I had the chicken and pancakes as a main course and sampled the cold corn soup. The soup was outrageous as well as the chicken. Portions are huge. A few things to note, acoustically the venue is horrible, and, sorry to say the seating is...More

This place is really great! It’s always busy because it’s great quality and huge portions! They always play great music too! Cool build out of old barn wood and steel. The pickles are awesome and the chicken and pancakes with bacon is insanely good!

Delicious food. Loud in the evenings so not great for conversation but you’ll be too busy chewing anyway. Save room for dessert. Biscuit bread pudding with vanilla ice cream...speechless. Large portions too.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Hello Elie, we've arrived at around 17:00 and we've found a table for two quite fast although it seemed packed. I'm guessing that a table for 2 can quickly transform into a table for 3 :) so I wouldn't worry about it.
