The Keg Room is an upscale casual American-Irish pub and restaurant. Rather than a traditional Irish sports bar look, The Keg Room has gone with a gorgeous and ornate Celtic look that is both bright and elegant without being stuffy. The Keg Room boasts one of the longest bars (over 100ft.) in New York City, which is especially impressive when one considers just how many bars there are in the United State's largest metropolis.

Reservations via OpenTable are limited to 8 guests per table; please call the restaurant for larger parties!

It’s the experience you expect when you go to a place called The Keg Room. They checked our vaccination status at the door, but don’t expect protocol beyond that. The servers do not wear mask and it was uncomfortable.

The food is fair. We hadn’t eaten all day, so we finished our meal but we all agreed it was because we were starving. The beer was cold but a little flat. The location is good and the atmosphere has potential as a post pandemic meeting spot.

Met family while on vacation. Irish pub that my uncle had never been. Thought he had been to every Irish pub in the city. He thought it was a great place, too.
Fun atmosphere many locals

Brings together the traditional Dublin pub feel with a modern approach. Lots of hospitality with lots of room, lots of TVs with all of the current matches/games on. The Staff is amazing, very help full and courteous. And the food is great. Have eaten here many times and the kitchen delivers every time. Just off Times Square too! Recommend to anyone - the local and the tourist.

We love this bar & anytime in New York we have Thanksgiving dinner & drinks here. The owner is s lovely woman as are her fantastic staff. The food was mostly grand, a little overdone on the pastry & the pizza wasn't great but the friendliness here & good covid practice overtook everything- we will be back again & again

It’s called the keg room. We arrived and were seated, given a beer menu, and finally when I tried to order a draft beer they tell me no draft beers are available. You would think the hostess or the waitress would mention that before I am ready to order. I order a bottle of beer and they don’t bring or offer a glass. The food was mediocre at best. My guess is this place will not be around very long unless they have any extremely cheap lease because I can’t imagine anyone returning there.

Returned several nights in a row there after watching a football game there on Sunday and returning with clients & colleagues during a conference week in NYC. Needless to say, I returned because I enjoyed the place. The staff is particularly friendly and accommodating, especially the bartender from Ireland who was awesome and the most hospitable I’ve ever met! The Keg Room delivers on a top of the line sports bar experience with great pub food, lots of easy to see TV screens and a variety of fans rooting for their respective teams

Price was fair for New York City. Server seemed to be preoccupied and in a rush, which didn’t make sense because their were only a few tables seated when we were there. Food was good.

My friends and I had a Wonderful Time at the Keg Room. It was conveniently located within a short walking distance of Penn Station, and the Food was Excellent. I had the Shepard's Pie, and I enjoyed it very much. They also had some great Seasonal Martinis, which we all loved. I would recommend this place to everyone.

The shrimp starter had the most awful sauce, the salad had drowned in it. We ordered two, got one. Noise was so loud that the waitress couldn’t hear us. No drinks arrived until after starter. As soon as missed starter arrived, so did main course. Steak was cold and inedible. We left almost all of it but the male who collected our plates, did not question this. The next table was encroaching on us which made making a complaint difficult, plus no one could hear anything. It was our last night in the City and we had eaten well up until this point. We had food from a street vendor that was considerably better than this.

Service was great – very friendly. Nachos are usually “just nachos” but these were particularly good – very fresh, everything about them was great. Flatbread also great. Careful with your seating, though: we had reservations timed for a Yankees game and were seated tucked into a corner where it was great for conversation, but not-so-great for seeing the game. When you’re shown you table, just look around before you commit…
