This was my fourth visit to this restaurant and I was a little disappointed with the service. There was a crowd of people inside and several waiting to get in. The food that is served is very good and they have a few things that you would consider to be Irish style which is one of the reasons I keep... More

We visited New York 21st-28th November and found this place, which was located close to our hotel, it's a great place so friendly and the waitresses we're all very helpful and nothing was ever too much for them. This place ended up as the place we came every night for dinner and a couple of drinks after a full day... More

Ate here at lunch time in November. We got a table easily as it was about 3pm but it was still busy at bar. We ordered a burger and an appetiser chilli con carne. The portions are huge. The appetiser chilli must be a sharing appetiser because it was huge. The burger and chilli were very tasty and good quality.... More

I enjoy the food and service at Old Castle. When I need to choose a place to eat, drink and talk with friends I usually think of this place first. There's nothing fancy about it, they have screens to view sports, seats at the bar, chairs and tables surrounding it, booths towards the back and a second floor they open... More

This is a typical New York Irish pub with screens around the bar showing various sports. The menu is varied, the food is decent and the portions are good.

Was greeted with a friendly smile and a hearty welcome was told that there was a line. We all know breakfast time in New York is a Crazy time of day. We did not have... More

We stayed in New York a couple of days and had breakfast and lunch here. The breakfast was very good. The french toast with bananas and peanut butter drizzle was very good, but the bread very thin. They should use Texas toast bread. Otherwise, good eggs, bacon, coffee, Excellent service. Lunch was also very good, good beer selection, nice desserts,... More

I haven't been here since New Years 2011. I was looking for 'the big Irishman' but was informed he was out of town. This place does the thinnest pizza ever and it tastes incredible. The staff were excellent and the beers were aplenty. The next time I'm back in NYC, I'll be popping in here again.

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.
