lively in the front of the house. The restaurant is basic steakhouse, simple furnishings, big steaks and burgers with food and drinks flying out of the bar/kitchen to get everyone fed before the game. Service was just OK, as they...

Not worth the money and there are lots of places way better than this dump. Food was lousy. Drinks are way overpriced and they add a 18 percent tip ... for lousy service ????

The food was bad. There was something wrong with each dish and overall the quality was just poor. The service was OK and the (manager?) did ask how the food was when clearing the table (none of us finished our food) and we did tell him what was wrong - he did apologise. Why didnt we just send it back?... More

Good sized portions and good quality meal. Service was pretty good as well and we were accommodated quickly when we popped in with no reservations. Price point was consistent with other restaurants of similar style. Enjoyed my meal here, recommended.
