We go there when in NYC and want a good pint and some Irish food. Pot pie is excellent as are the burgers. 'sheppards pie is also very good. While the the fish in the fish and chips is BIG, the quality is average. We stay away from the real high end dishes, it is a pub. Service has always... More

As soon as you walk in the door you're greeted with a thick Irish accent. The restaurant is rustic and homey. Too many tvs for my taste, but I came for the food. Went there for dinner one day and came back the next day for lunch. The food was great (the french fries were the best). Highly recommend Connolly's

Great great pub food. We both had burgers and they were delicious and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere with a range of couples and families eating. Very child friendly. Good service from a great Irish lad who was happy to chat with us. Would go back if it was close by again!

Spent Thanksgiving week in Times Square and visited just about every Irish pub in the area and hands down our best experience was at Connolly's. We sat at the upstairs bar and had the pleasure of meeting Patrick, our bartender. He was just what you would expect from an Irishman tending bar. Thick accent, strong presence, super friendly, and so... More

It started off perfectly and never got off the mark. The Maitre d' welcomed us in a thick Irish accent. I said that I guess the pub is authentic because he sure sounds authentic. He responded with "Oh, I'm authentic, but an authentic what...I'm not sure." He showed us to our table and and pointed out the bar and the... More

Was perfect for a NYC Irish pub experience. Right down to the servers and hostess with their thick Irish accent. Food was very good. I had their chicken wrap with pesto and roasted peppers. Hubby had fish and chips. Both really good! Neighbouring table had bangers and mash and shepherds pie that looked really good! Will return on next visit

We have been there multiple times. Spacious venue with exceptional service and excellent pub food. No to mention the beer. A great place at any time of the day at Times Square.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
