Editorial review from Citysearch 9/10/2012

I used to like this place for what I thought was a lively atmosphere. Lately, though, certain rather undesirable elements amongst the ""regular"" patrons have overtaken the scene. These drunks act like they own the place and aggressively grope women in full view of the bar staff but are never rebuked because of the strength of the dollars they leave behind. There are only four tiny screens so it's not a sports bar, but it's so noisy that you can't hear yourself or anyone else. With so many Irish pubs within a four-block radius of MSG to choose from, this one is definitely way overpriced, as other reviewers have noted, since they all serve the same grub. For a really good time, give Tir Na Nog a miss in favor of more straightforward sports bars like Stout (33rd/7th), where the decor is not so artistic but the crowd is more civilized, the bar menu is better for the money, and viewing capabilities are what you'd expect them to be. more

LOVE LOVE LOVE 3/15/2012

Like seemingly every other reviewer, I am just smitten with Tir na nOg. I had the Shepherd's Pie two weeks ago and now walk around dreaming of it. The smoked salmon is the best in the city. The new craft beers are outstanding, particularly Leffe and Lagunitas. The service never fails to please. more

The best restaurant near Madison Square Garden 11/22/2011

The hospitality at Tir na nog is legendary; like any great Irish pub, they know how to make you feel welcome. The food is terrific; it has the best Shepherd's Pie I've ever had, the meats are terrific, and the Salmon is always perfect. I'm also quite pleased they've added a line of craft beers to the traditional Irish choices; Smuttynose is my new favorite. It's a great place to go with a group on Saturday night or for Sunday brunch. more

Fun Irish Pub 1/4/2009

I was here the day after Thanksgiving and had a blast. There were (3) irish ladies singing and they were great. The lady bartender took good care of us & hooked us up. It wasn't too packed and their was a great mixed crowd. I also visited a 2nd time not too long after and enjoyed myself again, but not as much as the first. That's because they had different performers, but regardless it was all good. I will say that the seating areas where people eat in the bar area were pretty dirty, nobody was cleaning up, ick. Pros: Live music, bartenders and choices on tap Cons: bar eating areas can be dirty. more

Awesome Bar 9/23/2008

I stopped into Tir Na Nog earlier this week because it looked like a pretty chill place to just grab a few drinks with my friends. Well it totally is! The bar is really relaxed, good atmosphere, and good bar food! The staff was really nice and they all had *exy Irish accents which was a definite plus!! more

Yumm-A! 1/9/2007

Once again, I picked the best meal, the boneless lamb w/ bak choy! DE-LISH! :-) Also had the soup de jour (clam chowder), creamy but not overly rich, just right with no sandy clams (yuck to sandy clams)! :-) Great prices in my opinion. \r \r Hubby had the raw oysters (he said they were ok) and he had the shep's pie (edible).\r \r I would recommend reservations, it was packed for a Friday night and even though we were about 15 mins early, we were promptly seated by the most gracious host. I wish I knew his name, as he put us at ease instantly. :-) Waitress was just ok. She was more interested in talking to her regulars then checking in on us and making sure our plates were cleared in a timely fashion. \r \r Look like it would be a great bar to go to after work and catch a game or tv news. \r \r Overall, scale of 1-10, I gave it a 7. Enjoy! Pros: Decor is beautiful, good food for the price! Cons: Waiting staff could be better more

Good times 5/22/2006

Great for a party 1/16/2006

We had my boyfriends' birthday dinner party here on Saturday - 15 of us. The staff was extremely attentive and patient, the table had some privacy which was appreciated, and the live irish music made for a great atmosphere. The only two downsides: the hostess would not seat us until all 15 were there - even when 11 of us were crowded at the bar area. It is also a tad pricey for your typical irish bar/restaurant...even the cheeseburger is $13. My boyfriends' rib eye, which granted was large, was $30 alone....that belongs in a steakhouse! Pros: fun atmosphere, attentive service Cons: price for the quality more

Enjoyable Time! 2/4/2004

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very warm. Our party had an all around good time. Definitely worth checking out. more

Magically delicious! 2/1/2004

This place rocks! The Yellowfin Tuna and Calf's liver are my favorites! I can't get enough of this place. It's always full, so be sure to make reservations. more

Harsh Waitress!!! 7/11/2003

I've never been served by such a rude waitress anywhere! Our waitress flipped out on us for a straw wrapper falling on the floor, proceeded to give us our check without us asking for it, then told us we could finish our beers and leave. This is the first time I've been called ignorant and was thrown out of a restaurant and I don't even know why it happened. We asked to speak with the manager, but supposedly he was upstairs and did not want to come down to speak with us. For the pretty penny we dropped on the food and service, we got pretty lousy service. If you go here, trust won't want to leave a tip! Pros: Decent Food Cons: Horrible Service, No managerial staff, Very unprofessional more

great craic!!!! 3/21/2003

Had the pleasure of a pint or two in Tir Na Nog. Great lively spot, with friendly bar staff. more

weak Sun brunch 1/26/2003

I've been told that dinner here is very good. But Sun brunch was very weak. Roasted breast of chicken cob salad. Dry tasteless chicken, under ripe avacado. Cheap on the blue cheese. The blue points were very good and fresh. Good beer selection. Good and pleasant service though slow. Maybe I'd try dinner. But it is a bar. Pros: oysters, beers, service & ambiance Cons: Sun brunch., slow more

Authentic Irish decor, way too expensive 1/10/2003

Liked the feel and look of the place, very authentic. Food was okay but way overpriced. Good place to go for drinks. more

Good Place, Bad Locale 6/16/2002

The food is surprisingly good, and the decor is nice. The service, however, is a peg or two below the quality of food (horrible bartenders), and the clientele, for the most part, are rowdy, loud-mouthed commuters (this could explain the bad attitudes from the staff) getting loaded for an AC/DC concert or a Knicks game. Too bad, has a lot of potential. more

Authentic Irish with American food. Cleverly designed, interesting crowd, and can we mention it's both an amazing place to get drunk or just to drink.

  • Three Irishmen had a good idea... The idea was to provide a unique Irish experience incorporating the warmth of an Irish pub with New American cuisine and all the while maintaining the same charm and hospitality. The idea became a reality five years ago...
