    The place was quiet which I appreciate but service was crazy slow. I got the lamb burger which would be better if it was medium rare like I asked and not medium well/well. I will not come back :(

    Best "sports bar" around. i.e., only a couple TVs, folks passively pay attention, not a 'sports' crowd at all, never too busy, food is fantastic, and beer list is primo.

    Annoying to pay the same price for 10 or 12 ounce beers that you'd pay for a pint anywhere else. Beermisers! Great selection though

    Everything here is delicious. And the servers know what they're talking about, so ask them for suggestions and pairings. The rotating beer list is one of the best in the city.

    At the risk of sounding WAY too Brooklyn, the Kale Farrow salad is ridiculous. I don't even know what farrow is but when it's topped with cheese and mushrooms it's right up my alley.

    Tough to beat $1 oysters at happy hour. A fine draft list too. On the negative side for me- the shucker did a 1/2 ass job, meat attached to shell on all oysters. Glasses are thick glass bottomed.
