“You'll be stuffed for hours, but talk about it for weeks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Once of NYC's classic places to have lunch. The food is very good but the atmosphere with the hundreds of autographed photos of celebs makes it even more memorable. My kids love the bucket of pickles you get when you sit down.

“Tourist Trap but Great Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Great food, but if $24.00 for a sandwich is insane!
Waitress pushed us to hurry up, kept bringing drink refills and did not mention it was not free refills. Rushed the whole time! Too pricey

“Lives up to the hype”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had a great corned beef sandwich on rye with my daughter. We had to split the sandwich because they are so large. The corned beef melts in your mouth. They give you a bowl of free pickles upon being seated.
The atmosphere is fun and the service quick. Must go if you are in the area.
