Quite Satisfactory

My wife and I ate here a couple of times for lunch during our short break in NYC. You can't fault the service, food or Guinness for that matter. A great find amongst the plethora of Irish bars in this City!!

I am having a good breakfast of eggs Florentine with home fries which is well prepared. Also I am enjoying a mimosa at this hour of the morning. It is said to serve all three meals of the day, and they are correct. It has a good location.

This Irish/English pub has a nice sports bar/Irish pub atmosphere, and good food. The prices aren't crazy, and the hamburger tasted as if they'd just ground the meat. I was just wandering around, and decided to try it. I'll be back the next time I'm in New York City.

We wanted a new place for b/f and stopped here on a whim. Traditional pub layout with flat screens over the bar. Nice b/f menu covers all the usual suspects. Best part for us was the excellent omelets and eggs Florentine. No runny whites, no hard muffin, great tasting spinach. No rush to give up the table either. Surprised by... More

Stopped in while waiting for our ride (which was delayed, such a shame) and could not have been more pleasantly surprised. Bartender (Anthony?) was great with the conversation. I would not call it a "sports bar" but certainly enough TV's so we could watch the Patriots / Jets game. Prices of drinks are not Manhatten again more neighborhood, which was... More

Good menu, I ordered the salmon and my hubby ordered the Chicken Alfredo. Salmon was good but the pasta was definitely lacking chicken. Mentioned that to the waitress to no avail. Don't think we'll be back.

We stopped here after the theatre for a bite. It was happy hour and their happy hour menu is a good deal! We had the french fries (AMAZINGLY GOOD!) and the nachos (HUGE PLATE FOR $5!). The beer selection was good and my mixed drink was strong. They were busy, but our waitress was attentive and very nice. Love this... More

Only visited this bar for breakfast, what can I say best breakfast we had by far.... and cheapest. Service very good and food was quick, friendly staff who always asked if everything was OK and was there anything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 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.
