Nice Outdoor Space – I don't think there is anything exceptional about Mad Hatter, but it does the trick. It's pretty spacious, especially with the outdoor area which is nice in good weather. It has a good beer selection and menu, and they often have specials and sports games on. Nothing to complain about, and yet I easily forget about it and only stop in if I happen to walk by it. But I do like everyone who works there - very friendly and helpful!
If you dont like this place you must be Amish. – So many bars in NY seem to pride themselves on being snotty cold impersonal trendy pose holes. Not so with the Mad Hatter. The staff are very personable and friendly, the food is great,- Bangers and Mash with Onion gravy is to die for, and excellent value. The bar is warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. It is also home to an English Soccer teams fan club (Manchester City) on weekend Mornings. They were a lively bunch, but very friendly and welcoming, They were only too glad to let us join in the fun and we have since become regulars on matchdays. On only our 2nd visit there, the Bartender (Kim) remembered our names and what we drank. I'd recommend this friendly fun bar to anyone who is looking for a chance to unwind and meet good friends with a nice cold drink and some very warm hospitality.
Callin all Sports Fans – We found this bar via the net b4 goin out to NY as it`s the new meetin place for NY Man City Supporters Club when games are on. Respect to all those guys who took time off work for the 3pm(8pm gmt )kick off. drank for 2 hours, then went back to work. Staff are hard workin and friendly, they even poured us into a cab at the end of our excessive post match celebrations. Roisin the Irish Bar Tender posing topless with us for some snapshots was the icing on the cake.OK she didn`t, we made that up, but us sad jaded wrinklies can dream. Listen, it was so good, we wanted to go back a couple of days later but forgot the address, ran up an obscene cab fare tryin to find it,but got there eventually, and it was worth every dime.
If we have a tiny criticism,the food we had was poor.Now it could be that the chef was partially sighted, had his hands tied behind his back, and had to prepare the food using only his teeth that day. Either that or he was a West Ham fan, any road up, it wasn`t best ever.
That said, when next in New York, we`d go back, City game or not.
Football, beer and a patio – I started going to the Mad Hatter a few years ago to watch football on sunday and have not stopped going. The staff is friendly and the food isn't bad either. There is a patio out back that is an oasis in the neighborhood.
Bar staff are the genuine article's! – Went to this bar randomly when visiting NY and loved it!! It is warm and cosy and the staff - especially the lovely Roisin, were amazing - super busy all night long but still managed to keep the fun and humour in the midst of the mayhem! had a great night here and woudl defo come back - especially for the wise cracking bar staff!!! will be back on one of my many visits and i'm looking forward to it already!
Great Local Bar – Went for happy hour and loved the place. Low key, fun, was willing to change the TV to the games we wanted to watch. Great beer options. Will come back next time I am in area!
Mad Hatter? I'll Say! – Went Friday after work with my girlfriend and her two super-horny friends, Eliza and Mirabelle. I ordered a Dewar's & Soda, the gals ordered Miller Lites. Our drinks arrived approximately 9 days later. Ok, I'm exagerating, but you get my point. Also, my cocktail had a lime in it, and as any self-respecting bartender knows that putting citrus fruit in such a scotch-whiskey cocktail is the equivalent of garnishing your morning latte with an olive. Also, our waitress had the personality of dead mold and refused to smile or laugh at any of my awful jokes. Anywho, we sat out front on their pseudo-patio. Bad idea. It's on a slant which through my hips off-kilter for the rest of the evening, which I believe is why I later wet myself, though I can not prove this. However, we were fools not to sit out back on the patio which looked lovely and spacious. As for Mad Hatter cuisine, the fried calamari was quite fresh and did not have me on the toilet all night; a win-win dish.
Great staff, decent crowd and a back yard! – We go to the Mad Hatter often, it is our local and we love the place. The owners Mike and Johnny are friendly and run a really nice operation. Try the salads, they are fantastic, or the buffalo wrap.
We planned a party here once and it was perfection, everything that we wanted was served graciously, the food was good and hot, and the place well decorated.
Friendliest in the Neighborhood – My favorite local haunt! The staff is the best in the area: Becky, Laura, Michelle, Tara, Sean...all so nice, so much fun. Can't beat the traditional Irish Breakfast on weekend brunch. Backyard garden and front sidewalk cafe are a blessing in this crazy city. You'll see me hanging out with my furry friend often. (She loves the chicken fingers.) Beers and drink specials are great...Mad Hatter Red Ale is excellent. Best place to watch all the games...several on at a time so you don't miss anything. They'll be glad to put on your selection as well. As the reviews said, the bar is amazing, looks 19th C. What a real pub should look like. The selection of pub / comfort food is just what you'll want. Try Mad Hatter, you'll be back. Tell 'em Anna's papa sent you.
