This may be a fun place for a beer, but we stopped in here for lunch and we were pretty disappointed. I had a corned beef on rye and the beef was so tough, I had to take it out of the sandwich and cut it up into pieces with my knife in order to eat it. My friend had... More

Visiting NYC in an usually warm October called for cold beers at lunchtime to go with our lunchtime meal. Burgers, salads and "Bangers and Mash" are always better with a cold beer and friends. Blaggard's Pub fits the bill for a fast and relaxing lunchtime fare. Highly recommended, and get there early before the lunch and dinner crowds!

Popped in couple of times as it was just around the corner from our hotel and was pleasant enough for a drink or too, nothing special just average pub with live sport and lively atmosphere

This looks like a typical mid town, middle of the block mock Irish pub that serves the weekday lunch crowd. That's what it is. They have a generous Happy Hour policy which will netyou a pint of great beer at the perfect temperature for only five bucks. Pretty good deal, and the bathrooms both work. Highly recommended.

It was hot, humid and dirty in the city. All we wanted was a cold beer in air-conditioning. And we found it. And what made it even better was that it was during happy hour. An ice cold Bud Light, Sam Adams or one other beer for $4 - normal size - just what the doctor ordered! Best deal around.

Had a late lunch here. Good food, decent prices, varied menu. Service was a bit slow and the waitress seemed to have other things on her mind, but overall a good experience. Would recommend to anyone and will eat here again.

My (adult) son and I stopped here after an afternoon at museums. The wait service was fairly unattentive and it was hard to get an order in. The food was good enough but nothing to write home about. The beer selection is about what you would expect from a mid-town pub, no real surprises here either.

Restaurant was conviently located next to the hotel I was staying in but we were very disappointed eith the service , food and atmosphere. Wait staff was unpleasant. Menu featured items that sounded good but the salmon I ordered was unimpressive. Bland and under cooked. Side salad was way too cold and dressing too oily. Very long wait for food... More

Went to this pub with a group of 10 to watch the Superbowl, good food, good beer spoilt by very slow service. There were 2-3 staff working out front and they never seemed to be around. The pub wasn't that busy. The staff seemed a bit clueless and several times we had to clear our own table and make orders... More

To start the service was horrible. No hello or welcome just shoved to our seat. The lady then got our drinks orders wrong. The starters were bad and the main course worse. The crab cake was uneatable. The pie was bland and boring. The best part was they put a $17 service charge on. When I challenge this the women... More
