Best BBQ Wings – 20cent wings + 1/2 off drinks = FTW. People need to stop complaining about how slow the service is. After going there a few time you'll learn how to manage your ordering skills and timing.
It's always crowded for a reason, because it's good. Period.
Actually I'm craving for their wings right now!
DO NOT EVER GO THERE! – I'm a very easygoing person, and I'm also patient, but there is no way 1849 is going to survive its business with such HORRENDOUS staff. Service is REPULSIVE. The first time I went, it took them a while to take my order without much of an apology for the wait..but this second time around is on a totally different level of BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE. Waitresses CURSE YOU OUT, YELL at you, and try to KICK YOU OUT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DON
Service Sucks Big Time! – I have been coming to this place for a couple of years with my friends and we have always had a good time. We always went on a Monday or Wednesday for the awesome wings. We knew the staff by their first names and they knew us. Things are different now, however, the staff is different and they all have attitudes.
Normally, a bouncer sits inside near the door checking IDs. Tonight when I stepped inside there was no one watching the door. I did get pulled outside by my coat from behind by this guy with an attitude. Turns out he was the bouncer. For some reason this bouncer did not feel the need to stand near the door where he can be noticed. Then as he is looking at my ID he was talking down to me like I was a child. That completely killed my mood.
I complained to the manager and all he would say is, "I am not going to say anything to him for doing his job." So either the manager is too scared to do anything or he supports the bouncer assaulting patrons and berating them.
The hot wings in this place are good but they are not that good that I am going to subject myself to treatment like that. Do yourself a favor and forget this dump.
THE WORST PLACE IN NYC – This bar is the absolute worst in nyc. I went there with my friends and even when we were standing on the line outside, we were being HARRASSED! The bouncers were yelling and cursing at us, for no apparent reason. The manager was, of course, scared of the bouncer and did absolutely nothing. We ended up calling the police on the bouncers for the assault and harrassment! NOT how the night was planned to be! I will never return to this place again nor will i recommend it to anyone. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU WANTED TO BE CURSED AT, IGNORED, AND HARRASSED!!!!!!
If you want to get INSULTED by the staff – If you want to be told 'go f___ yourself' by the staff when you ask for a glass of water ... YOU'VE FOUND YOUR PLACE! They take your money and you get a F U To your face for asking for WATER! What Planet is this place on?! They treat you like this cuz they Add 20% Gratuity to your bill! I live and play in Manhattan the finest high end restaurants don't do more than 15%!!!! IF THEY ADD ANYTHING TO YOUR BILL! Let's just say, after we were insulted we weren't about to tip 20% Are they insane? We were then told it's MANDATORY! It's called gratuity for a reason, and we happened to have a lawyer in our group who definitely knew better! So we crossed the 20% off, and they got NULL! I'm still unhappy when I think of the rudeness we've encountered there! They bully you, they ignore you, they cheat you! If it wasn't for those poor sucker tourists that don't know what they are in for, this place would have been LONG GONE! And a deserving business would have more patrons, that wouldn't otherwise go there! RIDICULOUS!
I checked off one star for the rating, because you have to rate it...but the EH should be more along the lines NOT IF YOU PAID ME!!!
I just noticed happy go luckys post "DEFINITION OF HORRIBLE" and Oh my! that's pretty much what happened to us!
In response to his review: The muffin top QUEEN behind the bar told my man I swear!!!! WAIT FOR IT! "GO F_ YOURSELF!" when he asked for water! My boyfriend is chill, but I've never seen him so furious. This place is the PITS OF THE US! You PAY to get insulted! We crossed out the 20% right off the bill And left 0! I should have thrown up the cheap nasty wings as I didn't want to take ANYTHING from that place when I stepped outside those doors! I sometimes wonder, whether it's legal to sit on the sidewalk with a sign telling my story! cheers mate to a shi- time had by all
Used to love it. What happened?? – I used to come to this place every other week with my friends to have a great time. Always looked forward to the delicious wings, beer and a good time. There was a waiter there by the name of Alan, he was awesome and the reason this place was great. Recently I visited and all the waiters/waitress were different. Not to mention the attitude I got from one of the guys with "boxing champ" T-Shirts behind them. I asked if it was possible to add an additional seat with "excuse me". He turns around points a finger at me and said "Don't Yo me". I was furious by my friends told me to not say anything back because he was responsible for our food. The wings came 45 mins after ordering and it was just chaos. I never wanted to write a bad review until now... I'm disappointed and going to look for a new wings place
rude server, worst food – I visited the restaurant, the server was extremely rude that it comletely ruined my weekend. The food aweful, the bouncer was extremely raciest that his behavior was absolutely disturbing. I am going out to have a good time but end up being one of the worst night ever. So you are going out to have a good time, DO NOT GO TO 1849. I can't not believe this kind of restaurant is still in business.
This is truly the most horrible bar in NYC. I have given this bar two tries and the EXACT same experience happened both times. When I arrived, the bar was empty and the waiter sat my friend and me at a table for two. After two hours of eating and drinking, the waiter told us that we had to move tables or we would be kicked out of the bar. Even though the bar was EMPTY, he said that he needed our table in case it got busy. We said that we would move once people arrived, and he started cursing at us. He and other waiters did this to everyone who walked in the bar. This place may have pretty chairs and cheap happy hour, but trust me RUN AWAY!!!! NOT WORTH IT!!!!! WORST BAR IN NYC!
RUDE UNAPPRECIATIVE STAFF – I made the mistake of going to this bar with a group of friends the other night and I was appalled at the disrespect we received from the bouncer to the manager. The bouncer gave my 30-something year old friends a hard time and wanted to be paid off, then the bartender proceeded to ignore our party for about 45 minutes and when we finally got their attention they were rude and walked away while we were speaking to them. While all of this was going on the manager was laughing and talking on the phone, completely oblivious to what was going on and ignored us as well. With all of the bars in this area I will NEVER come here again and I would not recommend this place to anyone unless they would like to be ignored, disrespected and given an attitude every step of the way.
GOOD TIMES! – Reading below people had some bad things to say about this place but I go every Monday with my buddy's and never have a problem. Jessica, the bubbly and sexy waitress always makes sure we have a great time. You really cant beat the cheapo wings and 3 dollar suds.
