Went to the Times Square location. Seemed to be an excellent casual dining restaurant, but the beers were subpar to say the least - one tasted like cornflakes, another like orange peels and the rest not only indistinct but virtually nothing at all. Service was nice, fast and reasonably priced, especially for the location - stop in for a snack between destinations, but the beer is mediocre and that’s being kind.

Visited over the ’08 holiday season. Was referred by a non-beer geek pal... The bar area was small, maybe 10-12 seats. We sat in the restaurant, which served steak/burger fare. Food was average, but that’s not what this rating is about. The beer was hit or miss. The oatmeal stout was excellent, along with their seasonal red and IPA. The rest were off a bit, including an orangish wheat beer. Prices were reasonable, considering the area. Worth a stop if you’re trudging through Times Square and need a beer break.

These Heartland places are pretty much the same. Decent brewpub, ok selection, but not the best place in the world...

(Visited 04/2006): Walked here from the Renaissance Times Square. Located on 43rd street, and there is a huge neon arrow sign that makes finding it relatively easy. No clue what the parking options are.
The interior is interesting. They have a definite middle america look inside, very pastoral with paintings on the walls depicting farming etc. Lots of brick and dark red hues, and a good array of historic breweriana everywhere. The bar is on the left when you enter and there is a list of beers currently available.
I was pleasantly surprised at the selection of beer. They had 8 different offerings, 3 of them seasonal. They have 2 different samplers, one with 5oz samples of the 5 standards ($9.95) and one including all 8 ($12.50). Aside from the usual brewpub offerings, they do experiment a little with beers like the Belgian Black Cherry Stout. All of the beers were well-made, and the styles that would be throwaways in some brewpubs were good too.
Service on a Sunday afternoon was good, and the place was surprisingly dead considering how busy the area was.
The food was very tasty. I had a BBQ burger and my wife got the Rueben. Good french fries also.
Overall this is the ideal setup for a brewpub for travellers. It is in walking distance from hotels, has a good array of beers and good food. Pricey but not really for NYC standards. Worth visiting!

Beautiful pub of good dimensions with numerous tables to dispositions of who wants eat something but little space at the counter. A lot crowded and decidedly noisy this local offers exclusively the good beers of own production. Optimally located in the vicinities of Times Square, also remaining lightly hidden it’s however goal of many thirsty.

Just like all the other Heartland locations in NYC. A good time. The beer runs a bit hoppy.

A nice, quiet place off Times Square. They’re happy to provide a sampler with a small amount of each beer for a reasonable price, although the staff don’t seem particularly interested in what they’re serving. Had eight Heartland brews on tap, which is probably everything that was available when I was in NY.
