Make a reservation is your attending on good sport event such as Sunday football. Ton of seating with plenty of Flatscreen with various team games. I don’t recommend the sliders as they are microwave “white castle”. The wings are truly good!!! Overall great experience.

Great service (which is far from normal in NYC bars...) with lots of beers and TV screens. Good food. Always seems to be busy which makes for a great atmosphere. I can't wait to return.
