Visited on day two of our June 2011 Northeast pubcrawl. I've been to The Ginger Man many times here in Ft Worth so I looked forward to seeing the New York version. Got a little lost on the way here, but my buddy had the genius idea of asking a beer truck driver for directions which got us right there. Overall I liked this better than the Texas Ginger Men with it's downtown feel (the one in Ft Worth looks like a converted single family dwelling). Great tap selection, fine service and comfortable vibe. Food was not that good - had the reuben and was very dissapointed that I wasted one of my two NYC meals. Still, focus is on the beer where it should be and this Ginger Man definitely delivered the goods.

The Ginger Man is, without a doubt, one of the prime craft beer locations in Midtown Manhattan. My job takes into the city 10-15 days a year and The Ginger Man is almost always my watering hole of choice.

The interior is pretty the platonic ideal of the classic pub. Lots of wood and the expected pub decor. Every time that I've been there it's been packed or near packed, though I will say that I'm nearly always there around 5 PM on weekdays, so that likely accounts for some of it.

The selection is fantastic. 70ish taps, with a good variety of local, regional, and national craft, along with British, Belgian, and German highlights. Best of all, there's always two casks on handpump, which is what I tend to gravitate toward.

I've never actually eaten there, so I can't account for the food, but it looks to be solid, British-inspired pub grub.

Beyond the beer, there's an excellent selection of whiskey.

The service can be a little dicey, especially when it's at its peak business. Not unfriendly, just inattentive. Prices are high, but not exceptionally so for New York.

Great place, Vibe is relaxed but still classy, service is decent, although the bartenders are much friendlier then the waitresses, very good selection.

First time at the Ginger Man on November 14. Very nice space with high ceilings and plenty of seating. Huge tap list, although the offerings were not mind-blowing. Food was solid. My only complaint is that they need more servers - the table service was painfully slow.
