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...

We were staying in the Times Square area and wanted some great local fare. We went for brunch with 2 teenagers. Loved the BELT (egg on a BLT). Very tasty sandwich, and loved the sweet potato fries. This place is very affordable, super nice (Irish) staff and in close proximity to everything mid-town. Highly recommend if you like local places... More

good food for fair prices, thats whats Scallywags. Great atmosphere, and the food is good, very tasty. Try the fish and chips, or one of the beers... you won`t be disappointed. Don`t let the outside fool you, this bar/restaurant is worth a visit.

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.
