I'm in NYC about eight times annually. I hit something new almost every trip unless short of time, then I find O'Brien's. Great shephards pie. Great chicken pot pie. Great Smithwick's Red Ale. Important note: this place is not too loud. That's a nice change....More

A grumpy landlord gives this eatery and pub the authentic charm of Ireland. Vaguely suspicious of us as we walked in, the owner gradually warmed. We only ordered chicken wings and they were very good, if just microwaved!

The Shepard’s pie was a minuscule portion about the size of a baby bowl. When I informed the waiter she was very ignorant and when I told her I was unhappy she didn’t seem to care and told me that was the size they are...More

Ate with my kids before a show. We’re local. It was SUPER pricey, for tiny portions with mediocre at best flavor. The shepherds pie (if you can call it that) was a gross mush and the onion soup was also not great. Was annoyed we...More

Small pub in a chain of Irish pubs. Nice window table, staff not overly friendly and slow service when trying to pay. Nice salad and brisket sandwich, reasonably priced. Nice drink selection. Did the job.

We had fab meal on our first day. Tasty wrap which was full of tuna. Friendly staff with prompt service. The meal was good value and a good atmosphere.

We were there on the 4th of July night and there was no entertainment. It was a very good pub, beers was cold and the food was excellent. Service was also good, but that could have been the lack of customers. I think New... More
