We found O'Hara's accidentially, great place. bartender was wonderful. there is a great scrap - book from 9/11 to look at. being a NY'er it was bitter sweet. Love it here would definitely go back

All of the reviews that I read here seem positive. We are out-of-towners. I don't think that this was the best option for us. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The restaurant/bar area was very crowded. The food was fine, but except for burgers and corned beef, there wasn't much of a selection on the menu for St. Patrick's Day. I was looking for a more traditional experience. The TV was blasting a sports game and the music was rock and roll: not much of a Irish experience. If you want beer this Pub is the place. If you want lunch, I would go elsewhere.

My kids and I stopped in to this pub on our recent trip to NYC and it was one of the highlights of the trip. It was crowded but we were seated immediately. Our server was extremely attentive to our needs, as well as our stupid tourist questions. We decided on our food quickly. We each ordered something different, and everything tasted great. I had the 10 house burger, and it was the best hamburger I have had in some time. More important than the food was the atmosphere and service. Everyone in that place was incredibly nice. They let us look at a giant scrapbook full of pictures from 9/11, which was hard (brought tears to my eyes), but important, especially for my kids, who have a fleeting memory of that day. We bought T-shirts there for only 10 dollars, which was tremendous. I love New York anyway, and the trip to O'hara's did nothing to change that. I will most definitely go back there the next time I am back in New York.

I had been lucky enough to have gotten seated at O'Hara's after visiting the 9/11 Memorial on 2 separate occasions. Both times there was a short wait, but while waiting I noticed all the woodwork was covered in patches from firefighters and police officers who worked at Ground Zero on 9.11.01 and the months to follow. There must have been over two thousand different ones from all over the nation. We were seated by the owner and he gave my family a table in another room filled with just as many patches! Our family ordered drinks, appetizers and burgers and all were served exactly as ordered, and extremely reasonably priced! Normally I don't write reviews, but after eating at this establishment twice, both on a day in which the 9/11 Memorial was for 1st Responders and by chance this Pub was local, the food, wait time, and hospitality was over and beyond our expectations! At this point I wish to congratulate O'Hara's for being the February "Spotlight of the Month" by the National September 11th Memorial and Museum. They are so deserving of this honor. Definately five stars!

While attending classes for the US Navy at the Merchant Marine Academy in Great Neck NY, I discovered O'Hara's on a fall Sat afternoon. After a long walk from Central Park to the World Trade Center site to rememember and pay my respect, I felt like a beer and this Pub happen to the 1st one I saw so I went inside. To be honest, I didn't have any food but met a great honest bartender, a NYC Fireman-who just got done playing the bagpipes at a funeral and still had his kilt on- and a former Jersey City cop who now worked on wall Street. After the bartender recommeded Jameson and Guinness, we all bonded-complete with the fireman playing the ND Fight Song on his pipes in the bar-encouraged by the staff. This was the night Notre Dame played Michigan State which made the fight song played in NYC after visiting the WTC center and spending some time with some local hero's who treated me like a king. we ended up at McSorley's-another great bar, but it all started at O'Hara's. From free tickets to Yankees Stadium offered by several season ticket holders to the hospitality shown to me by these guys that went out of their way to make sure I had a good time, NYC treats servicemembers like gold and I am writing this a few years after the fact because this pub and the city has always left a memorable impression on me.

My first time in O'Hara's & I wondered why I never went there before. The history of the place alone is an awesome tale. The bartender was astounding and made us all feel like we were regulars. All of us bought t-shirts and decided every time we come back to O'Hara's we are going to be wearing our shirts. Going back at the end of Sept. and cannot wait to have more of their calamari and cosmos. A must do place for sure.

Walked past this place many times. Should have stopped before my last night in NYC. Atmosphere is great. Friendly staff and great burgers. Will come back when in town again.
