A nice little Irish pub conveniently near Penn Station. I usually pop in here when I'm a bit too early for the train home, but it's not a regular hang out. There's a small bar, some seats, some standing room, decor is simple but robust and organic/wooden. Beer selection isn't exactly an enthusiast's dream, but it's still fairly good. Obviously there are Guinness products here, and a few other simple craft options. The food is decent, just basic pub grub for the most part. Service is fine, and prices are reasonable.

There are many better destinations in the city for beer, but again, with it's convenient location and hours, I have no problem stopping in here once in a while.

Stopped in here with a couple of friends for a quick pint last night, and not that terrible of a place. However, it's certainly not a beer bar.

The vibe of the place wasn't too bad or anything, fairly nice, updated Irish pub feel. Seemed to be kept in pretty good condition. The service was prompt and nice enough. Empty glasses were spotted quickly by the wait staff (but then again it was a slower evening).

The only highlight from the tap selection was the Goose Island IPA, which was fresh and tasted fine. The rest were the standard Newcastle, Guiness, Stella, Harp, Boddingtons, Bud, etc. lineup.

The bottle list offered only Chimay and Duvel.

Overall, not a bad place to grab a quick pint, but certainly not a beer destination.

Located on 8th Avenue, diagonally across from Madison Square Garden.

The exterior is unimpressive, and honestly doesn't look like a bar. However, upon entering, you instantly notice the abundance of wood paneling and detailed wooden fixtures and furniture.

The bar is directly in front of you upon entering and there are dining areas to both sides.

The tap list includes Guinness (pretty damn good too), Bare Knuckle Stout (called Tir Na Nog Stout), Stella, Harp, Bass, Smithwick's, etc. It is the only place I have ever been where Guinness and Bare Knuckle are served together. However, a quick taste test easy reveals the stark differences between the two.

The menu spans from pub food to full blown entrees with an Irish flare. Overall the food is pretty good.

The place attracts a large crowd on game day, so get there early. At thee times, the bar is way too crowded to really enjoy yourself.

I was very impressed with their beer selection. It's nice to see a non-Guinnes house and the freedom that brings. The draft selection ran from the basic Smithwicks and Guinness along with a few American Macros and european Macros. The bottle list included a few gems of which Chimay Roughe and Grand Reserve, and Duvel stuck out. Very much an Irish pub with imported seats and a largly imported staff. Great service. Plenty of TV's. A very nice place to pass some time over a few or to have a bit to eat. Very impressed with the house stout brewed on premisis.

Great location outside the garden, makes this a good spot before/after knicks & Ranger games, big east tourney etc. 20 taps i believe with a few too many macros, i usually quaff Guinness or Boddingtons here,maybe Hoegaarden in the summer and usually more than i should, its a fun bar usually crowded,and insane on St. Patricks Day. The food is very good, top quality upscale cuisine with an irish flair. The bartenders are all friendly if their not running their asses off. All in all a nice spot to stop in on the west side for good food, and cold guinness

1/2 block from Penn station location is a plus, good to have a decent place for that pre or post event or train ride brewski. This is a fairly small place with a highly styalized Irish theme going on. About 20 taps, but most of em were mid level macros(Stella, adnams etc) and even a few major macro "Tap wasters" (Bud...) Food menu looked a wee bit expensive. In short not much of major interest Beer wise going on here, but a so so place for a pint in a pleasant room with a friendly staff.
