A little gem of a bar. A real home from home with an impressive and highly creative selection of beers. A true local feel with friendly attentive staff and good music. I will be back tonight!

We travelled as a group of 8, ordering a mixture of burgers, chicken wraps, and steak rolls. We were all shocked at the portion size!! The food was great, there was no complaints! I had the buffalo chicken wrap and fries which I'd recommend. The atmosphere was friendly and the waitress looking after us was attentive. Definitely visit here!

We were in New York for a four night trip. We arrived on a Wednesday around lunch and were looking for a local place to eat. My brother, who lives in NYC, recommended House of Brews, so we gave it a go. We got a table and service right away. The waitress was very nice and prompt. I ordered the... More

We stopped here on a list of top ten bars in NYC. It had a great beer selection. We got appetizers, and really enjoyed the menu selection that we went back the next day for Sunday breakfast. The breakfast pizza was awesome. And the jalapeno margarita was very interesting, and if you like spice, I would suggest trying it once.

Stopped in here for some Sunday Funday goodness and had a blast! It has a very local feel to it. Large beer selection and also some food. Be sure to check out their Sunday specials (bottomless mimosas or bloody mary's for $10 with purchase of a brunch item). Sam the bartender is the best!!!

After a terrible experience on our first night in New York we ate here as it was next to our hotel. Really great atmosphere, service and food and I really enjoyed trying the beer taster! Would recommend to anyone wanting good food and service away from the big chains.

There is a huge variety of beers and we enjoyed every one we tried. There is a very relaxed atmosphere. The food looked good but we didn't try any. The girl behind the bar was friendly and efficient and remembered us even though we'd only been once 3 days before. Will be our "local" the next time we're in NYC.
