No, it's not a bowling alley in Times Square. It's the 25-year-old Keith McNally restaurant that's way more fun than Balthazar.

Ate at Lucky Strike before a show at Performing Garage. Service was excellent and the food was even better. Would highly recommend.

Lucky Strike feels like your most comfortable outfit ever. Easy to slip into and comfortable for the entire time you have it on. The service was attentive and friendly, the food served efficiently and all was terrific. Could not have been more enjoyable.

This was such a disappointment. Our food was terrible. The sauce on the eggs looked so fake and disgusting. The turkey burger was so dry and tasteless I can't believe this is a McNally restaurant. The server was. Nice and friendly. Other than that I would never go back.

I hadn't been to the Lucky Strike in over 20 years. My baby cousin recently moved to the city and I wanted to take her to lunch so I immediately remembered this spot and figured she'd like it because I enjoyed it so long ago. The food was deelish, their assortment of beer is great. The atmosphere is casual and not stuffy at all. We had great service, our waitress was very knowledgeable and super sweet. I'm glad I went back even though it took a long time, I was happy with everything like I was over 20 years ago.

Food and service were terrific - we had an early reservation and restaurant was relatively quiet. The noise level slowly rose as the crowds gathered! It was a fun spot and we would go back again!

Best restaurant we ate at the entire time in NYC. Staff is super friendly. Must get the warm apple crumble. And the mint lemonade cocktail. Highly recommend. Will be visiting every time we come into town.

The Lucky Strike has an interesting atmosphere. I've been going here for 20 years. It's on my must visit list just about every time we go to NYC. This trip was Saturday brunch. The menu has a variety of unique selections. Everything I've ever eaten there was well prepared and tasty. The service is quick, efficient, and friendly. Great place to eat.

I am a long time fan and recommend it often. I love the atmosphere and vibe and the staff is always sweet and upbeat. I really wish they had some vegan options which I as a vegan feel is a big miss.

This looks like a quiet bistro, but it sounds like a sports bar on superbowl Sunday. I don't know if it's the acoustics or the clientele, but I couldn't hear myself think. Come if you don't really want to talk to your dinner partner. Service and food were good, if you don't mind yelling to place an order.

Nice place for a burger and a beer - or more, like a steak, if you like. It can get loud, so not the place to go for a quiet conversation. But if you're looking for good food and a place with energy, Lucky Strike is a good pick.

Lucky Strike used to be one of our local favorites but hadn't been for a while. We spent much of the time wondering why we hadn't been for so long. Great burgers (English muffin for a bun), great fries and fantastic cocktails make for a casual night out for my wife and I. Also buzzy but not too loud make for a fun "night out" ambience but you can still hear yourself talk. Saturday night crowd was heavy on families, some local who we recognized from the neighborhood, others looked more like tourists at the end of a busy Soho shopping jaunt. It won't be so long before we go back.

Totally charming experience. The restaurant looked so pretty and twinkly and perfect for the night before Christmas Eve. Was surprised by how easy to was to get a table for 5. Great menu. Could come back many times to try new things. The French onion soup was a huge hit with the whole family. Our waiter was friendly and fun and casual. We loved it all.

We had a great time. The food was slow... but the server could not have been nicer and more apologetic. Handled it perfectly. And honestly we were enjoying the scene, the music and the conversation so much that it didn't matter. All good... totally go again.

Poor, overpriced food in a loud and uninteresting setting (despite being advertised as a great place for holiday decorations--there were a couple of difficult to spot garlands). My burger was dry and nigh flavorless. My fiancée's mac n cheese was fine, but nothing special--certainly not worth the price. Definitely would not recommend.

This was the best meal I had in Manhattan in 5 days of being there! I wish I had found it sooner in my trip because it was very close to our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn). As most NYC restaurants, it was very cramped and crowded, but that did not hurt our experience!
