    The Pimento Burger is topped with hot sauce, pimento cheese, pickled tomato and lettuce. The thick beef patty was wonderful, and the bun was perfectly grilled. The burger tasted great. Read more

    This is definitely my favorite bar in the city. It is always busy, but oddly mellow enough to not have to scream over your friends on a Saturday night. Also - get the tots, they are hand-rolled! Yum!

    Best beer and whiskey bar on the UES. Great bar bartenders who will let you sample everything on tap before actually picking your beer. Have TVs behind the chalk boards if you want to watch the game

    Not a snobby beer bar, the bartender, or owner, always helps me find a delicious beer without making me feel dumb. All whiskey can come in 1oz pours to make your own flights! Also, the food? HEAVEN!

    Favorite bar on UES! Great cocktails (try Smuggler's Run for something strong and flavorful!), tasty fresh late night food, quick, friendly, knowledgeable staff, and great, down to earth atmosphere.

    great selection of beer and whiskey. the dangerous game cocktail was very smooth, especially if you dislike the burn of whiskey. IPA fries were delicious and abundant. I will definitely come back here

    Delicious cocktails and a great menu! Don't miss their tater tots (which are really like balled potato latkes) and their chicken fingers! Good place to meet friends and hang out at night!

    Been here a number of times, had one night where the wings (which are normally excellent) were sub-par, but other than that the food has always been great. Very solid whiskey selection as well.

    Amazing beer and bourbon selection and even better bartenders. Don't be shy, ask for recommendations and you won't be disappointed. Easily my favorite spot on the upper east side.

    I came here and hadn't heard if any of the beers they had on tap. That was pretty cool and all of them tasted great.

    Bondurants never disappoints. They're known for their awesome beer selection, but what I love most is the vibe of the space, which always draws in a friendly crowd.

    Great UES bar! Friendly bartenders and delicious beers. Go when the weather is nice and the doors are completely open. Airy and low key! 👍🍻😎

    Great rotating beer list. Bar tenders and owner are super nice and will let you sample any beer before you try it. Also get the hush puppies.

    The best bar in the UES to get beer AND whiskey. The bartenders are very helpful (although sometimes overwhelmed). The food is fine...nothing really stands out.

    Great selection of beers w/ a decent crowd & friendly/knowledgeable staff. Tater tots were more like mashed potato balls (still good) & cornbread was disappointingly underwhelming. Solid wings though!

    Little gem on the UES, great beer on tap, good bar snacks and interesting cocktails. Give one of the seasonal beers a try.

    Researchers found that each bottle of beer a man drinks daily lowers his risk of developing kidney stones by 40%. Cheers to never having to pass a kidney stone again, or if you're lucky, ever. Read more

    Nice addition to UES but let's see where it goes. Beer and drinks no wine. Decent price but not a ton of options.
