My husband, son and I ate there last week. It should have been our first clue when we walked in---the bar was nearly empty (I think one person) and no one was eating. This was during a week that New York City was packed with tourists. The bartender (a female) had absolutely no personality and looked like she rather be... More

If you ever get the chance you have to come to this bar just off 5th avenue. We turned up just as the final of euro 2016 kicked off. With over a dozen TV sets in the pub viewing the game was not an issue. Very friendly and attentive staff. A dozen draft beers on offer all the American favourites.... More

Just had drinks one evening, barman was great...... I think! He was very loud and in your face, but we found him funny. Suppose he could be taken the wrong way.

Shocking food, everything deep fat fried, and so fried they fried the flavour out of it! Told the waitress it was bad, politely, she turned her back and then continued cleaning a table. Apologised later begrudgingly.

**Food Bathrooms and Service*** I stopped in here just after arriving in New York City before touring around the city. They had just opened as I walked in. The Pub seemed fairly spacious, at least with most of the seats still up. The menu had a fair selection of food. The two menu choices today were the steak salad and... More

Place picked just by accident, but fortunate one :) Very good service, food and beer. We went there at early afternoon, so not crowd as well.

This pub might be fun if you just wanted to drink although my husband said his beer was flat ... But the food we ordered wasn't good at all. Not sure how you can get potato skins wrong, but I sent them back. They were thick potato slices instead of skins, not hot and the cheese seemed more like cheese... More

A surprise food find. My other half sought it out for a good USA IPA beer ( goose island on draft) but we also opted to eat whilst there and there is a pretty good selection on the menu from salads through to burgers. Good value and generous portions

A nice pub with plenty of bar space and TVs to watch the games. Good pints on tap and food was delicious.

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.
