Diner Reviews
  • "We haven't been in NYC since we moved to Florida over Ten years ago and boy do we miss a good Irish Pub and this fit the bill perfectly! We each ordered something from their Irish favorites box on the menu and each of us loved what we had. I had the chicken pot pie and honestly I would have licked the plate if I thought it wouldn't have embarrassed my family :) We were with some friends, one being gluten free and she had one of their specials which was a kale veggie burger on a gluten free roll and she raved about it!!"

  • "What a spectacular treat for my birthday! The restaurant provided a warm and comfortable environment, with good food for good prices. It was a treat to be able to eat and see the World Cup at the same time - not to mention the single block between it and the Majestic Theater where my party was headed following the lunch. I hope to return to Connoly's again soon, hungry for more."

  • "We went for an early dinner before seeing a show and it was perfect! Service was quick, it wasn't that busy yet and the food was delicious! My husband had the rib eye steak and I had a walnut crusted salmon. Both were really good size portions and cooked perfectly. We were seated immediately and our service was great. "

  • "Connolly's hits all the right notes for ambiance and drink . . . it's as close as one can get to an authentic Dublin pub in mid-town, although (thankfully) a lot less noisy. The only sour note is the food. The "Bangers & Mash", which is the reason I eat in pubs in the first place, was dreadful. The sausages were terribly overcooked and dry. I almost had to ask for a steak knife to cut them, whereas a self-respecting pub should serve them plump and moist. The potatoes and gravy were decent, but . . . egad . . . the dish was served with sautéed onions, not mashed peas! My table mates, who had other dishes, seemed reasonably satisfied with their food."

  • "We wanted a casual, moderately priced meal in the theatre district-Connolly's was recommended by a friend. While the downstairs was crowded and noisy, we were seated upstairs which was quieter. Service was friendly and accomodating. Menu is your basic pub food-burgers, salads, sandwiches and some specials. Everything was fresh, portions were large and all enjoyed their meal. In addition, we are able to sit for almost 90 minutes without interruption or annoyed looks. All in all, a very positive dining experience. "

  • "We started out visit to Times Square at Connelly's for lunch .. It is a casual, comfortable place ..menu has a good variety of "pub food"., salads are delicious.. My chicken bruschetta was a little dry but okay.. Great location near the theaters, staff was friendly and attentive..we will definitely consider going there again.."

  • "My family (self, wife, three teen children) ate here for dinner prior to a Broadway show. All of the meals were delicious and were a superb value. It's rare to find a midtown restaurant with such high quality and affordability. The genuine Irish wait staff gave the restaurant a fun international atmosphere and there was a wide variety of patrons. This restaurant is able to blend both family-friendly quiet dining and yet also offers a vibrant bar scene. I would definitely go back."

  • "The food was very good and on time, and Connolly's is only three blocks from the Sondheim Theatre, where after dining at Connolly's we saw "Beautiful: The Carole King Story." Both made for a very pleasant and memorable evening. Thanks!"

  • "Very good experience. Located close to Times Square. We was hungry and tired. We reserved the table while we were on the tour bus and waled straight to our table an hour later. Very friendly staff. The food was delicious. Excellent steaks cooked to order. Our friends all had the onion soup which they said was fantastic. Reasonably priced for the location. "

  • "I've certainly been to better pubs for food and drink. Was very very disappointed in the food was definitely not to our liking at all. Never finished it. Had to return my drink for items in it and a dirty glass. Even after that the drinks were not up to par. Would not return again"

  • "Did some research on this great find before going into NYC - reviews were dead-on. Service was great - fast, attentive (but not overwhelming). We had arrived almost 45 minutes early for our reservation...and they took us right away! Portions were good-sized but were very good - well worth the price. Irish stew was very good, bangers and mash were even better. Cheesecake was pretty good (only weaker spot). Definitely would come back."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We usually eat on the same street as the theater and we're happy when it is 45th. Menu is substantial and we're almost drooling as we try to make up our minds. The staff is very welcoming and it's nice to be remembered. We'll be back after the holidays."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Burgers Salads and Beer in a comfortable atmosphere with a buzz. I would say this is dependable stop in a touristy area, that feels like a local spot. Menu is wider but did not experience. I would go back."

  • "Close to Broadway theaters, I have come here for lunch before a matinee or a drink after a show. This time I did both, enjoying a drink that was new to me--The Nutty Irishman with Baileys Irish Cream and Frangelico. Connolly's had a fair number of international beers available as well as Irish drafts. I would rate the food as better than average pub food. The atmosphere was fun. It was the weekend of the NCAA basketball championship and some Connecticut Husky fans livened the vibe. I was also impressed with the manager/maitre d ? who was welcoming and charming. I passed the pub the next day and he remembered me from the day before and asked if I would be visiting Connolly's again. I said not that day but next time I'm in NYC."

  • "This was a Friday night, so thankfully, we had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was on the slow side, and the noise level was high, but the food was decent, the prices were reasonable, and we got out in time for our play. Overall a good choice for someone going to a theater nearby."

  • "I've eaten the Chinese chicken salad at different Connolly's for lunch many times - I love it!!! I can't speak for the rest of the food but it is a very nice, friendly pub and I will continue to visit it!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "We were greated with a big smile and lots of personality! We got there early but we were seated right away. We were offered to have a drink at the bar first or they could show us right to our table. Lots of food choices...wanted something fairly light because we were heading to a show immediately after eating. My husband ordered chicken parmesean. You just don't order chicken parm in an Irish pub...better to go with the shepard's pie or Irish beef stew! It didn't have much flavor. But the service was great and everyone was extremely pleasant. Very large selection of beers on tap."

  • "I always eat at Connolly's, either alone or with a friend, when I go to theater on 45th Street. The salads are terrific and everything is presented beautifully. I'm sure we'll be back. Even alone, at a table, I always feel comfortable."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "First visit no reservations, but was able to sit at the bar. Food & Service was great. Second visit had reservations and was taken right away. Food & Service was great again. Prices reasonable."

  • "As a long-time Open Table patron, I was looking forward to enjoying lunch at Connolly's Pub during a recent New York visit. Our meal was generally good, appropriate for pub fare in the city. Management, however, claimed to be unfamiliar with Open Table's frequent user program. While our host recognized our reservation, our server advised she would not accept the Open Table Dining Cheque. She explained that she presented the Cheque to her manager and was told Connolly's would not accept this form of payment. I spoke with the manager, who said she had never seen such a form of payment before, and in the absence of her general manager she was not willing to allow its use."

  • "We were looking for a pre-theater restaurant. American, casual, inexpensive. My son wanted burgers. This place is lively. We had a great table upstairs by the windows. The burgers were very good, but we waited 45 minutes for them. The table next to us had appetizers and there dinner before we were served. May have been a fluke. Manager felt badly and brought us a round of drinks. Nice, but we had to rush to make the 8:00 curtain. It still was a nice dinner."

  • "I dined here after a Sunday matinee and it was lovely. Quiet atmosphere, bar or upstairs seating, and an attentive staff that did not rush you out the door. I came early for a reservation and still had no trouble. The gentleman at the door gave me a choice of bar seating or upstairs dining. The food arrived quickly and I sat with my party for an after dinner coffee. Perhaps because it was Sunday the restaurant was not too crowded. It's located within an easy walk in the theater district"

  • "This is quite a good place for good regular pub-type food. It is certainly lively and sometimes a bit noisy if it is quiet you are looking for. There are multiple bars and some good music in some of them. Prices are reasonable and the portions hearty."
