This watering hole has the best of many worlds. Offering great food, drink and atmosphere. The food is delicious, the ales are ever changing and always amazing. The only downside is that while the decor is wonderful, there is very little space to accommodate the masses of people who are drawn to it. My only other complaint has more to do with menu pages than Harlem Public Itself; brunch on Sundays starts at 11!!! Not 12!!! So if you intend on beating the masses arrive early!!!

We had an about a 15 minute wait at the place which I think was getting off easy but we were seated soon enough. I ordered the sourdough Parmesan crusted burger which was simply delectable I highly recommend it.. The atmosphere was pretty good outside seating was available but I would suggest sitting outside if you want it to be a little more quieter, weird I know but can get pretty loud in there. The decorum is pretty nice not too cluttered and the bathroom is pretty cool to. Hope this helped a little.. Oh yea great beer!

Food should be better. Fish tacos? Where is the fish? Burger? Didn't even fill the bread. "Lettuce?" Garbage snippets. Fries? Very good, but salty. Go again? NEVER.

It's too bad there aren't more places like Harlem Public around - one of the only sit-down restaurants in the neighborhood so gets pretty crowded. Love that they serve tots.

This bar is what the west side of Harlem needed. Frankly, it could compete with any bar in the city. The crowd is fantastic, the food is above what any bar is serving for 50 blocks in any direction, and the beer is forever rotating. Complaints? It gets packed. Always.That must mean they are doing something right.....And I'm not knocking them for it.

I'll vehemently disagree with the reviewer who thinks this is a place for the barely 21 crowd. I frequently feel to be the youngest in the place, and I'm 27. The crowd is decidedly creative professional, hip, young-ish, and mostly comprised of those who enjoy the ever rotating selection of amazing beer. the food is great, from homestyle cooking, to a burger slathered in bacon and peanut butter. I've never been disappointed by anything, from chicken chunks, amazing guacamole, and aforementioned peanut butter burger. If you enjoy trying new beers, there's hardly a better place in the city. The only downside is that it changes so often you won't get the chance to try something again. So take home a ridiculously low-priced growler of it instead. The place gets packed super early, practically every night of the week. On our last visit, we did have to wait over an hour and a half at the bar to get a table. HOWEVER, the wait staff was attentive, apologetic, kept us updated and offered to cram us in if we didn't mind. The roundS of apology Jameson is above and beyond what I've ever experienced. West Harlem is on the up in neighborhood appeal, and Harlem Public is at the forefront of places to be. Go, and you'll never regret it.

This place is loud. Nothing but college kids who are finally legal to drink beer. Almost like you found yourself in a frat party. Food tries to be unique but just meh. Defiantly an overhyped place that has its reputation only because it has no opened competition
