History and food

This place is filled with history. Visited for dinner. Food was Very Good....appetizers and Filet on Stone. The bench I sat on became uncomfortable after a whiles so I would recommend a table with chairs instead ad of the booth seat things. Make sure you walk around. Get there before 5 when... read more

This place is another very old tavern/restaurant which opened back in the 1800s I believe. We stopped in for lunch and I had their fish & chips (actually had a salad instead of fries). The portion was large (see picture) but it did not taste that great for some reason, not sure why. In addition, our server took forever to... More

Lovely place to eat but while the food was solid, it wasn't quite worth what was paid and the drink prices were outrageous.

We visited the 9/11 Memorial & Museum on a Sunday morning and took the guided tour, and then headed to historic Fraunces Tavern for lunch. When our group of 14 arrived, we stood around for about five minutes before the hostess, Renee, showed up. Although we had 12:30 reservations and the place was practically empty, they clearly weren’t ready for... More

Wonderful old building, lots of interlinked old rooms with atmosphere to match....interesting decor from ye olde times and/or more modern beers being used as clever decor. Enormous beer selection, good food too. Two of us were History buffs and really enjoyed being able to pop upstairs while the rest of our party ate dessert....we looked around the museum.

We stopped in for dinner without reservation and got in for 2 people. Very fun atmosphere and good food. Both foodies and history buffs will enjoy. Good service as well.

I wanted to really give this place 4 stars because of its charm, but the place needs to get their organizational skills in order. We had a 12:30 reservation for 14 people, and when we walked in, no hostess at the station. We waited for about 5 minutes (really thinking it was seat yourself!) when Renee walked up to the... More

VERY cool bar and the history of it made it even better. Service was great from the bar to a table. The food was surprisingly excellent. We had oysters, fried meatballs and chicken with shrimp. All were excellent

We started our pub crawl of the ten oldest bars in NYC at Fraunces, and what a place it is. The multiroom restaurant/bar simply reeks of history. Fraunces was a meeting place for George Washington. We did not have a meal at Fraunces, but the beer and appetizers framed by this most historical of all buildings was wonderful. Do not... More
