Stopped in right before the afternoon rush hour. Pretty large place, with high ceilings, mostly irish pub dacor, has upstairs seating. The bartender was friendly and quick with a pour.
The selection is pretty average, it looks like they have a lot of taps, but upon further review, there are 2 sets of taps, both with the same beers. (brooklyn, sam, SNPA, the guniness family beers, bluepoint, yuengling) 2 cask lines (had the bluepoint whiskey rye). Didn't try the food but it was mostly your typical irish pub food. Bottle selection is mostly UK, US, Belgian, German, again nothing here that you go to seek out, but can probably satisfy any taste.
For being close to Penn Station its not that bad, other than that there are much better beer bars in the near area and prices are pretty much in line with the rest of 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.
