What a find! Fraunces Tavern is an amazing historic landmark in NYC. We had a lovely brunch on a Saturday complete with live music. The wait staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. A step into each room of the tavern is a step into history. The food was delicious, presented beautifully and reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back and... More

I am a sucker for historical sites, and here is where George Washington bid farewell to his troupes at the end of the Revolutionary War. The decor still speaks of colonial times while the menu offers delicious choices and the bar a wide variety of drinks, including a broad selection of whiskeys.

It had been about 20 years since my last visit. I was surprised in the bar the very loud hip hop music. It was very hard to hold a conversation. There are quieter areas to eat and drink which I recommend if you are with someone. I ordered the bison burger and my wife had the regular burger. The bison... More

Called in for an early afternoon drink and a bite of late lunch, ended up selecting the more formal dinning area for a lovely meal. Then moved through to the more typical bar area for an post meal drink, we were still there 4 hours later, full of the atmosphere and great beers and wines. We decided to eat again... More

Visited the bar for a drink after a helicopter flight over the city. The bar was very nice and has an amazing selection of drinks. Great for beer, whiskey and gin lovers. I tried a whiskey from their very large selection and was not disappointed. The restaurant looked amazing, but sadly not there around dinner or lunch. Would recommend it's... More

We drove about an hour into New York from Long Island to go to this Restaurant because of the history associated with it. It was first opened in 1762 and remained open and used by British officers through the revolution. General Washington brought his officers here to bid them farewell after the war ended. The atmosphere was great and it... More

Fair prices and good $30 prix fixe lunch/brunch which includes two mimosas or bloody Mary's. Crowded most times, so make a reservation!

The Fraunces Tavern is a wonderful place that has been in business for hundreds of years. George Washington supposedly ate here, and the place is filled with antique (authentic and otherwise) artifacts that were there "since the day." We had lunch here, and I enjoy a Cobb salad with roasted shrimp that was superb. It came with a citrus dressing... More

If you are going to this restaurant with a large party you should check out the room you will be in first. We were a party of 16 and placed in a room that was dark, dank and uncomfortable. We had three tables placed together and asked if we could get three checks- our waitress was definitely not agreeable to... More

I enjoy spending time in historic old buildings. The tavern was well preserved and offered and a wonderful lunch! My wife had the salmon salad and I ate the fish and chips. We shared both of our meals and each was quite good! The atmosphere was great and a good stop for lunch on our busy first day of visiting... More
