Description: The Wheeltapper celebrates the best of a traditional Irish pub, offering contemporary food and drink in an informal atmosphere. Together with the year-round outdoor Patio, this restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, dinner, or cocktails. As fitting for a pub so close to Grand Central Terminal, the Wheeltapper's design includes authentic railroad artifacts and memorabilia from the turn of the century. Cozy and warm, the Wheeltapper's two bars, front and back, are comprised of quaint nooks for semi-private dining or drinking, and connected by the Carriage, a passage that closely resembles a classic railroad dining car. A fireplace warms up the back bar in cold weather. A door takes you from the back bar out to the Patio, a 2,200 square foot outdoor garden wit seating for 48 people and plenty of room to stand and mingle. This unique space is covered with a retractable awning and heated in winter, allowing it to stay open year-round.

Felt the food was overpriced for what it was and the menu very limited. Charged different prices for the same drinks every time. There may have been an offer on but if so this was not clear!

Good pub food, Irish fare and cold beer. Great place to gather with friends for a pint and conversation.

Definitely a nice area outside. Big heaters, tv and comfy couch seating as well as tables. The beer was $8 and the first one purchased was flat. Asked for a different brand with some life to it and the server was like...okay. Looked like he couldn't understand what was wrong with flat beer. The next were fine. The wine is $10 per glass...which is fine in NYC, but the glasses are from the 70's. Small. Buy some new wine glasses! We had the potato skins which was fine. We stopped in last year, and left after our first drink as the bar woman was not nice at all---seemed to be doing us a favor. All in all, will stop in again when the weather is nice to sit out and hope for a nice experience.
