We eat here about four to six times a year. The food is very good, burgers are excellent and the service is quick and professional. The only off-note is the 'Caesar Salad' it is just lettuce and croutons with a very light oil and vinegar dressing, not really a Caesar. Because of the salad I am only rating it overall... More

O Henry wrote his famous "The Gift of the Magi" here. Photo of the owner and staff with lots of famous people on the walls. Food is excellent and the waiter did all he could to make sure we were well served. A popular place, it is a bit tight in there with as many tables as they could possibly... More

The food here is very good and the brunch menu is surprisingly inexpensive. They've got some outdoor seating as well and their daily lunch menu is generally cheapish.

This is a great place to visit whether it be for a drink as we did, or for lunch (the food looked excellent) this is said to be the oldest Irish bar in New York City and having visited I guess it's probably true. Bursting with old character charm the place was very busy and the walls are adorned with... More

Handy location. Just north of 14th ST and just East of Union Square. Soups are homemade and excllent. Prices are gentle. My salad was awful however. Bet burgers are good.

I am a fairly frequent visitor to NYC and the 2nd oldest bar in Manhattan is always on my visit list. The walls are covered in celebrity pictures but I come just for the lasagna. It is a little pricey for lunch but being a Scot living in Texas I can honestly say it is the best I've had in... More

Nothing bad to say, so no need to go into detail on what good about it, cuz it's all good. Place for the locals.

Found this gem by accident. LOVE the history - O'Henry booth (and now Johnny Depp apparently hangs out here) LOVE the space - integrity of the historical aspect preserved and very cozy Didn't love the food - only average, though abundant and not overpriced.

Pete's Tavern food is very disappointing. Greasy burgers, tasteless shop-bought coleslaw and rubbery bread. Will not be going back and certainly won't recommend it to friends. I think the only reason it gets customers is because of its name.

I was staying in the area & I thought, based in part on a 4 star rating in TripAdvisor, that Pete's would be a good place to get a hamburger & a beer. Wow, I don't know what other people were thinking when they said the "food was great." Maybe there is another Pete's in NYC. I went there on... More
