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".

good steak, great value

I visited this restaurant several times and always had a good meal with good service. I ordered the same each time, fried calamari, tomato and mozzarella, T-bone for two with house sides (mashed potatoes and creamed spinach). The steak is always tender and cooked just right. The appetizers are... read more

Great pregame meal! The steak was amazing! The service was top notch! I felt like the groupon was a great value. How can you beat apps, steak, wine, coffee, and dessert?! If you're going to MSG this place is a great option!

Our waiter was wonderful took the time to explain the menu and what would be considered additional charge and what was inclusive with the Groupon menu. We decided to... More

Good location between 7th and 7th Ave at Midtown.We came with a groupon certificate and were served very well: Good table, quick and friendly service and good food. They are very experienced to deal with the groupon coupons and have a special menu for that. We liked the music there: A good selection of 1960s and 1970s pop songs- we... More

I came here for my birthday dinner in January 2015. My boyfriend had found this restaurant offering a Groupon ($100) and with the location in Midtown Manhattan and seeing all of the positive reviews it had received, decided this would be a nice option for us to try for the occasion. In short, the food was good but the service... More

Went last night with groupon, service was great and the porterhouse for 2 was incredible. Yes you do get another $40 added at end for tax and tip on the original value but a porterhouse for 2, sides, appetizers, bottle of wine and dessert coffee with good service and atmosphere for 140 in NYC - cant be beat. Will definitely... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
