Spotted the place by accident as it was near our hotel. The four of us all had a bite to eat, potato skins, BLT chips on the side, steak sandwich and a side of chips. All well cooked well served and a few beers as well. The price was very reasonable and cheaper than we had paid over the last... More

The service was terrible. The bartender was rude and made it very clear that she was not happy about serving us or anyone else in the bar. The food was just ok and very overpriced. The Guiness pours left much to be desired. Lazy and rude service. I visited the restaurant on Sunday, November 13th. I will not be returning.

There was a special cocktail night on which had the noise level high with added music at a ear piercing high. Restaurant seating just a few steps from bar area so not segregated to block noise. We we recommended this location when we visited NYC and only we hadn't checked out any other locations prior to arriving would have left.... More

Popped in as this was close to the office - had a great lunch. We went in around 1230 and were seated immediately. Had the skins and wings for starters, then we both had sandwiches for our main. All of it was served promptly and was hot, tasty and plentiful. Service was attentive, without being overly so, and all done... More

Came in for a Bills game, 35 bucks all you can drink beer and all you can eat wings! Wings were spectacular, if youre a Bills fan which I am, the atmosphere was top notch

We called in here for a quick meal but spent some time early one evening. It is noisy at that time, the bar is popular with after-work drinkers but the restaurant is separate although you can still hear the noise. We ate Shepherds Pie and Chicken Paillard, both delicious as was the bottle of Woodwork Pinot Noir that we shared.... More

Great pub, great food, great staff. Great daytime boozer. Get out-of the humidity in the new York summertime, and looks warming for the winter

The bar had 10-12 people sitting at it, not busy at all, I stood there for 5-6 mins whilst the bar maid served a customer and she dragged herself from one part of the bar to the other not caring less... I walked out and go t a bottle of beer from a corner shop and saved myself some money

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
