“Not bad”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

This bar was a second choice after leaving another that didn't have the brands we wanted. It was a good choice. The clientele is mixed (a good thing) and they have live music. The service is pretty good though a bar back yelled at my friend for leaving the bathroom door open while she washed her hands. My friend enjoyed her pinot noir, but my drink was watered down. As a result, decided not to order another drink. The wings were good. Overall, I liked the place and really have no complaints. My only suggestion is that they pour better drinks.

“Love Smith's!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Great post-theater bar in Hell's Kitchen. Very friendly service. Great beer selection. And love their wings and nachos for a late night snack. Live bands on Saturday nights. Great TVs for Olympics viewing! Don't miss Smith's!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I Went to NYC for an International Beauty Show in March 2011. This place happened to be right across the street from where we were staying. My friend and I had a blast here during our second afternoon after the IBS show! The other three people on our trip wanted to nap and we didn't want to venture too far from the Milford. We ended up going a second time before we left as well! Great Long Island Ice Teas!

“Great airy bar with great looking food and cold beer!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled across this bar and went in for a quick drink. It was 35 degrees outside so we went in for a quick beer and it was such a great little bar we stayed for 3 beers and people watched through the open windows. Fantastic staff and great prices for a bar just off times square. Food looked amazing but we didn't eat there.

“Nice Place for Bar Food”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a good location for a quick bite to eat in Hell's Kitchen. It is near to heart of everything going on in NYC. The burgers were good and I tried the horseradish burger which was different and good. Our waiter was slow and did not appear to be very concerned that he was not giving the best service. If he had been better the place may have earned higher ratings. We visited later at night and it definitely converted to the bar crowd rather than a restaurant focus.
