Ate an early dinner before a play, and we were served promptly by friendly staff. We were in a mood for seafood and the seafood pasta was good, although I would have preferred less calamari and more shrimp and salmon. The shrimp with rice pilaf was even better. Salad was large and fresh.

For NYC, the food was reasonably priced. It served delicious Irish fare, and the corned beef sandwiches are great. Oh yes, a Guiness Draft went very well with my meal. I recommend it.

Take the time to walk a block away from the madness of Times square. Just what I was looking for - beer, food, enough atmosphere to be pleasant but not suffocating. Could do with a couple of healthier options (my colleague was disappointed I think), but who wants healthy when the Mac and cheese tastes that good.....

I've been to this bar twice now and have come to realize it's where the loud, over the top, I want many voice to be heard, people go after work in Times Square.
If you like lots of people shouting this is the bar for you.

Best Shephard's Pie I have ever eaten! Close to all Broadway shows! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Hubby's dinner wasn't as wonderful (Bangers 'n Mash). Hit or miss I guess.
