Great place, but go during the afternoons
By richardadragna on 7/26/2010
Went to this pub on two separate occasions. One after a career fair held at the Garden; the other on the way home from Long Island waiting for the train to Hamilton, NJ. Talk about a contrast. Stout had ample amounts of breathing and walking room in the afternoon, barkeeps were friendly and engaging (one even helped me with a suggestion on which stout to drink), and the food was tasty (bacon cheeseburger with aged Irish cheddar and fries). The evening, however, was a different animal. Overcrowded, thus making it impossible to have to walk around without squeezing past others, and the barkeeps were obviously stressed. Only had one Brooklyn Lager then, and the guy that serviced me was prompt with the drink. Still, I can tell by his face this crowd was getting to him, and I can't blame him. Overall, I really like this place a lot, and would make this a regular occurrence whenever I'm in the city. The only thing is to go during the afternoons and early evenings; things can get hectic later on.
Worst Time Ever

My friends and I had one of the worst experiences of all time in this place. Ended up getting thrown out for something in which we had no part of. Just not a good time. Never going back there again because of how rude the management was there.
Made my family sick

I went here for a nice night of watching the rangers game. We ordered the little neck clams and everything was ok....until about 2 hours after we got home. My mother and sister were throwing up in the bathrooms for almost 4 hours straight. I had to stay up and watch them because of it. They aren't allergic to seafood and this is the first time I've ever seen them this sick. The food was ok besides, but the wait staff as slow and a little bit rude. 5.95 is not cheap for fries.
Lame, rude not worth it!

Why go here when there are so many bars in the area that is sooo much better. Stout is rude, over crowded, smells!
Great for Friends and Family

Invited 10 relataives for a pre-Garden graduation lunch. We were served quickly and accurately but were left alone to enjoy ourselves. Everything from the burgers, pizza, chicken pot pie, Shepherd's Pie and ribs were outstanding, even for those usually hard to please. The prices are reasonable for the city and close to the Garden. They have a good draught beer selection and bottles a s well. Something for every beer palate. We enjoyed it enough to return after graduation. You'll enjoy some good comfort food at pretty good prices.
At last a great palce to go by MSG & Penn Station

I loved this bar so much, it is located so close to MSG and Penn Station it's the perfect place to meet friends from anywhere. We were going to see Tom Petty at the Garden and went for dinner and drinks before the show. They played live dvd's on all the big screens (there were lots) before and after the show. We were so buzzed going to the show and couldn't wait to come back afterwards and relive the event. We sat at the bar until our friends arrived, Mark was great and helped us get a table. The food was great and came out fast, we had pizza, a spinch dip and oysters it was all great. I can't wait to go back after work some night and enjoy the place again.
