Jimmy Neary ~ Proprietor

About Us

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.
