    Yummy food (we shared adobo ribs, chicken satay and beef tacos) and attentive service in this busy bar and restaurant. The small dining area in the back is separated from the bar by a wood and glass panel which helps reduce noise. It does help though the volume is still high enough that you’ll need to talk loudly with your dining companions. We enjoyed our meal. This was a pre concert dinner (Madison Sq Garden is nearby). We’d definitely go back.

    Always a great spot before an MSG event. The food is excellent and it’s a smaller, more intimate place than others in the area. As a repeat customer, I highly recommend.

    It was so loud that you couldn’t really have a conversation. Nobody likes that. Install some noise abatement. Otherwise, it was a perfect place to grab dinner before a concert!

    The Malbec they served me was definitely opened a while ago and turning bad, but because I was with a client, I didn't want to act like a snob and return it. But that shouldn't happen. I would recommend Haymaker primarily based on its location being near Penn Station.

    First time, everything good except they didn't have are open table rez, though we did have one, they accommodated us but we had to leave by a certain time. Noise level was high but normal before a hockey game, I guess 🤔...

    So lucky have had the back room to our selves!! The front of the house looked very busy! Food came fast and good and close to MSG! Not the coziest service or ambience, but points added again the the back room to have a long catch up with my bestie.

    Our experience was really great, everyone who works there is so nice. The beer selection is on point. The tacos were a measly in terms of portion size and the person who got them had to get more food somewhere else after. The burger was really good though!

    Our server was pretty grumpy. She sometimes didn't even reply to us. That being said, the food was really great. The wings were crispy, the burger delicious, and the fries were crispy AND fluffy. The draft list was extensive and organized by style, which I liked. It was wicked crowded and we had to maneuver around people. The food and beer was worth it.

    Haymaker Bar & Kitchen is loud and wall to wall people. We made our reservation for 3 was placed all the way in the back with barely enough room for two, let alone 3 of which two were tall women. We asked to be seated at a 4 top, but was told they were all reserved-- no one was seated for the two hours we sat crammed into our little section. Asked for the dessert menu and was told they didn't have dessert. Not a place for business meetings or catch ups-- drinking and shouting only. Great for happy hour. I took off stars because of the obscene noise level, they didn't have dessert and the lousy seating--

    We really enjoyed our drinks and dinner. We were there early and the bar tender took our first drink order and then we didn't see her again and asked the waiter in our section and he took over our table and felt so bad that he had not attended to us and he was very attentive the rest of the time we were there.

    The bar was very noisy. Our party had asked if we could be moved to a quieter area and at first request we were told that nothing was available. On a second request we were jammed into a a small table in the back room. We asked for the larger table and once again the hostess denied our request. We should have left. The larger more comfortable table never got seated. In fact by the end of our meal we were the only people on the back room laughing at ourselves crunched into a corner. There was no reason to be treated so poorly.
