Many great burger choices - means many returns to try them all! Service was great also. A little noisy, but it is basically a bar, but with great food!

Essex St. Pub has a cool menu, and does have great drink specials, and a good vegetarian menu. So overall, food and drinks are definitely worth a visit! The cornbread is amazing. Probably sounds kind of strange, but oh my god the cornbread is soooo good. A few gripes: their vegetarian jackfruit bbq sandwich - the bbq sauce is just... More

So I went over whit my friends, we ask in order for wings, casinos, and nachos, we share, and that was a meal! Food is always fresh, beer is cold, I love Guinness and they always keep it in the right temperature.

I was surprised when my husband said this place had vegan options on the menu. It's hard finding vegan food in the restaurants in Buffalo and the surrounding suburbs. I got the vegan club and it was delish. My husband got the vegan bbg sandwich and it was messy but he said it was really good. I'll be back for... More

Smoked, BBQ chicken wings were out of this world delicious. The blue cheese was homemade and the carrots and celery were hand cut. Awesome!!! The brisket was very tough and the sides were just okay. My friends each had an unmemorable burger. I would definitely return for beer and wings but will go elsewhere for brisket...like Suzy Q's on Niagara.

After we got the beers waitress told us if we wanted another one we would have to go to the bar, too busy talking I guess, should have been cleaning. This bar is... More

Stopped in here recently to simply get something to drink and perhaps something small for us to share. My partner went to the rest room, and came back with no good impression from its cleanliness. We had a couple of cold drinks and sat outside as weather was cooperative. My partner snapped a photo of me at 640pm. We ordered... More

We wanted good bar food and settled on Essex Street Pub. It was a very cold day in Buffalo. They had the heat set at 50°. I'm talking cold. It would have been a little more tolerable if they served hot coffee or hot tea. NO HOT BEVERAGES was the reply from the not so pleasant bartender waitress. I think... More
