We visited on 17th January. Three girls up for a night out on our whistle stop tour of Manhattan. We struck gold in finding this bar. We were greeted by a lovely Irish barman called Graham who kept us laughing all night. We recommend this bar whole heartedly. We'll be back one day.

This is a great bar just off Times Square to go for a few beers and see a bit of live entertainment, the prices are very good for its location and the bar tenders are friendly and efficient.

Four of us stopped in for dinner on a Sunday night, and we were so glad we did! We were seated immediately and our server was there in an instant to take drink orders. Our server was knowledgeable about the numerous beverage options, as well as the food choices. Two of us ordered crab cakes, which were plump and flavorful... More

Stopped in for dinner before a show on a weekend. The restaurant was very crowded and cramped, but we got a table right away. They have a reasonable draft beer selection, but expected more Irish options from and Irish pub. We ordered Shepherds Pie and Fish/Chips. Both were good, but not great versions of the dishes. Service was very attentive.

It was good. We had no problem. Service was good, food was good. We didn't order anything special, ruben, salad, fish and chips.....not huge portions but adequate...you don't want leftovers when traveling. Drinks were pricey but i guess typical for NY. It was ok.

The staff are great, very friendly and the night I was there 2 staff did a great job of serving a busy bar. A blonde girl and thi Irish man from Guam. The music and atmosphere were very good. The Guinness wasn't bad either.

Visited after a Evening cruise and really needed warming up and this was the perfect pub ... there was Live Music and the Irish staff were welcoming, friendly and the menu was very good. Would highly recommend for a lovely dining experience.

We had supper here the other night and we were blown away by the quality of the food. I had the crab cakes and my mum had the chicken pot pie and both were amazing. We didn't expect the food at a pub to be that good. It's also affordable, and close to Times Square! Prompt service and wifi as... More

This is a typical Irish style pub, complete with an extensive selection of draught beers! Our bartenders were Sue and Graham and they were both very welcoming to what I'm sure they just knew were tourists passing through. We liked it so much, we made it our last stop on our way out of town yesterday! Stop in. It's located... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
