my favorite burgers, and great brunch – McReilly's is a great unassuming irish pub. Plenty of good ol' american food, as well as some irish standbys. I particularly enjoy their brunch, it's a great deal and the steak and eggs is amazing - 2 huge NY strips with the eggs and some of the best home fries around. The size of the menu is impressive considering the small size of their kitchen!
Good food, for a pub. Drink nice beer for pretty cheap. – It's the neighborhood joint. Chances are, your pretty waitress is from Ireland and has a lovely accent, too.
The food is good. The crabcakes and, oddly enough, if you get a choice of veg with your meal, the broccoli is always well-cooked. The mashed potatoes are fresh and garlicky, too.
great neighborhood pub – every nabe needs a place like this - friendly service, cheap tasty generous grub, decent jukebox, good drink. one of the best burgers in nyc.
Honest Irish comfort food, and the beers to go with it. – The Scene
With Neil Diamond on the jukebox and Sanka to pair with dessert, no one's claiming this is the hippest joint in town. But that doesn't deter its steady stream of devoted regulars. Half restaurant, half bar and all around cozy, this place is staffed by lovely bartenders--made lovelier by their sassy Irish accents. The bar's especially welcoming in winter, when the wooden booths, Irish coffees and seasonal decor warm you like a pair of mittens.
Pub-style starters like wings and potato skins complement a pint any time of day. And while the menu offers burgers, soups and salads, the Irish dishes beckon. Favorites are satisfying standbys like the mixed grill, fish and chips and meatloaf special. The shepherd's pie lacks a certain richness in its gravy and the bangers and mash could use a finer sausage, but who's complaining? The prices make it easy to eat, drink and be merry.
Relaxed, Great Bartenders – Great burgers, chill atmosphere, and a welcoming, all-female staff. Can get very crowded, but they always find a way to accomodate people. This is not for those who are looking for a scene (though most looking for a scene don't venture off Manhattan anyway). It's for those who like to hang out for hours with friends or a date and drink Guiness, eat inexpensive (but good and hearty) food, mess around with the juke box and chat with the bartenders (Anne, Frances and Bernadette are all really nice)
Not Bad – Authentic and relaxing pub for the most part and the food is good... One of the top-ten burgers in NY I'd say. But aside from the food, there's not much else of a draw.
