GREAT SERVICE!!! – Great, great, great service. Nice looking ladies to boot which is always a plus. Bartender greeted us on arrival and our waitress was extremely attentive. Kudos to these guys with another smash hit. Anxious to go to their new beer bar joint down the street. When I heard these were the same brains behind Scruffy's I had to try it out. Dined there Thursday night after a show. Wings and beer did not let us down! If only there were an underground tunnel from there to Port Authority! Will definitely return.
Terrible Service – On Saturday afternoon November 14th, between 1-5 pm, a large group of us went to Lansdowne Rd to celebrate my brother's bachelor party. We received the worst service any of us could ever remember. The waitress was a young woman with short brown hair and terrible attitude, serving our table against the wall towards the front of the bar, right before the bathrooms. A few examples: when my brother told her to surprise him with a drink selection, she retorted "I don't have time for that" and rolled her eyes. When we tried to ask for something simple such as silverware, mustard or ketchup, she ignored us and walked right by; we then obtained these from the bar, and when she finally stopped to ask what we needed, we told her not to worry and that we got what we needed from the bar. Her only concern then was whether or not it was a drink. On several occasions she refused to help us narrow a selection of beers when we asked the differences about the beers; "just pick what you want," she retorted. Another example: one of my friends beers was not finished but she took it away anyway; when he began to say something, she just walked away.
Because we had a large group of people, gratuity was included; otherwise we would have left less than $1, as the service was that terrible and she was so rude. I would like to emphasize that we were not drunk and rowdy, as we were only there to watch the games and "pregame" for the rest of my brother's party. I kept the receipt as I thought it would have her name on it, but under server it only said "bar." For the several hundred dollars we poured into this bar that day, I would expect to have better service - this waitress should be fired. I promised myself to write a negative review, and I didn't forget that promise. I will never go to this bar again.
THE PLACE is OK, THE atmosphere SUCKS – I used to go to this place with lot's of my friends for the most part the place and the food is Ok. Unlike most city places the staff is pretty kool. OUR one peeve is the freaking manager DJ AM. for some reason he thinks people show up to listen to him play DJ. People go there to watch the game, we don't need him putting music on between commercials. I enjoy the commercials, i enjoy the pre game talk. I don't go to a bar on football sunday or monday night to listen to music. SO SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL DJ AM to STOP PLAYING MUSIC DURING or BEFORE GAMES.
UNTIDY OWNER – i tried this place a few times after work.. the staff is very nice but the food is awful. id rather eat my foot than eat there again.. the owner bought us a drink which i tought was nice. but we were sorry he did cause he was smoothering us at our table.. he always seems unshaven and unclean we could get passed that if there wasnt such a sour milk smell off him.. if i was to go back again i think id call ahead to make sure he wasnt there though..
Great place for sports/after-work – I recently moved out of hells kitchen and am missing this place. Probably some of the best times I've had at a bar in NYC were the three playoff weekends incl. superbowl when the Giants dominated. This bar was rocking! The owner/DJ kicks on the music during the commericials which is very street-savvy. The owner/bartenders/waitresses are all very friendly and have great Irish service! Love the towers and the food is very good.
Great bar, great customer service, bartenders, food, and dj. – i've been going here for over a year. The only one I don't like is the new waitress Christine, who's unfriendly and rude. Everyone else is very cool, and I'd highly recommend this establishment.
great neighborhood bar – I love this place -- great for watching sports and DJ Ben rocks! The food is good, and all of the servers are very friendly.
Great neighborhood sport with great music! – I live in the neighborhood and sometimes go here on the weekends. The staff is really cool, the food is good, and the dj rocks!!!! Great spot.
Weak drinks – A nice atmosphere and staff but quite possibly the weakest drinks in New York...and that's saying something. When your $200.00 bill comes and you have not even a buzz, you know you've had expertly watered down drinks. Cannot recommend this place unless you're a DUI risk.
Bridge and Tunnel Best-Kept Secret – I'm part of a weekly Wednesday drinking group of 30 or so regulars who love to drink, geek out, talk and eat after work. We check out a different bar each week. We've been kicking around the city for 12 years. In that time we've visited several hundred bars (with repeats of faves). I dub Lansdowne Road a Bridge and Tunnel paradise, however, that's not a terrible thing. It's undiscovered by the hordes of Jersey bar trippers. It's so dubbed because the B&T crowd would love this place for its hometown bar feel. It's certainly near enough the Lincoln Tunnel, the beer selection is good, the Irish pub grub is decent and the place has plenty of room for a group to spread out. Another plus, parking isn't too hard to find.
