Was looking for a place to get bite to eat. Service was lacking. But the food made up for it. Would return again.

Popped in for lunch after getting in to town for business and before doing a little sightseeing at MoMA. World Cup was on and lunch crowd was starting to fill in looking to catch a little soccer. Really enjoyed the Cobb Salad with a couple of Brooklyn Lagers. I'm always looking for a nice pub when I travel. Hit the... More

After having difficulty with service for our group of 15 at several other restaurants in NYC, the folks at Connolly's were very good to us and gave us a very pleasant experience. Not only were they able to seat us all together, they had no trouble with our request for separate checks. All the food came at the same time,... More

Wanted to grab a bite before a Broadway matinee and not spend a fortune. Figured a pub would be perfect and we were not disappointed. Nice selection of beer on tap.. Traditional Irish food as well as other pub fare on the menu. French fries were perfect and so were the sandwiches. Friendliest bartender ever....

I was a bit surprised to pay $8 for a 16oz Blue Moon when my actual meal (bruschetta chicken sandwich) was only $13. That said, the food was tasty and the service was good. I would stop in again if I'm in the area (but will probably stick with soft drinks).

Stopped by here for a drink while exploring NYC. It is close to Time Square, which is where we were staying. This should be rated one of the top bars. We actually were on a tour of "top 10 bars" in NYC and this wasn't on it, BUT IT SHOULD BE!

Staff could not be more friendly - who doesn't love the irish accents. Sitting in the bar at high top tables is a great option for casual dinner. Very comfortable spot.

We stopped at this lovely bar/restaurant after a busy day touring New York! We were greeted at the door by the very welcoming manager! All the staff were friendly and the food was just like a good home cooked Irish dinner. I had the walnut crusted salmon and my husband had roasted rosemary chicken - both were delicious. The carrot... More

I have always visited a different Conolly's Pub when I am in Manhattan. I walked from my hotel about 12 blocks in a Siberian cold to get to it. Cue "Let's Make a Deal" loser music, closed. Wah, wah. No problem, there is one of these around the block from my hotel. I only had to walk 12 blocks back... More

My Wife and I went in for drinks and appetizers. People were very friendly, from the front doorman, bartender and the waiter. Everyone were very engaging, like we had been there numerous times before. We came back a couple times. Oh, we did have the calamari, no rubber bands here, cooked to perfection. Great selection of beer; both on tap... More
