“Great food but NOISY”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Had a great meal here, good food, great value and the beer is fabulous, but the music was so loud we could hardly hear the waitress. Definitely a venue for the younger clientele, great atmosphere and friendly staff (we are just a bit past it, unfortunately !!)

“Go for the Beer Only”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Took a chance on NY Beer Company after reading reviews elsewhere. Probably shouldn't go to a sports bar expecting anything more than average bar food. I know everyone's palate is different but still amazes me when i read all these raving reviews of food at a joint only to then visit and find it average to meh at best. And that's about what you get at NYBC. Flights of beer and your typical bar food of burgers, fries, salads, etc. Actually, got the crab cakes, not bad, but being from Maryland, definitely nothing to write about. It's a large space with plenty of tvs around, so probably good place if you've got a large group of friends just looking to drink beer and hang out. Don't go expecting much from the food though. Service was great though but being described as a beer bar, thought they would have more selections. If you happen to be in the area just wanting a huge sports bar to hang out and drink beer, perhaps worth a visit. For me, can check this one off the list.

“Amazing Pizza”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Their pizza was made with homemade whole wheat or regular dough. It felt like I had made it myself. So good! The atmosphere is very fun and bar-like. Service was great!

“Gave it a go”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

Went here two nights in a row since we were staying right across the street at Intercontinental. Draft selection was very good and plenty of bottle choices also. Staff was friendly and attentive and food was good also. Not very crowded either night during the week and no problem getting seated or served quickly.
