Our hotel was just round the corner so fancied trying this NYC venue. As a British person, I can say that this is a great example of a pub and we really enjoyed it. It was a little crammed and the visitors didn't really have consideration for those that were eating as they kept bumping into our table and chairs... More

Went for lunch this week while on trip to NY. What a cool place, service was so friendly, lamb burger was best I have ever had, an old school pub in West village. Very happy I found it and tried it.

Brilliant place. We had read about the Ear Inn before our trip - as luck would have it our hotel was across the road. Went in just for a drink, ended up spending the whole evening there with 5 drinks and food! Food quality was superb home-style tasty fare, and the staff were fantastic. Eric and Barry made us so...

The one thing I don't like on my travels is going to 'themed' bars, you know, the typical 'Irish bar' that can be a bit plasticy.. Now this bar is a real bar, the like of which New York and Dublin are renowned for.. and I love it. Its a cracking place, with a New York heritage history, steered by... More

My son lives nearby so I went to perhaps the oldest beer joint in NY. This is the quintessential welcome everyone "NY Cheers kinda place." The present owner (since his Dad bought in in 1977) graciously introduced himself. He is there every night. Nice guy. However, the bartender was confrontational. I was very puzzled why. He screamed at me for... More

We had a great dinner at the Ear. The food was tasty. I had a cheeseburger which was very good. My husband had a chicken Caesar salad which he enjoyed. Since the place is small, we were very close to adjacent tables. We sat next to a couple from Germany and also two local guys. Delightful interactions with super fun... More

Definitely an Institution.... Great pint of Guinness or few to start or end your night here. Nice, relax and vibrant atmosphere... Lovely waitresses and very attentive. Live music on some night. They also serve food. Typical pub food but not too bad.... So focus on the drinks :)

We were in the area and I realized we were just minutes away from a very cool neighborhood and historic drinking and eating establishment. And the Ear Inn did not disappoint. As we were off to a dinner, we only had drinks and a spectacular appetizer of fresh homemade mozzarella and beefy tomatoes. We sat at the bar. Barbara is... More
