Pleased as punch with lunch at the Knick. They have the best beer selection in the area. The Waitstaff is pleasant and efficient. Lunch was good for bar food. Id go back again.

The small group I was assembled with had a back room private party. The appetizer I ordered tasted good but the ranch dressing was apparently spoiled. Within three hours of eating my appetizer I started to get incredibly ill. I called and spoke with the manager and all he did was apologize, saying that he was sorry that happened. As... More

The steak salad was as promised in other reviews... actually one of the best I've had. When ordering medium rare - you get medium rare. Tasty! Salmon salad the same - perfectly... More

This may look like any old neighborhood bar when you first walk in, but keep walking back and left and out the door into a private courtyard surrounded by old brick buildings, decked out in strings of white lights and umbrellas that will keep off the hot sun or a sprinkle.

Went for drinks and light dinner with husband, waited 30 minutes for waitress to come to table for drink order then 20 more for beer to be served. Ordered appetizers and dinner then - waited 30 minutes. All of the food was served at once - dinner was cold. The waitress never returned - we weren't offered a second beer,... More
