We walked in around 9 after a long day. The warm greetings, smiles and laughs erased everything. Great food and service (and drinks).

Stopped here on a whim, and had the best salmon skewer ever! Along with a wonderful glass of Cab Sav and a great Glenmorangie on the rocks. Great place to stop and have a sip and a bite.

We stopped by for brunch while we were out bicycle riding. I must say that we were very impressed. Our dishes were great, and the price fixe included two drinks. Very reasonable, service was excellent, my wife and I enjoyed it very much.

We never had New Zealand style so we ventured in. The food was quite good and the menu was interesting. The Nelson Dip (lamb) was excellent as was the Nelson Blue Lager. We went for lunch on a Saturday and it was not real busy.

Every time I come here, I always have an amazing time. The draft beer is always great, and the food is amazing. The bar was totally destroyed during Hurricane Sandy, however it has been totally rebuilt since then and has updated amenities. If you are...More

Thursday really is the new Friday. This South Street Seaport bar was full of well dressed young people after work (even at 8 pm) so it was loud. But the food is good - interesting salads and a long list of sandwiches. The draft beer...More
