30 years ago, John Mahon and Eamonn Maher realized their dream. Their goal was to create a pub with old-world charm and warmth near the heart of the big city.
They wanted to create an up-scale pub that embraced its neighborhood roots. John and Eamonn had a vision of intimate booths and secluded tables with the smell of mahogany permeating through the room. They discovered a bar and restaurant that was as comfortable as your own living room. The space was in the perfect location where tourists, locals, and the business elite could sit side-by-side to enjoy a pint together. Located close to St. Patrick’s Cathedral, right down the block from Rockefeller Center and the bustling shops of 5th Avenue, they knew they had found their future home. There, in the space formerly known as "The Gathering Steakhouse," PJ Moran's was born.

This place was a gem for us. We had a 4:00 reservation but were there at least 40 minutes early. They were able to accommodate us and even changed tables for us after being seated (our request). The waitress (I think her name was Kate) was adorable and very very sweet. The food was authentic Pub Food. Delicious burgers. Awesome Chicken Pot Pie. The drinks were also delicious and we did have a variety! I would absolutely recommend for casual dining. But if you are looking for a quiet little place for intimate conversation look elsewhere. This is a fun place!

Must say, we chose PJ's at the last minute and were all pleasantly surprised at what a great choice. The waitress was exceptionally attentive, food hot and fresh. The manager checked came by and checked on our meal and service. Very impressed.

Decent option near the Rockefeller Center area if you're going to see the tree. Definitely recommend getting a reservation because the area is filled with tourists and it's hard to find a place to eat without a reservation. Food was decent but definitely overpriced, but that's to be expected in the area. I got the fish and chips which was rather pricey at $19 for the portion given, but my sister had the chicken avocado wrap which she raved about.

We were seeking a very last minute place to enjoy a late lunch for my daughter's friends & to get out of the cold while celebrating her 18th birthday for the day near Rockefeller Center. This place took us right away...like within 10 minutes of booking online and walking briskly to their location. The food was excellent and although it is a pub we sat near the back of the restaurant which was decorated in a festive manner and very comfortable. Highly recommend the turkey club sandwich and the French fries!!! Real turkey vs. lunch meat turkey. The mashed potatoes and salads we're also delicious. We would definitely go back on and trip.

we made the reservation through open table...we were a large party of 16. We arrived 15 minutes early to find they gave our table away because they had called a couple of hours earlier and we didn't answer the phone/call back. So, they assumed we weren't coming. I understand if we didn't arrive at the reservation time and they gave the table away, but to not even give us a fair chance was wrong. After waiting a half hour they divided us between 2 tables. The only reason we stayed was because we have 8 hungry children with us.

This was a lunch with my sister who I only see twice a year and had a lot to catch up on. We were seated at a 2top, elbow to elbow, but were pleasantly surprised that we were able to talk fairly privately. Food was great, service wonderful and we never felt rushed. For casual dining it was great. Thank you.

I would not recommend this spot to dine. The service was atrocious, the seating is more than cramped, and the overall ambiance is not worth the price you pay to dine here . I was there to celebrate my anniversary and this establishment and the horrible experience pretty much ruined the entire day!!!!

One of the best burgers ever. Two had fish and chips and really enjoyed. The shepherds pie was unfortunately more mashed potatoes than meat and gravy. We will be back and we will pass on to friends.
