The food was fantastic! The bar servers were warm, friendly, and new how to mix a great drink! The wait staff was a little slow-but the food was worth the wait. The value was well worth it too.

This place was virtually right across the street from our hotel. I remembered reading good reviews here on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try on our last night in town. There is a small bar area up front and we decided to sit at a small table there right near the window. It is kind of... More

Ate there 3 times on recent NYC stay at hotel across the street. Large sandwiches, great fries, salads, wine - all generous portions and real sweet staff. Big TV's for sports and cool interior. Large bar.

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.

Across the road from hotel, so very handy to pop into. We had a bar meal, which was reasonably priced. The food arrived promptly, was hot and tasty. Also ate in the restaurant, which was very good. 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
