    They make a great Manhattan here. Also a nice selection of brews. I spent most of my time at a party downstairs and it was nice and comfortable. Staff was great and prices very reasonably. Hit it up!

    This is one of those places. You know the places you go when you are an intern in the city and you want to meet someone else in their 20s to spend the night with. After that it wears off..

    My favorite restaurant. The buffalo chicken salad is amazing, especially because of their peeled celery and carrots as a topper. The steak salad's great too. Actually, everything here is effing great.

    My go to lunch place when I am in the area! Great lunch deals and beer selection. Order the chicken sandwich with chipotle mayo - you won’t regret it.

    A fratty and crowded bar by night. We prefer to come here on a lazy Sunday afternoon for their $6 sangria special.

    A classic. Fun at night out with friends, but gets very crowded. I've also gone during the day when it's less packed for a beer and played charades with friends :)

    Curly fries are tasty and a great value for only $5 per huge serving. Great spot to watch games; several large TVs throughout the dining area.

    Good place for after work drinks especially if its nice outside. Watch your tabs at the bar, they've been known for adding drinks to your tab if you're in a large group thinking you won't notice.

    Amy is such a breath of fresh air in an isle of glib servers. Trust her food recs, and enjoy a very welcome "I'm not from here" attitude that results in hand written recs to other venues.

    Happy hour wines are $5 and a very healthy pour. Good after work crowd and good place to dance on the weekends.

    The Penny Farthing has a great draft beer selection, go for the Goose Island ($7), but if beers not your thing there also a decent selection of inexpensive wines – try the Martin Codax Albarino.) Read more

    The brunch menu ventures into playful fare like the most popular dish, "eggs in a nest," two eggs served any style over parmesan toast. The mimosas, bloody Marys and sunflower martinis are also good. Read more

    Buffalo Mac & Cheese is delicious. They have a good beer selection. It could get very crowded during peak hours.

    Dope spot. Always a great time. A lot of room upstairs and down, and downstairs can be fun when they turn the lights off.

    Crowded but huge place. Sit at the bar if it's just for drinks or have to order something to eat to have a usual. Wine is good

    This place can get pretty crowded on the weekends. If you can't get to the bar, there's another one downstairs that may save you time.

    This might have been a great bar if I were still in college, had no respect for myself, was attracted to douchebags, and enjoyed drunk sweaty men shoving me around all night.

    If you're looking to meet drunk college kids in NYC, this is the place to do it! Book the downstairs area for your birthday.

    It's a bar. With a heavily wooden decor. And a modest beer selection. A nice fall-back, I suppose. (Didn't order food.)

    Never have so many manly men ordered such girly drinks. You just keep yelling about that cranberry vodka and two Bud Lights, guy. It's working.
