Ahhhh, McSorleys, a fine irish pub...not really. Although it is certainly worth at least one visit in your life time, it definatley does not merit a second or more visits.
Atmosphere is kischy with the fact that it is old and the floor boards are uneven, with a dirty bathroom.
Service is done by some jerks for the most part, there are plenty of nice people in the five boroughs, trust me !
Selection is light and dark, yippee !
Food is a bad attempt at bar food, you are far better off with the dollar menu at McDonalds.
Value is reasonable.
Again, go here once, just to say you did it, but if you actually like good beer and good food, no need for a second visit.

This place is simply an institution. Light or Dark are your only beer options and they are both fantastic. You don't come here for the food, just the beer and the atmosphere, both of which are top notch. This place is traditional down to the saw dust on the floor a must go to for anyone who enjoys a bar with an old style.

Pick light or dark! One of the oldest bars in NYC, McSorley's is famous for its men only policy up to 1970. Saw dust floor and relics everywhere, it's a time capsule of a by gone era. The beer comes by the fist fulls, and goes down quick. Get used to making new friends, as no chairs go unused. Unless you are a fan of cheese and onions, grab a slice before hand.
