Bad – Really a horrible experience. Food was cold when it arrived, waitress would vanish for 30 minute periods before reappearing, wrong side dishes were served, meals improperly cooked, and the manager failed to apologize when confronted. Will never go back.
Do Not Go Here. – Do not go here. Our orders were messed up, our waitstaff was unattentive and upon speaking with the manager regarding our list of problems (please note we had been at the restaurant for two hours attempting to get sandwiches) we were turned away smuggly. It was as though we inconvienced HIM by speaking of the terrible service and policies of this restaurant. I will never go to Times Square Brewery again, and if you value your time and energy, you won't either.
A few months ago... – ...I went to the Times Square Brewery and it was a good time but nothing particularly special. I like breweries and wanted to try the sampler. It was good solid beer.
Good Brew, Expensive Food – Looking at the menu already has clued me in the fact that its not worth eating as it looks overpriced and most people here are drinking anyways. Drinking here and crowd watching is nice occasionally, recommended more for tourists than for any local.
Confusion and Tasteless – We tried to give the Times Square Brewery a shot two times and both times were terrible. Forget getting good service. We waited for a straw, a glass of water, appetizers, and someone to clean off the table before dessert arrived. Dinner showed up undercooked and tasteless! No problem delivering the bill though. Save your time and money and eat anywhere else. Even Bubba Gumps Shrimp Restaurant is better food with better service.
OK Beer, Horrible Dining Experience – This restaurant should stick to just serving beer, which was good. However, the rest of the dining experience was absolutely terrible. The order was screwed several times either by the server or the kitchen. Every time the food was sent back, the order, to correct the restaurants mistakes, was put behind every other order in the restaurant. The entire ordeal took about two and a half hours for two sandwiches and some fries. The excuse given to us for the long wait was the restaurant was very busy that day, but the dining room was not even half full. I had finished my meal but we were waiting about an hour for my wife's meal to come back from all the mistakes and wrong orders brought to our table. The couple next to us was so fed up they left before their meals even arrived.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Three-level Times Square microbrewery and restaurant entertains families, tourists and theater crowds with traditional American menu, brewery views, two bars.
Pretty Good Brewery – A friend and I went on a Friday night and we had a great time. It was not too crowded and we were seated right away. The waiter came and within minutes we had our drinks and our orders taken. The food was very good for American Bar food, expensive, but I expect nothing else of eating in Times Square and compared to the Applebees next door it was a steal!
We tried the beer sampler and it was great and did not seem too expensive, which I would recommend - gives you a little variety. We loved some of the beers and after spending a year in Germany; we both thought that they measured up to good beer standards. My favorite was the pilsner! Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Take your business elsewhere. – The food is decent but overpriced. If you go to this restaurant for dessert and coffee, the hostess will send you "upstairs." Once you get there, no one will show you to a table; they'll just tell you to move to another table when you sit down. A waittress will come by, drop menus on your table without acknowledging you; then she'll go to a party of 8 and work that table for tips. Someone else will come along and take your order. Then the first waittress will come by to take away your plate when you're finished. As you're enjoying the last few sips of your coffee, the waittress will finally acknowledge you by saying, "We're having a private party here and we need this table, would you mind moving to another table?"
There are so many restaurants in New York City, don't waste your money here.
