If you are looking for something different in the financial district Fraunces tavern is that. Classic American fare in a colonial setting. Choose wisely when drinking as some bottled beer could run you a whopping $38 each. All three types of steak we had were cooked perfectly and the meals had good portions. Service was very quick and efficient, although... More

After riding the Staten Island ferry, my husband and I were looking for a place for lunch. Fraunces Tavern fit the bill. We ate in the Porterhouse Brewery downstairs, which had a nice atmosphere. The sandwiches were reasonably priced for NYC. I ordered pastrami with Swiss cheese and sauerkraut. The potion wasn't as large as I've receive in some NYC... More

Went there with friends after reading that George Washington's tooth and lock of his hair was there. Happened to get there as the tour was starting and it was definitely worth it. Our guide was full of interesting facts about NYC at the time of the Revolution and many of the people involved. Definitely worth a visit for history buffs.

The food here isn't going to knock your socks off, but the location and atmosphere make this a worthwhile choice. I had the chicken pot pie and was very pleased. The rest of my party (of six) were merely satisfied. The dining room is a bit noisy at full capacity but the service was great.

Randomly in the area - have been to the excellent Fraunces Tavern restaurant many times but decided to try Porterhouse Brewery downstairs. So glad we did - great service fantastic food and the beer - the plain porter in particular was great. Highly recommend if you're in the area

This might be one of those "have to eat there once" just because of the building's history. Food was pretty good (turkey burger, barbecue, portobello sandwich). If I wasn't gluten free--get the chicken pot pie! It looked amazing and my husband loved it! The drawback to this place is that it's very loud. Like you can barely talk to the... More

Enjoyed the small museum in the upper levels. I appreciated the student entrance fee pricing. The entire feel of the place was great. Nicely restored. We sat at the bar for drinks and appetizers. Our bartender was great and very friendly. He is from Ireland and listening to him talk was wonderful. Food and drinks were delicious! Lots of nooks... More

I brought a friend from Italy here to eat in an historic place. This is where George Washington said farewell to his officers after the Revolution was over. The ambiance is quaint and gives you a sense of going back in time to the 18th century, and the foor was very good!

I work a half block from Fraunces Tavern, the legendary inn on the corner or Broad and Pearl Street. It's a great place for a fine array of brews and good hearty food. Because it's my local, I'm almost loathe to give it a good review because I want to selfishly keep it for myself. But that would not be... More

We happened upon this place when wandering around the financial district after getting off the Staten Island Ferry and it turned out to be an absolute highlight of our New York trip. We liked it so much on our first day that we immediately made a reservation in the restaurant for our last evening in the city. It was early... More
