Just a typical casual Irish pub with mediocre food and poor service. But, I could tolerate that. The kicker was being charged for coffee refills! at $2 a cup! And, to top it off, when we asked to speak with the manager, she pretty much said, 'that's the way it's always been and if you don't like it, don't come back'. $8 is a bit rich for my blood, so I guess I won't.

Embarrassingly disappointing Eggs Benedict for brunch with soggy cold cottage fries and an overly spicy hardly-drinkable virgin mary served inappropriately in a cocktail class instead of a high ball glass. The Eggs Benedict was served on an untoasted tasteless English muffin, tepid tiny eggs, canadian bacon, bland cold sauce that had nary a hint of lemon or butter. For $14.15 plus tip a better brunch can easily be found. Funny thing, in the past the food was good, when you got it, but there was virtually no wait staff to be found.

I went in on a Monday night after my dance class, had the pasta(meat sauce, very good!) and 2 of the tallest, 20 oz., $5. Beers I really enjoyed. Sat at bar, bartender was happy to allow my GU vs. LOU game to be put on the tv close to me and I met 2 nice couples, with whom I talked with all night! Nice for a single guy/diner. One may join my dance class. Who is looking for fancy food in an Irish pub with an English address? Baker St is my choice for a good time, games, beer and food!

So let's start on the plus side. the burgers are supposedly very good, and the lobster bisque was yummy. Went on a sunday night around 9 with two girlfriends. The waitress had an attitude from the minute we sat down and wanted to chat for a few minutes before deciding what we wanted to order to eat. She was MIA for most of the meal, took forever to do the slightest tasks, and couldn't remember what we ordered, despite the fact that we were the only people in the place eating. We decided to leave her a 13% tip, which I thought was much more than she deserved. She had the nerve to ask for the bill back while we were still there, and go through the receipts to add up her tip and then say "really?! thats it?!!". She then refused to give me my leftovers that I had requested to have wrapped up about 20 minutes prior, which she conveniently forgot to give me until after she had seen her tip amount. Will never return!

Looked like a low key neighborhood joint. Went in and found it to be very lack lustre. The food is very sub par by NYC standards, the service slow with the ambiance being the only redeeming factor. The bouncer is a bit creepy and competes with the male patrons for female attention, which I thought is a little unprofessional. All in all, I wouldn't be back.

If been to Baker Street a handful of times and have not been disappointed, but not blown away either. The food is good, but it can be kind of limp as well. The food is English based so they have Bangers, Sausages and items that are floating in gravy as well as burgers and standard bar fare. It has a good relaxed vibe, and a steady stream of British sports on the "Tellys" so anyone from the other side of the Pond will feel welcome for sure. Good service and a good atmosphere, although it gets crowded and finding a spot can be tough at times. Recommended.

Hands down the best pub in the neighborhood. Beers are great, staff is even better, and the food is good too. A real pub.
