Went in for lunch the other day to meet a friend for lunch. Well, she cancelled and I had lunch on my own. The wait staff was very welcoming and soon I wasn't feeling alone at all. Food was delicious and priced right. I'll def be going back again and again.
Bucket of Blood! – A sorry lot of burn outs, wet brains and violent phyco's make up most of the cast.
Good place to lose your teeth.
Enter at your own risk.
Outstanding bar and not NYC Max$$$$ – Outstanding local bar who welcomed 2 MA (Boston) residents without fanfare and B.S. Bartenders Tom and Owen are great and will make you feel right at home..Prices not even close to crazy max $$$$ NYC can be...Recommend this establisment to one and all...
Best Night – So a friend of mine told me I had to go to Cassidy's, so I did. got there about 1:30-2a. I sat down to have a beer at the bar and the bartender was an amazing person. Ray I believe. Met some pretty nice people there and had a blast. Ray made sure I could get back to the hotel okay and I really want to go back and have another great experience. Yet another bar I closed down in NYC :)
Yummy Lunch in Midtown – My girlfriend's and I were at Cassidy's yesterday and had the juiciest burger I believe that I have ever had!!! The service was friendly and efficient. It is the go to place in Midtown for lunch. We will be back for Happy Hour this evening for sure. I heard there were Great HH Specials !!
Maybe I will have another burger !!! Yum!!
Have to give it an overall "meh" – Had read some rave reviews, and so decided to give Cassidy's a try for lunch. Couldn't find much to "rave" about, though. The atmosphere was dark and chilly, with a dank smell of stale beer. The burger I ordered seemed indifferently made - the accompanying lettuce, tomato and raw onion looked tired, and the meat was dry (which was surprising, since they seem to pride themselves on "juicy burgers.") The fries were hot and nice, though.
Service was initially as cold as the bar, but warmed up a bit towards the end. Ultimately, this struck me as the kind of place that works best if you keep your expectations low, bring friends, and drink a lot of beer. Since I can't often do that in the middle of a workday, I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.
excellent food and great staff – my girlfriend and i came down from florida for a week vacation as we where walking threw mid-town new york we spotted this irish bar so we deceided to go in and try it and i have to say we where well happy with the out come the food was great very enjoyable and cheep so not like most manhattan bars and resturants which are over priced and i must say the staff where all very friendly and helpfull so if your looking for nice food friendly staff and good beer i would strongly suggest u goto cassidys.
Great times – My wife and I spent a couple of very enjoyable hours here over Christmas, we went for lunch and ended up having a couple of drinks at the bar afterwards. The food was excellent ( we had fish & chips and chicken pot-pie, enough to feed an army !), the waitstaff were warm and funny, full of Irish charm and the prices were very reasonable for midtown.
NASTY WAIT STAFF...DECENT FOOD!!! – I would have given this place 5 stars if the Irish waitresses were not such rude nasty sloths!!!! We walked in and my friends kid was crying a little. The one waitress who was on her personal phone looked over and gave us a nasty look like kids arent suppose to cry or something. I asked her if there was a problem with the kid crying and she ignored me. Once we got our waitress she was not as bad. Not overly friendly, but not nasty snob. The food was great and came out quick. My wife said the reuben was the worst she has ever had, so i dont recommend it. Its a good place if you want some beers and some greasy food. Again, I want to mention the staff were nasty. They were all Irish and not friendly at all.
Best burgers in midtown! – This is a good place for locals and travelers. The staff is efficient, courteous and sober most of the time, and you are made to feel welcome. If you are a regular, however, be prepared for an old menu and specials, with the same few things rotating in and out. Specials even include actual menu items, and the same price. The quality of the food is exceptional, however, especially the potato leek soup (rarely available anymore), burgers, seafood risotto and fish & chips.
I think they've missed the point on the specials - something new would make me eat there more often!The kitchen staff is quite talented, and it would be nice to see some variety in the daily specials. They have karaoke on Fridays, led by some crazy guy called hacksaw or chainsaw, and that is generally my cue to exit on Friday night. A genuine nutter.
This is also a good place to watch a game without the usual sports bar mentality and crowd.
Overall very enjoyable
