"This 2 floor Irish pub restaurant is in Times Square close to the Broadway Theaters. There is a long and active ( read noisy) bar with high-top tables opposite the bar. Upstairs is another bar with tables and booths for dining. Service is good, friendly and professional. The menu consists of the usual pub fare. We had the mac & cheese which was very good and the Chicken Pot Pie. The Pot Pie had large chunks of chicken, carrots and potatoes in a nice flaky crust.
This is a good spot if you want a fast inexpensive meal on the way to or from a Times Square theater."

"Went there on 3/18 in search of a nice St. Patrick's celebration. Our table was very tight. There was only one other party and we asked if we could move to a larger space and the answer was no.
The service was non-existent. There were plenty of people working-a man with an Irish accent who appeared to be the manager and several waitresses. They barely spoke to us and seemed very preoccupied. The soda was flat, the food took a very long time and was cold when it arrived. We had to search them out to get the check.
It was a terrible experience that I am still shaking my head over.

"Excellent food and at a fantastic price. The corned beef and cabbage was vey tender and flavorful. Better than mine! The penne with vodka sauce and chicken was outstanding. My son said it just like the vodka sauce he had tasted in Italy. The shepherd's pie and beef brisket in pastry were outstanding. The only disappointment was the New York cheesecake. My son said that it was dry and not moist. We were extremely pleased with the total of our bill. We can honestly say that the portions were large and the five of us ate for less than $200, this is including drinks. I have recommended this restaurant to my friends that will be visiting New York."

"Excellent bar scene but if you get seated upstairs beware. Although she was not busy, our server waited 10 minutes to take our drink orders and we had to seek her out for a drink refill. We started with a fruit and cheese plate. The "toasted baguette slices" were from a box and stale. My wife and I had the shepherd's pie -- very bland."

"We thought it would be nice to show our teenage kids the fun of an Irish Pub in NYC. Bad decision on our part. Apparently this is the place to go if you want to scream out the F word over and over and over an over again. I have never been to a bar/pub/restaurant that was so frustratingly noisy with annoying profanity laced obnoxious idiots. And no one on staff seemed to care. Made for a bad experience."

"Dead bar. No energy. Manager was rude. Food took forever--they recommended a sampler platter that took 35 minutes to bring out and everything tasted like it was microwaved. Too many other options in Times Square area to EVER go back here."

"Looking for a fun place, close to our Broadway show, we found it!! The food was very good as was the atmosphere and very friendly wait staff. Brought back fun memories of visiting a few Irish pubs in Dublin this past spring. Would definitely go back....VERY VERY SOON!! Maybe next weekend come to think of it. One can never have tooooooo many Irish coffees lolllll. ENJOY!!!!"

"We had chosen this place for our dinner before the Christmas Spectacular in Radio City Music Hall. We went with our 4 yo grand son and made reservations day before. We got there about 5 pm and it was not too busy and we got the table on the second floor. There were only us and it was very peaceful there. Food was good and was served in a timely manner. Service was prompt and friendly. They don't have kids menu but have some dishes for kids to choose from. It is very close to Times Square but nice and quite place with good food. Prices are good for the location."

"We ate at O'Briens as we were looking for an Irish pub experience. We got that, for sure, as we were seated in the bar area. As it was just my 22 y.o. daughter and myself, this was fine, but if I were with younger children or friends looking for an evening out, I'd ask to be seated upstairs. The bar was lively but not at all obnoxious. People clearly knew each other, saying hello or bye to the bar area in general upon arrival/exit. The food was good, with generous portions. I had the corned beef and cabbage (served with potatoes) and it was good. My daughter had the chicken curry, which comes with a large serving of rice. The curry was fantastic! We also had a side of onion rings for an appetizer (with our beers) and they were good. One thing that surprised me was the small beer list. I expected an Irish pub to have a pretty decent list of draft and bottled beers, but this bar had maybe 6 or 8 of each. The microbrewery in my small hometown has a more extensive draft offering. Overall, this was a good meal with generous portions at reasonable prices (for NYC) and we'd return/recommend it to friends."

"Thinking we would get a delicious Rueben in an Irish Pub....not so much. Corned Beef was so lean it was dry...even with the condiments. Spinach salad was good. Hostess seemed bothered when asked a question."
