We have eaten and drank at this bar on several occasions, we love the feel of the place and the great selection of beers and food. This place really makes you feel the atmosphere of NYC. I would recommend a visit to anyone who is visiting the Big Apple ! 🍺🍺🍗🍟🍔

We ate here for brunch during the week. The atmosphere was very "New York" and trendy. Food was good. Service wasn't painfully slow, but it was quick either.

We didn't plan to eat here, but it started raining heavily - so we dived in the nearest place. It's decent enough bar food (without being great) and portion sizes are very generous. Our server was really nice, and it's a pretty cool bar. Done a job.

Nice bar/ pub style. Sports on TV's easy atmosphere. Easy to sit at the bar and have a nice cold beer on a hot day. Great service.

Don't waste your time here. The food was boring and plain. Was looking for good bar food and left disappointed. We ordered the nachos & steak sandwich. Only pro was our bartender Candace was very nice and friendly.

We ate here for our first meal in New York City. It was pub food, but it was good. Other people have said that it's pricey, and it is, but it's New York and very near the theatre district. It wasn't out of line for what I was expecting to pay. The waitress was friendly and she handled herself very... 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.
