Joe Allen Restaurant is wheelchair accessible.

In May, 1965, Joe Allen opened the restaurant that bears his name.

That same year, the cast of the ill-fated show “Kelly” gave Joe a poster of their show. It ran one performance, and they thought it should hang, well, somewhere. Since then, it’s become a Broadway tradition for those unlucky flops to adorn our walls. Everyone remembers the hits, but we revel in the flops.

“Chorus kids with bad knees” were the first people that braved midtown’s far west side way back when. Opening a restaurant west of Eighth Avenue was a gamble, but the Broadway community embraced Joe Allen’s restaurant with open arms. A hamburger cost 75¢, and the most expensive ticket to a Broadway show was $7.50. A lot has changed since then, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to provide a quality experience at a reasonable price.

Our menu changes daily, although certain favorites are always available, and while the service is informal, it does not sacrifice professionalism. If you’re looking for dinner before the theater, after the theater, a quick drink, or a quiet business lunch, you simply can’t make a better choice.
