Tried this place on a first visit to New York, loved the place and went back every night we were there. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Drinks are reasonable, with lots of selection. Food was delicious with large portions. Would highly recommend.

This was a great little find. There was live music, cheap alcohol (beers $7, spirits $8) great selection of bar snacks at a good price for the size of the portions ($11). Definitely worth a visit in the evening

Stopped in on a Friday night. Very noisy, especially in the back where we were seated. The sound of loud conversation really bounces off the walls back there. The only reason for the average rating of 3 stars is I thought the drinks were really small, especially for NYC prices. The baked clams were awesome. I wouldn't hesitate to go... More

Visited for after dinner drinks on a Wednesday night. Once the entertainment started, it was very difficult to have a conversation. Music was good though. Got some snacks later on, food was average.

We were staying nearby and went there three times. We were seated quickly or offered a bar seat until a table became vacant. The atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. The shepherd's pie and the Irish stew were excellent. The waiting staff were friendly and quick.

Easily my favourite pub in midtown. Hot wings are excellent, as it the soup. Best time to visit is between 2 and 6. Excellent selection of beer on tap.

This is a Pub like lots of different ones in NY. A regular one. Go orb to watch some games on TV. But not really good for having lunch or dinner if you want to talk.

Here of us enjoyed this Irish pub yesterday. The service was great, the range of beers was broad. Well worth a visit for a bite and a beer.

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.
