Hurley's Steakhouse and Pub is a steakhouse, pub and traditional American spot.

On the menu, expect traditional pub grub and Irish fare, like Irish-style fish and chips and bangers and mash. You'll also find surf and turf and linguine and clams. There's a raw bar as well. (You can see the full menu here.)

It's received mixed reviews so far on Yelp, but it's still early days for the new steakhouse.

Michelle L., who reviewed it on Dec. 31, said, "For a brand new spot in New Rochelle, the atmosphere and interior design was refreshing. New Rochelle needs more places with that feel. Food was good, but they need a little more organization when serving a larger table!"

Chris C. noted, "Way overpriced for what you get! Food was poor. Waitstaff unknowledgeable. Drinks were good--they actually know how to make a proper cocktail. Decor was pleasant."

Check it out: Hurley's is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.

Yelper Edison P., who was among the first to review it on Dec. 19, said, "This tiny restaurant has the best arepas in New Rochelle--I got the arepa with shrimp and mango and it was yummy. Also, I got a juice that was made with passion fruit, mango and brown sugar cane that was flavorful and natural."

D M. added, "Stopped in and found this place by accident. Cute and quaint little eatery. ... Really good and delicious."
