This place is the tale of two visits.
I chose it for the evening of the NYC June 2007 meeting based on a visit I made earlier in the year. The first visit we kept to the inside and it was a lot of fun. A small inside bar keeps everything friendly and together. They have dining rooms and an large outside.
The outside beer garden on the Saturday of the meeting was nothing but a huge frat party atmosphere and nothing like what I had experienced before. Not to mention they were keeping a line outside on the sidewalk to get inside for no reason but to have a line. It was nearly half empty when we got inside after a 15 minute wait. For this reason alone, I doubt I will ever return here or at least not during the summer season.
