Great for brunch, but lots of kids
I went here for brunch with a friend. We got there early, just before noon, and for the first fifteen minutes or so it was quiet and the service was excellent. However, once it started filling up it felt like there might have been too few waitstaff to handle the crowd. Also, almost every other table had young children, and it got very loud (kind of felt like a Chuck E. Cheese at points)--a bit too loud for a casual brunch. But that may be a plus if you have kids. Anyway, other than that, no complaints--the beer list was amazing and the food was excellent, so I'd still strongly recommend. Would like to go back sometime in the evening after the kiddos have gone to sleep.

Randolph Beer wasn't what I expected in a good way. Gastro-pubs have a rap for being hearty, moderately to noisy and packed. I don't know if it was the rain, but when my guests and I walked in , we were pleasantly surprised. Our hostess greeted us and allowed us to sit anywhere we pleased. We sat in the booth in the front and pretty much felt like we had the dinning room to ourselves.
The menu was your standard brunch fare with the typical eggs, toast, waffles, frittatas, and burgers. An eclectic mix for the meat lovers to the vegetarians. I highly recommend the crispy grits. My Egg White scrambled was healthier than I imagined, no complaints there. This is sure to become a neighborhood gem if it isn't someone else's already.

The dining experience was great - we had very tasty pork ribs paired with kale cole slaw and a DELICIOUS garden bigger that was definitely plenty and filling. Definitely recommend if you're with a small group and just wanting to hang out somewhere with good food, friendly service and a plentiful selection of beers.

Off the Eatin' Path
The waitress was friendly and casual in a very pleasant way. She was well-informed of the menu and the beer list. The food was tasty without taking itself too seriously.
The ambiance is dark and cozy, clean and rustic. Please note that they are not equipped to mix fancy cocktails. They can whip up a whiskey and coke, but not a Manhattan. They are a beer-centric bar.
The music was a little loud, but only because we were seated directly under the speaker.
Go to this restaurant now, before the rest of Manhattan catches wind of it. Also, try their cafe and bar next door.

Loved this place - food was
Loved this place - food was great but they rely too much on their happy hour. The beer is overpriced if you are going anytime after 7pm. They should consider bringing their beer prices down a bit to get people to stay later.

Best beer on Broome St
I work a few blocks from the Randolph, and have to say it is one of my favorite dinner and lunch spots. The food is spectacular...the Brussels sprouts are like candy, the fries are of the waffle variety, and the burger is a monster worth taking on. The lobster sliders and chicken sandwich are also personal favorites, as are the mussels. While the food is great, their most notable feature is their beer list. While it isn't one of those "every beer ever imaginable" type of spots, the list is carefully curated and arranged from light to dark, hoppy to malty. Great way to discover craft beers you've never heard of. For true beer fans, the rarities list has some hard to find or limited run beers for fairly reasonable prices. Nothing bad to say.

A 19-piece (yes, 19) impromptu
A 19-piece (yes, 19) impromptu bluegrass band broke out after we'd finish dinner and entertained the remaining diners (less than 19 of us, likely) with many songs. Enjoyed every minute of it, and had to pull ourselves away around 11:30, else we would've been there all night!

One of the best curated beer
One of the best curated beer menus downtown and the pub food (even for this vegetarian) is terrific! Even when it is hectic, I've never felt ignored by the waitstaff.

Vibrant beer palace
Nice bar/restaurant with vibrant music, good service, lots of beer to choose from. Was a bit quiet that evening, but it was a monday so that is to be expected. Food was good, simple and well executed.
