    Stopped in for dinner after a matinee show before heading home.Seated on time.Friendly staff.Nice menu.Great beer selection and more non alcoholic beers than most places.Cuban sandwich was one of best I’ve had,they’re my current choice to try if it’s on the menu.My wife loved her burger and very pleased to get side salad instead of fries as an option.Will definitely be here again when we park at Port Authority

    Friday night at 6:00pm. Nice ambience. Easily hold a conversation without yelling. We sat at the windows overlooking Broadway. Food was good, nothing overwhelming. We got burgers and cheesesteak. Good selection of beer. Kind of pricey, but it’s NYC. Would not hesitate to go again.

    Stopped in at Beer Authority for a quick bite - and it was a fantastic meal. The fig salad was fresh and delicious. The homemade veggie burger was outstanding. And the waffles with ice cream were amazing. My server Antonio was an absolute star. Reasonable prices, too. It can get a bit loud, but that’s part of the fun.

    Originally booked to watch the Super Bowl. So had dinner and drinks. Food was amazing portion sizes are on point. Good selection of food and drink. Staff are great, very friendly. This was next to my hotel so perfect to walk to and from if the weather wasn’t the best.

    Our server was obviously a nice person, but he had no concerns about providing service. In the two hours we dined, we spent the nearly 90 minutes waiting for an appetizer. One entree arrived before the appetizer. We were fortunate to get one round of beers. The atmosphere was very festive for Christmas, however, it was incredibly loud. It was difficult to do any visiting at a two person table, and due to the very long wait for food and no refills on the beer… That was a little bit frustrating. When the bill came we had an automatic 20% gratuity added because the bill was over $100. We had truly received very poor service, and, I was surprised to see that I would not have any choice in the tip. We would not return to this restaurant.

    We had reservations for 5. We got there and they did not have a table for us. It took awhile but they eventually got us a table. Kind of annoying but we got our table. After that everything was great. Food, service and good vibe.
