Located in Coney Island, Peggy O'Neill's is the number one place to grab a burger and hear great music in the Coney island area.

Peggy O'Neill's opened in 2001 and is located adjacent to MCU park home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. We have a dedicated staff to ensure you have a memorable time weather you're grabbing a beer and burger before the game or coming to see one of our many bands or Dj's.

The name Peggy O'Neill dates back to the Titanic in 1912. Margaret Devaney, often called Peggy for short, was born in Sligo County, Ireland. She found herself aboard the Titanic with only a bag full of her clothes and a 7inch knife that her brother John gave her the morning of her departure. Peggy and her two friends were peeling apples for the ship only hours before the announcement was made to evacuate the ship. Peggy finally got aboard a life boat only when she could see there were no children or women left on the ship. While being lowered down to the water the oars got stuck because of firm new ropes and would likely cause the life boat to flip. Peggy quickly grabbed her knife and started to cut the new ropes and heroically saving the life boat dubbed "Ismay's Boat".
