Cool and Closed :( – Oh man! I can’t believe that this place closed down! I’d been wanting to stop by again for a few months because I had a pretty good time the last time I was here, and now they’re closed. I’m not a huge sports fan, but a lot of my friends are, and since we all work in the area we’d often head over to the Zone after work to pal around, eat a little, drink a lot and catch up. I would never have expected a Times Square sports themed restaurant to be a quiet and cozy as it was, and I’m actually a little bummed that it’s gone.
They had a pretty good beer selection, and the bartender was generally good with keeping the drinks flowing. The food was okay--nothing that surpassed pub food, and the staff always seemed more interested in each other than in the customers, but that kind of added to the appeal for me. We were never rushed out, and even though we’d sometimes get loud we were never asked to quiet down. The arcade part was pretty cool too, and it was fun to play some of the older video games. This was a good hang out spot, I’m gonna miss it.
AWESOME! – I took my 2 kids there and boy oh boy did I (not they) had a blast! lol I went during the NCAA Tourney and the place was a madhouse filled w/ corporate & sports crazed fans! Although it was a melting pot of different individuals & races, we all shared a common bond -beer, food & sports! Unlike me, my kids were quiet at first but as they got comfortable w/ their surroundings -it felt like Disneyland with games, arcades, flat-screens and more flat-screens...ok, OK, OK...more like an adult Disneyland!
All-in-all, we had a great time...the kids want me to bring them back again. Although it is a long drive for me, I wouldn't mind going back again...next time, I'll hire me a babysitter and head out with the fellas -they'll love this place!
bad place to ever go – first off took like 30 mins to get sate on a tues lunch it was"nt even busy then another 15 mins for a server to get to the table server was very nice but slow the food came out all wrong the manager came over and was very rude i just payed for my check and left would never go back to this place ever
Got Ripped Off – Went with a group from my office to have drinks at the upstairs bar. We were there probably 3 hours, drinking and eating appetizers. The service was decent, drinks came fast, good football game on, etc. There was 8 of us, at most, there at one time. When we got the tab, we put it on one credit card, it was $646, we tipped the bartender $125 on the card, and another $20 in cash. She took this, and never told us that we had already been charged 18% gratuity on the check. So she got a total of $236 for a tip. We should have known to look, being a large group - but how rude and tacky could a place be?!
My company just moved onto the block from 57th St, and we go out a lot as big groups and for corporate events. Needless to say we won't be going there again.
ULTIMATE MAN'S-MAN SPORTS BAR! Great place for plain and simple GRUB. The food isn't fantastic, but whatcha expect? Make sure to checkout the reclining chairs available to complete your experience. Ahh, the man chair! The staff is really friendly and will do everything to help your sports senses go on overload. Let the games begin!!!
good food and atmosphere – I was surprised at the quality of food in this place. Everything I had was excellent. One of the best burgers I can remember. Friendly and attentive staff. Not pricy either which was a surprise for the location. If you are looking for a burger joint while in NYC and to catch a game, this is the place.
ESPN Zone Waste of Money – This place was a joke. The staff was rude. The games were expensive. There really weren't that many games. The games were outdated. It was an absolute rip off. If you must go to one of these stupid places, go to Dave and Busters.
Of course, save yourself the headaches and skip Times Square all together. Think about it, when it comes right down to it, all it is is a collection of stores from any generic mall next to overpriced theatre productions.
Fun & quality Times Square option! – Had a great time here recently - this is a fun, good quality, mid-priced sports-themed option in Times Square. The variety of seating areas & sports broadcasts insure that you can view whatever sports event, if any, that you'd like, or at least be able to check the score every once in a while. The food was awesome - we shared an appetizer of sliders (our waiter recommended & brought it w/ bbq sauce), & I had the salmon BLT; all was delicious. We finished off w/ the amazing & decadently gooey warm cookie sundae. Our waiter was helpful w/ any questions we had about the menu & gave us great recommendations. After our meal, we enjoyed some fun at the game room & dropped by the store for a couple gifts. It was a nice afternoon of theme -restaurant fun!
GREAT PLACE - GREAT FOOD – Great place for sports...and the food was awsome too. We where a large group our food was hot and promptly served and the waiter very nice and attentive to all our requests. They have the biggest beer mugs ever, my husband was in heaven, LOL...On the third floor there is an arcade great for kids and adults. We had a great time here, we will definately be BACK.
Sports Fantics this is the place! – Well, I'm a girl and I thought this place was awesome! You can watch any kind of sports and see scores on all of their big screens even in the bathroom. If you want to meet a guy this is the place. The food was okay a little pricey, but hey your in New York City!
