We stayed just up the road from this bar and visited most of the 5 days we were here. We enjoyed the nachos on one occasion and I had the sausage and mash on another, it was delicious. It isn't cheap but being located in Times Square, the prices are fair. The atmosphere is great. The band were playing on... More

Ducking in out of the rain after a theater matinee, we four were pleasantly surprised to find some of the best pub grub and drinks in our experience. Service too was spot on. We shall return.

Had a drink here on the 9th November Friendly service from the staff here. Ordered a whiskey and ginger ale, bacardi and coke and scotch whiskey and coke. The rum and whiskey were fine but the scotch drink tasted incorrect but we were reassured it was the scotch we asked for. Maybe just a mishap but still not a bad... More

My wife and I ate there 11/11/16 before going to a play. Since we both love chicken pot pie, we ordered that, expecting the dish to have only white meat. It had both dark and white with some bone. More particularly, there was a very small amount of chicken in our dishes and the taste was less than good. We... More

We ate here twice during our recent stay in NY. The food was good pub food, and they had a great assortment of beers. The place is usually crowded because of its location. The service was good given the large crowd in the restaurant.

Perfect little place to dive in. It doesn't have Times Square prices which is refreshing, but it's warm and comforting! The steak sandwich is amazing!

The Irish theme abounds, the ambiance is perfect, the wait staff and clientele always seem happy & friendly, and the food is surprisingly good. It is also a beer drinkers heaven. Great job, O'Donoghue's!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
