Waitress was inattentive to us and the food was not anything to rave about, plus there was a nice long piece of hair in my spouses burger! Nasty!

A real find. Just off 8th Avenue. Very large pub with separate dining areas away from bar noice. Very welcoming staff and service with a smile. Watched the Pats Rams game and thought I was in Boston with all the Tom Brady shirts. A good raucous crowd.

Sunday brunch was a unique experience that included Irish bacon and sausages as well as the British breakfast tradition of baked beans. It was supposed to include black and white pudding, but we got toast instead. The British-pub ambience was cozy and the service friendly. Arriving for our 11 a.m. reservation, we were the first ones there which was relaxing after a crowded few days in New York. Brunch comes with a mimosa, bloody Mary, or screwdriver; my mimosa was delicious. I felt as though we found a hidden gem not far from Times Square.

We chose this place because it was literally right next to our hotel and had an interesting menu. The choices are far more than typical Irish Pub fare, with some different things like a corned beef arancini appetizer and Thai mussels which were both good. The double barreled old fashioned drink was very good, the rum punch only ok. And while we had a good experience for dinner, we went back after a show for drinks and ended up simply leaving after about 5 minutes because nobody came to seat us or even acknowledge our presence.

If I knew it was patriot bar and they were playing at 1 which was when I made reservation I would not have come, I was getting together with non football fans all women. It was a little distracting , we all loved the food but too noisy for what our lunch was about.

This is our ‘go to’ pre-theater restaurant because the 39th St location is on the way uptown from Penn Stn but not a tourist trap. The beer selection is great and the food selection is too. There is something for everyone from Irish menu items (which we recommend) to burgers and salads and a Sunday brunch. We came back again today so twice in one week!

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.

Always a great place to eat/drink before an event at MSG. Close enough to walk but far enough that it is packed with crazed fans. Food is always very good and a nice selection of beers.
