“Great location, good food”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

My husband and I were staying in the Times Square area and needed a place to have a quick lunch in between sight seeing. We popped into Smith's and had a fast and delicious lunch without having to go far off the beaten path. Very reasonably priced too.

“Good location & food with reasonable prices”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Stopped here for lunch while we were waiting to check in to the Milford which is directly across the road. Service was very good, and though we arrived early (for lunch) the place packed out pretty quickly. Drinks reasonably priced and the burgers are solid!
If you like live music, they have a band on every night at 10.

“Very busy sports bar, good atmosphere.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

They were very short-staffed, so our food took nearly 90mins to arrive! We were warned when we ordered though and they did their best to keep our drinks topped up while we were waiting! Great atmosphere during the game, lively and fun.

“Great staff!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Hard to argue with Smith's logo "You haven't been to New York unless you have been to Smith's". We spent a Sunday night watching football here. Great football menu, with specials on both food and drinks! Food was good old fashioned pub food and the drinks were accompanied by serious banter from the bar staff at Smith's! Mike in particular has alot of New York attitude and having worked with bar staff like him before I loved his edge behind the bar, maybe not to everyone's liking if you are a little on the sensitive side! Nicole was awesome, everything you want from a bar tender! Great memory too when we went back in two nights later! My recommendation would be Sunday night for football and you won't go too far wrong!

“Visting Smith's every time we're in NYC!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Oh, the fun we have at Smith's! We always try to find a hotel in the neighborhood so we can have breakfast in the morning and beer at night. In 2012 we watched and celebrated the Giants Superbowl win. Staff is super relaxed, food is above average bar food.
