Went after a family walk for a brunch. Great service especially with a huge group. The food was good pub food and the drink selection was really nice. Good place in the seaport area.

We've been going to Ryan's for years and their food is always great. Their prices are reasonable. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure a pleasant eating experience. Their brunch is delicious! This is also an excellent option for large parties.

The food is great especially the buffalo tenders app. Really honest clean bar in the downtown area. It's location is a probably why it's not overly crowded but for you tourists near the seaport it's worth the 2 blocks walk. Prices are reasonable as well. Enjoy.

We hit Ryan Maguire's on the way back to the hotel after dining in the Seaport area. The bartender was very friendly and we made a few friends over a college football game.

When we got there at prime time about 7 p.m. on a Saturday night, it was pretty empty. That worried us slightly but it did get good reviews. Three people in our party we sat in the pub. They have a nice selection of beer, not huge. We split 2 appetizers, calamari and coconut shrimp. Both were good. Service was... More

Better than the average place for a casual business lunch in the finance district, the burgers are really good. Especially the Ryan burger. Even though the place wasn't super busy and there seemed to be plenty of staff, it's an overly long wait for food. I would go back.

I work in the neighborhood; people come here all the time, for like decades, that's how loyal the fans are. My workplace colleagues have been coming here since at least 1993. And they don't go anywhere else. These bartenders are nice and polite. I believe the owner is Meena; she is often around looking after everything. They have a free... More

We visited based on Tripadvisor review. Delicious brunch of crabcakes Benedict. My husband had hash and eggs which he enjoyed. Server was excellent-sweet Irish young lady. Highly recommend!

After a long day of walking all over lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Heights, we stopped here for some refreshment on our way back to the hotel. We were not disappointed. Excellent choice of draft brews, great atmosphere, and very friendly bar staff. We didn't eat, but all the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled good.

Found this after a river cruise and walking up from Pier 11 area. Was worried given the proximity to Wall Street that it was an expensive area but liked the look of this and gave it a go, so glad we did. Food and service was really good. Good selection of beers. Nice atmosphere. Prices were more than acceptable.

Thank rhodgreen

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
