We went in October, so The Junction had some cool Halloween decorations up. I wasn't super impressed with their happy hour options, which is usually the best part about going to a bar in the Murray Hill area. There were only three beer options, bud...More

A great New York bar. Guys behind the counter are great and look after you real good. Love the wings and burgers. Location is good for locals like me and tourists taking trains or just looking around.

Well, this sports bar reeked of Starsky and Hutch. Clean, and very welcoming, I was expecting Huggy Bear to turn up! The chicken wings in buffalo wing sauce, fries and salad were absolutely scrumptious. Our Irish waitress Rosie was just gorgeous. Had to hug her...More

Small local bar opposite Grand central station with larger dining area to the rear. Friendly to locals & tourists. Have great value meal deals most days we had the pizza and the burger deals. Couldn't fault either; good portions, very fairly priced for the area.
