Good burgers, pub atmosphere

We ate lunch here one day and I had the best Cobb salad ever. Waitress was very slow, but the food was yummy. No frills, but good pub food for good prices. Went there again at night and listened to a Bruce Sprinsteen cover band and they were AMAZING!

We only used it as a bar but it is a good one with live music. Busy every night so great atmosphere and staff are exceptionally friendly. Good choice of beers too.

Went on a busy Saturday night. Service was good, food was average, we had their burger special. Good location in Times Square. Had a live band and they were pretty good! Good place to start a night out!

This is a bar, food and drinks are OK, service is average for a NY bar. Bands are the best part, will definitely go back but only for the night time experience, not lunch or dinner again.

We ate breakfast here instead of at the hotel and it was generous and tasty (we had the granola parfait).

Tried this place since it was so close to the hotel we were staying at but wished we had just kept walking by. The drinks were ok however the food was really bad. Cheeseburger lacked flavor and grilled pork chops were overly dry. Did not enjoy this meal and will not return.

Food was good but service very slow in the evening. Breakfast next morning was very wholesome. Although the staff told us the password for their wi-fi, it never connected!

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.
