Avoid it, Fries were cold, when I questioned it, the waitress Laura F said she would tell the chef. Great, didnt come back to say anything, the burgers were greasy, so much so it dripped from the bun. Cost for 1 burger $13.29. Trip Bacon Burger $17.49, Pepsi $3.29, they added 18% tip which was not negotiable total cost $49.28.... More

This was our first meal in NYC and not too bad! Burgers cooked to order and very quickly prepared. Conveniently located next to our hotel and service was pretty good. Recommend this!

We ended up here last minute because we arrived to the city late and it was right near our hotel and we were tired, but I felt that for a chain restaurant with standard food, the prices were way overpriced! I get that it's right in Times Square in NYC but the second night we found another pub/brewery that had... More

Came here full of optimism on Sat 15th Nov. Food massively full of salt, reminded me of Harvester UK. We had 2 Starters, 2 Mains & 2 Drinks for $81 including the tip. Amazed to see that a glass of Budweiser cost $7.50. If you've got time to look there are plenty of gems around the side streets instead.

Right next door to the Hilton on 42nd St. so convenient for breakfast if you are staying there. Was seated promptly. I had Steak, Eggs, Potatoes, Fruit, and it was all very good. Service was very good as well. I sit next to a window and watched the tons of people walking to work. Not a fancy place but a... More
