  • Carved out of the back of another bar, this craft beer spot is an oasis in the vast wasteland of generic Midtown after-work bars. Check out the patio upstairs.
  • The bartenders are cute - and they like to chat. So treat them well. It's not uncommon to get a couple drinks knocked off your bill! Consider it a challenge.
  • Ask for an outside table-there is a hidden patio upstairs in the back with table service. Always ask for the special list, order the nachos, and enjoy a beer from a constantly changing rotation.
  • Great craft beer on the UES. Great draft/bottle list and a outdoor area for the summer time! Food selection is also a winner!
  • By far the best beer selection in the neighborhood, outside patio is wonderful in the spring ( you can stay out their as late as you want now). The blue burger is epic, make sure you get Cajun fries.
  • Go Friday night and ask for Mike. He's the best
  • Love Monday night music with George Stass and Nick the bartender.
  • Several tips say they have an excellent selection of beers. However, they seemed to be out of everything. Very frustrating.
  • If you're female, use the handicap bathroom. The seat in the other bathroom is nearly useless.
  • Solid happy hour deal. $5 beers. Not so loud and easy to talk with people.
  • The lunch special here is very apealing. Burger with fries or chapperds pie or steak with a half pint of selected beer for 11,00 dollars, cant beat that in this area. And the brioche buns yummmy!
  • pretty decent fair, much enjoy the Brussels sprouts, decent sandwich/burger scenario and specials usually, large beer selection, weirdly tight security, usually decent broad scenario
  • Go here during natural disasters
  • Try the Doc's Pear Cider- delish!!
  • There's an outdoor roof terrace!
  • Great food! Chips for nachos were homemade, great craft beers, super friendly waitress, and a roof deck. Best place I've been to in midtown! GO HERE!
  • Good place for happy hour. If you have a casual date, it works because you can talk and hear eachother too. There's a small outside patio but gets crowded.
  • Kiss kyle for a free pickle
  • Awesome little bar. Great beer selection
  • If you prefer your meat cooked well-done, specify that when ordering the sliders. They were very pink. I absolutely adore the pear cider, and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about their beers.
