We visited the Grafton to watch a college football and it was a good spot to eat pub food and watch a game. The fries and wings are good and the waitress was pretty attentive. The only downside to our visit is that the staff...More

We met here for a family meal and had a reservation area. We were well looked after with great service and food. The Guinness was particularly good and well served.

This is a very fun bar and pub to watch soccer. The atmosphere can get a little rowdy- but in a fun way.

As close to a good old fashioned English pub in New York as it gets! Good range of beers and spirits too. The only thing I would say is that they have a terrible selection of sambucca and the cocktails are disgusting. The other half...More

Stopped in to watch the New Zealand All Blacks play the Irish. A great atmosphere, with a good drink collection. It was super full but the layout allows for everyone being able to view the screens. I'd go back

Although this place is much too clean to be deemed an authentic Irish pub, perhaps that is a good thing. There are so many screens, that no matter where you sit, you are guaranteed a view of the ongoing match. The bar staff here are...More
