Have popped by here a few times over the years most recently on 30/05/12.
Usual 7 or 8 Heartland (Greenpoint) offerings both regular and seasonal.
Old early 19th century pub that reminds me of a back street English boozer from the outside. Have always visited at lunchtime and itís never been that busy. Service ok, they are clearly geared up as an eating joint and donít come to check whether you need another beer or not quite as much as Iíd like. I most definately would not go out of the way to visit but it fits in well with the tourist trail from coming off the Statten ferry to walking the Brooklyn bridge.

Attended a wedding around the corner in the seaport and stopped in before the reception began. Nice location with a great looking interior and some tables outside. Offered standards and four seasonal beers.

Iíve been going here for years, and it never occurred to me to rate it. The ambiance is one of the nicest aspects, a real old fashioned looking pub. The service is excellent, but of course itís better if you are a regular. The staff is generally knowledgable about the beers they serve. I tend to like Heartlandís brews, although they are seldom among the very best, the beers they serve are eclectic, and greatly varied. The selection could be improved here; they need to get more beers on tap than 2 or 3 seasonals and 6 regulars. The food here also lags behind other Heartland establishments, but is decent food overall and reasonably priced. The value is decent for this type of establishment in downtown Manhattan. Overall a decent place to top in you are visting the downtown area.

I visted this location with my family on a day trip into the city. We stopped by for lunch. We were served quickly and courteously, and I enjoyed the Oatmeal Stout very much. The food, while tasty, was meager. I had the chili, which had a few beans, two or three pieces of meat, a couple of chopped tomato pieces and three taco chips. Seemed more like a soup than chili. I looked around and the burgers seemed more substantial, so if I go back, I think thatís while Iíll be ordering. Worth stopping by if youíre in the area, but not worth a special trip.

The beer wasnít terrible, but it wasnít worth a return visit. We spent an evening on the patio, which while nice for the fresh air, is basically underneath the FDR. Nothing so charming as a patio under a highway in a historic district. The food was passable pub fare, not great, not terrible. It definitely had that chain-pub feel even though i have not been to the other NYC heartlands.

I love goin to South St. and there is not too much as far as beer goes right in the square. No problem throwing a few back at this more cozy location. Slightlymore pub like than the other locations but still is a heartland and noticably a chain. Not bad overall.

I tend to agree with the previous raters. Food is par, service is subpar, beer is on the level of other brewpubs. This bar would work much better if the service was better and there was some better lighting. On the plus side the sampler is cheap.

Oh, hey, someone finally enter this location on the site - I went to this one after heading down to the seaport to see the Bodies exhibit - this place is downright microscopic - we went in to try to get a table, and the help just left us to wander around the restaurant ourselves for a while, until one server finally noticed we were walking around the place and asked us in an annoyed tone if we needed a seat - our waiter took about 10 minutes to get to us - the beers arrived about another 10 mintes after we ordered them - and it just went on and on from there - just downright terrible.

Food and service average for most places, particularly below average for NYC! I would not bother to go to this place, unless you like subpar food, average beer, and touristy places. If youíre in NY donít waste your time or money. Plus will they please tell the guy with the electric violin TO GET LOST!!!!
