Visiting on business, walking distance from Mid-Town area. Has an upstairs/downstairs to choose from. Bar is long and is chuck full of libations and big screens. Perfect setting for watching your favorite sport team! Service was good, not to exciting. Food was very good. I recommend the buffalo chicken wings, but if you don't like spicy recommend to tone it... More

Tucked in on a rainy day for quick bite. Ordered tacos and could hardly eat them. Pork inside had cardboard taste and not pleasant at all. Very little sauce of some sort on top. Horrible.

Not for the first time I am caught by the TripAdvisor score system - I would not grade this average - it is good - but not very good. This is a bar that serves food as opposed to a restaurant, certainly in the main area, there may be quieter places further back. If you want a quiet romantic night... More

Has a huge beer selection but the food is less than average. Potato crusted chicken stripes were super dry- typical bar food. Best to go here for just beer

Maybe I'm getting old but I found it loud. It was super cute pub/bistro place across from the hotel I was saying at. We shared the brisket sliders and nachos. Both were amazing! The nachos were a huge order and were really good. The menu looked great all around so it was hard to choose. The craft beer list was... More

Very close to Times Square and yet priced very reasonably, this was a great find thanks to the recommendations on TripAdvisor. A good choice of beers, the Guinness was a great pint! Service was friendly, the atmosphere was great with sports being shown on the TV yet good music being played. It never got too busy, we could always find... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
