The Wheeltapper celebrates the best of a traditional Irish pub, offering contemporary food and drink in an informal atmosphere. Together with the year-round outdoor Patio, this restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, dinner, or cocktails.
As fitting for a pub so close to Grand Central Terminal, the Wheeltapper's design includes authentic railroad artifacts and memorabilia from the turn of the century. Cozy and warm, the Wheeltapper's two bars, front and back, are comprised of quaint nooks for semi-private dining or drinking, and connected by the Carriage, a passage that closely resembles a classic railroad dining car.

As the weather was a bit inclement for a couple of evenings we popped in here from he Fitzpatrick Grand Central next door. Very good indeed, good meals and good beers, nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. Well worth a look.
We ate twice in The Wheeltapper, once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both meals were lovely and staff were very friendly. It has a lovely atmosphere with a beer garden out the back. There is a tarpaulin cover for when it rains that they...More
Decent little pub which is attached to the Fitpatrick Hotel, Grand Central. The food was good if not great. Busy spot especially on a Thursday and Friday evening where the after work party group seem to gather. Pretty nice outdoor area as well for those...More
We stayed in the Fitzpatrick Grand Central for a week and we ate almost all of our meals in the Wheeltapper, which is just downstairs. Lovely friendly atmosphere with very helpful staff. Breakfast was fabulous every day! Evening menu doesn't have a great selection but...More
Within a few yards of Grand Central Station, this railway themed bar is an unexpected delight. On entering, there’s a small bar, with a few tables, and a lovely intimate atmosphere. There’s a very friendly welcome and prices are reasonable, especially in happy hour. Where...More
As in the title a nice friendly pub and restaurant, stafff were friendly and polite, the only reason I did not give this a 5 star rating was although what food was on offer was nice there was not enough choice for my liking, please...More
I met friends here for an early dinner on my most recent visit to NYC. I was pleasantly surprised to find lighter fare on the menu in addition to traditional Irish pub favorites. I enjoy a fresh, crisp salad of spring veggies while my friends...More
We didn't eat in the pub so can't comment on the food, but we did visit a few times for a beer as we were staying in the hotel adjacent. In the early evenings in the week it gets very busy, & has a fun...More
This place looks (and feels) beat-up - which is normal for authentic Irish pubs, but then, where's a selection of beer resembling that of Irish pubs? It's just not there, the beer card is lousy, I wonder who put it together: your run-of-the-mill American brews...More
