    Good cocktails. Slow service.

    Cocktails are all delicious--try the Penicillin! Great addition to the neighborhood. Just be careful if you sit outside, the smoke from the smokers outside the neighboring bro bars tends to waft over.

    The best whiskey joint on the uws. Can't beat the service and they've got the best glasses to slurp from.

    This is the type of place that should end up on Bar Rescue: Great potential, terrible management.

    Great American Mule cocktail.

    I think this is the least personable or unique restaurant on the upper west side (even after reno) maybe come for cocktails, NOT food.

    Old Fashioned + Pork Belly Toast

    The food was good. Great Bloody Mary. But owner yelled and cursed at his wife at table next to me. I'll never come back again.

    Baby kale salad was great. House cured pork belly is enough like a great brunch to bring a smile to your face.

  • Burger Weekly An extensive beer and whiskey list, a burger that will make your taste buds trip out, and fantastic appetizers make Barley & Grain a joint that is killing it.

    Order a Buffalo Trace and call me in the morning.

    Friendly staff and nice location for a sunny afternoon drink. Bloody Mary was beautifully spicy :)

    Amazing service!

    Small portions, but the air conditioning is great for the summer heat.

    Matthew Tucker · September 11, 2013

    Great selections of drinks, but run out of food items all the time, slow and pretentious service. Polish it up or you won't survive the competition in this neighborhood.

    Be warned: a whiskey bar 1st, a resto 2nd. Food is well-prepared overall, but plates are small, so order a side. Eggplant was on the bland side, black-&-white barley was chewy.

    Draft beers and some appetizers are half off until 7. Get a craft beer for $4! Those are LES dive prices. I think I've found my stumble-home bar.

    Watermelon Refresher is as advertised. Well balanced to still be "manly". Burger is nicely executed even on a ginormous bun. Cozy feel, great bar. Not well suited for large groups, perfect for dates.

    100 whiskeys. Bacon cocktails. Craft beer. Wagyu burgers. Read more

    New place specializing in whiskey - they have over 89 and are hoping to get over 100, including some really obscure varieties

    Great whiskey list. Watermelon refresher is exquisite as well :)
