I dropped in here after work last week for 2 pints. Its 1/2 block from Madison square Garden, around the corner from Macys and in general in a great spot to do a giant amount of beer biz. its owned by the same folks who run Maggys and St Andrews both in midtown and both pleasant spots for a brew. This place is much larger, but with the same pleasant, Irish themed, quality athmosphere. 25 on tap, mostly larger, but quality brews, Guiness, Harp, Boddingtons, Stella, a few Brooklyns, a Blue Point selection, SNPA, Bellhaven, Fullers, Smithwicks and a few true tap wasters, bud/miller. The bottle selection saves the day here. Decent variety of domestics and imports, from Magic Hat to Chimay. Nothing amazing, but you will find a wide variety of medim/high quality, widely available, respectable brew here. Lots of flat screens with soccer on, friendly Irishmen behind the bar. All in all a pleasant spot for a brew and some pub grub, but not a major micro, beer hunting destination. No cask brew, yet, they said its on its way. Good place for a fresh pint if passing through the area.

Extremely crowded post-work, pre-event bar, in midtown, in close proximity to MSG.
Good selection of beer
Typical NYC overpriced selection.
Obviously a fully stocked bar, with a good selection of beer, both on tap and in bottles.
Just a few actual stouts on tap, with many more available via bottle.
Very spacious with multiple bars and areas that lead to a bit of a labyrinth-type feel.
More than enough staff to accommodate the crowd without too long of a wait for food/drink.

My only knock on the place is this. If you have Stout in your name, you should have several stouts on tap. The entire tap list on our visit consisted of beer that are orange, yellow or red. Plenty of stouts in the bottle though.
We stopped in as the next to last stop of an afternoon beer fest/crawl with friends. Vibe was a bit faux-Irish bar but frankly I was expecting less due to location. We were quite comfortable and service was rather good.
As mentioned, there were no stouts on tap so we had to "make do" with the bottle selections which were quite lovely. The Schlafly Impy Stout listed on the menu was, sadly, out of stock, but we made it work.
I'd stop in again next time in the area. It's no Rattle n Hum but it's pretty good.

Stout NYC is my go to spot in the Madison Square Garden area. I stopped in this weekend prior to the Duke vs. St. Johns game on Sunday.
The bar opened at 11:00 and was quickly packed. We were able to grab a table right near the bar with waitress service which was a godsend. Stout is huge, but laid out kind of quirky. Downstairs is large as well, but it's not always open.
Otherwise, the bar is decorated in a modern take on the typical Irish pub. There are about 30 taps which have a decent amount of stouts available with a decent amount of other beers on tap, but nothing mind blowing. The bottle list is long, but undistinguished as well. They also have a monthly featured brewery on tap. This month was Goose Island. I ended up having a few pints of Left Hand Milk Stout and one pint of Goose Island IPA.
The food is usually pretty good, although I didn't eat this time, and the prices are a touch high, but it's in a touristy part of Manhattan, so I can't really complain.
All in all, Stout is a good place for a few pints and a burger before any event at the Garden.
