    This place is a must visit for the internal architecture / design. Failed to make a connection or a 'wow' but was impressed by the expansive layout. Food was just 'average' but service was good.

    Went last night before seeing Jerry Seinfeld. Beer was warm and food was mediocre at best. Dry pork chop and flavorless steamed vegetables. Won't be back.

    All the beer is too hoppy, the pale ale is really good though bc that's supposed to dance on your tongue and it does. The pumphouse burger is pretty standard too. Not bad, not stellar.
