Best Irish Pub in Manhattan

Being from Pittsburgh and of Irish heritage I stopped in to O'Lunney's one evening after seeing a broadway show, The bartender (who was Irish) recommended the bangers and mash. It was the best I've had! And being Irish myself, I've had many bangers (Irish sausages) in my lifetime. I liked the servers and the atmosphere so much I went back every night after seeing a show. The bartender poured my drink on the second night without even asking. I will recommend this pub to anyone. I will stop in to Emmett O'Lunney's everytime I get to NYC! BEST Irish Pub in NYC.

Great Place for after the Theater

Went to see Wicked and was hungry after the play. Stopped in O'Lunney's, as first time visitors and were impressed by the fact they were still serving food after 11:00pm!!! Our dinners were terrific. The service was very friendly and the Guinness was a ""perfect pour."" We would certainly recommend O'Lunney's to anyone in this area.

Simply fabulous staff and a great atmosphere

Emmett's has become our anchor whenever we are in NY! Close to all the tourist stuff, but staffed by people who actually care. The pot roast is an absolute joy on a cold winters day. The Guinness is as good as anywhere on the planet. I have NEVER had a bad meal or bad service in this bar. On our last day in NY (17th Dec 09), the owner thanked us for our business and gave us a drink on the house..........not everywhere in NY demonstrates that kind of customer care. So for Tommy and Lorna here in Scotland, it's nothing but the highest recommendation for the people, the drink and the food of Emmett O'Lunney's. I hope it remains our first port of call in NY for many years to come. Can't recommend it highly enough. Cheers guys!

Exceeded our expectations

Our party of eight stopped in after a Broadway play on 11/12/09 and were delighted with the experience.

Those of us who ordered Irish specialties were very pleased with the quality and quantity of the dishes. Those who chose the salmon (catch of the day recommended by the host) said it was about the best they ever had.

Our server was very cheery, helpful and attentive.

Given that it's in the tourist-y theater district, we were somewhat apprehensive, but we would definitely go there again! Highly recommended.

Irish corn beef in cabbage, but they have a TACO SALAD?

I was a little confused by the mix of decorations, it's Time Square what do you expect I guess.

The owner was annoying to both us and his staff.

Emmett O'Lunney's--A Fine Irish Restaurant & Bar

I took my son to a Magic Show at the Snapple Theatre on Broadway & 50th Street this evening and decided to go for a walk afterwards and then we decided we wanted to get some dinner. In our travels, we arrived back at 50th Street and Broadway and saw this gorgeous bar and restaurant which we had passed before...""Emmett O'Lunney's"" we decided to go in and give it a try.
My son ordered a hamburger and fries with a Sprite and I ate a Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad with a ginger ale. It was a great dinner. The service was fabulous. We were seated right away when we came in even though it was at the peak of dinner time. I loved the Irish decor, having Irish roots, this bar & restaurant make you feel like you are back in Ireland.
The owner, Emmett O'Lunney is a great person as well--he makes you feel right at home. I wish the owner lots of luck with his establishment!
If you are ever in New York & you need a warm & friendly restaurant to pick up your spirits---come to Emmett O'Lunney's!

Best Pub in NYC

Emmett O'Lunney's is a awesome Irish pub! Great Irish style pub and the staff is wonderful.
Great service, delicious food, and reasonably priced drinks for being right in Times Square!! The owner is great guy and the bartenders are very friendly! We tell everyone that we know to go visit O'Lunney's when the go to the city. Next time your in NYC stop by and you will have just as much fun as we do!
We visit everytime we go to the city. The second time we went into the pub the owner and the bartender knew our names and what you wanted to drink, you can't beat that for being out of towners!

Thanks Cabs and Emmett for everything!
WE ARE..............

saved our evening

My friends and I wandered in to this Irish tavern when we didn't win the Wicked lottery and immediately were glad we did. We were greeted by a nice lady and shown to the bar.The bar lady Kat? was friendly and kept the laughs coming.We had some good burgers and beers and stayed to watch the yankees game.Later we watched Phelps win his 7th gold and we has a blast! Awesome place.We will be back.

Great food and atmosphere plus real friendly staff

I went to this place to help the owner reprogram his hi-tech lighting control system, which was necessary because of the recent renovation. I decided to have lunch there while working on my MacBook. I ordered the calamari for appetizer (huge serving!) and a plain burger with fries and coleslaw on the side. The food tasted really fresh. The staff was very courteous and friendly also. The renovations worked really well to make the place cozy and relaxing. The owner was even kind enough to offer my lunch on the house (as gratitude for my help). I would have gladly paid for the meal as I enjoyed my lunch so well. I'll be making this place a regular stop for myself whenever I'm working in the area.

Neverending renovation

I go to this place a lot or used to anyway. It's in a great location close to my office but what is going on with the neverending renovation?? It's just annoying. Get it over with already!
Also, the waitstaff used to be consistently good and attentive before but I can't say that from my recent visits there.
