My wife and I stopped here after touring the Empire State building. It was close to 10pm when we got here. It wasn't busy at all which we found odd, maybe because it was a Sunday night. There were a handful of people at the bar and only about 2-3 tables in the back for food. If you're looking to sit and eat at a table when you walk in be sure to walk to the back of the building, only the bar is up front.

Our server was friendly and got us seated quickly. He took our drink orders and then came back with those to get food orders. My wife got a burger which she said was cooked really well and tasted great. I got the fish and chips were was also really good. Their tartar sauce is particularly tasty. Fries were also really good.

The tables in the dining area have good views of a large central TV screen as well as other smaller ones. This night they had an NFL game on the smaller ones and one of the Cubs/Dodgers playoff games on the main screen.

The theme of the pub is definitely sports and you are literally surrounded by thousands of pieces of sports memorabilia. It's fun to look around.

If you're looking for a nice little nook pub to have good food and drinks at then I say go to Foley's.

After a long day we wanted somewhere close to our hotel for a quick bite.
After looking on TripAdvisor we decided to go here as it was quite highly ranked. It was very busy which is always a good sign too.
We had a burger and fries. The fries were over cooked. How can you over cook fries!?!? They had clearly been in the fryer too long as they were so crispy. Fortunately we had no long dark hairs in our food unlike the diner who we seated nearby!
The service wasn't that good either. We had to ask for more drinks as no one came and asked if we needed anything else.
All in all very disappointed.

A fun place for a good lunch and the location of the Irish Baseball Hall of Fame. Friendly wait staff, we ordered a cup of the chili, it was served in a crock covered with cheddar cheese. It was meaty with just the right amount of spice. The Shepard's Pie was served piping hot. The special was two Chicago dogs, good beef franks, the only thing missing was the poppy seed rolls. Entrees were reasonably priced.

The food quality is excellent at a very very reasonable cost! The waiters are friendly and polite even though it’s pretty busy in there. I absolutely love the décor of this pub, lots of things to look at on the walls besides the huge TVs everywhere making sure you can catch the game.
