Don't miss the burger specials – I go here for lunch & afterwork drinks and have never been disappointed and so was shocked to see the bad review. One thing we do agree on is the good food at reasonable prices but I disagree on the service, its a busy place so the staff don't get much time for chit chat but I've always been treated pleasantly, also their burger is one of the best in the city
Good food. Indifferent staff. – Not a bad place. The food is generally good and portions are generous. TVs are a bit loud for conversation. It's always crowded at lunch time and after work. One exception to the overall 'goodness' of the place is the staff. The waitresses are indifferent and not very friendly, without actually being surly. The evening bar staff, however, can best be described as lacking in personality and, on occasion, outright rude. One evening I misheard the cost of our round and when I questioned what the bartender had said she replied with a snide, overly pronounced "Thhhhhirty" as if I were an idiot who was unable to understand her thick Irish brogue. I've run into similar issues of attitude with bartenders there before as well. Co-workers who also go to Cassidy's agree about the staff. We still keep going though because the nearby location and good food outweigh the bad. Also, not a lot of reasonable alternatives in the area.
Butch would love this place!!! – If Jayzus was around, he'd have the " Last Supper " here, that's if he had any room left after murdering a few pints!!
Great Midtown Bar – Great Staff, Great Drinks, Great food. Its your typical irish pub with midtown clientele and a nice vibe.
i work in the area and go to cassidy's pretty often for lunch. the food is consistantly good and the staff are quite nice. i don't understand the negatives listed about them below, but i think tourists think we're all rude. recommended.
User review by yukster11 – This is an Irish Pub that appears to gear towards more of a tourist crowd with their somewhat close proximity to Times Square. There are several TV's around the bar, but none are very large. Prices are reasonable, $4.50 for a bottle of Coors Light, and the staff is friendly. They have Karaoke nights at 10:00 on Fridays. The bathrooms are in decent shape. It's located a few blocks away from any other bars so it seems to be a place for hotel guests to finish off a night in NYC than a place where you'd want to have a few drinks and stay for a while
A Must Try! – My girlfriend and I visited New York for a girls trip and we were lucky to have been staying accross the street from Cassidy's. Even though we ate our way through the city, (and happy everywhere we tried), Cassidy's was a place we ended up (3) times in 5 days. Every day we went, we tried something new and loved it. Sheppard's Pie, and Fish and Chips are a must try. As most people in New York the help was pleasant but not anything more until we warmed the Irish waitress up who we then enjoyed an hour conversation with. I felt like it was a warm place away from the fast moving hustle and bustle of the city.
User review by sabby13 – a group of us came into the city for xmas shopping/birthday celebration and wanted to start our trip in off right and thought a pub with a decent beer selection would be a good start. so we hit cassidy's. we walked in and nobody would seat us. we were rudely told to sit down after we approached someone 10 min. later. the service was miserable. our drinks were thrown on the table and when we asked for a drink menu, we were told to turn around and look at the bar. the food was fabulous. the service left alot to be desired, but everything else was amazing.
Great Lunch and Service – After a long day of shopping it was a good place for my husband to catch the game and relax. It was not a typical bar-white linenes and attentive service. Typical Irish food was very good and a good value-large portions. Patrons were a mix of adults and kids. Wood return for lunch again. Excellent location off of 5th Ave shopping.
Editorial Review – Midtown pub featuring full Irish-American menu, plus 14 beers on tap, bottled beers, wine and cocktails.
