New York Times Charmed by the Quiet Man Public House

A New York Times writer rated the new Irish pub "worth it" in a weekend review.

It is clear from the title of New York Times writer Emily DeNitto’s Jan. 8 article, that the “Pull Your Own Pint” table at the e drew her in to Peekskill’s new pub, which Patch covered when itDeNitto had nothing but compliments for the owners, food, renovations, Guinness and atmosphere. 

The writer admired the beautiful 19th century church arches and the woodwork incorporated throughout the establishment. She appreciated the authentic Irish fare – hailing the Chedder ale toast as a “hardy, tasty cold-weather appetizer…enjoyed with a pint of hard cider.” DeNitto even compared the QMPH’s Guinness to the first “properly poured” pint she tasted in a small town in Ireland.

With DeNitto’s review and rating of the pub “Worth It,” Peekskill’s newest bar has the New York Times’ stamp of approval. (I have a feeling you should call for reservations if you want to check it out this weekend).

Congratulations to the McGreals and all those involved in offering

My husband and I walked over to the Quiet Man on Friday night for dinner around 8:30. Although there were 2 tables set - one a square for 4 people, and two little squares for 2 and 2 next to each other, the hostess told us there was no place to sit and we'd have to wait 20 minutes. I pointed to the table and she said they needed to hold it in case 4 people come in. I'm not likely to go back.

Do you mean they held the two two-seaters in case they needed to combine them to accommodate a four-party?

Very nice write up indeed. Congrats to QMPH. I need to get myself over there soon.

Congrats to TQM for the rave review. Definitely justified. The fish and chips are amazing.

Congratulations to all at the Quiet Man for being recognized for what we all knew already! Definitely worth it!!!!

TQM is a great place. It is missing one thing, however. In the classic Irish literary and bohemian tradition, it should have some bookshelves (with books). I have a classic hardcover copy of ULYSSES that I can donate along with some other stuff. That way, if you’re exhausted from the craic, you can pull down some Yeats or Behan and enjoy some intellectual stimulation to go with your brew. TQM should also have a weekly Irish trivia contest. The winner would get a free Guinness and appetizer.

Bruce - the answer is yes

Lovely write-up. I'm looking forward to having lunch there one day, or perhaps brunch one Sunday. I agree with the above comment regarding the addition of books!!

We have tried to go in twice because my husbands a Brit and we love pubs - we met in a true Irish pub in Manhattan - and it was so busy, crowded and noisy both times - plus also told a long wait for a table - so far we have not gone. too bad - it seems I am not the oly one who has had this experience. Looks like one has to go on completely off hours to try it out.

The seating guy can be a little standoffish at times. Is that who you mean? There's no actual doorguy. I don't know if he's a racist or not but he frequently looks like you're imposing on his time. That's not good business. If people are choosing your restaurant over fifty others in the area, you should try to be a little nicer. So it might not be because of your race, whatever that is, but because he's got a general attitude problem. The place is rather small, so it's hard to seat a group without a reservation. I hear the Birdsall is good but it's a little too pork-oriented for my tastes.

Spruce - yes, I do mean that they held two tables waiting for a party of 4 to come rather than seat us. Also, our experience the one time we were there was that the service was abysmally slow.

There is nothing that I said that was inappropriate. This website is a joke. The door guy PROFILES. That's the truth. So I will take away my original "racist" statement, but it doesn't change the situation. I was not personally profiled. If you walk in with a group of firemen, the door guy treats you lovely, as it was all of Peekskill's finest that contributed to their lovely decor inside. However, if it's busy inside and it's a weekend...there is indeed a doorguy and he will deny your entry if you don't meet his unspecified requirements. Hey Liz, instead of deleting truthful statements, why don't you go to the Quiet Man and ask them their thoughts on this. Clearly they have customer service issues. Maybe that could be your next write-up.
Spruce Bringsteen January 11, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Oh man, that's not cool. They shouldn't have done that. If they're going to insist on waiting for four people, they need to make that table a permanent four-seater. I think I know which ones you're talking about. Are they the two right next to the front window?
