Good food

A surprise food find. My other half sought it out for a good USA IPA beer ( goose island on draft) but we also opted to eat whilst there and there is a pretty good selection on the menu from salads through to burgers. Good value and generous portions

A nice pub with plenty of bar space and TVs to watch the games. Good pints on tap and food was delicious.

A lovely little Irish pub with a great atmosphere. Food was excellent, my only issue is that when I went to sit in a booth, I was told we couldn't and had to sit on high bench style tables, no idea why.

Lively, fun, nice and prompt service. I had tequila shots, beer and fish and chips. All lovely. The atmosphere is comfortable and I fit in there better than at the Australian next door.

We visited on a Friday evening and the pub was very busy, most table were reserved. We managed to find a spot at the bar and have a few drinks. The service is efficient and friendly and my wife really enjoyed the cocktail selection.

I've never left a bad review before and I'm not one to complain about food in a restaurant but the food here was very disappointing. Potato skins were soggy and salty, tasted very processed. Nachos chips were stale and the chile was awful. We told our waitress who just looked at us and said "thank you". No apology and didn't... More

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!

Staying in Midtown

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.
