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.

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.

Good beer on tap, not ridiculously overpriced, and not packed with people I hate (usually). A good place to have a beer or several. Only problem is the size of the menís room. Oh, and when you show up at 9PM or thereabouts on a Wednesday or Thursday night, it might be hard to find a place to sit.

Drafts with some friends. Nice atmosphere, nice draft list (hill farmstead) and an okay bottle list.

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...)

Visited in May 2012 after walking through Central Park.
This place was on my radar mostly because of the name. Very Scandinavian, very metal. I was half expecting them to be blasting Bathory non stop but they had on some classic rock as well as some 90s stuff. Below the chalk board and above the liquor bottles is a cow skull and on the late night happy menu they call it "angry hour". Pretty good deal really as all "American craft beers" are $5 and they had some cheap snacks available. If I was there that late I would have ordered $.50 wings. They also have a large (and topless) viking woman with the horned helmet holding an ax and a sword above the hallway leading to the kitchen and bathrooms. But then they have Christmas lights strung all around the room. The tables are wooden picnic tables. I guess aside from the random multicolored lights everywhere they did a decent job making this look like an old pub. The only thing missing was people throwing their glasses (or pewter mugs) on the ground when they finished.
The tap list was decent. Bear Republic, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Left Hand, Smuttynose, Stone, Troegs, Victory, and Weyerbacher all offered. In the end I went with a Greenflash Imperial IPA and a soft pretzel. I dont honestly remember if they even send servers to the tables but I ordered everything at the bar. There are better tap lists in the city for sure but for the novelty of saying that Iím in Valhalla I might stop back in some day.

18 Jan 2013: directed here by the staff in íAlfiesí which is a few yards away on the corner of 53rd and 9th. I prefered Aflies to be honest!
Anyway this place was fine, helpful serving staff and a good selection of taps: sadly none from any state I hadnít already had a beer from. The two beers I did have were both in excellent order as were the íSalsa and Chipsí.
All in all a pleasant little bar with a friendly vibe to it: sadly we had to leave early though, our ship was only in town for the day and I needed to buy some bottles for the sea days ahead.

Been here a few times when I used to live close by. This place has a nice rustic Scandinavian feel to it. Respectable number of taps with decent offerings.. I got some Southern Tier Harvest here. Decent bottle list too. Staff has been prompt and friendly on both occasions. This place needs more love.

Nicely designed place, comfortable and clean. A good selection of taps (around 20) and bottles, with a number of unusual items. Not too crowded or noisy when I went, which was fine with me. Prices are pretty high, but not unusually so for New York City. A lively and attractive atmosphere prevails on weekend nights.
