    Burgers here are surprisingly delish. And served on an English muffin 👍

    One of my staples if I'm on the UWS. Great beer list and can always be seated within 20 minutes.

    Bison and lamb burguers: amazing! And the onion rings and sweet french fries are fantastic. Very nice atmosphere.

    The beer of course! The service was great! Great atmosophere! Richie was a great host and very personable! The food was excellent. Loved the Angus burger and sweet potato fries. I will come back!

    Ridiculous beer names, friendly waiters, long list of drafts. This place delivers exactly what it promises.

    Best spot for a beer and chill dinner on the UWS any time of year. Burgers are served on English muffins, try the lamb or turkey. Back room is cozy with the fire place, but caution it can get hot.

    The pulled pork sandwich was pretty tasteless. Amazing onion rings, though!

    For a place that prides itself on its okay beer selection, they should probably clean their tap lines. Order one beer, taste another because the lines are dirty. UWS needs better craft beer options.

    Nice beer selection. Food is the normal pub grub. Burger was okay, but the onion rings were drenched in oil - sat in my gut like a brick all night. Outside seating is good, but fills up quickly.

    Good food and decent place for medium sized groups.

    was outrageously refused a table on the grounds that "right now, tables were only for dinner", despite being called an ale house. Left.

    Great selection of rotating drafts and fair price for a nicer beer than a Stella. Depending on your budget, the special bottles can be a good idea or just a great turndown if you're not a big beer fan

    You can taste stuff if the list gets too daunting. You might get luck and get a tiny tasting mug!

    I would call the catfish burrito their signature dish. It's awesome, I always get it, with the sweet potato fries. The ales are diverse, fresh, and regularly changing also. 👍👍 Usually pretty crowded

    The wings are surprisingly good - recommend. Craft beer selection is good too.

    Used to love this place... Until they served a pizza on a dirty used plate with soiled napkins and a half eaten piece of chicken underneath.

    Pretty good draft beer selection. These laid back pub/restaurant is a quiet place to chat and throw back a few pints.

    Nice beer selection. We only went for drinks, but the food looked really good! My only complaint: why does EVERY dessert on your menu contain tree nuts? No options for me.

    The best turkey burger in the neighborhood. And obviously the beer selection is awesome too.

    Cool place at a nice area. Great burger. Perfect for a beer after a long walk in the central park.

    SOLID beer selection. Skip the apps and go straight for the entrees. Lamb burger + Czechvar Lager FTW.

    The best bar on the upper west side hands down. Anna is the best waitress ever! Order a delirium and then pass out in the bathroom!

    Mosaic IPA - Blue Point Brewing Company + Bison Burger + Sweet Potato fries with Cinnamon + Monday Night Football = Awesome Monday Night on the Island.

    Amsterdam Ale House is usually a mellow local water hole but turns into a madhouse during big sporting events.

    Wide beer selection at great prices. Get anything with fries. The fries are amazing.

    Rude waitress who rolled her eyes at us 2 times. only positive was the good beer selection. Must be a shortage of glasses because they practically ripped them from our hands before we were finished.

    Be aware-get to know staff. 2/3 owners are great. One named Jacob is awful to his employees and customers. Great food atmospheres. $ goes up alchemy shows come to theater close by though.

    "Someone tell these bros to shower, right? Hahaha!"--These bros. (Ipso facto, come for the ill beats, stay for the dope-ass beers. Bring deodorant?)

    The soft-shell pretzel goes perfectly with their great beer selection. It's filled with white cheddar and served with chorizo and sautéed mushrooms.

    Take advantage of the variety of microbreweries and lesser known beers on tap/bottled!

    In the words of my dining companion, "Lamb burger plus spinach plus Belhaven Scottish Ale equals effing glorious."

    Great neighborhood bar. Burgers are great and there's always a new beer on tap. Service can be slow so be prepared to linger

    Great pour selection, but watch out: it gets packed if there's a concert at the Beacon next door

    Surprisingly good selection of local seasonal brews. Order up a $6 glass of something 10%+ abv and feel just a bit smug about finding this place.
