Having traveled all the way from Australia and going to this place because my wife loves sex in the city. We couldn't of been more disappointed. Lousy customer service. The places looks great and has a lot of history and a lot of famous people go there but it's seriously not worth the visit

Had an early dinner here a couple of days ago with two friends. Didn't need a reservation as there were tables available outside. The food was good - had the grilled salmon. The service was very good.

Didn't know the history of this place. Says being the oldest bar New York. Stopped by for a quick beer prior to our 39 steps show. Excellent.

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
