“A Great Find & Worth Looking For”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Its true what they say, some of the best things turn up when you least expect it.
We found ourselves between options in the early evening of St.Paddys day down in the financial district when we stumbled across Ryan MaGuires, and weren'r we lucky!!!!

Forget that it's in the Finacial District, this place has a local feel to it, the food was excellent, staff superb and above all the price was outstanding for what we got! 5 x 2-Course meals, a round of drinks and a bottle of red wine - $180 and there was no indictaion of any scrimping being made on the quality of the food.

I can't recommend this enough. If down that way, or at the seaport area sniff this place out

“Back to its best”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We used to go here before it had the fire a few years ago and had not visited since. We had a great meal here and returned a second time for a drink. Probably my favourite brain the financial district

“A Welcome Hideaway”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

A mini heatwave swept Manhattan in March. After alighting from the Staten Island Ferry, we wandered in the Financial District, and somehow lost our bearings. The sun beat down heavily, and we were hot and thirsty. We stumbled into Ryan Maguire's hoping for a quick pint and the chance to gain a sense of direction. The combination of a warm welcome, a great choice of beer and an inviting lunch menu, convinced us to stay for hours. We tried a number of different real ales, as recommended by our bartender, Nick. All were exceptional, as were the various bar snacks on which we grazed. Nick made us feel like a regular, as we chatted away whilst eating and drinking. In discovering Ryan Maguire's, we felt as though we had unearthed a hidden gem in Manhattan's bustling downtown. A bar worth returning to.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

This bar/restaurant is just off the Financial District and a short walk from the Seaport shopping area.

After having popped in for a drink earlier in the week we were impressed enough to return for some food. The service and friendly welcome is top notch. Genuine interest in us and helpful advice was greatfully received in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was fab, I had a pizza and my partner a chargrilled burger. The menu has a wide choice and is well priced.

I don't think we've ever seen a cleaner bar and once again the staff were great.
