Without question, a NYC institution. As long as there's a market for craft beer, there will be Mug's Ale House.

Just three blocks from the Bedford Avenue stop on the L train, this place is packed to the gills almost every night. On the weekends? Fuggedaboutit. Don't be suprised if its standing room only.

The bar is a conjunction of two low-lit, cavernous type rooms that have been incensed by a steady flow of beer over the past decade. There are about two dozen taps, half of which are permanent and the other half rotating. In addition, through the fall and winter months there are also a couple of cask lines as well.

The service is the shining star at this place. Whether its the bartenders or the cocktail waittresses or servers, every experience I've had at this bar has been impeccable.

The food is good for pub food, and there are some light and healthy options on the menu as well.

As far as value goes, you can't beat this place. Nearly all beers are only $4 per IMPERIAL pint, which is one hell of a bargain for NYC. (1,045 characters)

One of my favorite places in the city. Great quality and selection both on tap and bottle. Food is basic pub fare(burgers, wing sect.) but is actually quite decent. Beer menu displayed digitally at bar. Cool old school bar feel. There are tvs for sports and a pinball machine. The crowd is cool and low key.( no frat boys) Spacious bar with two rooms, a long bar, plenty of tables and a patio in the back. The staff is friendly. Great place. (441 characters)

Service is really great. Ber selection was impressive. Burgers were very good. I would go back without hesitation. Maine Lunch, Bell's Hopslam on tap, among many other notables. (177 characters)

Some of the taps are too warm. Had to go with a bottle to share last time.
What are we, in England? (100 characters)
