I have fond memories of my visits to Jimmy Ryan's years ago! Having a party with girlfriends and ordering the “Whole Shebang” platter of appetizers was awesome! We revisited this neighborhood staple yesterday for lunch and was a little disappointed! First, when you walk in, it’s dark, I mean really dark, the lighting and decor. We went to sit in a booth that was “aged”. To say this place needs a spruce up is an understatement! Even their awning outside is tattered and worn. But we are here for the food! Now realize that we are in a Pub Restaurant, so my review recognizes it’s not a fine dining establishment. I loved that they had my harvest ale and they even rimmed it with honey and cinnamon without batting an eye lash, kudos to the bartender! We started with soups, a crock of French onion soup that had me nervous when I first saw the croutons atop instead of bread, but it worked, it was pretty darn good! Now the Soup of the day was chicken vegetable, and even though it was full of fresh chicken and veggies, it had a peculiar taste to it, I believe coming from the peas and green beans in it. It also could have had some rice or pasta to make it better. Onto our entrees! Before I️ bite into this subject I just want to say our server “Eleni” was very sweet and appeasing and did the right thing at the end, more on that later. The hot open faced turkey Sandwich was good with fresh roasted, thinly sliced turkey with a good gravy on the side. The home made mashed potatoes were delicious as well. Unfortunately, my entree was a disaster! I asked for steak quesadillas with the sour cream and salsa on the side. It arrived plated with a full onion slice and tomato slice on the side on a bed of lettuce (not quite sure what they were for. Garnish?) Now I stated my concerns to our server of getting my steak medium and not over done but alas the steak was like fatty liver! Then orangey salsa also was sub par, thin and bland. Eleni did the right thing though and took it off the check. The prices were reasonable, service good but ambiance and food needs improvement. I’ll return in a couple of years and hope they considered my recommendations.

For over 20 years I stepped by at Jimmy Ryan's in the Bronx and took one of my friends. Same nic atmosphere, cozy and classy, superb drinks and awesome burgers. What more do you want?

I have stopped here for lunch a few times. It is a casual place with great hamburgers and salads. The prices are very reasonable. I think this place may be overlooked for a lunch crowd but would highly recommend it. The owners Katie and Joe are the best.

I ate here for dinner. I had not had beef barley soup that good in years! They had some good home cooked comfort foods on their menu - like meat loaf - but a soup and salad were my choice that evening. There were at least 8 big screen TVs spaced around the restaurant and the waitress told us that they viewed college football at this time of year and could run a different game on every screen.

Wow , the worst . Yes, everyone was very nice but they're supposed to be . Four of us had dinner . Food took much longer than it should have. I ordered the Fish and Chips and they had to be those Mrs Pauls fish fillets . The Fries appeared to be hand cut and very tasty . Someone ordered a Ruben and someone order Corned Beef on Rye. It was Deli meat , seriously ? No brisket ? someone ordered Shepard's Pie, "It was okay". A mixed drink was ordered but they didn't have dark Rum. It was just a big fail all around.
If this was just a sports bar I would get the fast food style food but it has a decent dinning room and a small outside Patio .

Great bar, lousy restaurant. Great selection of beer and good looking bar. Menu is fried centric which is what expected in a sports bar. Food we ordered was either overcooked or tasteless. What a shame. Bathroom was disgusting. Good service.
