Description: The Porterhouse Brewing Co. at Fraunces Tavern, is located in one of the city's most historic landmarks in the downtown Financial District. The Porterhouse offers a large range of small batch and specialty beers, serving traditional American food with a strong Irish influence. Fraunces Tavern has been a part of our city's history since 1762. Now under new management, you can expect a modern experience in an authentic historical space while enjoying great food, drinks, and atmosphere.

A friend recommended this restaurant. It's open on weekends and is located just off Wall Street, so it's a good choice when you are exploring the financial district. Good food, good service, a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately I didn't have time to visit the museum.

AWESOME food and atmosphere! Cannot say enough good things about this restaurant experience. From the moment you enter, to look at the décor of each of the rooms, the old wooden bar with one of the finest Whiskey selections and the old fashion open lights.
Attentive staff, wonderful appetizers, and the Shepherd's Pie done in traditional Irish fashion with lamb. Their specialty pot pie and burger in ale did not disappoint the rest of our party and the wait staff was most helpful to select a fine NY ale to compliment the meal
After the meal, take a trip upstairs to where history was made with George Washington-the museum is well worth a trip back to the past
We found this place on the tip of a NYC policeman as we asked for a 'good meal'. Needless to say it was a GREAT meal and we WILL be back

My wife found this place during a recent stay in lower Manhattan. We had dinner reservations at another restaurant so only intended to stop in for a drink and light snack. The atmosphere was great and the menu and the food coming out of the kitchen all looked fantastic. They have a great selection of beers including many from their own brewery in Dublin. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next day for lunch so we could try more food (and beer). It lived up to expectations and we will definitely return to try some more.

We planned to stop at the Dead Rabbit Grog and Grocery next door, but it seemed uninviting, so we diverted to the Porterhouse. The place was very busy when we arrived and service was slow as a result. It's definitely a tavern, with a large bar area, and small tables scattered all around.

I had the Applewood BLT which was quite good, and my husband had the Prawn Po' Boy. By the time we'd finished our lunch, things had quieted down. The table next to us (squeezed in very tightly) recommended the Shepherd's Pie and Chicken Pot Pie.

Service was friendly and good, but the kitchen was very slow.

From the excellent beer to the historic surroundings and the live folk music, the perfect way to spend a cold Sunday afternoon.
