Visited DCís house of beers for the first time on a visit to NYC in early March 11. Arrived in the bar for a beery Friday lunch with 3 friends just before 12 noon and the place was empty. By 12.45 / 1pm it was crowded and folks were struggling to get a table, largely a local office crowd, 95%+ male!!! Beer selection was decent, approx 30 on tap and I enjoyed offerings from 21st ammendment, Stones and Flying Dog. Table service was a little slow as it got busier and we did go thirsty for more than a few minutes between our 2nd and 3rd drink. Food wise, the burgers looked great (although unfortunately I didnít have one). I opted for the Nachos and felt short changed. I can only describe the portion size as íUKí and it was most definately the smallest/meanest portion Iíve been served on the left hand side of the pond! In summary, I would come here again, but only if I was close by. I donít think it was worth the effort to seek this bar out and go out of our way, which we did on this occasion.

Decent bar. Has a good draft line-up that highlights American craft beer. They also do some good brewery events; I visited on Victory night, which featured nine VBC taps. Prices are a bit above NYC standards for some beers, which would be OK since the beers are quite good; however, this bar is WAY off the beaten path and I canít say the prices are justified. (Caveat: There do seem to be some good happy hour deals.) I didnít have any food. The bartender was very kind and attentive, and I noticed she really knew how to pour a good pint (or goblet), leaving a perfect-sized head and not wasting any liquid. I would recommed this bar only if you are in the area for some reason. Not really a destination for someone who lives away from the Upper East Side.

A nice neighbour and family friendly bar in a relatively safe area, clean and both modern and traditional appointments. Being in NYC, this place is abundantly covered in the reviews, its the three-review bar where we make the most useful impact. Reasonably good service, and goodwill by charging my happy hour prices a few minutes past the hour. The bartender knew the beers and had tried them.The selection is good, however less exotic than their cousin bar down the island, Hop Devil Grill. Seems to depend on the week, and the weekend. Selection appears Fresh, good pours, a cask.

Very nice, chill place to hang out a kill a few pints. Everything that I had here was in great condition and very tasty. Bar staff were friendly and efficient. I didnít eat so I canít comment on that, but itís a fine drinking establishment.

Small-medium size noisy pub that probably sit 100 people at most. Standard greasy pub food. Heteroclite decoration, they could turn it into a Mexican restaurant or something else without changing a thing. Crowd is early 30s people, a bit on the left-side, some openly gay. Good selection with about 30 taps. The week-end I visited this pub I did an extensive NYC and Brooklyn pub-crawl and found a few interesting items at this pub that I didnít find anywhere else in NYC/Brooklyn during that week-end, namely Cigar City Maduro Oatmeal Brown Ale and Keegan Ales Bourbon Barrel Joe Mama. To me this is almost a new must-hit when I visit NYC.

I go to this place whenever Iím up at the MET or some of the other museums in the area, otherwise itís pretty out of the way, and, relatively speaking, pretty far from the nearest subway - the selection is decent, especially if you want regional micros - the bartenders, however, donít tend to know very much about beer, but they are quite friendly and are prone to give you a beer on the house if you run your tab high enough - the croud is mostly uptight uptowners there to talk business and suck down hoegaardens, but the seating is good and the place is well-lit and clean - you take the bad with the good - worth a visit if in the area, but donít bust your hump to get there.

Nice local bar. Solid selection of bottles and taps. Nothing glamorous or out of control -- just a really good local bar with a relaxed atmosphere. A must if youíre on the UES.

Nice place to throw darts and drink really good craft beer from the tap or on cask. Havenít eaten there. Sat at the bar a few times. Service was good. Bar staff was reasonably knowledgeable. Dark, and sort of dank . My kind of place.

In short, a bland bar with beer almost as good as dba in a farflung íhood nowhere near you.brbr Thirty taps and a quality selection of bottles adds to a spirited, lively scene with lots of beer lovers in attendance. Nice owners only adds to Copperfieldís appeal. An authentic hand pump was a nice touch (but on my 10/07 visit it was empty!). Rogue, Lake Placid and Wagner Valley were well represented. Gives Blind Tiger a run for its money as DCís bathroom is actually clean, however, DC lacks atmosphere. While the barkeep was friendly, our food order was botched up (they corrected it at their expense - thx for the free onion rings), and the space itself lacks something. Other beer bars are leaving DC in the dust (Spuyten has upscale food and atmosphere aplenty, Diamond has horseshoes, Wells has a beer-drinking robot, McSorleyís has sawdust floors, Barcade has arcade games, so surely DC can come up with something! Even Stanton Public has its TV dinner menu. brbr In short, DC has terrific beer but it needs a handpup thatís actually tapped with a firkin and it needs exotic beers like dba has and it really needs atmosphere - itís a bit bland. Oh, and DC needs to take the food up a notch. Start serving odd platters like Spuyten Duyvil and Diamond do.
