    Lovely spot for a beer and happy hour, lives up to the name and is a bit old looking and traditional

    This is old time NY. Great simple bar food and cold drinks. Service is always good so enjoy this place for what it is, a great neighborhood bar.

    Literally the worst service I have ever experienced- bartender completely ignored me. I'm sorry, do I look a little younger than your clientele? Left as fast as possible

    Booths only fit 4 people. Get a whiskey!

    Ignore any tips about an award for best wings in 2011. In 2016, their wings are terrible. The chicken was dry, the skin was not crispy and the sauce was thick and gloppy. PASS.

    Skip it!!! unless youre into waiting 20 mins for one beer and paying $12 for jager shots. They might have the most salty staff in NYC.

    Classic no-frills pre-Prohibition bar. A solid NYC original not trying too hard to impress. Grab a pint.

    Ask the bartender Fitz for his opinion on the Islanders, Kennedys and old Chinese women.

    Love it! It's conveniently located at Union Square, and there is plenty of room for large groups. We ate some fantastic turkey burgers (juicy!) and really great BLTs

    Try the vegan burger. It's amazing. HA! Fooled you. Reward yourself after the crap day you've had with a bona fide whiskey. It'll help you come to grips with your pathetic existence.

    You can hide things under your seat in the booths. The women's bathroom is inconvenient to get to. It's very clear that Men were top of the list when this place was designed. Old, warm vibe.

    The bathrooms are like taking a p#ss back in the late 1800's. The wings are amazing.
