    Busy place with after work crowd at bar. We were about 15 minutes late for our 6 pm reservation but no worries as the tables for dining were not extremely busy. Friendly and very fast service. Food was pretty basic but well prepared/presented. Would certainly go again.

    Perfect spot for after theater dining. Located next door to one theater and across the street from two others, this is a comfortable, reasonably price spot. Kick back with a good beer or martini. Sandwiches, salads and burgers are terrific. And soup is wonderful

    We try to avoid eating in Times Square at all costs - most places are Tourist traps with mediocre food at inflated prices, but sometimes you find yourself having to. On this trip we had tickets for a 7pm show across the street and decided to try to get dinner before. Made a 5pm reservation and they took us immediately. When you walk in, you don't even feel like you are in Times Square. It is a lovely Irish Pub environment with high ceilings, which helps keep the noise in check. The servers were great, they checked on us just enough. The food was very good and rather inexpensive, especially for the location. I would recommend this place if you need a quick (or leisurely) bite or as a place to take a break and have some drinks.

    Pouring rain, so needed someplace close to the theater. Have been here before, food is always good and service very helpful and cheerful. Kind of pricey (Lunch for 2, consisting of 2 entrees, 2 desserts, 2 coffees, was $78 including tip), but I guess you're paying for location.

    I remember O'Lunney's original location. More ambiance, better food. When they moved the restaurant lost its "feel", became VERY noisy. Still and all we went for the food. Our outing Sat. night was less than successful. Most of the food was absolutely tasteless. The fish n'chips used to be excellent. Now you could practically DRINK the fish it was so overcooked. We won't be returning. Too many strikes and OUT!

    I booked a group of 10 for 5:30pm and O'Lunney's was available. Their website and menu including Traditional Irish favorites was a draw as I was dining with my high school students on a class trip from Virginia. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. They called to confirm a few hours before were arrived and were flexible to arrange for others from my larger group to dine together. The food was great, timely and affordable. We will definitely be back on our next trip!

    We were visiting NY from Boston (kudos to the pin-stripers for spanking the sox at Fenway earlier in the week...many games left; thankfully) - and we were looking for a place to go near our hotel. O'Lunney's fit the bill and i was able to secure a reservation via Open Table quickly. Service was prompt and friendly, and our food was good. I'm a sucker for Guinness and Shepard's Pie and that's what I ordered and enjoyed. The manager came out to thank us for being there and his courtesy was noted and appreciated. Although we didn't spend time at the bar, it looks like it is a good spot for a pint, watching a game, and/or just hanging with friends.

    I went to O'Lunney's with a group of friends for an early dinner after a theater matinee. We were seated quickly in a large booth in the back of the pub and our drink order was taken soon after we sat down. The pub was a bit on the dark side, a combination of low lighting and dark wood but that made it seem more intimate and friendly. Me and a friend each chose the reuben and it was melt in your mouth magnificent. Our server was prompt and attentive. O'Lunney's allowed substitutions for french fries for a small fee and one of my friends took advantage and ordered a salad instead. I recommend O'Lunney's for a casual meal among friends.

    Found this place on Open Table and was able to get a reservation for a Saturday Night for dinner at 6:00 after a matinee. Seating was very tight, with our table at times needing to be slid to the left or right to accomodate people arriving or leaving adjacent to you. The crowd however was very friendly, and it did make us uncomfortable. We just laughed it off with the people seated around us. We had fish and chips and shepards pie. The servings were adequate - not too big, not too small and all the waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Nothing we had overly special, but the food was quick and hot, the service was good and the crowd and staff friendly. I would return to this restaurant if in Times Square again.

    My sister and I went here for dinner were both pleasantly surprised. the service was super friendly, food was delicious and done to perfection. We both had the filet mignon over a bed of fresh spinach with garlic & butter, The vegetables were fresh not frozen or from a can, the spinach was also fresh & the garlic was not out of a jar. the Filet Mignon was done to perfections and the portions were generous. For desert we shared the Crème Brule which was to die for. The prices were great, a lot better then most other restaurants in NYC. Very reasonable. We will be going back to O'Looney's Pub and highly recommend it to all. Thank you for a great dining experience. Loved the waitress & her Irish accent topped the night.

    O'Lunney's is our new favorite Irish pub in midtown. Convenient to Broadway for dinner or a beer before the show, the staff was friendly, the place was filled with other happy patrons and the food was great. I'm not sure I would order pasta there, but the bangers and mash was great and everything in the menu was appetizing.

    We stopped in before seeing Billy Crystal's final performance of 700 Sundays. Nice atmosphere and decent food overall. Even though burger came out a bit over cooked--I ordered "medium well" and got "well-done", it was still edible and I didn't complain. Nice neighborhood place if you're looking for a decent lunch.

    Energetic Irish pub. Good service, nice people. Food was good, not great, good. Close to Times Square so convenient if you're in the city to visit the Tourist spots (Times Square, Rockefeller Center, etc.) Probably better as lunch spot than dinner in my opinion. Worth a try if you're in the area.
