This place has a 4.5 start out of 5 so we decided to give it a try, I must say, I think our standards are too high or something and we need to bring them down because i wouldn't give their food more than 2 starts, people rave about their fish and chips and burgers and that's what we ordered,...

Went to this little Irish pub the first night we arrived in NY. The waitress was friendly...but her shift finished before we finished our meal and left us in the trusty hands of the well versed and knowledgeable bartender. We ordered your regular pub food...it was good, but the atmosphere definitely made the place. I would recommend this place if... More

This restaurant and bar was near my hotel and I went there this afternoon for lunch. Erica was behind the bar and was amazingly friendly, fun to talk to, and her service was top notch. I felt just as welcome as the locals who came in and sat around me, and there were quite a few of them, so obviously... More

My wife and I stopped in at the Bantry Bay Publick House last night for dinner. Wonderful Irish Pub atmosphere. Ice dinning area, and very nice bar with wide screen TV' S showing the Mets in action. I had the Brooklyn larger on tap and it was ice cold and delicious. I also tried the Irish beer on tap, Smithwicks... More

A small and very comfortable venue with a great atmosphere. Erica is great and makes you feel right at home. The menu items offer a range of ethnic choices which, surprisingly, were very, very good! We honestly didn't know what to think when we were directed to their location for a bite to eat. Just goes to show that you... More

We checked in late and needed some food. Headed down Greenpoint Ave to Bantry's and were underwhelmed. We expected it to be a neighborhood bar and it was convenient to the hotel. We drank some brews, ate fish and chips and watched sports on tv. It was dark, dirty and not very busy on a Friday night. Service was quick,... More

We stayed at a hotel nearby, so we stopped by for a bite. We had fish and chips which were godo size portions we barely finished and very tasty. The price was very good for NY as well. The atmosphere is very laid back, so even though we came from Canada we felt at home there. There were quite a... More

I got the fish and chips and my coworker got the pork sandwich. Both where very good. We also got the French quarter fries for an appetizer, they were good bit too spicy, good flavors. Decent selection of draft beers.

Simple, comfortable neighborhood pub with excellent food. We were three generations. Grandparents, parents and 9-year old granddaughter had a lovely evening.
