We went there for lunch. First time in 44 years of living in and around NYC. Menu was fairly simple. Incredible selection of draught and bottled beers. Not elegant, but cheerful quasi-original design. The oysters at $1 a piece were divine (probably part of the Oysterfest) which expired Sept. 25, but they were available for $6 for a half dozen....

Met friends for a later dinner on a Wednesday evening while visiting NYC. A huge beer and whiskey menu that should satisfy just about everyone. The food was excellent with portions that were not too large but just right for members of our group who ranged in age from the 20s to 50s. Dessers were also great as was the... More

After a visit to lower Manhattan we decided to eat in the Porter House at Fraunces Tavern and the food was surprisingly good. We were looking for a quick lunch and a pint of beer and were not disappointed. Probably a bit pricy if you have kids but what the heck, you are eating in a place where George Washington... More

I'd last visited Fraunces Tavern decades ago as a boy, so my wife's and my visit was effectively our first visit. The $30 brunch was an outstanding value, which included two drinks, an appetizer, and a main. My Scotch Eggs were well-prepared and -presented, and my corned beef hash excellent. Our server was very friendly and responsive to our requests.... More

We didn't eat here. We only went to the museum upstairs. They have interesting artifacts from the revolutionary period, like a clip of Washington's hair and old newspaper articles from the day. There is a room of flags and a room of paintings. Anybody interested in the Revolutionary War or a new fan of Alexander Hamilton will enjoy this small... More

We first tried the Fraunces tavern a couple of years ago and had a fab time - was 4pm in the afternoon, me & hubby shared sliders, tried a couple of craft beers and loved it. On our 2nd visit with friends, the bar was very quiet at 9pm - so quiet , the mood just called for a quick... More

But I loved this place. Service was attentive but laid back, the food was great and loved the live music. If I ever had to live in NY I would make this my local. Sincere apologies to the marvellous waitress who not only remembered my visits 3 days apart but also what I was drinking when I was not even... More

Got out of the rain to sip a brew, or two. Wife ordered Porterhouse Red (wonderful stuff with a delightful creamy foamy head) and I had the Ale house Cream Ale (too much of an aftertaste for me). So my second beer was the Oyster Stout. This can be combined with three oysters for 12 dollars. Forget the Stout and... More

Washington et al strategized here - lots of history including marginal museum upstairs. Tavern and restaurant has old world charm and good food though bar service is rather slow.

Found this on the web, from outside was not sure but once inside loved the decor; the price fix came with appetizer, entree and 2 mimosas or 2 bloody Mary's; both were delicious. My wife had a salad and the omelette I had the fruit salad and the Irish breakfast both meals were excellent and sizes large enough for the... More
