Your Local In the Financial District.
I have been going to Jim Brady's for over 20 years. it is a warm, convivial place in the heart of the financial district, with excellent food, friendly service and fair prices. Not only does the restaurant feature the traditional Irish specialties of Shepherd's Pie, corn beef and cabbage and bangers and mash, but it also offers the best hamburger in New York, a flame broiled 12 ounces, done perfectly to your specifications. The fish tastes as if it was freshly caught and there is always a large variety of offerings. There are pasta and salad specials each day and pizza at night. If you are looking to quench your thirst, the beer and cocktails are generously served with some of the fairest prices you will find downtown.
With all that, the bartenders Paul, Joe and Billy provide what makes Jim Brady's so special -- someone who knows not only your name but your tastes and interests; someone with a smile when you need one and an patient ear when you need that. When you go to a restaurant and find that most of the people there are regulars you know you have found somewhere special. In New York restaurants come and go by the thousands. Jim Brady's has been at the same location in the Financial District for over 30 years. If you know anything about New York you know how special that longevity truly is.
Great customer experience.
I don't normally write reviews, but wanted to give these folks the attention they deserve. If you ever wanted to walk into a restaurant and feel immediately comfortable with the place, Brady's makes sure this happens. From Paul, Joe and Billy shaking hands and serving drinks (Suggest the Harp on tap!) to Celeste (That die hard Yankee fan!) and the waitstaff, to the cook in the kitchen, your experience is going to be one that will bring you back. You should expect great food (Burgers done excellent!) and great banter
when you go. If it wasn't for having to sit in between so many Yankee and Met fans, Brady's would give you the impression of a Cheers type establishment. I recommend my friends at Brady's highly!
Ultimate Food, even better with a few pints!. Maybe its an Irish thing but what a place!! The atmosphere of Bradys....large, classy bar with its "off the boat" Irish staff mixed with a combination of a burger you could sink your mouth into everyday made an unforgettable evening. I thought i would stay for one pint but after some comical bantar from the bartenders and even whittier comments from the waitresses had me staying way past curfew for a weekday outting. The portions on the plates and their ultimate tastes will definitly bring me back to that "oh so friendly place" ...... where they know your name and have a drink awaiting. I recommend just about everything on the menu but the cheddar cheese burger topped my charts on Best Burger in New York. Overall- definite place to chill out, have a pint, and meet some great people.
Over Priced and Poor Service. I went here on a Thursday night for happy hour and appetizers. We sat at the bar. Food and drinks were way over priced and not that good. Happy hour does not exist. Will NOT be going back.
Worst food service in Lower Manhattan. Went to the bar for a beer and a burger for a late mid-week lunch. There was absolutely no crowd at the bar. Drink service was fine, but burger took at least 50 minutes. I say "at least" because I paid for my beer and walked out after 50 minutes - who knows how long I would have waited. The bartender was unable to provide any update or feedback to explain the complete lack of food service provided here. I had to settle for a quick sandwich from Hale & Hearty across the street - I will never attempt to have lunch here again.
Best Irish Bar Downtown. Pop in for a Guinness and introduce yourself to Joseph, the greatest bartender in New York.
Decent Irish Pub. Went during what we thought would be happy hour, but it was non-existent - $5.50 for a pint is okay, but certainly nothing special during the 4-7 time period. The $10 nachos were decent, and 2-3 people can snack on them. Overall, an okay experience, but certainly nothing out of the ordinary
Looking forward to Dinner. We had lunch at Bradys the other day while in the city for the day. All I can say is if lunch was this good I cant wait to have dinner there. Any place that can make grilled cheese and tomato that good has to pull out all the stops for its dinner menu. We loved the look and feel of JB's also. Just when we arrived the lunch crowd started to filter out but it looks like a great place to have a few pints of Guinness and talk with the people at the bar.
Best Atmosphere!. What can't you say about JB's. The classic decor, the nicest bartenders, and classy pub grub all make me wonder why I would go elsewhere when I am downtown. By far the best atmosphere South of Houston St.
World Cup. Brady's served a great Irish breakfast to the early risers who watched the USA vs. Germany world cup match last thursday. The fact it was a very exciting game only added to the 'wall to wall' packed wall street males experience. The staff worked wonders to make sure everyone was fed and drinks were available. Bravo Great job!! Next time I have an occasion to drink at 7am this is where I'm going.
