When I visited: Late September 2013. What I had: Indiana Pale Ale on tap, sample of Farmer Jonís Oatmeal Stout, glass of white wine for the wife. What I liked: Gorgeous, towering, and old-fashioned bar, convenient location for Empire State tourists, draught list has good style variation and the beers are above average in quality, we didnít eat anything but the food menu looked appetizing. What I disliked: Took a while to get the serverís attention despite the bar being empty, though he was friendly once we ordered. Prices are on the high side. Would I go back? Possibly. Overall Rating: 76

Certainly worth a visit. Possibility of tasting flights of the homebrews. Decent burgers. Would go back for some more tasters and a burger if I was in NYC.

Iíve worked right across the street for 4 years and finally stopped in here. Huge, cavernous dining room down stairs. Packed on a Friday night, but I did get a seat at the bar. A medium selection of average draft beers. Rattle and Hum and Ginger Man are each less than a five minute walk from here.

Obviously a tourist trap being located at tHe bottom of the Empire State Building but the lunchtime atmosphere in the downstairs bar area is reasonably chilled. Service can be a bit slow when the place is busy. Usual selection of Heatland Beers, the Indiana Pale Ale is enjoyable.

Visited in February 2009.

First day in Manhattan since the mid 90s. I wanted to the do the touristy thing and go up to the top of the Empire State Building for the view but the $20 price tag and the fact that it was over cast convinced me to scroll past. Instead we settled for a flight in the brewery located in the lobby and basement of the building. Itís fairly large for a pub/restaurant and it only takes up a corner of the building. Over all the house beers were fairly forgettable but the porter was really good for the style (not a fan myself) and the bock was quite good too, though that may have been due to age. The bartender was very friendly and the atmosphere was nice but I can think of a half a dozen places within walking distance that have better beer. Definitely worth a stop once especially if youíve never been in the Empire State Building.

18th Jan 2013: I liked this place: and yes I was obviously a tourist. I had 10 hours in New York, so my wife and I decided to walk along Broadway through Times Square, see Macyís, turn onto 34th and look up at the ESB before taking 5th Ave up to Central Park (via Central Station and other touristy bits). When we walked away from the ESB along 5th Ave and turned for the view and photo shoot: my wife noticed the brewery. It was almost 12:00 so we walked back and went in. We sat on the ground level with very few others, watching street life: downstairs was empty, but very impressive, clean, tidy and different (to me anyway). Ground level is fine too and the beers I tried were OK: the Red Rooster Ale being the best for my taste buds. We didnít eat. Staff were friendly and happy to talk about beer or whatever. All in all a pleasant spot to while away an hour to rest your feet before tramping around the city again.

Have popped in here once or twice when doing touristy things. Large place more akin to a diner upstairs, downstairs has more of a bar feel. Standard Heartland beers and seasonals (from Greenpoint). Adequate brews but nothing special. Service has always been fine. Just a place to tick a few beers or pop in for half an hour - largely a tourist crowd as youíd imagine from the location. Useful but not essential!

Obviously a great location. Had a few samples at the bar and had lunch downstairs. Nothing outstanding, but decent food and the beers were OK. Am glad I stopped by once.

Gotta love its location, right in the center of NY. You can watch people and tourist walking on street while sipping on beer. Place was clean and fairly friendly. Went there early during day so place was not too busy. Prices reasonable considering location.
