Good rotating tap selection in a large dark bar. Loads of brewerania throughout the place. The owner is a beer geek and likes to talk shop. Food is good (I particularly enjoyed the chili). I usually kill time here while Iím waiting for my movie to start at the adjacent theatre.

Been here (Manhattan location...) once and had a great experience. Waterfront has a strong craft beer selection and great food. They also have popcorn, and I had a lot of it during my visit. As for the beer, I had some Ommegang and Blue Point. Value is very good. The bar is pleasant enough with a certain neighborhood vibe. Would like to visit again.

Have visited this venue a few times over the years, usually after dinner in Blue Smoke as itís about 3 or 4 blocks away.
Medium sized bar, about as close to an English pub as you find in the US (ie fairly natural and not trying to plaster the walls and shelves in tat).
A decent if unspectacular range of beers and not bad prices for Mahhatten (as slightly off the beaten track and leaning towards Brooklyn!).
Service is fine, have been here when very busy and also when dead (never on a weekend night).
They sometimes get funny about you sitting at a table if you donít want to eat but my English charm usually persuades them to let me sit !
Not a venue to make a big effort for but worth popping by if it suits your general plans.

Pleasantly relaxed pub that is just far enough from the busiest part of Manhattan to offer an ambiance similar to a ďlocal small town pubĒ, a rarity in Manhattan. Beer selection, while not comparable to the classic NYC places (Blind Tiger and others) is still quite decent. There was 19 taps when I was there with the likes of Captain Lawrence, Ithaca, Sly Fox, Stoutdts, Nogne, etc. Prices were also cheaper than what Iím used to pay in Manhattan with most pints in the $6.50 range, a price that the Montrealer that I am finds acceptable. Bottle menu is also decent with the prices often comparable to buying the bottle in a store. They even had bottles of Black Ops with $2 or $3 more than buying one in a store (if youíre lucky enough to find one). Food menu was decent, this is a place you can stop for a full meal. Music was classic rock at moderate volume. Customers appeared to me like regulars of the place. Overall, worth a stop.

I prefer the one in Brooklyn to the Manhattan location (itís bigger, and in a íhood with a lot more going on) - the food at both locations is pretty good, but again, the Brooklyn folks win out - selection at both loactions is decent, but nothing to go out of your way for.

In a city as big as New York itís always nice to find a place that feels like itís a neighborhood bar where everyone knows everyone elseís name. This is that place. Old time pub feel to it, and while there I witnessed a good number of people being greeted by name by others eating or working there when they entered. Thatís the kind of place I like to find, especially when they have good beer selections and good food. Sat at the bar next to two gentlemen working their way through a huge wurst platter and the smoked garlic mashed potatoes on their plates looked good enough that though I wasnít super hungry, I had to order a side of just the potatoes. They were excellent. There are a couple of house beers here brewed I believe by High Point in NJ, and they have a really good selection of other stuff. It may not be a beer bar at the caliber of some other NYC places (Blind Tiger, Rattle, Ginger Man) where the emphasis is beer first, but if youíre in the neighborhood this is certainly worth a stop.

10/07 Rerate: Run-down and the selection is only adequate. Not worth a look unless youíre nearby. It used to be quite good in 2005.
brbrOld review: Good selection of Dogfish, Brooklyn, Victory and other quality ales on tap. Pleasant, but not dazzling atmosphere. Decent location next to movie theatre around 30th St. makes for good after-movie quaffing. When in the neighborhood, itís worth dropping in, but given a choice, Iíd hit Blind Tiger, Copperfieldís, dba or others first.

Cool place for both food and beer. Stone, Brooklyn and DFH as well as full bar. The food is supposed to be good but I havenít tried it. There is a second location in Brooklyn which I havenít been to yet.

Nice looking bar with some old time decor and free popcorn! The service isnít that bad. Itís just tough on a Thursday night when itís busy, youíre trying to enjoy a couple of pints, and every table in the joint is catered to the people ordering food; giving it more of a restaurant feel rather than a bar. (Note to proprietor: Reserve just the back area for food mandatory food ordering, not the tables next the the bar). Decent selection of mainly local micro brews, along with the typical midtown "macro" of Stella and Hoegaarden. I found a Sly Fox Pale Ale project offering I never had before, and they also had up the Fastenbier from, you know who, which was a great plus.

I went here a few time for their special happy hour to get some discounts on some Belgains that are usually pricey. Bartender was very nice and gave samples if I needed and we had a bunch to drink and was a good time. Nice and open and the doors open wide which is great for the summer.
