Cozy wooden interior. Friendly, knowledgeable waitress, great beer selection. Limited food menu, but my chicken/chorizo tacos (a special for the day) were excellent. I’ll go again next time I’m in NYC.
First time I've tried to visit this bar it was so crowded the bouncer wouldn't let us in. So in my second attempt I've managed to visit this famous NYC bar. Medium sized place, incredibly crowded and loud. Someone might say vibrant and lively, but didn't struck me as a place where I would like to stay for long. Maybe I was just a bit tired at the moment. Somehow I got a beer at the bar and stood in the middle of room, since there was no chair or table. Selection was good, but they don't seem to update their online beer list regularly so I've expected a bit more. Nothing too interesting except Captain Lawrence Cuvee de Castleton which was very nice. A good bar for sure, but I don't see it as one of the top NYC places.
On business in NYC. Visited Monday 20th November 17. Early evening and this place was buzzing, I got a table which made all the difference as I was knackered. The list was fantastic, I ordered the Hill Farmstead beers which were excellent, and a Pizza Boy imperial stout, all beers rated 100 on RB. The food was great, roast beef sandwich. A nice real fire going, young crowd, I was certainly in the upper age group, fantastic music also, life was good, Hill Farmstead DIPA, good music and food. This place was the best in my opinion of the places I went to in New York.
Small and crowded. Difficult to see whats on and difficult to get served. Was OK for kids in afternoon, beer range was decent. Samplers like all of NY pricy. but allround ok

Easily one of the best beer bars in Manhattan. Small, but cute and classic. 28 taps with an interesting mix of local stuff and guests. Visited during the impressive Other Half full tap take over and it was quite busy since afternoon. 7$/8oz for most of the pours. No food tasted.
Came there around noon and it was rather quiet and peaceful. Great tap list. Didn´t look at the bottle list, it was no need for that. Service good and prices quite fair (there are plenty of more expensive beer bars in NYC).
Visited on September 23, 2016, in the evening. The smallest of the four beer bars we have been on this New York City trip, but quite cosy in its typical pub atmosphere. Quite a good tap list, some are mostly pale ales. Plus there was two cask. Not a bad food menu, I had a roasted chicken sandwich, really good. Although there were no table service (past 3 PM), the service was fast and friendly. A nice unpretentious pub!
