John Lennon used to go here. Today is an old fashioned dinner. Although it is located in the most visited neighborhood in NYC, it´s not overcrowded. Hamburgers are OK (the bun would be better). Service is great.

Food was great. Not super a super friendly staff but they were attentive. Food came out fast, plates were cleared fast and drinks were refilled fast. Prices were typical NYC. Great place to watch the game. Several T V's
