Looking for a good place on a busy crowded in town weekend. Although the location is a bit odd for a decent place we stopped. Everything was pretty good, like an upscale pub/tavern type menu. Fairly price comparatively for the area. Open clean atmosphere.

We visited before an event at the Bryce Jordan Center and called for reservations a couple weeks ahead of time, but upon arrival we found the restaurant wasn't busy enough to have needed a reservation. We enjoyed the wide variety of foods and drinks available...More

Everything I have ever sampled here is awesome. They do authentic German food, but don't miss the buffalo calamari!

I'm not a big fan of the location, I do miss when it was Shnitzels in Bellefonte, but the food makes up for it. The Jaegerschnitzel was my fave (when I was still eating pork) and is also a fave of everyone in my family....More

Enjoyed the sandwiches, nice to sit by a warm fire (even if it is gas) on a cold day, great service, very attentive, large portions. Try the fish taco wrap with the potato salad.

Likening the era when pockets of immigrants settled in the boroughs of New York City and continued their old world traditions of camaraderie with wonderful food and warm hospitality. Here, at Olde New York, we hope to recreate that comfortable place for you to meet with your friends and family for traditional old world cuisine, fat deli sandwiches, savory salads and an array of refreshing beverages and splendid libations. So come on out to the old neighborhood and reacquaint yourself with the good times, good food and pleasantries of bygone years. Make Olde New York your neighborhood place.
