My son and I (me the mom). Were visiting NYC last May. We walked around site seeing and decided to try a place for a bite to eat n' drink. We came upon J.P. Moran's. We didn't have to think twice to stop in and try them out. My dad's name is J.P. Moran. We thought this was pretty cool. We met a few older irish ladies at the bar. Order a couple drinks...a nice Guinness and Heineken. Bartender was polite and gave good service. We ate a nice hot meal. Food was delish! No complaints! Real people and real food. Looking forward to May next month:)

On a Wednesday night, my girlfriend and I decided to try this place for dinner. Big mistake. We should have known it was going to be poor when there were maybe 2 other tables in the entire restaurant being served food. After being seated, our waitress finally came over after 20 minutes to take our order. It took another 10 mins to get water, then 10 more minutes to get a beer and a coke, and then 5 minutes after that, we were so starving that we asked for bread - which the menu said comes with the meal. The bread was stale and hard - not a good sign of things to come. Finally, our food arrived. We each got burgers and fries - standard fare for an Irish Pub. My girlfriend's stomach turned with the first bite of a french fry. The fries tasted like they were cooked in several days old oil. The burgers were OK - a little overcooked, but weren't filling enough given that the french fries were inedible and we couldn't even fill up on bread because it was stale. We debated sending the food back or telling them how disappointing it was, but I decided against it. The food was just so sub par that even if we were to send it back, I wouldn't have wanted to get anything else on the menu.

Work in the area, stop in for lunch sometimes. Terrific burgers, friendly bartenders and fast service every time. Don't know what you guys are talking about.

Stopped here for a quick lunch before shopping with a party of 4. I have never experienced worse service in my life. The waitress was rude and inconsiderate. At our request for lemon with our tap water, she rolled her eyes and sighed. She brought out my friend's soup and salad together (only things she ordered) while the rest of us waited 45 minutes for our burgers and fries. The place was practically empty and by the time the burgers came out, my friend was done with her food. None of our fries were cooked through. Even though the burgers were good, I would never go back because of the service. Our 'quick lunch' turned into a long waste of time.

Went here before the theatre for something to eat with my girlfriends. We really enjoyed the food and as the place is just off fifth avenue, we were delighted at their very reasonable prices. The burgers are outstanding, one of my friends had the filet blue salad which she raved about, and they have a really nice chocolate moouse thing for dessert. They also have a very reasonable wine list where most of the bottles are under $30. Will definitely visit again.

I've eaten here a few times; was always happy with the service and the atmosphere. The last time was August 2007, and I won't be back. The waitress was surly and rude; I think her attitude stemmed from my British accent. The food took a long time to come, it wasn't what we ordered my wife's food was cold. When the bill came, it was the print out from the cash register bit it was covered in additional black ink; the pen had been pressed so hard it had torn the paper in places. The additional writing related to the tip for the waitress which was described as "compulsory gratuity". I've lived in the USA for 3 years and have never been handed such a thing. I understand about tipping and that the waiting staff get taxed on a percentage of the bill.

I'm a regular visitor from outer space - London - and at least one trip to PJ Moran's is a must on every visit. The greeting is great, the beer is great and the burger is fantastic. Not to mention the chips - superb. All very bad for you - but, hell, you only live once!
