I’m not a fan of big cities, but I went here with my ex wife when we were married. Food was good. Beers are decent. Service was good even that the place was packed. Maybe again, if I was in the city, but living in Vermont now, I shrug my shoulders and say, it was a good time when I was there, is that fair enough.
Visited for a meal with the family during a stay in New York. My food was accompanied by a Seasonal Voyage platter of 7 x 5oz samplings plus an Old Red Nose Christmas beer to finish. All beers were decent without being stand-out. Food was very good. Service was excellent (though I think we struck lucky with the waiter we had). Place was busy without being packed, very good vibe to it. Enjoyable visit overall.
Times square crowd, times square prices. Same beer as all the other locations. Occasionally a lunch spot for me, not much else. Mediocre, but depends on what you are comparing it to, I mean within a couple blocks the options are very limited.
Stopped by for the first time in awhile the other day. Not much has changed over the years. It still looks like a big pub. The old brew system has been left for show, as I believe everything is brewed off premises. The beers are decent enough. Had the pumpkin on this trip. Lunch was good. Lots of typical fare for a place such as this. Service was good. The prices are in line for Manhattan.
One of the newer additions to the Heartland Brewery chain, this place sports a more intimate sort of vibe than some of the other locations. You walk into to a dark wood and brass covered front pub area. There are some tables scattered about the opening area and a larger dining area further back. Food is standard chain fare and the beer is the usual line up of stuff.
Brewpub right off of Times Square. Large scale pub atmosphere. I had a beer at the bar. Scoped out the ratings first - the only beer that had decent ratings was the oatmeal stout, so I tried one of those; pretty decent. Didn’t eat, so can’t comment on the food. Service was OK. $7 for a pint - a bit on the pricy side, but I suppose that’s a high rent district. If you come here, do yourself a favor and walk down the block to BXL Belgian Cafe as well - good stuff.

Visited May, 2012.
I figured since the last time I was in NYC I stopped at the location in the Empire State Building that this time I’d check out a different location, even if they have the same beer. This one is set up more like a restaurant and less like a lounge. I got a booth near the back and had some dinner that was pretty good. I enjoyed the soup quite a bit and the steak wasn’t bad. The pint of the “Indian Pale Ale” was alright as was the seasonal that was on at the time. Nothing special really. While in the bathroom I saw a sign advertising a citra hopped gluten free pale ale. I really wanted to try it to see if even citra could save a gluten free beer but alas, they were out and the bartender had no idea when (or if) they would make it again. Too bad. Over all a nice place but like the other location, there is better beer nearby. Also, not sure if both places are rateable but next door (literally) is a bar with the same name that seems to operate independently of the restaurant. When I asked about buying a taster glass (it’s a miniature mug) they sent me next door where they happily sold me one… for $5.
Nice selection of house beers, including a sampler option. No problem finding a table on a Saturday afternoon. Service was very good - my server rewarded my inability to make a decision by offering me an extra beer. Standard pub/ restaurant food was prepared well and delivered timely.
Touristy place off Times Square.
Standard Heartland (Greenpoint) range.
Service was fine despite the place being pretty packed.
Not a venue to seek out but if you want to tick off their range you could build in a visit here.
