Wasn't sure what we were getting into coming here. It was planned for us by a friend. I heard that it was a boat. Got there and it is more like a barge, decked into a bar/lounge. It was pretty cool. Music was good. Heard that they have a DJ sometimes. Liked the view, even though it was mostly of... More

This restaurant is very casual where you order your own food and drinks at central area, pick up your food at another bar area and have to search for a table and chairs. We ordered mussels, calamari and fries. Even though we picked the food up right away it was cold and tasted like it was cooked fifteen minutes ago.... More

After a water tour.. this place is a nice walk down the dock. They have lots of outdoor seating and the views are decent but what shines here is the local atmosphere, the friendly staff and the food. Yes it is unusual to find a staff at a restaurant where the people are actually happy and seem to enjoy their... More

I usually come here on a week day after work, but the last time I came here was on a Saturday. Usually after work I have to wait a long time on line, I think they only allow a certain amount of people on the boat at a time so you have to wait for people to come off in... More

Great place for a drink and a snack. You're on a railroad barge with and old train, a water boat that you can climb up on and sit at the top with a cocktail and just chill out. Loved it, great find. Lot's of places to sit, large bar, good sea-food, places is wild. Fun time was had by all,... More

Perfect for a Happy Hour after work or a chilled laid back day where you haven't much to do. The food is snack bar food and sangria is watered down, but the vibe is cool. No need to dress up here - comfy and casual. After all you are on a boat. Find a seat and grab it b/c its... More

We were looking for fun place to have a view drinks. When its summer in New York you absolutely have to be outside. The Frying Pan is moored at Pier 66 which is three blocks north of Chesea Piers, on Pier 66 at West 26th Street (right on the Hudson River). By taxi, drop off at 26th between 11th and... More

The restaurant is on a floating boat and doc along the Hudson River. On a nice day, its a relaxing place to have a drink, lunch, dinner or snack. The food is typical bar food, but was very good. We had 3 adults and ordered the BBQ Chicken basket, calamari, the Clambake and Hummus with veggies and flatbread. It was... More

When I say medriocre I don't mean bad, but really nothing to write home about, especially the food. And especially the smell of fried oil with which they cook the food. Then again, if you're up to some easy chicken wing snack and well priced beers, you're in for a real nice treat, because the location of this joint is... More

We happened upon this restaurant by accident, or rather a very loving God led us here. After walking the High Line we took a set of steps down and walked to the Hudson right up to this docked railroad barge. It was a weekday in May so we didn't have much company but what people were there were unusually friendly,... More
