A lot of stars have visited and they have photos on the wall. The inside is quirky but with a warm feel. Food was good and plentiful. Service was a little slow but too bad. I would go back again

So much history in Irving Place; stayed at the Inn at Irving Place for the history and this tavern had a similar background, if only the buildings could talk to you. This is always crowded, more fun than newer style bars - good pub or bar food.

A wonderful example of history meeting culture, cuisine and beer. The burgers and the parmigiana were excellent and the service was exemplary.

Oh what a great bar. Friendly staff. Good menu and reasonably priced. Long time favorite of many regulars. Olds and younger crowd alike flock to this historical watering hole tucked behind the Flat Iron district only a few blocks east of Union Square. Go for a drink and stay for dinner. I always enjoy it.

One of New York's favorite historic taverns is still popular and fun! Opened at the end of the Civil War. This where O'Henry wrote Gift of the Magi, (ask the staff to show you the exact booth). It was a speakeasy during Prohibition. It's disguise was a florist shop! It still popular. The bar is a hot spot for Manhattan's... More

This place is always mobbed! Go anytime and it's crowded. The wait at the bar is long but is always a great place to have a good time. The vibe is always turned up and you won't have a bad time. Put your name down for a table for dinner and the wait staff does not disappoint and the kitchen... More

When in NY we always visit the vebnerable and ancient Pete's Tavern. It is a short walk to our pied a terre at The National Arts Club.. Recently we dropped in after theatre for a late meal.

If you are visiting New York for the first time or the 100th time, Pete's Tavern should be on your list. It's a historical landmark in the tony Gramercy Park neighborhood yet it is affordable and casual. You can get a prime rib dinner for under $25 including salad and sides but you may be eating it next to Angelina... More
