Excellent service. Wait staff was very prompt. Food was outstanding and the price was very reasonable. If we lived here, we would come back again!

Prices are more than reasonable for the Times Square area. Friendly, attentive staff and you always get a “thank you for coming in” from a gracious Emmett.

We were greeted in such a friendly manner that it felt more like a place on River Street in Savannah than a pub in NYC. The hostess showed us to a cozy little table in the back corner. The service was so friendly and attentive.

I work in the area and never recommend bars or restaurants in the Times Square area except for Emmett’s.

Service was super , fast , efficient and very helpful. I would feel comfortable bringing my family or friends back without a concern. This pub has something for everyone.

Went to see Wicked and was hungry after the play. Stopped in O’Lunney’s, as first time visitors and were impressed by the fact they were still serving food after 11:00pm!!! Our dinners were terrific. The service was very friendly and the Guinness was a “perfect pour.” We would certainly recommend O’Lunney’s to anyone in this area.
Emmett’s has become our anchor whenever we are in NY! Close to all the tourist stuff, but staffed by people who actually care. The pot roast is an absolute joy on a cold winters day. The Guinness is as good as anywhere on the planet. … Can’t recommend it highly enough. Cheers guys!
I loved the Irish decor, having Irish roots, this bar & restaurant make you feel like you are back in Ireland. The owner, Emmett O’Lunney is a great person as well–he makes you feel right at home. If you are ever in New York & you need a warm & friendly restaurant to pick up your spirits—come to Emmett O’Lunney’s!
Great service, delicious food, and reasonably priced drinks for being right in Times Square! The owner is great guy and the bartenders are very friendly! We tell everyone that we know to go visit O’Lunney’s when the go to the city. Next time your in NYC stop by and you will have just as much fun as we do!
This was our first time in NYC. We had a wonderful time. At the end of each day after sightseeing, we would stop in this bar for a couple of drinks. All of the staff was incredibly friendly making us feel like regulars. The manager and owner were fantastic as well. I can’t say enough good things about this bar. The food and the drinks are great as well, but it’s the atmosphere and the service that made this bar one of our favorite places to sit and relax.
This is a great bar. I went to catch the game and stayed for the rest of the night. The drinks are poured promptly and properly and the staff is attentive and very professional. I also enjoyed the food, especially the Irish pub food, which is my favorite. My group had a wonderful time and I want to thank Emmett for his attentive and generous service. This place is a keeper. I took my mom there the next night before we went to see Wicked, and she had a great time. It’s the perfect pre-theater stop since the service will make sure you make your curtain. I recommend it highly as your midtown local.
A friend had recommended this place before leaving for New York, and so after a long day of sightseeing it caught my eye on the way back to the hotel. I ordered the nachos, and they were some of the best I’ve ever had! Their prices were very reasonable, our wait person was friendly, and we especially appreciated the relaxed atmosphere right in the middle of the city.
Where else in the city of New York can an “out of towner” walk into a bar for only the second time in thier life and have the bartender call you by name and know what you are drinking. Great food, great service, very friendly and the best prices I found in the area. There are a lot of places in the Times Square area with multi-million dollar decors but this place has a million dollar staff. Thanks Cab and the rest of the crew. I had a blast.
We went there on Saturday for brunch, not packed at all. The service was great. The hostess was polite and friendly. The wait staff were attentive. The manager came by a checked with us periodically that my friend and I were doing okay. Will definitely go back!
Great after-work buzz! Terrific bartenders! Good Service. Excellent food. Thumbs WAY UP!
This place was awesome, went there for bf’s bday this past weekend and everyone had a great time. Overall really nice ambiance, good for large or small group outings or dates. Service was also super hospitable! It is also in the perfect location
A place where the customer is always welcome, no pretense or false NY snobbery. Friendly staff and owner who believe that good times includes good food and good friends. Great for after work drinks that run into dinner because you are having such a great time talking with your friends, or before or after a Broadway show.
The bartenders and all of the people that work here are great! They know my name and my order. The weekday nighttime crowd is a mix of after-work happy hour attendees that stayed more than the hour and tourists, but everyone is friendly at this place as the bartenders keep exude the calm, cool attitude that makes this place a good time.
Being from Ireland, I was pleasantly greeted by an Irish barmaid who was very attentive and friendly, with a wonderful knowledge of NYC. A fab place to eat and drink. Totally relaxing, perfectly New York-cosy, and a nice tribute to our homeland! Every time…we will be calling in! Cheers to Emmett’s!!!!
