While collecting theatre tickets, we asked about local Irish bars and were given a card for McHale's.
We received a very warm welcome from the young barmaid. Colette, who originated from Northern Ireland. It was a delight to be served by her and she treated her regulars and tourists alike, with the same charm and "craik".
The "gantry" was extensive and my husband enjoyed the wheat beer as well as the Guinness.
We enjoyed the experience so much that we returned another day and were welcomed like long lost family. We were even given a wedge of birthday cake of one of "the regulars".
Colette is a real asset to this Irish bar. I do hope the licencee acknowledges and appriciates this for without her, it would be just another Irish bar in Manhattan.

We arrived in NYC on Wednesday, April 30th to see the play Wicked. It had to be one of the worst weather days with pouring rain and wind. We ran to McHale's for lunch and a place to relax prior to the matinee show. What a great place and location. Beautiful interior, wonderul staff and food. We were celebrating my mom's 82nd birthday and they brought her out a wonderful dessert (much to her surprise)! After seeing the amazing show, we ran back over to Mc Hales until t was time to meet our bus for home. We passed the time with wicked Appletinis. I would definitely recommend Mc Hales for pre-show and post show or anytime. We loved it!

We just sort of 'happened' on this place....we didn't think we'd have time for a meal before the theater but turns out - we did. I had the mac and cheese, my date had the Irish Shepherd's Pie and we had cold beer with it...food was really tasty, service was swift and attentive. Place was clean, prices were decent....bathrooms were clean....and hearty portions, too! Looking for a good meal before the theater or maybe just a cold beer? Here's your place.
