Excellent food. Greatly enjoyed the fish & chips and would rank them in the top 3 of fish and chips that we have had all around the country and in London. We also very much enjoyed the arugula and beet salad. The ambience was also very fun as it resembled a pub in Ireland or London. Will definately go back the next time we are in NYC.

We had an incredibly pleasant dining experience. This food was tasty and well prepared. We thought we had lots of options, especially gluten-free options. Would definitely recommend the calamari- as it was tender and tasty. We’d definitely go back.

Table was ready at reserved time. Location is large bar style with separate seating. Noise level more on the energetic side. Food was very good, particularly compared to other bar-type places. Service was very alert and friendly. Recommended place for evyeryday dining or gathering of friends (not so much for business dinner as conversations are somewhat difficult due to noise level).

Overall it was a good evening. My pardner and I booked online and we arrived to find the special reserved location was ready just for us as requested. Our server was very prompt and had very good suggestion with respect to our drinks and the menu. We were both satisfied with her recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and drinks. The noise level at first seems a bit too noisy, but after a while it was fine.
I would recommend this Bar to friends.

I had initially made reservations for 6 people at 7pm, which was not a problem. But then as the day progressed we had to change our reservations to 8 p.m., and there still was no problem, they were very accommodating. We arrived and the place was not very packed but the ambiance was very nice. It looks very rustic, similar to a European style pub. Our waitress, who was very pregnant at the time, treated us like family, she was very professional and a very nice person to deal with. By the way, we went in mid July and she is due in early September, she's a trooper. We ordered our food, two orders of the Fish & Chips, three different styles of hamburger, and I had the pan roasted cod with the Lobster mashed potatoes. All the food was outstanding. I really liked the pan roasted cod. It was so well prepared I would go back for seconds and thirds and fourths of this particular dish. We all enjoyed ourselves and would go back again.

Extensive lunch menu of both pub favorites and unique creations. Muscles with chorizo were to die for. Pub standbys fish and chips and chicken pot pie were good size and very tasty. Fried chicken bacon lettuce tomato onion ciabatta was really good as was the gorgonzola pear roast pork flat bread. We will definitely be back.

Sunday brunch was very quiet. Hardly anyone there. I can't really comment on the quality of the food since I had the Irish breakfast and my friend had a burger. Both choices were fine. The Irish breakfast was copious and guaranteed to clog your arteries, which is exactly what you want from it. Service was attentive, but again the place was almost deserted. Other times and days, it must be lively given the enormous sq footage of the venue.

We had dinner here between Parts I & II of Harry Potter. My husband wanted to watch the golf tournament. It was perfect! Hamburgers were great and the chicken was delicious. Portions are very large and we should have shared the appetizers. Waiter was very nice. Excellent range of wine, beer and ciders. We sat in a quiet area right next to a big screen TV. Husband was happy!

I was with a friend and we decided to share small plates instead of having entrées.
The Reuben arancini, roasted beet, goat cheese and arugula salad and the Korean barbecue lettuce wraps were all delicious choices, as was the warm apple tart with cinnamon ice cream we had for dessert.
The service was slightly on the inattentive side: I had to go look for our waitress two or three times ( dessert list, check, etc). We didn't mind very much because we were not in a hurry and it certainly was nice not being rushed to leave the table, however, I would have preferred not having to seek someone.

Great food, great atmosphere, a little pricey but totally worth it-you won’t be disappointed! The noise level was loud because it was St Patrick’s day and they had live music. However, my husband and I had a table that was not in the direct bar area and we were still able to have conversation. Check it out, it’s a fun place!

I called to make a reservation over a week ago to watch the Patriots game and celebrate my anniversary. They guaranteed that I would be at a high top and be able to see the game. We get there and we are seated in a corner, not able to see any TVs! They told us they had no other tables. When I mentioned I had spoken to a manager on Wednesday the hostess worked with us. (Again, Helen claimed that I said this was negative, when I didn't) Got an okay table where people used us as the main walk way, better than not seeing anything at all! Tamara (our server) was amazing! Although very busy - the bar backed up, host sitting her horribly, etc. She was calm and collected. I felt for her being in these shoes before. The food was mediocre at best. 7 dollars for a side of fries that is about the size of a small at McDonald's. My drink came half full. (Again not her fault) She said the bar was mad I ordered a margarita. If you struggle to make a margarita during a dinner rush, you shouldn't bartend. Tamara took off a bucket of beers and a margarita for us- so again I felt for her. She even made us a reservation for next game at any table we wanted. The only reon I'd be back would be to support her!

UPDATE: The manager Helen called me to CANCEL my reservation next week for the game. (She claims that it is because I wrote a harsh review, sorry it was all honest) On top of that, she told me I could have my 50 dollar tip back that I left the server on a 40 dollar bill. WOW. If this was ever my manager, I would be embarrassed to work for her! So sorry Tamara! Go somewhere that appreciates you! The owners should really be embarrassed and think about who is running their restaurant they are lucky they are in Times Square --- an overflow spot for other places when they are packed -- or just a bar with an Irish name that sounds comfortable-- but isn't.
