This is a great restaurant in a convenient location. Very friendly waitresses, cold draft beer, and good food. We enjoy that it is a quite place to have a nice dinner. Service is quick. I had the sea bass and it was excellent! One of my regular places when in NYC on business. Would recommend.

The bar service and waitresses were excellent. Very clean. The building has many original features, although there was plenty of tv screens with... More

Homemade pizza great . Good value for money and plenty of tables kids welcome . Large bar if you prefer to go for a drink before your meal . I think they sell snacks also at the bar.

We ate at Brendan's a few times during our stay, as it was near our hotel, and we didn't always want to go far for dinner after a long days' sightseeing!. The food was good and reasonably priced, and staff very pleasant and efficient.

Brendan's Bar & Grill is attached to the Comfort Inn Manhattan, New York. Upon registering at the hotel, we were told that Brendan's Bar & Grill offers a free cheesecake with the purchase of a meal. We tried to call in an order so that we could have the meal ready when we arrived at the Bar & Grill. We... More

We popped in for a cocktail about 10.30pm , place was quite empty but good for a nightcap . Very ornate building ,but seems a to lack a little atmosphere when is so empty due to the size of the bar area . Will go back again

We probably would not have discovered Brendans but for the fact that it is attached to our hotel, so we are thankful for that. This is the perfect spot for a drink and a light - but very good meal. The place has genuine atmosphere! It's miles from an ultra modern bar with shiny features and uncomfortable seating, The decor... More
