Diner Reviews
  • "The food was ehhh , I did not love anything that I ate there. Not good spot for groups better for 2 people, but bar food is not great. Probably a better spot just to grab a drink."

  • "i was very very excited about this place, as i am a huge Marc Murphy fan. THe service was really slow, but perhaps thats part of the whole "surfing" laid back experience. i think that is OK, but at times it seems like we were forgotten about and just sitting there. THe food was a fun menu, but probably not worth the price listed on the menu. I know they can do that because of namesake, reputation and location but im being honest about value."

  • "A very refreshing, more casual type of seafood restaurant for NYC. I came here for dinner and loved the oysters, mussels, fish tacos and ditch dogs. I'll definitely be back again - for lunch and dinner. Not sure I would have a craving to eat this kinda stuff for Brunch but wouldn't turn down an invite for that :)"

  • "Never had an experience here I didn't like-- until this week. Dinner on a Tuesday- it was surprisingly crowded. We waited about 10 minutes before the hostess came to greet us. Once seated, we waited another 10 minutes for water and then our waitress (who was also serving the remainder of the restaurant) told us she'd be back. 10-15 minutes goes by and she returns, we order our drinks and meal - 2 diet cokes, 1 laguinitas and 3 chicken burgers. No Laguinitas. Soda arrives- tastes like smoked wood. We ask if we could have a fresh glass- waitress says, with a snarky tone "Are you sure it tastes bad? Anyway, I won't refill it, it will taste the same". Fine. Burgers come out they're tasty as always. Waited 30 minutes for the check."

  • "Dinner was excellent! Fired pickles, burgers and ditch dogs. Good wine, and a great environment to sit with friends and have fun. Great NYC experience!"

  • "The food and the decor were pleasant enough, but nothing special."

  • "Very nice place but no wines by the glass is a drag...."

  • "Solid cocktails and appetizers. Mains (fish tacos + fish & chips) were pedestrian. Service was truly uneven -- asked by two different waiters within three minutes of sitting down if we were ready to order drinks, followed by an immediate question of if we were ready to order our meals. Meanwhile, the restaurant was steadily clearing out, thus no immediate reason to rush our dining experience. At the end of the meal, it took over twenty minutes to get our check. Overall, it was a decent experience, but am not in a rush to return."

  • "Really good food, lots of shareable items. Really good service, super nice staff. Busy, but not too crowded for a late Sunday brunch. I recommend the reviled eggs with fried oysters."

  • "We went to dinner here before a film at the Film Forum the other night, and had a good meal, and some items were excellent. My husband had the seafood Cobb salad, and enjoyed it, and I enjoyed the roasted oysters. The service was attentive, and even though it's small, and the tables are close together, we had no trouble hearing one another."

  • "Our service was interrupted by a surprise health inspection. Of course, my party understood that this could not be controlled, but the restaurant's repose to the interruption was subpar -- they offered no explanation, did not apologize for our delay in food (about one hour) or offer us anything as a thank you for our patience. The food was excellent as usual, but it took us so long to get it that one of my friend's had to leave to catch her train."

  • "One of Marc Murphy's little gems. I love everything on the menu especially the fried pickles and the lobster roll."

  • "Service was horrific-- waiters think they work in some surf shop in southern California. They don't even make cappuccino--the foundation of any sort of quality brunch. They do not even have pancakes—I felt like I was in some sort of alternate universe. Save your money and time. DITCH Ditch Plains. It quiet there, but after I dined I realized why nobody ever goes—which why it was so quiet."

  • "We chose this spot for a bachelorette party. I am so glad we made this decision. The prices were reasonable and the food was amazing. At the end of the night, the waitress (who was lovely the whole evening) gave us smore's for the bride-to-be. It was such a great night."

  • "A friend told me about this place and we made reservations for brunch on Saturday before a show on Broadway. We arrived at 11:30 and our table was ready. It was pleasantly quiet. Our server was precious and very attentive. I had the french toast, which was brilliant and a mimosa. When the bill arrived, we noticed that our drinks were not included on the tab. Being the honest southern women that we are:), we told our server promptly who was very thankful and treated us to dessert of smores! I would highly recommend Ditch Plains and plan to go back in November!"
