“Basic fare - great beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Had an evening meal there - got a table outside so could take in the view as people scrambled to avoid the rain (summer storm).

Grabbed their hamburger special - lived up to its reputation.

Good place to sit and relax

“Great NYC Neighborhood Pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

My husband and I and some extended family, frequented this pub at least five times over the course of a week visit to the Theater District. The service was friendly and very accommodating, and the food was great. Prices were very reasonable. Beer selection was extensive, and wait staff knew about the brews offered. This pub was our favorite "neighborhood" spot to have lunch and dinner. I can't rave enough about the overall experience.

“Nice Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Did not have a chance to eat here but stopped in twice during a recent NYC visit. Sat at the bar and watched a World Cup match the first time and Yankee game the second time. Had different bartenders but both were welcoming and friendly. They made it feel like a neighborhood tavern and that you were a regular. In addition, great selections of beer.

“Stop by for a drink!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

That's what we did. The bartender was great to us, gave great recommendations for beers, and was very pleasant. The atmosphere was great, the music wasn't obnoxious, and the value was very reasonable. Definitely will stop back here again!

“Very accommodating for family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We had a group of 10 on a busy night. Hostess said they were booked out but I said we would be quick because of our small children. She was very helpful and seated us in a great spot upstairs. No kids menu but pizzas were perfect for two kids. Pulled pork Cuban was delicious for me! Great beer selection.
