After a week of bad food and service this was heaven. We did not have high hopes when we arrived but were soon soaking up the great atmosphere. The waitress was great, food was great. The veal with a masala sauce was excellent as was my daughters chicken parmagiana. It was busy but we weren't rushed and did not have... More

Very nice old pub with a unique atmosphere with friendly staff. Our party ordered burgers, which took a while to arrive despite the place was not packed. They were pretty average and definitely overpriced ($18.50 before taxes). I would suggest to visit the place for a drink and appetizers at the bar.

We turned up on spec for lunch. The bar area is low lit, buzzy, with wood panels,tin ceilings and a step into old New York.. You can tick your tourist box for 'prohibition bar' . The restaurant area at the back is less atmospheric with a TV showing sport and the decor isn't 'old style' but the food is good,... More

We stopped in for a drink to check out the history before having dinner elsewhere. It was such a fun spot and after checking their menu we decided to stay for dinner. We shared an order of Prince Edward Island Mussels and I had the blue cheese burger. it was delish. It was such fun to sit the O Henry... More

Old building in the Gramercy area ...... Full of atmosphere. Bar is always busy. Attracts all ages. We always start with their deep fried zucchini and their great marinara sauce. Their daily specials are always a treat, as is their prime rib. Lots of pictures of famous people who have enjoyed the food and drink. Very nice tribute to their... More

What a great place. Real atmosphere, real beer, real food. Great range of beer and wine, including staples like Amstel and Guiness, but also a lot of great American brews on tap too. Brooklyn lager was my favourite, but there was plenty more to chose from. The food was great, we ate there twice and the food is very tasty... More

Beautiful bar, wonderful atmosphere. Food is okay. This may be the place for a quick bump - and then move on for a better meal elsewhere. But for a drink, it's great.

We're subletting an apartment for a couple of months two blocks away from Pete's and were told we had to try the city's oldest continually serving tavern. We stopped in early one evening on our way to a movie for a quick drink and burger and loved it. It reminded us of PJ Clark's but really had its own vibe... More
