Turned in on a whim on a midday beg. Sep 2012 and had the house burger and 7x5oz tasting flight of house brews. All beers were uniformally bland, but drinkable, with a watery texture to all of them, even the darker ones - seemingly hastily brewed for sheer varierty’s sake. Their draught "Saison" was a mere verbal tribute to the style and could have been an unfinished US lager. Service was corporate-friendly and typically indifferent to the beers served, burger & salad were ok but sparingly garnished and a tad overpriced even for NYC.
Very skippable, apart maybe for die-hard tickers. Now only to remember those interchangeable 7x5oz samples...
Decent brewpub stop. Near Radio City. Beer ranged from bland (yet not flawed) to pretty decent. Friendly service and decent prices. Didn’t try the food. Tasting flight available. Not a bad stop for the ticks.
Pretty generic looking brewpub but its across from my work so i hit it up sometimes for lunch. kinda pricey but its food is pretty decent and their beers aren’t terrible. they come out with new stuff semi- regularly so enjoyable for midtown

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Typical industrial looking brewpub with some decent beers and average pricey food. Service at the tables was lousy. Of the beer itself, there were 8 on tap and only the IPA was worth having more than a sample of and even that was lackluster. Not really worth seeking out. Hit one of the many beer bars instead.
Third Heartland place in a day. Am I a glutton for punishment or what? Actually, none of them are terrible, they’re just really not aimed at the beer crowd. This one offered 9 (or 10 possibly, forget if they had the empire premium on) different taps, meaning the six regulars, and three seasonals. In this case, another different one than the first two places I’d been (Chophouse, HB Burgers) that day. Made it here around two thirty in the afternoon on a Thursday. Small amount of people, especially at the bar area. My server here was quite nice, and at some point (I’m guessing) the manager came over and talked beer for a while as well. After eating at two of the last three places I’d been in the last three hours, I skipped food here and just had one (expensive at $5) half pint. Prices are pretty much the same at all of the Heartland places. $13 gets you a sampler of their six mediocre standards, tack on $2 more and you can have the seasonals as well. Like all of the Heartland places I’ve been to (four out of the seven in the city now), nothing fantastic, but I guess if you have to go somewhere with a bunch of non-beer people, this could do in a pinch.
Right around the corner from the office, what more do you want?! The food was average, service was fast, friendly and knowledeable. The beers were average, but nicely displayed and offerend in flights. The place has a mcro feel, almost like a TGIF or Chili’s... overall, not bad.
51st St. NYC Baby! Had the afternoon to do some tastings and tried them all. I think I liked 85% of there offerings.
Right after lunch and it got quiet at the bar so the service was great! Go and enjoy.
