Ordered a goat cheese and arugula salad with salmon. The salad came with a few crumbs of goat cheese. I had to ask if this was the new standard. The waitress asked if I wanted more and explained that I had indeed ordered a goat cheese salad and expected evidence of it. As if that was not enough my salad had stale arugula that had already turned yellow at the bottom of my plate. Again I told the waitress as she picked my plate and took it straight to the bin in clear view of my sight. A few moments later she returned with a bill with a $2 discount. A simple apology would have sufficed. Anyway not going back or recommending anyone else to go there again.

This was one of the most disappointing nights I've had in a bar in a very long time. The food was less than mediocre. The ketel one and cranberry was 1 part bottom shelf "not ketel one" and 32 parts cranberry juice. I watched the bartender pour 3 of these for us, and never once did he have a bottle of ketel one in his hand. The attendant in the women's room actually cursed at my wife when she asked for a paper towel to clean the beer that was spilled on her shirt. This was unbelieveable.

I would have to say that the McFaddens on 42nd street in NYC is one of the best bars in the midtown area The DJ played all the right songs, there was a great mix of girls and guys, and the overall atmosphere generated by the bartenders and crowd led my friends and I to having a memorable experience.

I just returned from McFaddens and I am disappointed to say the least. I ordered the potato skins for $7.95. The order came with only 3 skins! They were not special oversized or overstuffed ones either... actually, I thought they were kind of small. To fill up the extra room on the plate it was stuffed with a ton of salad greens. I feel totally ripped off! Imagine going to this irish bar to watch a game with friends, you order a bunch of appetizers for the group and there are only 3 skins everyone has to fight over? Unbelieveable. In response to an earlier post, I was served a fountain soda, not a bottle.

Just returned from McFadden's. Great food, great drink, and interesting people, many from the UN. Would highly recommend this place. Burgers are fabulous.

I went to McFadden's for dinner with some girlfriends and had an amazing time! The food was really good...It is not a fancy resturant but for being an Irish pub I was pleasently suprised by the menu options. The wait-staff was super friendly and attentive especially considering how busy it was. It was just a very nice experience!

Oh no. 3rd Avenue was once the home to some character driven Irish pubs. This was 'til about '96-97. Flash forward. These old bars are now semi trendy frat boy/admisinistrative assistant ridden overpriced not cool bars. And even worse? Now they are after a corner in the middle of a one block removed area. The activity is welcome. The cheesy clientele? Not welcome. Anyone who lives in discreet and lovely Tudor City knows what I mean. I think the people who moved to the East 30s for affordable rent 10 years ago now come 5-10 blocks north and east, and the result? A mediocre bar becomes a scene. I guess the irony is that soon this area, with river views, will be overpiced soon too.
