“5 Dollar Drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

$5 dollar beers, house drinks, wine! Can't argue with that awesome deal. We stopped here on a whim after walking the Highline. The bartender, Sean was awesome. Food was awesome, our group ended up getting the chipotle guiness steak with creamed potatoes (AMAZING), vegetarian spring rolls, burger, side of ranch fries. EVERYTHING was cooked perfect and we will definitely be back!

“Excellent place for apps and drinks after work!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

My husband and I work in Times Square and got off work early one night - what a miracle! We were looking for a non-tourist place to grab a few drinks before going home uptown, and we happened upon Jake's Saloon (just a few blocks from us, at 10th Ave and 57th St). I was a little leery of the B rating from the health dept but neither of us wanted to walk anymore. We ordered wine, beer, hot wings, and "patatas braves". Everything was delicious! The hot wings were VERY hot, which is how we like them, and the fried potatoes were PERFECT - crispy on the outside and practically creamy on the inside, with a spicy dipping sauce. We got out of there for $35 with one drink each, which is what you can expect that close to Times Square. We'll go back, if we ever get a night off together again.

“Eh to bleh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Went to the 23rd Street location. Food quality was below average. Taste and texture of the salad was awful with a sour/non-fresh feel to it. The croutons were stale. Burger was less than mediocre although tasted fine. Fries were great. The Brownie Ice Cream Sundae had a low quality texture and taste as well. Overall the food was disappointing. Sourcing higher quality ingredients would do wonders. Fresher salad greens would be a good start. To wrap up the night, a higher quality ice cream and brownie would have done the trick. I would not go back unless it was strictly for drinks.

“Great Irish Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Jake's Saloon Irish hospitality is warm and inviting and the food, drinks and company are fun. While a local haunt for those who work in the area, I have brought friends and colleagues from near and abroad to the restaurant and they have all felt most welcome.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

This was a bit of a risk for us, as we hadn't seen or heard any reviews about this place - but it was close to our hotel and we were extremely hungry. Score one for Jake's Saloon - it was GREAT! They were extremely friendly and they catered to our daughter (4) and even brought her ice cream on the house (score one for them - happy child ='s happy parents) and our waiter was very friendly. The spice they put on their fries is spicy, but DELICIOUS and the food overall was very good quality.
