My husband and I went here for supper and drinks on the Fourth of July. Great food - Great atmosphere - Our waiter (Seth) was very accommodating. Onion rings were fabulous - Sandwich was so packed, I could not finish it all. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - We are from Boston but will visit here again. Even came home with one of... More

Went to see a band play and had some food before hand. chicken dippers were nice and spicy. Good selection of drinks. What was really nice was you could hear the band yet still hold a conversation. If you wish you could pick a table near the entrance and watch New York at night

The menù has the typical plates of an american grill(burger, fries, blt, chicken wings etc..) We took a regular burger and a BLT, they both were great, but not extraordinary.. The fries instead were the best we ever tried!!

Stopped in before a show, had appetizers and drinks. Good chili nachos...! Staff was attentive and price was average. Went back for drinks and people watching, nice street side seating with open windows.. Bartenders during the day were not interested in their quality of service. Actually both stepped outside to smoke with 10-15 people at the bar...was tempted to serve... More

If you get a table right in the front you can eat and people watch at the same time. Food was good: nothing extraordinary but very decent.

Could not, get near the place had to push way in and the staff more interested in world cup than serving. having pushed our way in we waited 20 minutes to be served before walking out. seems the money from the drinkers is more wanted than happy meal eaters

Great spot across from our hotel that was quite affordable for NYC to grab beers and some bar food to snack on while watching the World Cup. Mike the bartender remembers you by name and makes sure your glass is always full. Great experience.

Stopped in for a drink at the end of the day on a Friday night, the music was out of this world and our table was right next the sidewalk so we could people watch, listen to great music and have a drink for reasonable prices. Really could not ask for a more perfect evening in New York! We did... More

Loud and busy ... But a real gem. Many different 'craft beer' choices. Mac Cheese and Mediteranian Salad was wonderful. Waiter was attentive and informative. Nothing flashy, just a hole in the wall but I enjoyed myself and have the T-Shirt to prove it!
