Had dinner here after a reasonably flat sightseeing day, and so was looking for something to lift our spirits. Not only was the waitstaff friendly, and inviting for a change, but the food was good value and solid. I had beef stew, and partner got a huge serving of mussels. Only downside was a seriously drunken table, which luckily was... More

Stumbled on this spot and glad we did. The cream of mushroom soup was particularly good. Had a pear, arugula and blue cheese salad which was good but a bit dry. Wine by the glass was pricey. Best was the live music with guitar and violin playing both Irish and American tunes. They were a crowd pleaser.

This is pretty much what you look for in an Irish pub. Good menu, friendly service, regulars at the bar, and Irish music three nights a week.

Drop by the pub before a show. The waiter was extremely friendly. However, the food was just alright. My soup was delicious and the flat bread was tasty but the sauce drizzled on it was just too much and i did not care for the taste. Wish they left that part out. My daughter had burger which was very dry.... More

Four scientists walled into a Bar - what did they say? Ok so this scientist knows she can't tell a joke, so I ordered a beer and pub food like I would in Dublin or London or Shanghai. Anyway this place was quick in delivering our dinners and keeping our glasses filled on a Tuesday night. They even had crunchy... More

My daughter and I were walking through Manhattan shopping! We got hungry and saw a sign for this restaurant. My daughter had the Shepard's pie and she said it rivaled mine :)! I had a delicious French onion soup and a salad. Portions are large and prices are reasonable.

I probably freaked the waitresses out with how much I drank but hey I'm British and it's not my fault they couldn't keep up...😆 All jokes aside me and my daughter frequented this bar when we were there for her 16th birthday and we were welcomed every time including during their live music nights..... highly recommended and a must visit...

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.
