If you want beers and drinks, this pub I’m sure is excellent. If you want some simple food, continue reading. We're complete tourist in NY and needed something quick to eat on a late Sunday (19ish). Sat down in an almost completely empty restaurant (1 other couple, that already looked upset). An empty restaurant should have warned me this is not an eating place, but we were very hungry. The waitress was friendly and quick for order and beverages. I ordered smoked salmon for starter and the philly steak for dinner. My wife got french onion soup for starter and seafood mix for dinner. Out of these 4 (simple!) dishes only 1 actually passed the bar being acceptable and that was the smoked salmon (it's real hard to fail it though, a bed of salad and a few slices of readymade smoked salmon on top). The french soup tasted like dishwater and i wouldn't be surprised that was the main ingredient in the soup. My wife of course refused to eat it and sent it back out. Then for dinner, my wife’s mixed seafood contained fish that wasn't cooked properly. Some of her fish slices were sent out to the kitchen to be properly recooked. When it came back my wife was NOT impressed. She left the fish pieces (I’m sure it will be used for the fish soup the very next day). I got the philly cheesesteak, which in all fairness looked like a standard sandwich with meat and cheese for filling together with some fries. Hardly worth the $17 being stipulated in the menu. And sure enough, it was a standard freckin sandwich with unclassified meat and some cheese. On top of all that there were some leftover cartilage neatly embedded in it, which made me break off a piece of a tooth. For this mighty feast, were we only charged $70. Please!, save your money and go to any other place in NY or the world. Your local Subway serves much much better sandwiches and soups for a tremendously better price. As always, if no one is eating in the restaurant IT IS a bad place!!

Diamond Jim Brady's is the model that a proper irish pub should follow. Your experience starts w/ the fine irish gentlemen who tend bar, always waiting to greet you w/ a handshake and a smile. The cold pints serve as the perfect compliment to the always well execute pub cuisine. You simply can't go wrong. Give it a try- I promise your first visit won't be your last.
