Beer Authority has an extensive selection of beers and a great selection of food.
Went there before a show. Fast service. Great selection of beer and mixed drinks. Food is ok. Really loud, but not so bad you couldn’t talk.
Midtown bar with pub grub menu. Extensive draft beer selection is the big plus.
Nice section of beer....and food was tasty.....recommended
If you make a reservation for you and someone else, don't expect it to be fulfilled when you get there and tell you your table is bumped because there's a party of 20 coming in, then a party of 30 after. Other small tables were left reserved as well. So our table was bumped instead of giving us what we wanted, which was available because we were only a party of 2. We reserved a high top, not a few tables. Seat us then and there, at the table we requested as it was available. When the other parties with reserved tables come in, figure it out then. Hostess made us feel like we were not good enough.....I get it, our bill wouldn't have been anywhere near the cost bigger parties would rake in. But hey, we were paying customers none the less. And we were celebrating a birthday. The high top was reserved in the event friends were coming after work hours.
Happy hour prices can definitely be better also. Work on that.
Flew from Florida and met family from California for dinner. Place was nice once we were upstairs. A little unkept downstairs. Service was just “okay” we were handed off to another server after we placed our orders and she didn’t show much interest in us, and you could tell she was a little aggravated she has to pick up a table. In all my years in restaurant management, I would never let a server pass off a table just to go home - it’s just unprofessional and makes the guest feel like they’re unwanted. Food was good, though it took a while to come out. Look into expanding the cider offerings - that’s continuing to be a trend, and I missed the variety.
Nice atmosphere, typical American menu, tacos, burgers ect but as the name suggests an extensive list of beers. Recommend the draft Guinness.
Great beer selection! Everything was great except burger was overcooked. Everything else was perfect!
Food was mostly good, except the cheese was missing on the bacon, egg, and cheese. Servers were nice, but the restaurant was late to open, leaving us sitting around. Great value, will probably go back.
Hostess very quickly seated us. Waitress stretched thin - running all over. Bus staff pretty useless in supporting waiters. Food OK.
Service was slow.
It was good not great. It worked fine for us. It’s nothing special or memorable but is fine for a casual dinner and drinks with friends.
Waitress was very rude. Noticed other table was not having a good experience with her.
Good place for lunch! Not overpriced and tasty menu
Christmas Eve dinner was perfect!
Our server (I think her name was Caitlin?) was pretty rude. Never checked on us despite being pretty empty. Had to flag her down for everything. Otherwise beer list was pretty nice and food was tasty! Cool spot!
Went with coworkers after work. Had a great time. Will definitely organize it again
Our 6:15 pm reservation was honored and we were brought to a table near the windows so the view outside was as good as it could be given the location. Due to how busy it was I was not able to get a flight of beers to taste which I can understand in a way but I found it unusual for a place call "Beer Authority". The beer list appears good but I was not able to try more than one. We had theater tickets and service was fast enough that there was not concern getting us out in less than 1 hour. Although the experience was good I would not rush to go back with so many other taverns in the area.
Went in for some beers on untapped but they were out of 3 of my 4 desired beers. I wish they kept that up to date.
The founders burger was one of the best burgers I ever had. Amazing! Pulled pork sliders were delicious as well!
Dinner was good. I would recommend this place if you are in the area.
I was happy that I was able to make my reservation on line just the day before we needed it; and the restaurant honored our request for a window table. Everyone in our party totally enjoyed what they ordered.
Very rude waitress, had to complain to management to send a new server with better attitude.
We were seated immediately, but we waited for a really long time until the server came to take our order. The food was okay, but we were really unimpressed by the service. Took too long, didn’t ask if we needed refills or anything. Every time we needed something we had to go out of our way to flag the server down.
Great burgers and extensive beer selection. Great value for the price.
Avevamo chiesto se ci fosse qualche piatto piccante, la cameriera ha detto no, risultato: 2 dei 3 piatti presi erano extrapiccanti.
Brisket Hash was dry and the 'over easy ' eggs were served over HARD. My wife's Brisket Dip Sandwich was also dry with a poor bread to meat ratio and no au jus to 'dip' with. When we for asked au jus, we were told no problem by the waiter. He brought back a soup cup full of what looked like greasy chicken broth. This is not the fault of the waiter who was very good at his job. Pleasant, polite and attentive. I would rather like to think that since it was NYC Marathon Sunday and the place was very quiet, that the kitchen just wasn't on stride. It's a pretty cool place to look at and the drinks were fine although a bit pricey ($14.00 for a 3 oz Kettle One). If you think you're going to tuck in to something sumptuous and very special, look elsewhere.
Decent place to watch a game. Good beer list and great service. Food was below average.
Food was good. Service was not great. Our wait staff switched mid way thru and our order was not accurate. It was difficult to figure who to talk to in order to get the issue resolved. Plus we went without drinks being refilled. Honestly the wait staff did not seem to care.
Service good. Much too loud even for a sports bar. Menu limited. Food ok for what it was.
Nice place with very large beer selection. Food was simple and tasty. Service was very good as well. I would definitely go back.
Very spacious upstairs, good rooftop bar, friendly service. Would recommend for anyone looking for a place to eat near Port Authority!
This was my 2nd time there. Very loud and I had to yell to talk which I don't enjoy- my ears were ringing for days. Rooftop just ok and first come first serve.
There's not a lot of choices in this area that aren't awful Beer Authority is a solid, friendly sporting type bar with a great beer menu and yummy food. You're not going to do better than this unless you want to go somewhere really sitdown-y.
A decent beer list, though only one cask ale was disappointing, especially as the one choice was a fruited wheat ale.
Great location & food!
Before concert dinner. Good beer and food selection
We were visiting for the day. Beautiful sunny hot day. We made reservations for a rooftop lunch. No one told us nor did it specify on website that the rooftop didn’t open till 5! Very disappointed plus restaurant was very warm. We had asked to turn up the air and were told “it’s on”! All in all the food was good.
Great place for dinner and beer. Cocktail list is good as well, which can be unusual for such s beer centered place.
Staff pas très sympathique!
On ne nous a pas demandé la cuisson pour les hamburgers ils étaient beaucoup trop cuits. Bière enlevée a mon mari de façon fort cavalière car nous avons fait gouter a notre fils de 18 ans celle ci mais que l on n a pas oublié de nous facturer. Bref pas de très bon souvenirs dans ce resto.
Brunch was terrible. The menu listed here is NOT accurate. Food was terrible and the music was terribly loud.
