“good lunch specials, nice portion sizes”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Went here for the first time today and really liked it. Had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich with home fries and small salad. Everything was excellent and prices are good too.
Service could've been a little quicker. The restaurant was not busy and we had to flag down the waitress for drink refills and the check. Otherwise, the story of the building is an interesting one, going way back to Revolutionary War times.

“Fun, boisterous, casual and great drinks”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

It was a late night - and Ear just seemed like a good idea. It is a cross between Brooklyn Social and a hearty english pub. There didn't seem to be any rules about where the tables were moved or what wait staff you asked for drinks; they were all helpful and interested in you having a good time. It is quite crunched at the front. It would be fun to have a spot at the bar, but standing at the bar is really not that nice. The tables nearby are great - and the tables at the back can be moved any which way you want. The back tables are probably better when you are part of a group as they are a little bit (just a little) removed. The prices reasonable, the beer cold and service great - I would recommend Ear any evening.

“As Good As it Gets !!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Went here on a recommendation from a friend and boy was it worth it. If you want good eats at a reasonable price (mussels were superb) a good selection of beers on tap, great atmosphere and some hot hot jazz, then this is the place for you!!!! For the Sunday night jazz session, get there early 6.30/ 7pm for food and get a seat in the front room so as you can see the band who were top class. Staff are really friendly and attentive also.

Best night we had in New York !!!!!

“Great Guinness”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

We visited on a cold night in January, and we were absolutely thrilled to find a cozy pub. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but they do a lot with their limited space. We had some tasty shrimp appetizers and moist cheesecake. I was quite impressed especially since pub food usually is standard fare, and the Guinness was poured perfectly.
