My self and my family (one 11 year old, one 17 Year old) stumbled across this Pub one evening and we never looked back. The food here was the best home like dinner I had while staying in New York and we ate in the boat house resturant for Xmas day, they had nothing on the food served here. Cocktails... More

Clean pub with friendly staff. Again, a limited selection of craft beer. Good for watching your local sports fav.

We stopped late evening for drinks and a nosh. Bartender was friendly and made a mean martini!! Can't really speak to food as we had standard bar fare. The place was busy and lively but not loud. Felt like a locals place.

While just walking looking for a place to eat. We walked by here and it looked crowded but a few tables were open so we went in. We were seated quickly, and the service was very good. My wife and I split a cheeseburger and a bowl of steak and mushroom soup. Both were very good. The soup was fantastic!

Serving raw meat. To a child. We did not select this place. First we went to The Irish Pub and they had no seating available. In a quick bait and switch scheme, a phone call was made to their "alternate restaurant around the corner" which was this place. They had a table. However the menu was not the same. Nor... More

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

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.
