Made a last minute reservation. Arrived early and our table was ready and we could be seated earlier. We had a large group of 7. The service was excellent and the food was great. Good selection of food and beverage choices. Will visit when I come back to New York.

our family has been dining at o’lunney’s times square pub for years. it is a good option for pre-theater, they keep things moving along and we have always been in time for our shows. i am a bit disappointed in their changing some of the items that we favored on their menu for years and eliminating others so it is not “first pick” for some of our family now. the food is still good but we always looked forward to certain items that are unavailable now.

O'Lunney's has become a regular meet-up spot with friends when we want to have lunch. The staff is friendly and capable, the food is good, and the ambiance is pleasant. I go at a quiet time after the theatre crowd has gone and sit for hours catching up with friends. Lovely place. Lovely people.

We reserved a table so we could be sure to get to the theatre on time. We had no problems. I had a lovely fresh salad, my sister had the omelet and fries (how very British), and my husband had the beef stew. All of it was delicious. Our server was attentive and nice to talk to. I kept trying to imagine the place on St. Pat's Day.... I'll bet it is crazy!

The waiter was very accommodating however the food was mediocre and ambiance was just OK. I would not give it a high rating but also not a bad rating.

Not visited for a few years, but not as busy as it has been in the past. Maybe just a one off or have people moved on?
Food was ok, beer the gas was wrong? Whatever that means, but was swapped & then ok.
Food just ok really. Atmosphere just not busy.

My friend and I had shrimp ceviche with a glass of Prosecco. For dinner she had fish and chips and I had the corned beef Rueben. Service was great. We had plenty of time to get to our show.

The food was good but our waiter probably could have cared less that we were there. Not very attentive. Sat us back by the kitchen even though most of the dining room was empty. I understand Jain game to give tables fairly to waiters but there were other places they could have sat us

The booth we were placed in was very awkward. The seats were very far from the table. No way to push the two booths closer to the table. This cause only one side of the party to be able to eat comfortably.

Perfect for before the theater dinner dining. It's quiet which is rare so I could actually hear my friend which we both appreciated. The waitress was terrific all our needs were met with a good spirit.

Our meal was really good and very reasonable. I was so happy that I discovered O'Lunney's and will be back every time I'm in the area. I especially look forward to having your Irish breakfast.

Thank you for a fine experience.

Went here after seeing a play. A very nice place had reservations and I was seated upon arrival. The section I was in was empty just two other couples and we were seated right next to one of them it would have been nice to have a table or two between us. Ordered the nachos for an appetizer and for dinner my wife ordered the reuben sandwich I had the fish & chips. No long wait on the food and when it came out it was excellent. My wife Reuben sandwich was huge and looked good my fish and chips was also excellent tasty and cooked to perfection. Only mistake was the waiter brought me the wrong dinner he first brought out some chicken wrap but other when that food was excellent, would definitely recommend, and would definitely go back.

We really enjoyed our time here. We just arrived into NYC late and needed a good place to eat near Times Square. This was the perfect place for us. We ordered traditional Irish food and it was really good but the service was excellent!! Thanks for a great experience!

We chose O’Lunney’s for the location close to the theaters. We wanted drinks and food before our show. It did not disappoint. The buffalo wings were cooked to perfection and had an excellent taste. We also had the pepperoni pizza which was delicious. Service was friendly and well timed.

We had a very nice pre-show meal - the restaurant was very close to Lion King. We made reservations for 5pm for a 7pm show and ended up being finished by 6pm. They weren't very busy, so they didn't seem to mind that we sat and waited til 6:30pm. Varied menu, my teenagers had the steak sandwich, I had the chicken sandwich special, and my husband had the Irish Stew. All were very tasty - everyone was please with their choice. It was a 5 minute walk (at most) to the Minkoff Theater for our show. Service was very good as well.

Great atmosphere - great menu. Prices were decent for a restaurant in Time Square. Ambiance was great. One of the guests in our party ordered a steak that was rather small for the price ( 8 oz). However all other food was delicious. Large beer selection for those who drink . Waiter was very professional. Great spot , and NOT crowded.

O'Lunney's is a definite repeat restaurant for us. If we would have had more time, we would have eaten there twice on this trip. The grilled salmon was cooked perfectly! The cheesecake makes all others seem like something out of the frozen food section at Dollar General - it was outstanding. Servers couldn't have been more helpful and attentive at just the right times.

My first time there and the food was very good. Service was great as well. Waiter made choices that much easier. Highly recommend. While I didn't get the high table like I requested, I was fine with seating arrangements.
