Empire Steakhouse - 237 West 54 Street off of Broadway
Food was good and reasonably priced. The server was attentive without hovering. Food came quickly and was delicious.
Nice pub/sports bar with lively atmosphere. Again, a little loud for us old farts but still very enjoyable. Very meaty and tasty chicken pot pie and my bride enjoyed a salmon dish.
Went back to watch football playoffs a few days later and enjoyed some tasty potato skins and a couple of pints at the bar. Lots of tv screens to watch.
Nice place good food
Got a table on a wierd place in the restaurang were everyone went by, there were flies on the wall, the drink didnt taste at all as it should do and the food tasted like something I could do at home with only my microwave. The only thing that were ok was my beer (I hope there wasnt any flies in it tho)
The staff was very friendly, we didn't have to wait long to get to our table. The food was good, the only thing was that they presented the bill a little bit to fast so that we couldn't really finish our beer in a normal time.
Really friendly and attentive staff. Great vibes, amazing food and good for all how I met your mother fanatics!
Great place for a tourist or a local. Had a great feel to it all around!
Disappointed by McGees. Made a reservation and the hostess wasn’t aware. We waited for a table and then they put us upstairs which has no HIMYM memorabilia which was the whole reason for our visit. We were seated near a bunch of large parties and the whole floor had one waiter. The food wasn’t impressive but it was at a high price point.
Waitress dumped water on my mom. No apology was made. She said it was just water and seemed annoyed we asked for some napkins.
Ate here on a Thursday night. We had a 7:30 reservation which they confirmed two days before by text, They seated us within five minutes of our reservation. It is a noisy local pub. We had mixed drinks, draft beer along with Mushroom soup and nachos. Everything was delicious. Would definitely return again.
This was on my bucket list just for the fact that it's the Home of "How I Met your Mother "
I Love the show so I had to visit the restaurant. First of all, I wanted to cry... i wish they had more HIMYM stuff tho. We all ordered from the HIMYM menu. The cocktail drinks were strong so they were worth the 10-15 bucks. I had the burger and it was amazing even though the fries were plain and kinda boring. Mac & Chz was not that great. But over all, I was satisfied just for the fact that I always wanted to visit this place. I would definitely go back to this restaurant if I got the chance to visit NY again.
Great food, with good sized portions. The chicken pot pie was amazing, especially on a cold snowy night!
Flew to NYC for a vacation. HIMYM fans. We had to visit the pub. We reserved with 2 months in advance to have a table for our date. We wanted it to be perfect. Downside of things was when we got there and checked in for our reservation, people had already taken our “reserved” table without permission. The hostesses had to go back and forth to figure out where to place us. Very bad first impression for a “reserve” priority system with months in advance. After all they found us a table. Not the best option. The one that was reserved for us was a booth by a window on the second floor, way better spot.
Overall, food was good and the place is very cozy and chill. Food was served within 10min of being ordered. Friendly waitresses!
Perfect for two old friends to have delicious soup , salad and wine.
This is probably an ok restaurant, but we arrived in plenty of time for our reservation. In fact, we were quite early. The captain kept trying to get us to eat at the bar. Finally, on his third attempt to push us to the bar, I asked him if we were going to get a table at the time we reserved. He shrugged his shoulders nonchalantly and said he didn't know. We left. If a restaurant isn't going to honor reservations, don't take them.
Our son and his girlfriend are fans of HIMYM and asked to go here. We arrived earlier than our reservation but were seated right away. Great table on the second floor at the window overlooking the street. Quick service and food. Food was good, extremely hot/fresh, and large portions.
Although i had a reservation, they made me wait 15 min and priorized other customers. The food was ok, the service normal, very loud and dark, and if you are a himym big fan like i am is not worth it. The only fun is the drinks menu named as some episodes. It isnt similar as maclarens.
Great find , serves was good and quite which is important if you are catching a show in the area. Will definitely go back!
If you eat there - get a burger as those looked like the better value.
Their Irish Special meals were on the "French" side, meaning very small and left you hungry.
The drinks were great!!
After "eating" there we went out for Pizza - it was that small!!
The 'How I Met Your Mother' connection is highly oversold - the fans of the show were disappointed.
Good prices, great service and ofcourse extra fun for HIMYM fans like me. Recommended.
It was a good place to hang out, prices are good -for a bar located close to Times Square and 5th av-, if you make a reservation is way better cause you dont have to be close to the bar which happens to be crowded.
As a HIMYM fan, this deserves so many more stars. Clever menu and drinks. This was my second time there and I can't wait to go back.
Great place! I went there for the how I met your mother night and had a lot of fun! Cold beer and great food . Staff is also really nice! I recommend the place!
Toilets were awful. Staff were friendly. Food was ok.
This was our first visit, because of an event nearby, and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner: a terrific Guiness, which my husband loves, my shepherd's pie was perfectly prepared and seasoned, and my husband's lamb sliders were excellent as well. Kudos to our attentive server, Yvonne.
Amazing food, great ambiance, and surreal experience for the HIMYM fans. Hats off to our server, Irene 'the waitress from Thailand', for making sure our McGees experience will be memorable. Much love from the Philippines!
We had a wonderful friendly waitress Patty, we had a couple cocktails so we were a bit silly. She was so kind and helpful, she is a gem. Go Patty 🎉🎉🎉 Below is a photo of me with my moscow mule this cocktail is super delicious 😁😁😁
Excellent service, tasty dark beer, nice drinks, and really good music. The WiFi is pretty good, too, so I definitely recommend it if you're traveling and need a place to chat.
We go to New York once a year for 6 days. We always go to McGees for dinner on one night. Friendly pub. Good happy hour prices. Great location. Friendly wait staff and patrons. I had the house merlot - tasty and inexpensive and the Mcgees Burger. Lots of fries with it. My wife had the shepherd's Pie - lots of mashed potatoes - maybe too many and not enough other ingrediants. She ha a Nutty Irishman coffee. again very tasty. Chocolate molten cake with whipped cream and ice cream at a reasonable $7.00. If you bring kids watch out for the enthusiastic sports patrons shouting expletives while watching the New York Giants lose.
The story of McGee's is that is is the muse for the creation of McClaren's on the show How I Met Your Mother. Our friend group were avid fans of the show and thus wanted to have our own McClarens experience while in NYC.
The food and service were fantastic!
Very cool place for friends and bar sitting
I relly like it
I took my son here because he wanted to have a burger from the "How I Met your Mother" menu. Although it was a Sunday, the server pointed out the sirloin burger is the "MacLaren" burger! The hostess was just as nice as she could be and the server and all the staff were super friendly and of course took our picture. (tourists!!) Great pub!!! Thanks McGees, for making my son's first trip to NYC memorable...oh yea, and we were on our way to see a matinee on Broadway!!! :) Great start to our day!
We stayed on second floor, and some girls were very drunk and speaking very loud. My parents couldn't enjoy and didn't understand all the good things I told them previously about the place
Would recommend for a quick drink at the bar if you are going for the How I Met Your Mother experience. HIMYM T-shirts are reasonably priced. Would not recommend for a meal. The prices were high - it has been our most expensive "touristy" meal since we've been in NYC. Some food was very good. Other food was not. The server was friendly and effective.
This restaurant was amazing, great service, great food!! Will definitely be back.
A great place to go! I told them that I wanted my first night in New York to be special and they gave me a lovely place by the window. The service was also great and the food, tasty and abundant. I would go back any time.
Se supone que es el bar de How I Met Your Mother, y uno esperaria que tuvieran adentro algo parecido al bar de la serie... pero no! no es nada parecido, lo unico que se encuentra son un par de fotos de los actores en el bar y listo... no es lo que esperabamos, y tal vez fue por falta de información
