Stopped for dinner Wednesday night after a full day at Bethpage Black for a practice round. Atmosphere was sort of cheap, concrete floor with plain round tables in the back half, a crowded long bar with more tables in the front half. Very loud, no doubt in part due to the hard floors and walls. Had to almost yell to talk to my brother at our table; I hate that.
Beer selection was certainly better, much better than average with about 20-30 drafts and dozens of bottles. That being said, I kind of struggled to find what were to me intersting beers to drink. I had one IPA that I couldn't finish (can't now remember what it was), but had a Stone IPA that was great, along with a couple of other beers. The waitress was friendly and attentive.
We ate 20 wings that were 10 cents each, their special that night, then each had a sandwich. Food was decent, nothing special, but nothing bad. I gather that this is the best beer selection in Farmingdale, and is certainly better than anything near where I live in Mass., so cheers to them for being there.
All in all a decent place to put a few down, nice selection and decent pub food if you can handle the roar of the crowd.

Atmosphere: big, dark, somewhat bleak front and back eating areas - the aesthetics of the layout were not too appealing, but there are plenty of TVs - I'm pretty sure they lined all the walls - providing constant sensory bombardment - great for sports fans; I went on a Thursday night and it had a decent crowd, not packed, able to get a spot at the bar, which was much more appealing than the place as a whole.
Quality: seemed clean and well-maintained, bathroom (men's) was mediocre - better than a typical bar, but you're not gonna mistake them for anything other than a bar bathroom; the bar area itself was clean and well-lit
Service: very nice and friendly bar and wait staff - professional, polite, and friendly - the bartenders provided quick and accurate service, and the wait staff brought out food promptly and checked up no more or less than you'd want - just right.
Selection: nothing to blow you away, but the volume of choices may! You can check their beer menu online - they have a ton of stuff from all over the place - and no BMC beer!
Food: prepared as requested, delivered quickly, good-tasting and all-around good bar eats - went the wings and burger route myself, and I had no complaints.
Value: draft and food prices were average - which is good - bottle prices ran a little high, so I didn't go there. Taken as a whole, out with a few friends for a few drinks and some grub, had a great time and got my money's worth. Recommended.

A - Crowds range form business types for lunch weekdays to the train hopping Happy Hour folks and the college scene at night. It is generally lively. Tv's show the local sports games. Outside patio area in the warm weather.
Q - Beer poured in proper glassware, taps are cleaned regularly, and a well maintained tap list.
Ser - Proper glassware, knowledge of what was poured, and paid attention to my food order. Decent enough.
Sel - 66 taps and bottles. Didn't find anything earth shattering rare, but an exetnsive list tohat should have something for everyone.
F - I had a BBQ chicken wrap lunch special that was tasty, and priced really well.
V - One of the better places to get craft on the cheap. $5 pints for many of the options is a good deal. I'll be back.

I've only been to this outpost of the Croxley family for lunch, but it has always been good and due to a small lunchtime crowd I've always gotten great service. I imagine that this place is a mob scene at 6:30 pm on a Thursay or Friday night with the commuters and college crowds packing it in. The wings and pretzels are outstanding, and there is always a great selection on tap. Last few times I was there the bartender was just as nice to look at as she was at providing service, which was an added plus. For basic bar food, a very good beer list and a laid back attitude, Croxley's has perfected the formula. Prices are reasonable by NY standards and I suggest going for lunch if you can pull it off.

Stopped by with my brother and a buddy the other night before I left to come back to NC. Casual place with outdoor seating but a little loud considering it was only half full. Tried the Deviant Dale's and Great South Bay's Massive IPA. Prices were decent for Long Island. Service was nice but a little slow. Ten cent wings were hot and tasty. I am glad they will be opening up one of these in Smithtown, in theory. This is a good, although fairly generic version of the Croxley's brand, but the location just south of the LIE sets it apart a bit. The selection and atmosphere are superior to nearby Black Forest, who brew their own beer of course. Solid choice any easy drive from most of Long Island.

Really fun place to go with your buddies if you wanna grab a beer and watch a game or somethin. They have pretty awesome wings too and they have 10cent wings monday, tuesday and wednesday which is pretty sick. Not the greatest selection of beer I have ever seen though, Goose Island nightstalker is just about the best I have seen and it was about 22$ which blew my mind. But if your looking to get a good craft beer thats not mind blowing or anything and lookin to go to a place to have fun and hang out then this is the place to go for sure.
