Went here twice whilst we was in NYC. Buffalo wings, pizza burger and the buffalo burger are all amazing! Good drinks and good price, definitely worth going. Service is great too they can't do enough for you.

Looked like a fun place for a drink, walked in found a seat, waited for at least 5 min, after no one showed up to take order, just left.

Good drinks, good wings, friendly service. Had drinks here twice this past week since it was down the block from my hotel. Good bar menu (only tried the wings).

We had a little time before seeing The Front Page at the Broadhurst Theater and happened into Smith's Hell's Kitchen Bar. We had to go since it matched our last name! We grabbed a seat at the end of the bar and ordered Lagunitas at $6 a pop. The price seemed like a deal for NYC, especially since we've been... More

Fantastic place for food and also drinks. We stayed at the ROW NYC across the road. The Smiths do drinks offers mon-fri. And the food is really good and reasonably priced as New York is very expensive. We will be coming back Thanks

We were starving and did not want to wait at any of our preferred restaurants in Times Square, so we went into Smiths and were seated immediately even though it was on a crowded Saturday night. The food was good, and the service very good. The prices were reasonable, and we had a decent dinner. Definitely not a destination restaurant,... More

Was staying across the street and had breakfast here one day. Very quick, friendly service. Got their American breakfast special. Potatoes were cold. They don't have regular mustard, anywhere in the restaurant. (Just spicy brown-yech.) Odd that a place that serves burgers wouldn't have mustard. Reasonably priced for mediocre food.

Sat right at front facing onto sidewalk. Love the fact this happens as there are no flies!!! Being from Australia, eating outside can be tricky, loved the fresh air whilst dining on brekky.

We met up with friends here when we were both in NYC. The atmosphere was electric and added to our visit. The bar staff were all pleasant and served us all night with a smile. Can't praise this place enough. Even to giving us all a taste of the beer first before we chose what one we wanted, much appreciated.... More

The pub is a nice noisy pub. The food is bad, very bad even compared to other pubs in the area. Tried the burger and it was over cooked with no flavor at all. French fries were also over cooked and potatos unpealed.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
