    Excellent spot for outdoor drinks. Mostly a crowd waiting to head out of the City on the train so a good chance to meet new people as well.

    Roof top bar. Decent beer selection. Overpriced. Fun to yell at friends that are exiting Penn Station from atop the roof.

    Cool atmosphere but extremely slow service every time I have been here...even in the middle of the week and not during lunch rush we had to wait about 10 minutes before someone would serve us.

    The roof is great. The cocktail are nice. The Philly cheese steak was so delicious. I was so shocked by just how clean the men's restroom was.

    A great spot to enjoy rooftop drinks before or after a game, or to sit and watch a game on one of their countless TVs. The French Onion Burger is our go to food here.

    There's a new (as in barely open) beer garden. Nice atmosphere, will be great when they get the kinks worked out.
