Super varied menu. We had pasta and pizza, with a couple of cocktails. Great friendly service, lovely environment. Worth seeking out - you won't be disappointed.

Went here a couple of times as opposite our hotel. Good clean friendly bar but at $11 a pint you need deep pockets to get drunk!!

Beware if you want to watch sports! Charged $20 each at the door of the upstairs bar before being seated to watch Irish Rugby Six Nations. We watched the staff member take the money and put it in her handbag! After 1/2 time she left taking the notice off the door and admission was then free! Left foul taste in... More

Didn't eat but visited a few times for drinks. Good atmosphere and service but the irish theme is a bit tenuous...but I suppose it did serve Guinness! ! Can't say anything bad. ..try it and make your own mind up.

We stopped here for lunch because it was across from our hotel. Had burgers, beers and the French Onion soup. It was the best onion soup I have ever had. Prices were reasonable and the service was prompt and efficient. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quick bite off the beaten trail in busy midtown.

Every time we visit New York city, I see this restaurant and I have wanted to eat here. The ambience is wonderful and it truly is a Irish pub with wonderful food. The service was fast and the waitress was very attentive. I would come here alone for the music. (60's) I had bought a gift certificate through Restaurant.com and... More

Went there to have one beer and as the price was 7.50 I said "make it to nine" and gave 20 dollar bill. After I got nine dollars back, I decided not to complain but instead write this review. If they really believe that someone would give 3.50 tip for 7.50 beer, they are... Well, I will have my next... More

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.
