Food was good. Reasonably priced for a restaurant in the Theater District. Very crowded which made it loud. Once the theater crowd left for their matinees it made conversation a lot easier.

the people serving us were fantastic, courteous as can be. The food was great! My turkey burger fantastic my wife's salad fantastic. My one criticism was that it was too noisy because of the sports TVs. I would rather that the restaurant part had no TV and the TVs were just in the bar.

Food is consistently good, and the staff is very accommodating to allergies. Great for pre-theater meals. Great value for the money in Times Square. Also has an elevator in case you are on crutches or dining with the disabled/elderly.

It was just the perfect spot for a lunch before the theater. It was not loud and it was dark and cool on a hot, sunny day in NYC. The menu was varied and our choice turned out to be a special - $16. Could not beat that ! Loved it and will return.

I'm happy with my choice of Connolly's Pub for our pre show dinner. We had the specials of crab cakes and lobster wraps and were happy with our choices.

Incredibly fast service. Quality of food was excellent on some dishes and so so on others. For example, the smoked salmon appetizer was superb and the burger was pretty good and the Cobb salad was exceptional. However the calamari was not so good. Drinks were fine, but a bit overpriced for a pub.

Was very upset with our table. The restaurant was crowded and there was only one table available and it was nest the kitchen entrance. We left and went to the competition next door.

It was beautiful weather day which made it
perfect for rooftop dining. Service was great and service very good. Only bad thing was elevator was not working to go up so we had to walk the 4 flights. Did work on the way down though.

Friendly staff and we were greeted, seated promptly with our open table reservation. Typical NYC pricing; really delicious and fresh salads! Beautiful wood trim throughout the downstairs. Noisy as you would expect in a pub, but still were able to converse in a normal voice at our table.

We ordered a couple of drinks (beer and cocktail) and the Irish beef stew and shepherd's pie. Everything was great and the food not only came quickly but was piping hot. Love it! The server recommended the chocolate chip lava cake and she was right. It is quite rich but the chocolate lava is to die for. Service was excellent, in fact I felt they checked on us too many times. We were in and out within 50 min. If that's what you're after, before a theater performance maybe, give them a try.

Recommended by a friend but was pretty underwhelming, no real Irish charm, had run out of several of the craft beers early in the evening midweek. I'm sure there are better Irish bars in NYC.
