Had the best birthday ever at Doc Watson's. A group of 15 of us drank and danced our butts off! I must admit, we were a bit loud but the servers and everyone that worked there were very patient with us. They even were really good about splitting up the checks. I think I'm doing this again next year.
Doc Watsons has a really good drink menu. I enjoy draft Guinness and they have it :) My friends and I come for lunch and enjoy happy hour on Fridays. I definitely start my weekends early thanks to Doc's
Every time I take a new friend to Doc Watson's, they always want to return. I can count on the restaurant for fresh, delicious food and some of the best drinks in New York City. No visit to Doc Watson's is complete without at least one pint of traditional Irish Guinness.
Thanks, Doc Watson's, for a memorable way to end my week. I look forward to visiting next Sunday night!
When friends come to visit me in New York City, I always recommend dining at Doc Watson's. The restaurant is a great place to experience Irish food, drinks and music. The menu is filled with classic Irish cuisine and American favorites. My favorite menu items are the Grilled Portobello Salad and the Breakfast Burger topped with bacon, cheese and a fried egg.
What happened to the atmosphere? – I used to go to docs a few times a week.. A few of the old bartenders just magically left and the remining ones were real shady about it. The past few times I've hung out thr it just wasn't the same . Lots of cocky attitudes and forced conversation. Service went down the drain and not to mention I ordered a stoli martini and got some kind of gin. Won't be goin back to my old neighborhhod bar anytime soon.
Great neighborhood pub – Usually frequent Doc Watson's for live sports. They always have a great crowd, fun bartenders and solid pub food. Thursday and Sunday nights they have live music and its just an overall good time.
Great Bartenders – Handsome friendly bartenders from Ireland. Need i say more?
great place to eat in, never order delivery – i LOVE Doc Watson's. I live and work 5min away and eat or drink there about once a week. the drinks are great and the waitresses are so sweet.
I just recently decided to try their delivery services. the first time i called in an order they didn't shown up after an hour and a half and two phone calls, the guy claimed he was lost ( the address was 5 blocks away) and i got neither my food or an apology. so i tried again a few days later, it took them about 40 min to deliver and when i went to pay the deliverer didn't have enough change... for a $20!! lucky for him i didn't either.
of course i'll still be going to DW's but i don't think i'll be ordering out for a while
Low key, good food – Very low key type bar, nothing special to it. The food is really good. The cajun chicken sandwich, the hamburger, and the chicken pot-pie are all good. I order delivery from here sometimes too. Service can be so-so, but for the most part pretty good.
