I never had a great experience at the Ginger Man but it was fine to go with some friends for lunch or a light bite. The food is typical dull bar food, not of a good quality but quick for lunch. Order something safe and it should be fine. That is until my salad turned out to be fully rotted... More

Great beer selection...friendly servers...and cool vibe. The wings were excellent (and not your typical wings) and duck confit quesadilla was out of this world!!!

This was our first stop in SONO and we weren't disappointed. Excellent, friendly service, great selection of beers and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended in my opinion. Will be back.

Overall, a great place for 20-30 somethings Fridays and Saturdays, especially in the summer with the patio outside. Food is alright, but as always becomes fantastic after a couple heavy brews. I love the ambiance whether going in a big group or just you and a friend. Always a good time to be had.

We ate here at fourish one Sunday it was quiet. We have been here before on Friday and Saturday nights and it is busy in a good way. The German pretzel is pricey at five dollars but it is really good. I had the burger sliders which were good followed by the pulled pork sandwich which was really great, a... More

First time at this Washington Street restaurant in SoNo. This was the former Amberjacks Restaurant location, and is located in an old bank building. The walk in safe is still located toward the back of the dining room and is a fun feature. The outdoor patio is, I believe one of the only, if not the only, outdoor patio, in... More

Great beer selection in a very busy bar and restaurant. Went on a Saturday night and the buzz in the place was palatable. As the evening progressed, the buzz grew. Outside patio adds to the atmosphere.

The variety of beers was fun to review, and great tasting. Each of our sandwiches was really good, especially the fries that came with them. My son is moving to this area for work and will return to The Ginger Man.

Great for a 30something crowd, the sweet potato clam chowder is amazing, burgers are good too but the huge beer selection is what really keeps people coming in
