While walking around near our hotel, we were checking the Menu's outside all the restaurants and came across Scallywags! It really peeked our interest on the food and the decor. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent as well as the service.

I was here last week. The food was awful - I got a burger which was very overdone and my friend got a BLT which was dry and tasteless. The Irish girl behind the bar was rude to the waitressing staff which put me off the place, it was kinda awkward as there were very little people in the place.... More

Place is a dump. Worked here for 2 days and never went back (passed training and had a weeks worth of shifts lined up). The basement had flies flying around, broken glass on the floor and some food is prepped down here, food lying around in the heat too. The 2 managers, sarah and Karen were awful, treated all staff...

I liked this place a lot and could spend a ton of time here. It is what you what in an Irish Pub- good food, good beer selection, solid whisky options and John behind the bar.

The staff all had Irish accents and were super friendly. Their happy hour has fantastic prices and they have live music every night (I think).

I visited Scallywags a number of times whilst in NY on business. The staff are all very friendly with excellent food and great beer. I had the house burger with bacon and cheese and it was very, very good. The Guinness is excellent. If you are in the area and want to eat somewhere welcoming, with good food and a... More

Good food! Good drink's! Super nice staff. Very quiet in January. We had the french onion soup , it was one of the best we ever had. Then we had chicken slider's very good. Great place to go if you are staying near Hell's Kitchen.

We called in during happy hour, it's safe to say we were very happy. We had a sharing platter and Nacho's and it was a massive amount of food, which was really nice. We also had the mystery beer, which was also a good pint. The staff are really friendly and happy to have a chat. We called in again... More

This place has it all if you are looking for an Irish pub setting. They also have a great deal on brunch where you can get bottomless drinks for just $15. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the city.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
