For our first night in NYC on vacation, we had reserved a table at DBGB. What a great place! Very lively! If you like your places quiet and intimate, this may not be the right place! But if you like people watching, great food and excellent service...it is the place. French brasserie type food, but a notch up. The cucumber... More

The Downtown Bar and Grill is supposed to offer over 100 beers - with over 20 on tap. But if you can get the attention of the bartender, you may find that your selections just happen not to be there! Not friendly or helpful - don't bother - there are plenty of other good pubs in the area.

To be honest the food is pricey considering it is a bar, but it is delicious! What is more important is the beer though - wow! More than 900 kinds, including some with an alcohol percentage in the 30's!! Every country you can think of, every type... including a fresh from the barrel, carbonated and yummy! The barkeeps are generally... More

Just wahat other reviewers said, extensive beer selection, especially bottled ones. Have been in Brooklyn for 4 days and was looking for somwhere quiet for food and a couple of drinks. Really nice bar. Food was nice, normal kind of menu, burgers etc. But its the selection of beer that would bring me back

It's an exceptional place to have a beer with top notch bottles and vintage beer offerings. People were friendly and relaxed and it's a go-to place for knowledgable beer drinkers from anywhere in New York City. The staff is also pretty knowledgable about the wide selection of beers. The prices are reasonable, but not cheap. You'll only find high quality... More

This place has a huge beer selection. I love going here to enjoy a drink outside during good weather, outside other times. The food I have had here is really good too.

Nice atmosphere and neighborhood. Lots of locals. The food is decent. Pretty much your average bar food (burgers, mozza sticks, etc.) But what sets this place apart is the beer list. They have 20+ beers on taps (including many craft beers) and over 850 beers in bottles. It was nice to watch a basketball game while drinking beer from the... More

Best beer selection in town, above-average quality bar food, and Matt is my favorite bartender of all time. The prices, however, are downright stupid.
