Stopped for dinner on our way to Time Warner Cable Arena before a concert. A short walk to the arena makes this restaurant very convenient. Did not have to wait long to be seated. Extremely loud music which is okay if you're gearing up for a concert like we were. Average food choices. Average prices. Have no reason not to return for another meal.

Thank you for providing feedback on your recent experience at Fitzgerald's. I am so glad you were able to stop in before heading to a concert at Time Warner Cable Area. Justin Timberlake? Things do get a little loud in there before big concerts, but that is just because everyone is having such a great time! I do wish the food got a little more than average rating, but I hope that you will return and try something else that will blow you away!

We didn't eat here..just stopped in for a couple drinks. Very nice bar and friendly staff. At night the place turns into a night club with music and dj's.

Is there a way to give negative stars? We chose this place because it seemed like a nice quiet place to chill and talk. At first, that's exactly what we got. Our server was pleasant and quick with the drinks. She left about 15 minutes after we sat down, however, and things turned awful.

We were harassed by 3 different homeless people for money. Granted, it's not Fitzgerald's fault that homeless people come up to people sitting on their patio. However, they didn't take an active role in getting the homeless people to leave until one actually went into the bar. They care about themselves not being bothered and not the customers sitting on the patio.

Around 1am we were told it was last call and asked by a bartender if we wanted another drink. By 1:10 our tabs were all closed but we remained on the patio talking and finishing our last call drinks. As with all drinking, we took turns going into the bar to use the restroom. At 1:30am we were told that we couldn't go in and out of the bar (even to use the restroom). At 1:45 we were told by a bartender that the bar closes at 1:30 and the sign in the window and google (which both say the bar closes at 2am) haven't been right "for a long time." The entire time this was going on, the bartenders were sitting inside at the bar with a "friend" watching us. They were rude every time we used the restroom. They were rude about us being on the patio. They were rude about picking up our glassware from the patio. At 1:55am they apparently got sick of waiting for us to leave and we watched as the bartenders ran up the street with the friend they were sitting at the bar with to make last call at another bar (which they told us they wanted to do earlier in the night). The staff here do not care about this place or the perception their actions leave with the customers. I wouldn't go back to this place if they were giving out $100 bills with every beer (which was only slightly above room temperature btw). There are far too many better options uptown to waste your time at a place that does not care about your business.

Went to Fitzgerald's for a pre-concert meal and drinks. It was very busy afternoon with a radio station feed and D-jay but the staff seemed to be prepared to handle the crowd. Very fun atmosphere.
We were told it would take about an 1.5hours to secure a table to eat, but were called in just 20 mins.
Menu has a nice variety of appetizers, salad, sliders, sandwiches, and heavier meals. My friend had the fish and chips and really enjoyed it. I had the strawberry salad-large portion, delicious!
Others with us had an appetizer platter of fried pickles, zucchini, etc.-loved it.

Had it not been raining we would have really enjoyed the outdoor seating areas.
Very conveniently located to the arena with several parking garages nearby.

Hi Lynn,

Thanks so much for leaving feedback on your recent experience at Fitzgerald's. I am so glad you and your friends decided to stop in before the Bruce Springsteen concert. That is always a very busy time for us with our proximity to the area. We strive to provide great food and service to make sure you have the ultimate pre-concert experience, so I am glad to hear we were able to deliver on this. I hope that you will return after all of these april showers pass for some fun on the patio!

Ate outside on the patio on a Friday night before the Bobcats game. Loved the atmosphere. Very cute and fun place. Kids meals come with a good portion of food. Location is great. Check their website for a free appetizer offer!
