    The first US location of a small chain of Irish brewpubs. In addition to pouring their house beers (brewed in Ireland), they boast an excellent American craft beer selection, too.

    This tavern is 400 years old and had served George Washington. Apart from being historical it has a great beer list and is a spacious tavern that is like taking a step back in time.

    Built in 1719. Opened as Fraunces' Tavern in 1762. George Washington gave his farewell speech as general in 1783. Interior was damaged by fires in the 19th century and reconstructed several times.

    Fantastic beers, try Abita pecan. Dinner is delicious (chicken and salmon) and the whole bar has great decorations. But it's empty. Why? Everything is overpriced and not inventive. Really too bad!

    This place rocks!! Took the best of a Dublin tradition and brought it to America. What a great concept!! Check out happy hour specials as well. I'll be back.

    Constructed in 1719 of yellow brick imported from Holland. Originally named the Queen's Head tavern in an open jab at the British monarchy during the Revolution. Learn more about the site via our blog Read more

    Sneaky Good Beer Bar way way downtown. If you are going to be near South Ferry and want a beer, this is a great spot. Amazing decor/history.

    Try pairing your meal with one of the house beers from Porterhouse Brewing Co, which is adjacent to this historic public house.

    Management is wonderful. All different rooms in which to sit. Can be very romantic or perfect for a group. A special historical New York moment.

    If it was up to par for George Washington—he famously toasted to his officers in the tavern’s long room in 1784—it’s good enough for us. You’ll feel proud just sitting there.

    Famous as the site of George Washington’s farewell speech to his troops, it’s a fine place to raise a glass and toast the founding father with one of the house brews.

    Don't tell them I told you but it's real easy to sneak a use of their restrooms from the Water St bar entrance.

    Not what it was when it first reopened. Went last night, the experience was very disappointing. Main dining room they put in new hideous furniture and service was terrible. Menu changed too, no bueno.
