“Great casual food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Great casual food in a 60's hippie culture decor. Great, huge burgers. Fantastic onion rings. Tuesday 5 tacos for 5 bucks can't be beat. Wednesday wings great. The beer selection is second to none.
Borderline neighborhood, but perfectly safe right around restaurant.

“Great Local Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We decided to try this restaurant due to the suggestion of our daughter and son-in-law. The menu is huge and VERY creative. It seems to be a bar with really good food, but there is nothing wrong that. The menu includes about 60 different burgers with every conceivable accompaniment. There are many fantastic appetizers, salads, sandwiches, soups, bar-b-que, and entrees. In addition, there are many vegan and vegetarian options. There is a very large selection of local beers on tap that should satisfy every palate.

Service was very good and very knowledgable. We would all return any chance we got. Every meal we ordered, no duplicates, was excellent!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Had heard good things about Wherehouse so decided to check it out on a Saturday afternoon. It took nearly two hours for a burger and a sandwich. And after that wait, the food was mediocre. No plans to hurry back. Probably better suited for the evening beer crowd.

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Late lunch on a Tuesday which was "Taco Tuesday." 5 for $5 tacos with a choice of about 7 or 8 fillings (must all be the same filling to get the deal). Opted for pulled pork tacos. Also ordered the Heisenburger, basically a Reuben with a burger in place of corned beef. Not in a beer mood at the time which was good since we would have been disappointed that they only had about 6 drafts on tap out of the usual 20-some brews. Food was good. Didn't realize all burgers are 1/2 pounders until I got it! I must have been hungry because I ate the whole thing, thanks to several napkins. Small crowd but not unusual for after 1 pm. Seems like a fun hangout- casual and unassuming. Not the nicest neighborhood and parking is tough, but it seems like the area is staging a bit of a comeback. Huge selection of food with a hippie, music lover, monster movie decor thing going on.

“Newburgh Beer in a Newburgh Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

As a former Town of Newburgh resident, I was excited to see there was a new Newburgh Brewery that was bringing our their first beer this past week. We couldn't make it there for the Friday premiere, so we stopped by on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I love this bar. It's old school with a creaky wooden floor and long old bar. Old albums and concert posters decorate the walls. We had nachos and zucchini sticks. Both were better than average for bar food. We sampled the Newburgh brewery Sessionable and Stout. Not bad, but for seconds we all had different beers and there were many to choose from. The service was good, but I think my demanding friends confused our waitress in their quest for a variety of beers. The menu, (including a separate large 3 page burger menu) was extensive and diverse. Too bad we weren't really hungry. I really liked this bar, and hope to be back in the future. I also hope the Newburgh Brewery continues to flourish and grow. Their artwork is great!
