Wonderful service and really delicious food. The only "complaint" is that I wish the menu were a bit larger (stuff like cornbread, maybe some more salad options, etc).

Try the green tomato Sangria. Sounds strange but it is great!

Too pricy, for the food and not to tasty.

I would suggest using a higher wattage light bulb in the ladies restroom as it was pretty dim & hard to see.

They strongly suggest ordering sangria pictures, when you only may want one or two glasses. Beware

My husband and I went to dinner with another couple. This was our second dinner here, and it was even better that the first one. We inhaled the ribs, fries, corn bread and cole slaw and had no room for dessert. Our food was served hot and all the staff were welcoming and very pleasant. The only negative comment would be that the after dinner coffee was not served hot.

From Our Editors

Pat and Gina Neely have always loved welcoming guests into their kitchen. After co-founding a string of family-style barbecue restaurants in their home state of Tennessee, the couple catapulted into stardom when they began hosting their own Food Network show, Down Home with the Neelys.

This desire to share their rib-sticking Southern cooking eventually led Pat and Gina to open Neely’s Barbecue Parlor on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Down-home charm doesn't just pervade the menu, it also spills into the decor. The restaurant's seven dining areas evokes the spirit of a stately Southern home with hand-selected vintage furniture, broad windows, and luxuriously patterned wallpaper and curtains.

Cooking from Across the South

Although the Neelys hail from Tennessee, the menu at their New York outpost embraces flavors from all over the South. Patrons slather ribs with their choice of Memphis-style spices or Kansas City–style sweet and sticky sauce. All the meats on offer come from New York–founded Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors.

To complement the entrees, chefs cook up down-home side dishes, including whipped buttermilk mashed potatoes, cornbread with butter, and brussels sprouts tossed with bacon and onion. Even the drink menu shows its Southern roots by highlighting premium bourbons such as Michter's Sour Mash and Pappy Van Winkle.
