    Probably the best burger I've had in the city. Meat was moist, juicy, and pink even when I asked for cheese post-plating. Bar in front and food in back.

    Historic and fun, given the right crowd.

    They pour their beers right here. Get the burger or the lamb burger. Meat is aged well enough for you to get it at most medium rare, if not rare.

    Good place to grab a beer with a small group of people. The historical ambience adds to the vibe.

    Great spot for a classic burger and a beer to experience an NYC's oldest dive. But gets a bit loud at lunch time.

    The burger was good but have to downgrade it slightly because the bar is too old to have any outlets to recharge your phone. They do have a handy crank you can use but the wait is usually long.

    Great food, don't let the small kitchen and appearance fool you. Get a burger or the chili!

    During Prohibition, the townhouse was turned into a speakeasy with the upstairs apartment used as a boarding house, smuggler’s den and brothel. Read more

    I heard great things about Ear Inn and wasn't disappointed. I ordered the burger and it was amazing. It's made from Pat LaFrieda beef and was cooked perfectly. I love the old atmosphere - so cozy!

  • Eric V.

    Sit at the bar and have a stuff gin 'n tonic or a guinness. Have the bartender tell you about the old hotel and the history of the bar.

    Eric Venker · August 22, 2014

    Skip the cocktails.

    Abigail Argersinger · August 11, 2014

    Order beer or wine. Avoid the cocktails--they're not that great compared to the ambiance.

    One of the oldest bars in NYC. Tuesday night is motorcycle night, crazy amount of bikes there. One of few places you can drink on the sidewalk.

    Dylan McKenzie · December 14, 2013
  • Taylor H.

    Good burger. Skip the bacon.

    A designated NYC historical landmark, the old-time bar still advertises extinct beers while local bluegrass, jazz, and blues groups perform on the small stage.

    Great place to hang with my ol school homies. I hear there's some new trailer park trash that hangs there now. But, not deep enuff to threaten us regulars. No chance! Don would never let it happen!

    Lisa Yvette L · July 22, 2013
  • Kevin H.

    I visited for the first time recently and it's already a favorite. The staff is incredible, and if you're looking for a real Irish pub, this is it! Sit on the benches outside - and say hi to Marcus!

    Kevin Hicar · July 20, 2013
  • Bernadette S.

    Feel like in another century. The staff is friendly and I liked the burger! The cabernet sauvignon is marvelous. Liked the no cell phone area.

    There's a trap door in the mens room for a small animal or fish to escape. It's under a lid and the escape route is filled with water. A good flush will let your "little friend" escape to safety.

    Paul Fort · June 4, 2013
  • Matteo D.

    Grab a beer and have a good chat with the bartender, funny guy!
