We hope you and your families are all doing well. We continue to miss you all and are truly excited about the prospects of opening up soon. Our plan is to reopen when the Governor allows for 50% indoor dining. Our main concern is creating a safe and healthy environment for our customers and staff. Our reopening plan is described below, but as you know this is an evolving situation so we expect our plan and the dining requirements to change over time.
Our employees are required to comply with the following:

If tables are still available, walk-ins are welcome.
Between 4-5:30 pm and 8:45-11 pm, we will operate on a first come, first served basis. No reservations needed.
We are not permitted to serve customers at the bar, so we are temporarily using the area to space out our tables.

To make reservations, please call Neary’s at 212-751-1434 between the hours of 4pm and 10pm daily. We will only take reservations up to 2 weeks in advance.

Neary's opened on St. Patrick's Day 1967 and proudly remains one of the most well-known Irish restaurants in New York. The restaurant is often referred to as the "Irish 21." Jimmy Neary, New York's finest host, welcomes everyone in the door with his great Irish smile and charming personality. Each night Jimmy is joined by members of his family and his long-tenured staff to ensure that every customer feels like they are part of the family.
Neary's signature dishes include lamb chops, prime rib of beef, corned beef and cabbage and broiled 1/2 chicken. In addition, there is a fine selection of daily delivered fresh fish.
We look forward to taking care of you and sharing our special home with you.
The Neary Family
Betsy Bober Polivy, founder of Manhattan Sideways (sideways.nyc), has published an amazing book entitled Walking Manhattan Sideways. It is Betsy’s journey of walking the side streets of Manhattan’s original grid and showcasing some of New York’s most wonderful businesses, including our own favorite restaurant, Neary’s. We are truly honored to be included in the book.
Thank you, Betsy! We wish you much success with your fabulous publication.
“Neary's is like classy Irish restaurants in NY used to be decades ago, where the owner comes over to sit with you, where the bartenders greet you by name, and you feel at home.”
“This is an upscale place with a very relaxed atmosphere and no "snootiness.”
“Charming and wonderful service. The food is unbeatable. It really is like being in Ireland. Meeting Jimmy is particularly pleasant.”
“Everybody’s smiling. They might be a sourpuss when they come in, but they won’t be when we get done talking to them.”
