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

Worth a visit but gets very busy considering the size and layout. Therefore dinning can be uncomfortable depending where you are seated. Food good especially meat and chops.

recommended to us because of its proximity to Orpheum Theater. My daughter had an issue (unrelated to the restaurant or the food). The staff was incredible and helped in every way possible. Food was great and, as indicated, the staff extraordinary. Would definitely recommend Pete's

Petes would be okay for one beer. It plays off of its old charm. It looks old and smells like an old pub.The food is okay at best. Nothing special. The waitress was the best part of Petes. Efficient and very nice.

Only a quick visit as Petes was busy and we had already eaten, but there was a great atmosphere good selection of beers and spirits. Petes has a very tasty menu at reasonable prices.

Wonderful visit. Wait staff made us feel at home. Entrees are well prepared and presented. Desserts are to die for.
