Myself and my wife were staying in a hotel just off Times Square in April and we came across this Irish Bar and decided to venture in for a pint. We were met by Ronan behind the bar and he served us some of the finest Guinness that I have tasted in New York. We also ate some finger food... More

When I visited NYC, this place was #1 on my list of things to do because I'm a huge HIMYM fan. The pictures of the cast are cool to see. The food was decent. They have HIMYM inspired drinks which was cool as well. The problem I had was with the service. Being in NYC the place was obviously very... More

Would not have known it was an Irish pub unless I had already read it. Country music, inattentive staff. Food was fine, but pretty standard bar fare. Not a bad place, but probably will not go back.

Great way to start the day with a hearty authentic full Irish breakfast and a pot of tea! We were happy to see that they served breakfast starting at 8am and we were just steps away at the NY Hilton We will come back for the afternoon happy hour next time, Very good staff!

McGee's in New York City is a real taste of old Ireland. They offer a wide variety of excellent Irish whiskeys and the food is very good. The bartenders are what make it special. Both times I have been the man behind the bar has been from the motherland (Ireland for you that aren't fortunate enough to be Irish). They... More

Even though "How I Met Your Mother" Pub was inspired by this one, going there is just not worth the time or the money. The food is b-a-d, coktails are only ok and the waitress included the amount of the tip she tought was right without asking as (20%, to be exsact. This amount of tip is mendatory for groups... More

Except for some photos on the walls there is really nothing that reminds or HIMYM, it looks like any other pub/bar. It is a nice place to hang out but absolutely overprized, the food - most of us had a McGees burger - was really not tasting good (you are better off at any food cart). Service was polite but...

The staff is friendly and we had fun as we are HIMYM fans. The food was also good but I think a bit pricey for what it is. Good location, not too far from Times Square.

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.
