When the beer menu is lamenated you know you are not in a true beer bar. Literally half the bottles they didn't have, the cask was skunked and the bartender (who was visiting from the other location) was generally clueless. food is pub grub and ambiance is basically run down pub. TVs are old and small so not good for sports. Really no reason to go there considering all the options within 2 blocks.

Service was excellent (with a smile), beer selection to die for (so-o-o much on draught). Food not especially creative, but promptly served, and hot. Just kind of allright, nothing to write home about. Saw two Irish folk having a fry-up, but drinking Budweiser!! Twits!! Life's too short to drink cheap beer.

6 of us were here and loved the beers and the food. A great place to go to get "pubby" food.

My friends & I went here before going to a concert at Nokia Theatre. The food is really good bar food, but Midtown prices make me wonder if you really get your money's worth no matter where I'm eating. The chicken tenders, Belgian frittes, & mushroom fries are awesome! We had to practically beg our waitress to keep up w/ our drinks, but the food made up for the inattentive service.

I've been three times now and that I'm sure is for starters. Seasonals such as Harpoon Summer, Ayinger Wheat and the full promise of equally good fall and Oktoberfests will bring me back. What's new? Invokes a huge response at this beer bar. I tried a pint of cask conditioned, hand pumped Bengali Tiger from a small brewery called Sixpoint, I think in New York (can't remember). Sweet, maybe a little too sweet but cask ale sampled and enjoyed nonetheless. Lovely and cool but not cold! Great flavors really enhanced by the warmer temps. I believe that they rotate thru a variety of casks. So I'll be back!

Bar food was fine as such. Beer selection was awsome. Price reflects midtown location. Service, that's the reason I'll go back. The staff and highly trained and happy to be there. Fast and furious ! The blew me away with the info about beer. Not all off the tip of their tounge but some off a built in database in a house computer. Customers can get a printout with info about any of the 80 beers on hand. Some are detailed beyond belief, hops malts and IBU's for starters, ABV's and CofO etc. The PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE for me though was a local brew (CHELSEA PIERS) on a hand pumped cask. Lovely, ah yes, just lovely.

I traveled across the country and around the world by beer ! This bar has a great selection of craft and international beer served by fast efficient staff. The House of Brews is a very regular stop for me and my crew now.
