Great place

Great little bar! Food was decent, service quick! Staff were friendly! Got a 80's retro feel to it! Worth a visit or two!

I wrote an amazing review of this place last year, and then they underwent owner/management changes. I'm not super impressed with the changes. The bartenders are still lovely and friendly, but prices have gone up, food quality has gone down

Great sports bae, in the centre of Manhattan, very close to times square, pity there is no English football though, the sliders are a treat and very inexpensive, i think the bar has closed for alterations at the moment.

We stopped in here for a drink to check out the end of the PGA Championship. They have a great selection of beers on tap and other liquor as well.

We chose this restaurant because my friend's last name is Smith. We ended up getting a great table, right at the front by the open window, so we could watch the crowds while we ate. I had one of the best turkey burgers ever! It was surprisingly reasonably priced, given the location. One of my favourite meals in NYC!

Live music, craft beer, burgers, sport games on television. What else you need when you are going out in Manhattan for a drink or a snack?

Good food. Fair prices. Good location and some open air seating along the street. And good service. Best thing we can say is that we would go back. What else would you like to know?

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.
