This was a typical pub style restaurant with reasonable prices and good service. We recommend the fish and chips, the caesar salad and the shepherds pie.

Hi, Does anyone know if Jack Dempseys still have the Empire State Building VIP pass if you purchase food and drink in their bar? A friend got this pass years ago but I wanted to know is it still available! Thank you :)
