I love Soldier McGee! I've been there several times and have always left wanting more. It's a great place to watch a game. It's clean and I love the open space. The jukebox is awesome and there is always a great crowd. Try the macaroni and cheese wedges they're a perfect pair to the icy cold draft beer. I don't often find myself on the UWS but when I do McGee is the place I go.

Pros: Beautiful Flat Screens, Great Service, Great Jukebox

Can't say enough about this place. Was there for two different games so far this year. Awesome draft system and some very hot bartenders. Was there with a lot of people and the staff was really nice. Many HD screens, so was able to watch every game. Good crowd. I will definitely be back. Cool jukebox.

I can't begin to describe how bad this place is. My boyfriend took me there over the summer to watch a game and I hated it. I think Jimmy254 said it best. Besides the update in decor, this is one of the worst additions to the Upper West Side over the past 2 years. I met a guy there who claimed to be part-owner. He seemed like a nice guy at first, but he proceeded to talk about himself for the entire night. He even tried to pick me up with my boyfriend standing 5 feet away. When my boyfriend confronted him he ran behind the bar like a scared little kitten. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else.

As an UWS resident, maybe one of the worst places I've been to in the neighborhood. The new owners cleaned the place up nice and poured a lot of money into the decor, but there was absolutely no atmosphere and the patrons were miserable. I went w/ a friend recently to watch a game, expecting a laid-back sports bar with good eats, cold beer, and a friendly crowd. Instead, we were introduced to a stuffy bar filled with a bunch of wall street guys looking to talk about their expensive homes, fast cars, and italian suits. Certainly not what I expected and I will certainly will not go back.

I just love this place! The bartenders' are friendly, courteous and plenty efficient when it comes to getting what you want. I would recommend this place to everyone for any day out of the week! You'll enjoy great music whether you like old school or new school-you can find just about everything in their jukebox. They also have great food!!! Please see what everyone's talking about - GOOD TIMES! See ya' soon SOLDIER MCGEE!

This bar has changed ownership a couple times in the last few years, and this is probably the worst amalgamation yet. But if you ever get drinks there, just put them on "The Donnely Tab". They'll know what you mean.

In Short
A mostly local crowd of yuppie 30-something professionals and local sports fanatics schmooze before, during and after the game at this lively tavern. With eight 50-inch flat screen TVs, a pool table, dartboard and…
