I have gone back here half a dozen times...I don't know why I keep hoping it will be different. The menu is extensive, and everything I've ordered there has been great. But never ONCE have I been happy with their service. No one on staff notices when a customer walks in, when you finally seat yourself & order your food, the only other time you'll see your server is when your food is delivered. After that, if you want another drink, or if there's something wrong with your order or you want to pay your check, you're on your own to get up & track down your server & force them to give you a minute of their time. And if you're like me, and you think sitting at the bar might allow for better service since the server is never more than a few feet away from you...well, forget it.

The waitstaff are untrained or uninterested and the food, while a good value and a great selection of bar type food, is inconsistent and you never know what will come from the kitchen. You can sit and wait and then get food that is not prepared well (or again, completely different than what you ordered before) and then sit and wait some more for another beer or your check. Forget it if they left something off your order 'cause by the time the waitress comes back you will be done with your meal.

I define a dive bar as one that is unpretentious first and foremost. If they have great beers and a solid menu then its just bonus. Secondly a place that you can say what's on your mind from politics to s.e .x. this place meets that criteria. i have not had a bad beer or meal there yet. keep it up dive bar!

Used to go here for the past decade and a half, and it was a steady local. But no longer. Simply stated, there are too many 20-something trust fund frat jocks and sorority girls, the new demographic on the UWS. Yet another good joint and neighborhood bite the dust. Suburbia on the Hudson lives!

Like the title says, this is the best bar on the UWS. They have a great selection of beers, many local. The bar hosts lots of beer tastings and other fun events. Service is always great, as is the food. The wings and homemade sweet potato chips are worth a trip.
