Cute comfortable bar. Service polite. Drinks (well) better than wine by the glass. Nice atmosphere. Casual, comfortable, relaxed. Good place to spend some time.

We enjoyed our time from very first second. Drinks were great and strong enough, dishes absolutely delicious. And of course location! Couldn't be better. Close to everything you need, but while you're inside there is not much left to need. Worth recommending to everyone who wants to relax from New York crowd for a while.

Visited the Pig n Whistle on a recent trip to NYC. Excellent service and a good atmosphere. Watched baseball and football followed by good music videos and just enjoyed the buzz. Would recommend to all.

Just stopped by for a drink. Expensive even for New York. Beers $6 and they don't need to be. Weak mixed drinks $8 + just not worth it. They atmosphere is very nice and we had a god time there but costly. If you have money to burn I would say it is a good spot to hang out. The... More

A great place to stop and have a break in NYC. Good selection of beers. But it's the staff that make this place. Greg will be very attentive and have you in stitches with his yarns. Relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

We've been to a lot of pubs and grills. We stopped for a quick snack and a beer on a Saturday afternoon. I've got to say, it was very expensive, even compared to other pubs and bars in the same general area. The chips and guacamole were only so-so. It seemed that the server was trying to steer us toward... More

My husband and I went for a relaxing drink. There was a singer playing a guitar, which was very noisy. The waitress was walking up and down all the time and you could not relax and have your drink.

July 9th we visited on a whim for lunch/brunch. All the Mimosas you can drink in 90 min. YUM! We sat upstairs on the balcony and it was lovely. Ordered pulled pork sliders and croque madame which came with such amazing fries we ordered another side order. Staff was great. Friendly, prompt but not over solicited. She stayed on top... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch. The service was very friendly and the food was great! However it did take some serious amount of time to get the burger which is the only downside.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
