“great fish and chips”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

We were looking for somewhere to eat and saw fish and chips on the menu and decided to try it out. It was a good choice! The waitress was Irish and very friendly. The food was excellent, They have a great selection of beers. It does not look like much from the outside,just a bar full of people but if you go right to the back it is much quieter and cooler.

“The Tourist”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Simply a place that does not overcharge. My fellow visitors and I, sightseeing in midtown, had great burger, she a chicken avocado salad, great service, and a tremendous choice of IPA craft beers. Visitors and tourists we're welcomed, while we sat for dinner, I guess that's their business, a place that gets it.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed 27 March 2013 via mobile

Met friends here, as well as having something to eat around St Patricks Day. Food was lovely and the place had a great atmosphere. The staff are truly great - it's worth a visit, especially as it is only a stone's throw from The Empire State Building.

“A PEOPLE PLACE”
Reviewed 20 March 2013 via mobile

Great bar that we found by accident on the way somewhere else. All sorts there from actors to politicians to ex pats. Mark & Teresa made you feel like family. Food was great. Chicken wings / full Irish breakfast / soup. At different times were all served piping hot with a smile. Drinks were explained to me & samples given by a bar owner who knows how to deal with the public. Communication & a smile. I'd meet anyone here. It's a people place

“Excellent Irish Bar”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

We stopped in Nelly's for breakfast and were immediately greated with "Hello Lads" from Mark, one of the proprietors of this fine establishment.
4 of us ordered our meals and were treated to a very friendly & accommodating staff not to mention an excellent breakfast at a resonable price.
The atmosphere was like the genuine article in Ireland and we WILL BE BACK!
Thanks Mark....we love your place!
