    In a great location in Times Square, O'Donoghue's is a great value. Good, dependable food with terrific service in a lively atmosphere, the perfect spot for a high-value meal prior to a Broadway show.

    It was lunchtime so fairly quiet and we ate at the bar. The bartender was very accommodating even brewing decaf coffee for me to have a specialty coffee drink. I had a delicious Reuben sandwich and I like that they’ll substitute fries for salad.

    The place is way too crowded with tables on top of one another. The service was fine but not great. The food was terrible! The fish & chips were leathery & cold in the middle. The shepherds pie tasted fake, the gravy tasted like it came from a jar & I believe the potatoes were instant. We will not be going back.

    My friend and I chose this restaurant based on its menu and proximity to the theater we were going to after lunch. My friend had the banger mash and I had a salad with chicken. Both were delicious. The place was clean and because it was around noon, quiet. We were not rushed and had a leisure lunch with plenty of time to get to the theater. Would definitely return again.

    Seated right away. On this cold night their soups were hot and plentiful! Fish/chips and chicken curry did not disappoint. Fish was a breaded thick slice of 2- more than enough. Drink were reasonably priced.

    Second visit from the UK to NYC and second visit to O’Donoghues. The atmosphere is great and the service is friendly and quick. Plenty of choice on the menu and priced very reasonably. The food on both visits was superb. Highly recommend and well worth a visit.

    Before heading into the city, I Googled a pub to eat and O’Donoghue’s popped up. After reading the reviews i decided to make a reservation. Got there at 1 and place was packed. We were seated it immediately, we were not rushed and the food was delicious. So glad we picked this place.

    I found this place on a trip to New York this time. Was top rated & close to Time Square. A typical Irish pub. Met my expectations and the service was lovely. I absolutely loved the fish & chips… especially the chips! 😋 Already recommended the place to a couple of friends who visited New York !

    We were somewhat disappointed in the service but the food was very good. There was an issue with our table and there were no other tables inside so we were re-seated outside. But following the problem we were a little surprised that more of an effort to be attentive, at least, was not made. The dinner was very good and the menu has a good selection of offerings.

    Great location as we were headed to the Belasco Theatre, and it was just steps away. Friends ordered salads and were very impressed and said they were excellent. I ordered the grilled shrimp wrap, and while the flavors were yummy, it was kind of a mess to eat because there was almost too much filler. Fries were delicious, and beer selection was good. Overall, I would highly recommend!!

    My daughter was taking me to a play for my birthday and we had just met Fergal Burke, the owner of O’Donoghues and wanted to give it a try. I loved the look of the bar, the dark wood and it was not too big and loud. The food was delicious. I had the Shepherd’s Pie and my daughter has the Chicken Pot Pie and we ate every bite. We will definitely go back.
