Fav place for burger & beer.

A few colleagues and I headed to Old Town for some burgers. The meat was severely overcooked and the fries were mediocre. The bun wasn't anything special. I might be back for drinks, but definitely not for the food.

The people before me have pretty much said it all. Over the years I always find myself bopping in here. It has such a wonderful feel to it, and the food is fantastic. It a place can be medicine for the soul, this place is surely it. Come in, have a drink and eat in a place that can be good for your spirit as well. Highly recommended!

I've always enjoyed (as in, I think they are the best in the city) wings here, the burger is very good too. But the waitresses here are awesome. It's like having your very own mom for an hour. They aren't annoying models or disillusioned theater majors, they are nice but not too nice, bring you your food, and check in just enough. I love this place.

old bar has been around forever but it looks dark and dreary from the outside - well, i finally went in a couple of days ago. what a great neighborhood place! friendly and welcoming. the beer is cheap by ny standards and the food, while a bit limited i think, was very good. the burgers and fries are great. and they do hot dogs really really well - who would think?! anyway, i'm happy i found it.

this is the quintessential NY neighborhood bar. the staff is very good, the drink prices are fair, and the food (limited that it is) is quite good - a great burger and fries, and i feel almost silly mentioning that the hot dogs are great! a very casual friendly place to place. p.s. it doesn't look great from the outside!

I'm 57. I'd been in US, but only West. I thought New Yorkers were in-your-facers, Madonnas, Streisands, Woody Allens, mad people who might kick you away from their private preoccupations, and I didn't want to go there. For a personal reason I spent five days there in May and got to love it. So much that I went back for a fortnight (that's a word you don't use) in September... and I found the OT. The old-time grace of the bar, the beauty of its area, with the detail in the surrounding buildings, high, but built by hand, and the laconic courtesy of the staff, always in good humour, even when they thought I was beginning to live there, turned my head around about NYC and the USA. And one day the boss said 'I want you to talk to somebody' ... and he introduced me to a Nobel laureate . Others, I see, describe it as an Irish bar, but it's not. It's a New York bar. That's all it is. That's all it needs to be. And thankfully they know that. Go raibh maith agaibh uilig.
