Great Atmosphere Great Staff and Great Drinks

This was a return trip for me to this great place but the first visit for my wife. She appreciated it just as much as I did - if not more. The history in this building is astounding. We didn't have time to tour the museum upstairs. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable -... read more

Was taken here by clients on my first visit to NYC and it really impressed me. Interesting history tied up with intriguing and delicious beers. I loved this place and strongly recommend it.

Food is really great here, my husband is a hamburger addict and said it was the best he has ever had. Only disappointment was we couldn't eat in the main dining room as only brunch was available (weekend). We ate in the tavern for lunch which was nice but a bit noisy as we were seated right next to the... More

In a city with countless interesting bars, Fraunces is a must see. It's in a building purported to be the oldest in the city, with a museum enclosed as well. Fraunces has many dining and drinking areas, including a whiskey bar, a chef's table, banquet rooms, etc. Yet it doesn't feel sprawling but atmospheric and compact. We sat at the... More

My wife and I stopped in for a couple drinks as part of our historic bar bucket list. How could we pass up the site of Washington's farewell address to his troops? Staff was very friendly, and the beer list was impressive. My wife loved the Fruli beer. I was expecting bill to be large considering we were in NYC,... More

Had the sliders and order of fries. Thought the price for the fries was a bit pricey both the food was good. Staff was friendly and nice different atmosphere. Not far from the South Ferry subway station, so easy to find.

Went in a very cold day, and had a wonderful Chicken Pot Pie big enough to share! The many different rooms are wonderful, you can see the history in the place. The server was very helpful, and the prices are great! Everyone should try it!

Restored historic tavern with period furniture from the Revolutionary era. Cheese platter and Ruben sandwich were great.

We had a very nice lunch here on a Sunday after visiting Alexander Hamilton's gravesite at Trinity Church, which is an easy few blocks' walk away. There is a very extensive beer list, which was fun (and somewhat bewildering) to peruse. I had a delicious stew. We had made reservations on Open Table less than half an hour beforehand, but...

Our expectations were low, but they exceeded them. Oysters and iron skillet chicken great with nice beer and wine selection. We walked into the bars which looked cozy and wish we could have stayed. Building and history are worth the price of dinner.

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
