I visited Scallywags a number of times whilst in NY on business. The staff are all very friendly with excellent food and great beer. I had the house burger with bacon and cheese and it was very, very good. The Guinness is excellent. If you are in the area and want to eat somewhere welcoming, with good food and a... More

Good food! Good drink's! Super nice staff. Very quiet in January. We had the french onion soup , it was one of the best we ever had. Then we had chicken slider's very good. Great place to go if you are staying near Hell's Kitchen.

We called in during happy hour, it's safe to say we were very happy. We had a sharing platter and Nacho's and it was a massive amount of food, which was really nice. We also had the mystery beer, which was also a good pint. The staff are really friendly and happy to have a chat. We called in again... More

This place has it all if you are looking for an Irish pub setting. They also have a great deal on brunch where you can get bottomless drinks for just $15. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the city.

Stopped here to grab a bit to eat before a show. Food was outstanding. Both of us ordered Burgers and it was a nice change to have more meat than bun. Good portions and also they offer select drinks (3 actually) for free with your entree. Our waitress was very friendly and professional. Will definitely come back

We only stopped in for a drink on a Saturday afternoon on our way to Lincoln center. We weren’t expecting much and didn’t plan to eat. We were pleasantly surprised with the service, the bartender greeted us quickly and with a smile. She was attentive to use and seemingly the other customers. What makes the visit a gem was the...

I remember this place from my last trip here two years ago. Sarah was here then and is still here now. An amazing Irish Lass with all the warmth you expect from an Irish lass and an Irish Establishment. The food is wonderful and filling. The beer yummy, and the ambiance heart warming, love it. I have recommended it to... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
