Description: New York City's most famous landmark, the Empire State Building, now houses New York's number one brewery, a two-story 450-seat Heartland equipped with two large bars and four giant flat-screen TV's. Our full-service restaurant breathes new life into an area overrun with fast food chains. More than just a watering hole with great beer, we offer both visitors and locals excellent food and a feeling of home that only Heartland can offer.

“Heartland - Union Square”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Took relatives visiting from Sweden to have dinner here. They really enjoyed the "Tour of Beers" which is pictured above. We were 4 for dinner and we ordered soup, Pu-Pu Platter and then we all had NY Strip Steaks. Was a little annoyed that they brought out the soup with the Pu-Pu Platter. Then to top that off they brought out the steaks before we were done with the first two courses. I asked them to take the entrees back and they did so without a hassle. Even so at that point I felt a little rushed. This was on a Thursday and there wasn't anybody waiting for our table. We even all had something sweet with coffees after dinner. This was not a cheap meal as we had 4 courses. Food was very good but would have been better had they not rushed us.

“Great Food -Busy Location”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Very lively, busy atmosphere in this restaurant located at the Empire State Building. The butternut squash soup with pistachio was the best! The favorite entree was the chicken cranberry pecan salad. We truly enjoyed this eatery.

“Fantastic burgers, steak, ribs, cocktails and beer”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had lunch and dinner at this restaurant having come across it having just finished our tour at the Empire State.

For lunch we have Bison Burger and honestly it was one of the best burgers we have ever eaten! Cooked exactly the way we liked and accompanied by some fantastic fries. My wife loves her cocktail and she can recommend the Pitch Fork Punch! Myself, I like a beer and their choice of brewed beers was refreshing to the manufactured stuff we saw elsewhere. I especially recommend the Harvest Wheat Beer!

On our second visit, I choose the St. Louis ribs and my wife, the New York Strip steak. Again both were delicious and came the way we liked them

The service on both occasions was excellent. The food came in a timely manner. All in all a fantastic place to eat and if we return to NYC we will be going there again!!

“Great Food, Great Waiter”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We visited the Empire Stat Building and were extremely hungry and this was right in the Empire State Building. You can access the side of the restaurant from the lobby by the way. The desserts are HUGE by the way and fantastic.

“Great place”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We had to wait 20 minutes for a table which we didn't mind doing as the restaurant had a great feel an we where looking forward to having food here.. My partner really enjoyed the steak, i had tuna burger which wasn't to nice at all but i think that was just down to me. Would definitely go back and try something different.
