The Wheeltapper celebrates the best of a traditional Irish pub, offering contemporary food and drink in an informal atmosphere. Together with the year-round outdoor Patio, this restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, dinner, or cocktails. As fitting for a pub so close to Grand Central Terminal, the Wheeltapper's design includes authentic railroad artifacts and memorabilia from the turn of the century. Cozy and warm, the Wheeltapper's two bars, front and back, are comprised of quaint nooks for semi-private dining or drinking, and connected by the Carriage, a passage that closely resembles a classic railroad dining car. A fireplace warms up the back bar in cold weather. A door takes you from the back bar out to the Patio, a 2,200 square foot outdoor garden wit seating for 48 people and plenty of room to stand and mingle. This unique space is covered with a retractable awning and heated in winter, allowing it to stay open year-round.

Great food, good location, not the greatest service. This place is connected to the fitzpatrick hotel. Enjoyed a nice brunch here, not the warmest environment in terms of service. Server was quite brute and not the most personable, but hey, the food was great.

We came for a bite to eat after a long day travelling. It was very very busy and noisy. The food was fine. Service was quick but the waiter forgot our nachos and also brought the wrong bottle of wine. Popular with the afterwork crowd.

We dived into here when it started to snow on our trip in New York. Lovely cosy booths and fireplace welcomed us, as well as friendly staff. Lovely pint and we were on our way again.

I would say yes to breakfast and lunch. Probably not the most ideal for dinner.
