The service at this place is incredible. Upon entering, the bartender immediately pours a water, sets it down, and then gives you time to pick out a beer. Speaking of beer, the selection is great. Pricing is moderate, nothing outstanding. Food is decent but nothing to write home about. Very chill place, and also, the music is great.

Iím a frequenter. Great atmosphere with dim lights (but not so dark you canít see) fitting the viking motif, and music that is good but is not blasting, so you can still have a conversation. It never gets extremely crowded unless itís late on a Friday or Saturday night, and even then, weíve always wound up getting a table or seat at the bar. Servers have always been quick and friendly, but in a short kind of way where they smile and walk away after serving you, even if there is nobody else to wait on. Not very conversational, which is probably good. Iíve had food here only a couple times, but the wings are good and meaty (and cheap during late-night hours). As for the selection, some of the earlier ratings should really be updated (if possible) b/c they have long since done away with the duplicate taps. They now have 24 separate beers on tap at all times, and you can usually find a bunch of beers you have never tried. In short: a fun, clean bar with quick, friendly service and B+ selection. Nice neighborhood joint that I would recommend checking out next time youíre in town.

Valhalla is a great place to hang out. I can understand that itís a bit crowded at peak times, but Iíve had some really nice late nights here. Whenever I visit NY, somehow Valhalla always happens. Last time we tried to go to a show a few blocks away, but the line was really long so a "**** it, letís go to Valhalla", was in order. We had yet another great night. Theyíre not quite as obsessed with or passionate about beer as some of the other more highly rated beer bars on this site, but both beer novices and vets can have a quality time here.

Very nice spot. Stopped in on a busy early spring night, weather was getting warm and this place was beyond swamped. The crowd seemed to be later 20ís into later 30ís. Beer selection was great! A chalkboard with "Here" and "There".... Lots of locals, and some amazing beers on tap. Service was fast, even given the busy crowd. The prices were normal for Manhattan. Great beer, good crowd, nice bar, stop in!

Very good selection. Menu was appetizer only but what we had was very tasty. Service was good but they werenít busy. My favorite part was that all beers were served in perfectly appropriate glassware.

I like this place a lot! A little on the expensive side, but they have a good variety and selection of beers on tap, and a wide range of other beers, both standard and obscure, in bottles. No food here, but close to some amazing neighborhood restaurants (i.e. Island Burger...)

Nice little bar in Hell's Kitchen area. Small and very loud, but a good tap selection. Food is limited, like an appetizer menu, but was tasty. Worthy stop for beer but not a dinner stop.

Good option and not too far from Central Park. I came by during happy hour but honestly canít remember if it worked out much cheaper than regular times. Semi-interesting tap selection and a few new beers for me but also filled with beers youíll catch elsewhere around the city. There were plates of snacks available such as wings, hot dogs and sliders. Service was fine and during a peak rush too. Iíd definitely suggest coming by and convenient after a walk through the park.

Drafts with some friends. Nice atmosphere, nice draft list (hill farmstead) and an okay bottle list. Usually some local (ny state) brewery offerings. Loud on the week nights. Long tables good for groups. Table service.
