A word from Pig n Whistle on 36th
Welcome to Pig n' Whistle! The original Pig n' Whistle was located in the Old Townhouse of President Taft on West 48th street, in the heart of New York's Rockefeller Center. The friendly people and atmosphere quickly became the meeting place for New York's literary and banking elite. The new "Pig and Whistle" on West 36th Street, in the heart of the theater district, has the look and the feel of the historic townhouse where it all began. From the oak bar and paneling, copper bar back, private party rooms and bay window overlooking 36th street, "Pig and Whistle" continues to follow the same detail and style as that gracious home in Rockefeller Center. Please stop by. We look forward making your stay a very pleasant one.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I am definitely a repeat customer. I first went to The Pig 'n Whistle about 3 years ago and the food is great. The portions are decent and I definitely recommend the bread pudding. Enjoy :D"

  • "for quite a few years, we frequented the pig n whistle on west 47th st. and were disappointed to see it closed some time ago. we decided to give the 36th st. location a try before an MSG event and reserved on open table. mixed reviews from us for this visit....when we were being seated near the front door (that was open on a chilly, rainy night), i requested another table. there were multiple empty tables further back in the restaurant, and the hostess replied "there are no other tables, they are all reserved, too". made no sense to me as they remained empty for some time after our sitting at our table. anyway, our waitress was very good, the burgers were tasty. "

  • "The food is great, but the upstairs were closed and downstairs were way too noisy, music blasted so hard that we could nit hear each other across the small table."

  • "My husband and I go here for dinner and drinks prior to attending concerts at MSG. Service is good, pub grub food is top notch and the drinks are great. The price is right too. Their Chicken Pot Pie is delicious but their Chili tastes like it is from a can :("

  • "Reservation recommended if you intend to dine (this particular day), and if it's a "cold" one (like this past 3/17)... Secure a table away from the front door... preferably upstairs. Can't go wrong if you like corned beef & cabbage... *watch out for the "hot" mustard Wash it down w/ a Guinness... you'll be fine!"

  • "This was my third time at the Pig N Whistle and I enjoyed myself! Their sandwiches and salads are yummy and reasonably priced. It's fun before a game or event at MSG."

  • "Great place for a burger and a beer before the Justin Timberlake concert - they even played his music which got us pumped for the night!"

  • "Pig and Whistle is that cozy little pub set in the middle of Manhattan. The food was simple yet outstanding. We were a party of three and each had something different. The pastami was lean and delicious with crisp, not oily fries. The mac and cheese was one of the best ever tasted with a rich cheese sauce and mushrooms. Since the person ordering was not a meat eater, the waitress immediately volunteered that it could be made without bacon which was a good indication that it is made fresh and not reheated. The veggie burger was flavorful and rich with garden vegetables. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. It was a perfect casual meal."

  • "Pig & Whistle was fine for a fast burger and beer before a Knicks game. Only problem was the constant opening of the door allowed freezing air into the bar area."

  • "I met some girlfriends here for Sunday Brunch. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Loved the wonderful food & excellent service. We were unprepared about how noisy it was. It was absolutely GREAT though, to get our table exactly for the time we booked!!! It is really a hot spot, very crowded with very friendly LOUD people at the bar which goes the whole length of first floor."

  • "This was my second time at the Pig n Whistle and it was delicious! Very casual, great bar atmosphere, but the food is still good. The turkey club and corned beef sandwich is great as is the shrimp club and the cobb salad. I definitely recommend for a quick bite to eat!"
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "Nothing fancy, nothing special about it. Service was just ok, food was nothing you can't find anywhere else in NYC."

  • "The food was excellent (recommend the bangers & mash)... but the service truly made the experience."

  • "I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this wasn't your average midtown sports bar. The decor was upscale and had a nice mellow vibe to it. The food was really great - for starters our group had crab cakes, spinach and artichoke dip, ceab and asiago dip, cocnut shrimp - all were very good! The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable."

  • "Very ordinary and empty on a Sunday afternoon. Not a keeper"

  • "A little too noisy, but overall hearty food, fast service and very convenient location."
    Dined on 3/14/2013
  • "Bar with a pretty decent menu. Convenient location right by Penn Station. Went on a Tuesday night - It was lively but not so loud that I had to shout across the table. The spinach artichoke dip was PHENOMENAL - probably the best I've ever had. My burger was good, cooked to my liking. Seating was a little cramped. It was pretty good overall."
    Dined on 3/12/2013
  • "Horrible service. In the middle of our meal, our waitress went on break. We had to go to the bar to refill our own drinks and take napkins and utensils from other tables. Mid-Town Manhattan on a Saturday night, certainly expected better. Now I know why the place was empty."
    Dined on 2/23/2013
  • "For anyone attending an event at Madison Square Garden, Pig and Whistle is a convenient and excellent restaurant choice. Three of us enjoyed the filet mignon special. The steak was served medium, as requested. It came with perfectly cooked green beans and a delicious twice baked potato. My son substituted the potato for french fries without any problem. My daughter enjoyed the crab cake. We had a great experience and I would certainly dine there again."
    Dined on 2/16/2013
  • "I went here because it was two blocks from my hotel. The restaurant was super busy with an after work crowd, so it was really noisy. Expected that from a bar, though, at the 6:15 pm time. The service was outstanding, very attentive, and quick. The food was amazing. I had tomato soup and crab cakes, which were probably the best crab cakes I have ever tasted. That was a very nice surprise. I would go back there to eat those again."

  • "When I arrived and mentioned my reservation, the two hostesses stared at me blankly. They obviously had no idea what I was talking about. I did not pursue it - clearly there was no point - the word "reservation" meant nothing, so I let that go by. And, truth be told, ultimately, we did not stay. There was a football playoff game, and the crowd was lively, but I didn't realize one of the members of the party was slightly hard of hearing, so we had to find a quieter location. Nevertheless, most of us will be back again sometime- it's a pretty place, and the drink menu is outstanding."
    Dined on 1/13/2013
  • "Had a nice dinner. Nice place. We had the potato leek soup. Very good. We also had the fish and chips. Small portion, but it was very good. Ordered the chicken panini. Very big sandwich. Very tasty too. Lastly we had the chicken pot pie. Was told it was excellent. Had good service too."
    Dined on 12/17/2012
  • "We went on a weeknight at 7:30 and it wasn't at all what we were expecting. It's supposed to be a pub, right? Well, the music was electronic/dance music that was so loud we were yelling at each other over dinner... imagine "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?" at the top of our lungs. I could understand if it were 10:30, but to not be able to understand our waitress or each other was frustrating. The food was decent bar food, and the service was decent too... on par with what you would expect from a pub, but nothing outstanding. Overall, I probably will not be back. If they turned the music level from "deafening" to "loud", I would consider it."
    Dined on 12/13/2012
  • "Great burger, and cobb salad for lunch. I would call it upscale bar food."
    Dined on 10/4/2012

  • "Was here on st patrick's day and what a scene. Festive!!!! Service was unbelievable. Waitresses were awesome. Shepherds pie was great but the cornbeef was over cooked and dry. Beer was awesome too. Again, loved the service."
    Dined on 3/17/2012
  • "Very few tables - most placed against a wall upstairs and/or too close to bar. One cannot hear their own conversation. I would not call the noise level - energetic, I would call it loud."
