Tir na nOg Irish Bar & Grill - MSG Ratings and Reviews
We went here for dinner before a Rangers game at MSG (this restaurant is across the street from MSG/Penn Station, which makes it very convenient).
I had the bronzino and my lady had the fish and chips. Both were delicious. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend.
Perfect spot for a pre-game or pre-event meal or drinks before an event at Madison Square Garden. It is right across the street from MSG and large parking garage is nearby. Despite it being a busy night the host greeted us warmly upon our arrival and quickly took us to our table. Great comfort food - we had the meatball appetizer and the hummus along with the fish and chips and burgers. Moscow mules served in copper mugs and a nice beer menu as well.
We were looking for a spot near Penn Station/ Chelsea. Found Tir na nOg and read quite a number of positive reviews.
I realized it was a popular watering hole for people attending events at MSQ. Knowing that there were no events scheduled for that Friday, we made a reservation.
We were greeted promptly by a hostess/server. Right away she recognized that we would not be happy on the lower bar level , and brought us upstairs, where the joyful noise was a bit attenuated. This still does change the fact that this a bar with a boisterous clientele.
I must comment on the attentive service of the staff. This high level of attention to customers , coupled with a simple but varied menu, made for a good experience at Tir na nOg.
We take an annual overnight trip into the city at Christmas time with our two kids and were looking for a cozy festive place to eat. Tir ma nOg was it! They had great tasting food selection for kids and adults. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. It was nicely decorated for the holiday and the inside was unique with many quant cozy places to gather. Food was flavorful and their was no line which may have deferred some but glad we took the chance.
We loved the second floor table by the window we had for our group of 5. The setting was inviting and charming and the noise level on the second floor was not loud. Each of us enjoyed our food. The service was friendly and prompt and the location was perfect with only a moment's walk to the play.
Dinner before the Andrea Bocelli RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from Madison Square Garden! So convenient! Made reservations through Open Table for 4:45pm and got seated right away. Menu had good selections (get the pork chop), wait staff was MORE than attentive, and we got out in a timely fashion. Our conversations were NOT rushed either! Enjoyed the visit and will return and recommend.
Somewhat disappointed that with a reservation got seat in front of the door area which seemed more like a place for the bar crowd for a quick bit. The service too was not good. Once the food was delivered it was hard to get the attention of the waitress. Also the noise level, though prepared for it because of others review was still pretty shockingly high. Not sure if I would recommend this place other than for a preshow quick bite. Cannot have a conversation, had a sore throat when dinner was over.
Took the family here after a company children's holiday party for the 2nd year in a row. The noise level is high but the service and food made up for that. They have a kids menu but our 10 yr old ordered a steak from the regular menu and said it was the best she had ever eaten so that made the entire night worth it. There are very few kid friendly places in the area so this is a great find since it's a pub and restaurant. We will make this an annual tradition here and look forward to next year.
The Food is excellent but if dining the night of a event at MSG it will be very busy and LOUD !!! The Short Ribs, Pasta with Cream sauce and Pork Chops are outstanding. In addition the Roasted Chicken is very good as well !
Was a bit of a wait between drinks, ordering food and getting the food
Maker sure to make reservations and be prepared to 'yell' to your partner or friends the night of a event at MSG - still worth it for the food, bar and price !
I have eaten (both lunch and dinner ) at Tir na nOg numerous times (both locations). The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Service is very good. The past 2 times I've had dinner at the MSG location, though, the volume of the music playing is so loud you have to scream at your dining companions despite sitting quite close to one another. It's ridiculous, not to mention unpleasant. I can only assume that management wants to emphasize a club-like atmosphere instead of a grown up establishment for dinner/drinks/conversation. While I still recommend it for lunch, I won't be going for dinner again nor can I recommend it for dinner unless screaming to converse with your companions is what you're looking for in an experience there. We would have stayed longer last Saturday evening but we all had pounding headaches and were just tired of screaming to be heard a few inches away. Very disappointing.
Our reservation was available as soon as we arrived. We had burgers and appetizers which were above average. The service was a little bit slow in the beginning but we were not in a hurry so it was not a problem for us. We had fun and would recommend the place to others.
However, if you are in a hurry you may want to indicate that to the waitstaff up front.
Went here because it came up in my Google search for restaurants near Madison Square Garden. I am so glad we went there. This place is very lucky to be located where it is, and I'm glad that it lived up to the good reviews.
I love Irish pubs and I probably wouldn't recommend this to someone looking for an authentic Irish atmostphere, as you would never know it was Irish by the surroundings. However, its authenticity was in the waiter/waitress and bartender, as well as the menu options. I didn't find it to be terribly noisy like some of the reviews talked about, but I would definitely throw in some occasional Irish music - it doesn't have to be the old-fashioned traditional songs but some modern Irish would be appropriate and possibly enough to keep most people satisfied if that's what they're looking for.
Food was wonderful - service was perfect and friendly and I did enjoy the atmosphere. If I go back to that area, I will definitely return.
Tir na nOg is always a solid, reliable go-to choice for good food, good service, good atmosphere, great pub. Perfect location next to MSG, subway and LIRR makes it a really convenient place to meet for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Good for groups. And they have the best host in town!
We were a party of 6. 2 of the 6 meals came out of the kitchen wrong. Told us it would take a while for the correct dish to come out. 45 minutes later, as we were getting ready to leave, the other 2 meals arrived, 1 was still wrong. Told us we had been put at back of line in the kitchen even though they screwed up order. The good thing is they comped the meal but 2 of us went hungry.
