    Ambiance was ok. Music was pleasant. We ordered rubin sandwich which came with fries...The worst ruben ever! French fries tasted terrible too. Peachy O'Brien tasted awful.

    Muy lento el servicio y eso que habia muy poca gente, el precio un poco elevado en algunos casos y no me parece bien que incluyan la propina en la factura y sea de un 20%, ya que otros restaurantes te dan la opcion de elegir si das un 15-18 o 20, en este caso el 20 no era merecido.

    Food was good but the service disappointing. Our waitress barely look at us and seemed annoyed with our presence all the time. I was with my husband, sister and mom and wanted to show them an Irish pub because I lived there for a while and unfortunately the experience was not good.

    It was a cute place. Actually got there early and we were able to get seated. Sat on the 2nd floor right near the street view of the window. Lovely seats. Unique alcoholic drinks. Loved the French onion soup and burger. I would go here again.

    Even though I had a confirmed reservation via open table, the hostess told me she didn’t have it. I showed her my mobile confirmation but she me not to worry about it. I then received a cancellation email from the restaurant and had to contact open table for my points. Hostess needs training big time. Waitress was good, food average bar food. I like the O’Brien’s ale

    Went with family. Food was ok, but lacked something, a roll or side salad or something. Not forgotten, just not included. The waitress was terrible. I had to ask twice for my daughters water, then finally went to the bar to fetch it myself. Then waiting for the check, again I had to go to the bar to get it myself. Waitress never came back to check on our food or even try to sell us another round of drinks. Decor was average. Cleanliness was average.

    We dined at the restaurant just after traveling into the city. We ordered a Reuben, Chicken relish wrap and onion soup. Everything was delicious. There could have been more corned beef on the Reuben but it was good as served. We were seated in the back of the second floor where the dining area is quiet and private. Our server was very efficient and pleasant. She always there when needed.

    Our family had a very bad experience with our waitress who appeared to be impaired and should not have been allowed to work. We were left unattended for an extremely long time, had to deliver our own drinks from the bar that were left to get warm and eventually had to seek the assistance from another waitress. Needless to say our order was mixed up, we waited way too long for our food, which came up sporadically, making the overall experience unpleasant. The waitress who took over afterwards was exceptional and she acknowledged our displeasure. The discounted bill was certainly appreciated.

    Great pub right in the middle of Times Square, but tucked away enough to feel like a small neighborhood bar. We went for dinner on a Saturday night and had no wait. The food is great and their service is awesome. Great music (pretty loud in case you're not into that) from the 80s-90s. Fair priced food and drinks. We went there the day after just to get drinks!

    Went on a Friday evening before a show. Nice chill vibe. Not too loud. It’s a bar but was ok for my family with teenage girls. Good Shepard’s pie, onion rings, fries. The girls got flatbreads. I would call it higher end bar food. Was glad that it was just a calm hang out atmosphere. Friendly staff.

    Still one of our primary "go-to" restaurant/pubs for pre-theater dinner and drinks, and by far, the very best Guinness Beef Stew of all the Irish pubs in the area. Service is always attentive, friendly and professional.

    Upstairs dining pre or post theater is great. Food is Irish focused and good sized portions. Shepards Pie may be small for a very hearty appetite. Burger or corned beef are excellent. Service can be a bit slow if the upstairs is very busy. Downstairs is an after work gathering place.

    The food was really good! We ordered a burger and the beef briscuit sandwich. The burger was juicy and cooked to specs (medium). The beef brisuit sandwich was delicious. The server was friendly and the food came out quickly. We had to flag down the waitress when we needed something, but it was a pretty small place and not too crowded, so it didn’t cause any problems for us. This was a nice casual place to unwind with comfort food and a beer after a long day of sightseeing.

    This is a great place. We only stayed in the bottomed part but we wanted the live entertainment. Even though they were late it was worth the wait. Only issue was the bartender not handling properly a drunk costumer. The beer and food selections and tastes were great with reasonable prices.

    We celebrated a friend's birthday lunch at O'Brien's. Being former patrons of Langan's, we were recommended to visit O'Brien's by former Langan's associates. Food was great! Ambiance - got some Langan's feel to the upstairs. Highly recommend this friendly neighborhood pub!
