Go for the views and ambiance, don’t expect much for dinner. Average to slightly over-priced beer, wine and cocktails. Eating options are Costco meats on the grill and corn on the cob. Can get very busy and boisterous on the weekends. Weekdays and before 6p...More

A great place to chill and have a beer, and something from a grill, or fresh salad! Very relaxed atmosphere, good music and simple fresh food, and by far, the best view of the Manhattan skyline and the East River at affordable prices.
