As one of New York's oldest restaurants and bars, we understand the need for good, fresh comfort food and just the right beer to wash it down....
historic bar. no frills. very local crowd. good beer and food. love it.
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.
Oldest bar in NYC!! Go for the atmosphere and read up on the history! Burger is good and the people are friendly
Classic New York. Hop in here when the weather's nice and drink a beer outside.
Fantastic jazz music real old world and good eats !
Nice little bar - they let you draw on the tables!
Open until 4 AM...dangerous
Let's draw on the table!! It's the creatives hang out!!
Great food, don't let the small kitchen and appearance fool you. Get a burger or the chili!
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!
Actual Irish brewed Guinness on draught.
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.
Skip the cocktails.
Order beer or wine. Avoid the cocktails--they're not that great compared to the ambiance.
Crayons at the tables - what more could you ask for?
Mickey the best bartender ever!
My how this place has changed!
west vil institution!
Finbar is here!
With these crazy kids.
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.
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!
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!
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.
Grab a beer and have a good chat with the bartender, funny guy!
The best burguers that i & my byfriend taste in our lífe
Food was pricey and service was not great.
Great vibe on this Saturday afternoon. Like being in a London bar.
great service and old school atmosphere
In a building that dates from 1817, the Ear Inn started serving beer and spirits in the mid-19th century, operating without a name until new owners christened it the Ear Inn in 1977. - From Eater NY
Cosy, bar in the winter time for ale and comfort food.
The B in the neon BAR is partially painted over to read EAR, after the the Ear Magazine that used to be published upstairs
Best try the chicken pot pie
Live jamming was great!
an Old Fashioned pairs quite nicely with a bowl of Cowboy Chili here
The Ear Inn, originally built for the African American Revolutionary War veteran and tobacconist James Brown, is one of the few Federal style buildings remaining in New York.
The Vinho Verde has a delightful sparkle to it.
one of the oldest, best bars in NYC. supposedly it's called The Ear because the sides of the "B" in their "Bar" sign out front wore out. ask the bartender if it's fact or myth.
Go on Sunday night for live Jazz!
A designated Landmark of the City of New York (from 1817) the Ear Inn has been serving history and home cooking since the turn of the century.
Steeped in history, this is the quintessential New York Neighborhood bar.
More hot sauce.
