McGee's is actually the McLaren pub, from the How I met your mother sitcom. And it's just the way you see on tv! Lot's of good beer, food and simpathy! A cool atmosphere! Try the Jalapeños popers!

Staff is great and fun. It's a nice place to grab a drink or something to eat. You can relax in quiet or the staff is happy to chat with you. Great place

McGees was just round the corner from our hotel, so we called in here a couple of times on our long weekend in New York for pre-dinner drinks. We sat at the downstairs bar for drinks, so cannot comment on the food, which looked good...More

Yes! I went here alone and had a great time.
Am I likely to need to book a table for a week night in December? Also do they still do how I met your mother Monday's? Thank you
