Great little pub with very good burgers and the like. Also pitchers of beer, which were very good.

A good place to watch an American football game, although a Liverpool match seems to be a different story. I will definitely be back to one!!!

The service was friendly and attentive. The Glen Sandwich was very tasty. For a pub, the noise level was low enough to hear one’s conversation. Some booths offer privacy making it easier to talk.

We made a reservation for 11pm and when we arrived, we were told the chef just left for the night. We had to go find dinner elsewhere.

We came here on a Saturday afternoon after spending 4 hours at the 9/11 memorial. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. The placebos a very coo vibe. Our server was efficient, just not particularly friendly. Only real concern is that there were 3 or 4 women who were playing pool and one of them was ridiculously and needlessly loud - I’m talking yelling at the top of her lungs. I recommend this place without hesitation.

The bar was incredibly loud, there was a UFC or boxing fight. The restaurant seating was confusing since there wasn’t a host or a sign that let us know to wait or seat ourselves. Waiters were just walked by us and another group of people waiting for a table. We left after a min or two.

It is an Irish pub like most other Irish pubs in the world. Food was pretty obviously assembled rather than cooked. Noise levels were over 85db.

Really great food and cool vibe but TERRIBLE service. Entire place was empty and we asked to be put somewhere a little further from the speakers but instead were put right under a speaker and had music blasting on us all night which made conversation difficult. The servers just weren't friendly and looked miserable to be there. Had to ask for our check at the end of the night 3 separate times before we finally got it. Would love to go back because their curry fries, shepherds pie and chicken pot pie were perfectly made but only if service improves.

This place is amazing. If you’re looking for a friendly atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices, this is your place. I ended up there the first time because my wife was shopping down the street. I had such a good time my whole family came back for brunch the next day.

Five out of eight of us enjoyed our meals. However, we arrived early and were seated at the back of an almost empty restaurant not far from the bar, yet waited for more than 10 minutes for a server. The server arrived only after a person from our party went to the bar to request service. Additionally, the server only checked back with us after we asked the food runner for another drink. The bathrooms were dirty with paper all over the floor; this should not be at 4 o’clock in the afternoon!

Chicken curry was okay. Irish dishes & burgers are terrific.

Also lovely to meet a hostess from the Kingdom.

A hidden gem when you fancy a pint at a proper bar or for casual dining with friends.
The bar prices are a little high but there is a great selection of draught beers and a very full range of wines and spirits.
The food is very reasonably priced with good quality, presentation and portion sizes.
The bar can be quite busy and the regular clients definitely get served before the tourists but, the vibe is friendly and welcoming.
You aren't spoilt for choice in this area of NY but if you're passing this is a great place to quench your thirst or gather with friends.

First time here. When we finally found which door was for the restaurant, we could smell a very strong disinfectant. We were glad they had cleaned the place but it was almost overwhelming. My friend and I both ordered hamburgers. They were good but a little dry. We ordered them well done but I always order my burgers well done & they aren't dry. The fries were very good. Also, the service was kind of 'lax'. We hardly got refills and once had to ask for them. So, I doubt if I will go there again. Just too many things that happened there that don't happen at other restaurants.

Food was Luke warm, mediocre and tasteless. service was haphazard and slow at best ! The Shepherds pie was mostly unseasoned potatoes and the Chicken curry was served with hot rice and freezing cold chips.

I recommend the Irish American burger. It was so good. I didn't think I would like it but I loved it. There is no service in the restaurant due to it being underground. It has free wifi though
