Oasis of an Irish Pub

This place is a hidden gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you walk in the door, you can't help but feel good. The pub is decorated in a railroad theme, with lots of Irish railroad memorabilia that's actually pretty interesting. It consists of two bars connected by a longer room reminiscent of a railroad dining car. There are lots of nooks and crannies, a fireplace, and just a really warm and co... view more

Had a great time

I and some friends stopped by after work for some food and drinks..I had expected a regular pub but was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant size and outdoor space, we ordered drinks which was very well priced for a hotel bar and ordered food from the menu(hamburgers, chicken fingers, sliders, potato skins and chips with a homemade cheese sauce..the food took a while to arrive (approx 20 minutes)this could be attri... view more

Patio hot spot!

This place is a great find, hidden away inside a hotel I would never normally go in to, but just having moved to the UN area I was looking for somewhere local to hang out and relax.  The inside of the pub itself is OK, but the real gem is an amazing patio at the back of the hotel which you wouldn't know was there unless you walked through the pub and out the back.  We saw their sign on 44th Street last weekend during... view more

Flawed fundamentals of innkeeping derail this train-themed pub

Factual rundown of lunch hour experience at Wheeltapper Pub, picked because of its convenient location, just east of Grand Central:\r 1. It's 1 PM on a sunny weekday; the place is more than 3/4 empty.\r 2. Friend and I order drinks. Mine's a martini, straight up. No brand specified, so it's a ""well"" drink. The cocktail arrives at room temperature and, as I find out later, is priced at $10 --elsewhere the price... view more

nice atmosphere, decent food and drinks, expensive, resentful waitress

Went out with a couple of coworkers a few weeks ago and got rowdy, doing namebrand shots (which turned out to be $10 a piece, yikes!). We were sitting outside, which was actually nice even in cold weather due to the heat lamps. The outside waitress was decent, but it was busy so drinks came a little slower than we would've liked (had to do the whole ""order two drinks at a time"" thing in order to not be waiting fo... view more

I confirm what Katie Wrote

I was part of the group that did our draft there and actually spoke to management prior to our event. I was lied to and the service couldn't be worse. They should fire their staff because they are rude and hostile. We were a work group of business professionals and explained to them 3 times what the event was prior to arriving. There were only 2 other patrons in the bar at the time and they couldn't care less. i gues... view more

Stay far FAR away

This was the worse dining experiance I have had in NYC. We were a large group of 30 doing our football draft. We spoke with management 3 seperate times asking if they could accomidate us of which they said absolutely. When we arrived they placed us in a small area, we asked to turn down the music so we could hear and we were told ""this is not a library."" Later on the US open was on in the 5th set and the barten... view more

Head for Grand Central and pass this place by....

So you are thinking of going to the Wheeltapper. Well it has great ambience with all its vintage train memorabilia and the back patio is very pleasant. The service was also good and staff friendly. However we have all heard of midtown sticker shock and this place takes the cake. For example an order of simple pub food dish like potato skins was $14.00 for 3 potato skins. Thats right 3 potato halves. Someone in the ki... view more

Worst Irish Pub in Manhattan

Went to The Wheeltapper Pub with some colleagues after work. The beer selection was solid but the service and attitude of the wait staff was terrible. The beers and food were overpriced, and the food was average at best. The manager and bartender were rude and unprofessional. After spending over $1000 on food and drink (large group) they were still charging us for glasses of water at the end of the night! With s... view more

Worst Customer Service

I went to lunch on a Wednesday with a group of employees. After waiting for our lunch for an hour, we asked someone who worked there (managemnt) how much longer we'd have to wait for lunch since we needed to get back to the office. The flippant answer that we received was that it was our fault for ordering a well done burger and steak sandwhich, that apparently takes 45 mins to cook. Funny, considering that I had... view more
