This bar used to be awesome! It had a pool table, ski ball, and the best free burger with a drink, free wings with a pitcher deal. They have now changed this deal to "free before 5pm." Who goes to a bar before 5pm? That's...More

Looking for a good pub burger on the upper east side but this wasn't it... this wasn't it. Beers on tap were good but the food wasn't. Pull pork was tough and fries were floppy. Burger was just okay. I'll keep looking.

Eclectic beer selection, lots on tap. Good bar food. Family friendly, but better with adults (like every good bar).

Lots to like here for a friendly bar food experience. Barrels for tables, free burgers and fries with some beers or ciders; very good fish and chips on the day I stopped by for lunch. Very friendly staff, attractive to the younger crowd.

You have to love a bar that plays some proper hip-hop. The first time I came here they were playing Pharcyde and then Dilated Peoples followed by some Big L. The bartenders are cool and their beer selection is awesome. They have micros from different...More

Has an excellent craft brew/microbrew selection. About 15 micros on tap and a number of microbrew bottles. If you are staying in this neighborhood and like this type of beer, then this is a must.
