Turned in on a whim on a midday beg. Sep 2012 and had the house burger and 7x5oz tasting flight of house brews. All beers were uniformally bland, but drinkable, with a watery texture to all of them, even the darker ones - seemingly hastily brewed for sheer variertyís sake. Their draught "Saison" was a mere verbal tribute to the style and could have been an unfinished US lager. Service was corporate-friendly and typically indifferent to the beers served, burger & salad were ok but sparingly garnished and a tad overpriced even for NYC.
Very skippable, apart maybe for die-hard tickers. Now only to remember those interchangeable 7x5oz samples...

Decent brewpub stop. Near Radio City. Beer ranged from bland (yet not flawed) to pretty decent. Friendly service and decent prices. Didnít try the food. Tasting flight available. Not a bad stop for the ticks.

Visited Aug. 13+14th 2011.
Really nice brewpub with a fine selection of their own beers, wine and spirits. Exciting menucard. The staff was friendly. Nice premises with posibility for outdoor sitting.

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Typical industrial looking brewpub with some decent beers and average pricey food. Service at the tables was lousy. Of the beer itself, there were 8 on tap and only the IPA was worth having more than a sample of and even that was lackluster. Not really worth seeking out. Hit one of the many beer bars instead.

Third Heartland place in a day. Am I a glutton for punishment or what? Actually, none of them are terrible, theyíre just really not aimed at the beer crowd. This one offered 9 (or 10 possibly, forget if they had the empire premium on) different taps, meaning the six regulars, and three seasonals. In this case, another different one than the first two places Iíd been (Chophouse, HB Burgers) that day. Made it here around two thirty in the afternoon on a Thursday. Small amount of people, especially at the bar area. My server here was quite nice, and at some point (Iím guessing) the manager came over and talked beer for a while as well. After eating at two of the last three places Iíd been in the last three hours, I skipped food here and just had one (expensive at $5) half pint. Prices are pretty much the same at all of the Heartland places. $13 gets you a sampler of their six mediocre standards, tack on $2 more and you can have the seasonals as well. Like all of the Heartland places Iíve been to (four out of the seven in the city now), nothing fantastic, but I guess if you have to go somewhere with a bunch of non-beer people, this could do in a pinch.

Right around the corner from the office, what more do you want?! The food was average, service was fast, friendly and knowledeable. The beers were average, but nicely displayed and offerend in flights. The place has a mcro feel, almost like a TGIF or Chiliís... overall, not bad.

51st St. NYC Baby! Had the afternoon to do some tastings and tried them all. I think I liked 85% of there offerings.
Right after lunch and it got quiet at the bar so the service was great! Go and enjoy.

Like a sports bar with its own beer selection, this place was desperately tring to convince people that it is a brew pub through signs on the windows, which gave me a bad feeling. Went in on Jan 1 evening, at dinner time, which did not bode well. Lots of families with kiddies. Poor bartender was run off his feet. Got a flight of six house beers plus one seasonal. they have two options for flights: either you get the normal flight with the six main beers, or the "seasonal" which allows you to have the normal flight plus one of the two seasonals. How stupid. Why can I not have both seasonals, huh? Anyway, the beer was mediocre at best. The stout was good, but the pale ale was sad, the red was crappy, the lager was middle of the road, my gf and I disagreed on the merits of the seasonal (red nose or something like that) which I liked for the Christmas spice but she did not) we also disagreed on the wheat beer: I thought it was okay, but she was not a fan. But then again, this is N

For a midtown brewery, Heartland has a decent selection and, hey, at least they brew it themselves. Some of the wheat and summer offerings tend to run towards the more accessible side of the spectrum.
The spaces are somewhat sterile, but clean and well-lit. It’s basically what you’d expect if Ruby Tuesday’s did a brew pub.The locations of the franchise belie any hint of edginess at Heartland (Union Square, Times Square, Seaport, etc.). Every beer is drinkable and above average, if a bit safe.
