If I don't have at least 1 -3 knick visits a week I'm depressed. Great food, amazing drink selections, cocktails, wines and the best beer selection you can get at a bar. Great service and staff too!

We have been here many times for meals as well as just for a drink. The selection of beer on tap is great, especially if you enjoy craft brews, and the atmosphere in both the front room and back room reminds me of pubs in the UK. The menu is extensive, and features mostly pub-style fare. Prices are reasonable, and... More

Husband and I had either a late lunch or early dinner. The homemade tomato garlic soup was out of this world. So delicious. Hubby had a gyro and I had the steak souvlaki(sp) ..both were delicious. They were generous with the tzitiski (sp) sauce too. Very good drinks! Can't wait to return to try more dishes on the menu. Not... More

The Knickerbocker Tavern is a nice neighborhood pub. They have a large selection of beers on tap. And a large menu of pub food. The service is friendly. A good place for a group get-together.

Went to dinner with intown and out of town family members. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the Knick. We sat outside and had a fun evening. Food was good and fairly priced.

This restaurant received good reviews and a unique location (historical place)- not to mention, an extensive beer selection, so we decided to try it while stopping overnight in town. The food was good and plentiful. Paper plates for a shared appetizer and baskets for our sandwich/fries. The beer selection was great. Our waitress was not very attentive and quite forgetful,...

Depending what you like and the atmosphere you prefer, this bar is a good place. It is mostly made up of a wealthier, preppy crowd with higher prices than your average bar, but for the most part it's a good bar. Great food and good entertainment at times.

Haven't been to the Knickerbocker in years. Food & atmosphere was decent but feels like my cluttered, dusty grandmother's house--will not be returning soon.

Stopped in for dinner after seeing Horseshoe Curve and loved it! Great beer selection, full bar, good food. They just added a nice patio in the back if you rather sit outside. Parking is across the street, left of the building.
