After traveling for over 2 days to finally visit friends in New York and with recommendations from a number of people we decide to come here. The urge for a cocktail and a few starters on a river sounded beautiful until we were rudely met by two of the most obnoxious and disrespectful staff I have ever come across. I... More

The atmosphere here is priceless. The overall mood is upbeat. Customers, Staff everyone. Beautiful views. Lively. It fits well for all ages. The food is tasty and does not rip a hole in your pocket ! No one is in a rush. Wish I lived closer so I could come more often....

We stopped for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon and were greeted by a nearly full house already. Self-serve pier was mostly full, so we went to the full-serve ship for a table, and were glad we did. Very good lobster roll, plus a good burger and some fancy mixed drinks aided the view of the NYC skyline and... More

The Frying Pan are two boats located on Pier 66. There is a little bit of nosh, a lot of drink, and a whole lotta atmosphere. Perfect place to feel like you are escaping the city for a few hours...even if you are only on the water. The walk to get there is a bit of a pain, but 100%... More

The place is full of energy! The view, especially the sunset, is one of those special ones to remember NY.The food could be better, but it is not bad.

This is a brilliant venue for toasting the dusk and watching the sun set over a drink—that is, if you can find a good spot from which to watch it. The food is distinctly average but this locale is still worth a visit for the experience and the beer.

The path way to this restaurant is a old rail track on a dock, for all you newbies Frying pan restaurant is on a old ship which tied to the... More

Drinks were good. Boat rocks and breeze comes off the ocean. Noisy and busy. Fun place to stop in for one drink.

We were so excited about the Frying Pan. Scenic views. A great burger and chicken sandwich. Nice bar selection, Yes a little pricey but you right on the water! We will be back.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
