Fun times!

I haven't eaten there, but the bar and staff are great! Excellent midtown location, very close to Times Square, but far enough not to have all the touristy crowd (if you're a tourist like me who doesn't like to hang out with other tourists :)) I've seen this place packed, and been there when I was... read more

I ate here on a Friday night. It was in walking distance from the Hilton I was staying in. It was quite busy when I arrived but I managed to get a table. I had a local beer and. Angers, mash and baked beans. This tasted delicious. It was good service, great food and good atmosphere. Recommended.

There must be at least a dozen Irish pubs with a few blocks and after going to several this is certainly one of better ones. The food was good (I had the shepherds pie) and reasonably priced for the area. They have the usual selection of beers for a pub. Service was fine. Though smaller than many of the other... More

When in NYC we usually stay at a hotel in this area, and often have one of our meals at the Old Castle. The food has consistently been delicious (served HOT, which is a pet peeve of mine) and the atmosphere is great. The front dining area is quieter, with the booths in back having the views of sport games... More

We had the BLT and a burger from the $13 pre-fix brunch menu. Service was good and both arrived quickly and were well prepared.

Traditional Irish breakfast. Good Service and this establishment is very clean, with a good location. Nicer that the quick breakfast places that are loud and tight.

The 3 score purely reflects the fact that our food was cold when we got it, and that we had to ask for our coffee and water to be topped up. The staff were. It unpleasant, and certainly do not deserve all bad comments, since they were friendly and got the order correct. When we got coffee it was piping... More

Whenever I want to feel comfortable and just relax this is the place for me. Has the feel of a local bar but it's in the middle of Gotham. I can usually find a place at the bar, but if not there are high tables lining the wall. Bangers and mash are the order of the day here. The drinks... More

Typical New York #street pub - narrow front but goes back a long way. Great service. Food was great - I had the crab cakes. Very handy if you are staying in the Hilton, which is just round the corner.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
