I was surprised when my husband said this place had vegan options on the menu. It's hard finding vegan food in the restaurants in Buffalo and the surrounding suburbs. I got the vegan club and it was delish. My husband got the vegan bbg sandwich and it was messy but he said it was really good. I'll be back for... More

Smoked, BBQ chicken wings were out of this world delicious. The blue cheese was homemade and the carrots and celery were hand cut. Awesome!!! The brisket was very tough and the sides were just okay. My friends each had an unmemorable burger. I would definitely return for beer and wings but will go elsewhere for brisket...like Suzy Q's on Niagara.

After we got the beers waitress told us if we wanted another one we would have to go to the bar, too busy talking I guess, should have been cleaning. This bar is... More

Stopped in here recently to simply get something to drink and perhaps something small for us to share. My partner went to the rest room, and came back with no good impression from its cleanliness. We had a couple of cold drinks and sat outside as weather was cooperative. My partner snapped a photo of me at 640pm. We ordered... More

We wanted good bar food and settled on Essex Street Pub. It was a very cold day in Buffalo. They had the heat set at 50°. I'm talking cold. It would have been a little more tolerable if they served hot coffee or hot tea. NO HOT BEVERAGES was the reply from the not so pleasant bartender waitress. I think... More

This is a cool little joint. Neat atmosphere, great beer selection. Just a very relaxed and casual place. Usually open until 4am on weekends if you are looking for a late night cocktail.

While this is a little place, the food and the staff are big! I highly recommend this joint for a burger or any of the other items on their menu. Try the Mac-Attack Burger - hickory smoked burger, melted American cheese, jalapeño casinos atop - for $11 and worth every penny!

This place is a bit strange. We stopped in for lunch. Empty except for a woman behind the bar. No tables in the main room, just stools and shelves along the perimeter. And the back room only had 2 small tables. Did not look promising Until we were given menus. Essex St Pub has the most creative pub menu we... More
