Popped in during a baking hot summers day and were promptly brought an ice cold beer and some sugar filled pick-me-ups. The deep fried Oreos are to die for. Delicious.

Got chicken tenders as appetizer and a burger as entree. Very big portion for chicken tenders and pretty good food. Burger was also quite good; fries could have been better though. They were quite soft and were lacking flavor. Staff was friendly but not super...More

This place cares nothing about customer service. It is over priced, loud and dingy. They wouldn't honour coupons from Google Offers and seemed to make up the rules and fine print as they saw fit rather than what was on paper. It was a Saturday...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
