not a bad place for a quick meal .. but .. dont eat there around 6-7 AM.
hello everyone ...
i went to this place a lot at one point in time when i used to go to Webster Hall (the dancing place) ... and after a long night of hard-core dancing, i would go there with my friends hahaa
anyway ... here is my review
- food generally well done
- variety .. good variety of food
- staff ... generally friendly and easy to work with
- hours ... very convinient .. you cant beat 24 hrs place haha
- crowd ... generally well-behaved and just want to have a meal and enojoy it
- the first issue i have with this place, is that around 6 AM or so they start cleaning the place with very strong floor clearner ... it is SOOOOO STRONG that it gets into your nose and system and we could not breath ...
i konw that they have to clean the place .. but if they at least open up the windows or something .. and only clean small portion .. let it dry thoroughly .. then clean another section .. THEN it would be bearable
- the second issue i have with the place is the selection of their music .. i know this is not a club or a lounge, but playing Rock music in the early morning!!! come onnnn guys
overall its a good place .. except for the cleaning procedure and their selection of music
What a nice place.
So I was shopping around the east village last night and I came upon Around the Clock.
What an adorable Diner-ish place...Its well lit, totally cute, and the staff is soo nice. The bar is well stocked, and the choice of food is delish. I had a pizza burger and my girlfriend had a turkey burger with monterey jack.....both were amazing. The fajitas looked great and so did the salads.
Totally cheap, totally a great time.
Great cheap diner. Around the Clock is right down the street from me and one of my favorite neighborhood spots. If you're looking for consistently tasty brunch that's way cheap and gives you a lot of veggie/ vegan/ healthy options, Around the Clock is great. Can't say much about their other food because I haven't moved past the cheap breakfast. Atmosphere and service are nothing special, sometimes better than others, but I keep coming back for the price.
Diner-esque with delicious, cheap, healthy food. I love Around the Clock because it's open late, the environment is casual and relaxed, and the food is incredibly healthy and delicious. Very vegetarian/vegan-friendly. Sandwiches are cheap as hell and there's a large variety to choose from, so you won't get tired. Omelettes, entrees, and salads are also highly recommended. (I've only had one weird food experience there, and that involved the calamari.) They also serve beer and wine if you want a drink with dinner... or breakfast.
Average Food, Below Average Service.
The atmosphere is ok...if you're looking for a very American burger and beer venue. The service is subpar. I decided to join my friends one night for dinner a few minutes after they had already sat down. The waiters had taken a chair from our table and placed it at another table before I arrived, so I was forced to ask them to bring a chair, which is understandable. What is not understandable is why I had to continually ask them for a menu, a glass of water, a napkin and a set of utensils. I even had to ask them to take my order. I was completely ignored. My party and I never even had our glasses refilled with water.
The service is isn't what it should be and certainly not worth the 20%+ tip that they automatically add onto the bill.
TGIF or Ruby Tuesdays is a better bet.
o.k. for the price. it's your average diner- nothing spectacular but the prices are good. the place is extremely crowded though so if you are claustrophobic- move out of ny!
Great cheap food!. I've been going to this place for about 6 years now and it never has failed to disappoint. The food is great, no matter how broke you are, you can get any meal for under $10 at any time of the day or night. The service is good, the food is good, the atmosphere is just fine. It looks like a dump, but hey, it's all worth the price.
TASTY FOOD & CHEAP = All AROUND GOOD. While this restaurant/diner is pretty dingy looking and they are severely understaffed, the delicious food, extremely cheap prices (especially for a large sit down restaurant in the village) and 24 hour availability make this place brilliant. My friends and I come here all the time if we ever want an EXCELLENT breakfast or brunch and want to spend the minimal amount of money. You won't be dissappointed unless you're looking for a posh setting, which is this is definitely not. Don't expect good service too for these prices, but you can have a great meal their with friends.
Used to be REALLY around the clock.
now it's only open 24/7 on Friday and Saturday nights.
Still, this place is a good one.
All the food I've ever had here has been pretty good to delicious; really nice variety, especially for a diner.
The prices are great for Manhattan.
Service is hit or miss; hope for good service but don't expect it.
One thing of particular note is the Bass ale on tap; it has always been especially delicious. I don't know why, but it is.
Worth going back to again and again.
ITS WONDERFUL. Variety of food to eat. Great fruit crepe <very healthy>. Its a great place to hang out with friends. When warm weather comes by, sit outside in front of the restaurant.
