Tir na nOg Irish Bar & Grill - MSG
Please note that open table reservations are for dining only. While we have bar tables tables available for drinks and bar food we do not accept open table reservations for just drinks.
Great place to meet for a drink or lunch/dinner before any event at The Garden or before you catch a train in Penn Station. Two minute walk to The Garden. Service is very friendly & quick. Food is good hot pub food. Fish & Chips, Burgers etc are all excellent. Portions are very generous. Recommended for sure.
Great service on a packed night before a show at MSG.
Hamburger was Amazing. Loved the pretzels as well
Excellent service and food! A little loud at the beginning because it was Friday and Happy Hour. The drinks are amazing. Had a Manhattan it was made correctly!
The newly renovated Penn Station location is beautiful! And very convenient for commuters.
Have been going for many years at their old location and now on 31st Street. Great service, excellent food, great atmosphere
I hadn't been to the MSG location in years. The food was still great, but the location is loud. We were sat upstairs and shortly after we arrived a very large party arrived. They never sat down and were very loud. It made having dinner and trying to talk almost impossible. The server apologized and we were finally moved to a table downstairs. If you know you are going to have a situation like this, you shouldn't seat other people in the area. They traded customer satisfaction for profit, and that is just unacceptable in any service industry. It's a fine line, but it made our evening uncomfortable. Doubtful that I will dine here again.
Comfortable access on ground floor, with TV screens. Accessible to many transit options. Tasty dishes, extensive selection of drinks, served quickly. Will go again to try other dishes in a different time
Fantastic location. Prices are high for amount of food that is given. Food & drinks were excellent.
Great Irish Pub across from MSG.
Had a great seat by the window overlooking the Garden
Food was very good - fish and chips were awesome!
Good, lively atmosphere but service was a bit slow likely due to the volume of people there...
Thank you for letting us know about this. Your feedback helps us get better! We are glad you enjoyed your experience otherwise and we hope to see you back again soon.
Tir Na Nog never disappoints. Great food, service, atmosphere.
Thanks for the great review, Steve! We work hard to meet expectations and we’re happy to hear we hit the mark. Come back and see us soon!
Consistently excellent food and service. Definitely the pre-show place to be and also for any/every day dining.
Awesome review Mitch, thank you!
Perfect modd for a pre-concert bite. Casual yet clean and sharp - delicious food and great servers. It's a classy Irish pub with a few more options!
Thanks for your great review Sue, we always strive to deliver top quality food and service.
We were seated promptly, had a great server and the food was very good. Perfect for pre concert/ game meal. Will be back.
We are glad you had an enjoyable experience with us! See you next time.
Great spot for drinks and a meal before MSG!
Really great for pre-event dinner/cocktails. Excellent service, interesting menu for beer, cocktails and dining. Tuna wonton nacho appetizer was very nice. Shepherds Pie was very good - bit heavy on the potato but very tasty. Nice ambiance and so so convenient to MSG for events.
Thank you for your feedback Lulu.
This is a jewel to have any meal at and right by Madison Square Garden.
I was disappointed that they no longer have Branzino on the menue.
Thanks for your awesome review! We have changed things up a little with our menu, replacing the Branzino with an equally delicious Mahi Mahi.
I was disappointed which I usually am not with an Irish Pub. I ordered a Brisket Sandwich and Brisket is always cooked to the point of extreme tenderness and falling apart. This meat was very tough and chewy.
However, the most disappointing thing was that as we were drinking our coffee, the waiter came over and said we would have to leave soon because they had another reservation for that table. There were other tables clearing out, and we were going to be leaving soon anyway, but I found it to be very rude to be asked to leave the table. I will not visit this establishment again and do not recommend it either.
A great place to go before a game at Madison Square Garden. Stellar service no matter how busy it is; excellent food and drink.
So.....we go to an Irish Bar. I order Corned Beef on Rye...…….except they have no Rye at 1 pm on SuperBowl Sunday. Not good. The sandwich comes on 7 Grain Bread......ok, but they bring no Mustard to the table and very little on the Sandwich. Ok......so I will ask the waitstaff for some, except they are no where to be found.
Its a nice place...….but very poorly managed and operated.
Great place to meet up before MSG.
Great blackened chicken salad. Service is always great.
Food good, service good, ambience interesting.
Great place to go before a game at MSG! The people are all friendly, the drinks are great, and the bar food is spot on. Will def be back!
Neighborhood pub, middle age crowd for sporting event at the Garden. Perfect location, great service, solid fare. The bar extends the length of the restaurant and it’s quite loud. Very reasonable prices. Overall would definitely recommend.
Great place for dinner or lunch before an event at MSG! Great food and drink at reasonable prices!
Thanks Spike for the five stars, you're a star!
Perfect location for a bite to eat before the Billy Joel Concert at MSG. One of the only places very nearby that would take reservation. We were extremely satisfied overall.
Thanks for your review Ronnie, we are delighted to hear you were extremely satisfied with your dining experience. We agree that we are the perfect location before any MSG event.
Consistently good choice for a neighborhood without many comparable options.
Great place before the game! Food was very good, fair price and convenient to the Garden.
We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us Maggie! Thank you for your review.
Solid food and drink at fair price. Best location for MSG event
Thanks LouisP for your review. We definitely agree that we are the best location for any MSG event, hope to see you again soon!!
Food was great and brought out quickly. Request seating on upper level if possible - less noisy
Hi Michelle, we are glad you enjoyed your experience with us! Yes, on concert & game nights it tends to get busy and louder downstairs, our upstairs dining area offers a more relaxing experience. Thank you for the review!
I made a mistake - I actually thought Tir na Nog was a different place when I booked the pre-hockey reservations. It sounds like a really old-fashioned, darkwood pub, but instead it's a brighhtly-lit, diner-like setting with a bar on the left, booths on the right, and not an ounce of atmosphere anywhere.
If you're in a hurry and need a burger and a beer before an MSG event, knock yourself out. If, like me, you are looking for something a little more authentic, keep looking.
The acoustics are such that even though the place wasn't crowded, you had to shout in the booths in order to be heard. Service was OK, food meh.
Great spot before the game. More than just Irish pub food. Had a nice dinner at a reasonable price.
Glad to hear you had a good time! Join us again sometime
Excellent food selection and wine list. Service was quick and outstanding
The place is very loud. We arrived 13 minutes late and were told that they had cancelled our reservation, even though the website says a 15 minute grace period. After about 10 minutes they were able to find a table for us. The food was ok and service was good, but we won’t be going back.
We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. The menu is varied enough to appeal to adults and children alike. The food was served promptly and plates were very attractive. Everything was done to perfection. Will definitely return! Slainte!
Had the Shepherd’s Pie. Excellent! My only disappointment was that there wasn’t much else “Irish” on the menu except beer.
We went there as a family after the Cirque de Soliel show b/c we didn't want to move the car and they had a kids menu:) It was brunch time and the menu was good and varied. One of the hamburgers was cooked a bit less than he would of liked. The egg dish one of us had was good and the blackened chicken salad was also good. We were pleasantly surprised for a place so close to MSG:) Would def go there again.
Thank you for your review Daniel. We apologize for the wrong burger temperature but glad you still had a good time. See you next time.
Food, Service and Atmosphere were Excellent !!
I would definately Recommend it to Others & I am Going again !!
Thank you for the great review! Yes please feel free recommend to others, see you next time.
