Went to the Heartland Brewery in Times Square last Friday night. I was with a group of friends and we were scoping out a place to pre-game before going to a concert at the Best Buy Theater (formerly the Nokia Theater).
Before entering, one must take in the bustle and intensity of Times Square, especially during my visit which was in the early evening on a Friday night. The energy in the heart of Times Square is awesome. Heartland was fairly crowded when we arrived, but could have been worse considering the circumstances. Most of the people there seemed to be the after work crowd and tourists, to be expected for the location.
A long bar runs down the left side and curls around with an ample amount of bartenders ready to take your order. There is a huge open area to the right with a ton of tables for dining. We stayed in the open bar area. Atmosphere was pretty chill, dim lighting, breweriana decorations and dark wood.
Beers were solid. I started off with the Smiling Pumpkin Ale, which had some subtle ginger and nutmeg flavors. I also had their Oatmeal Stout (Farmer Jon's Oatmeal Stout) and their IPA (Indiana Pale Ale). All beers were fresh and tasty. Reasonable prices too.

Visited this brewpub at noon on a Friday, during a little family trip to the City. Nice atmosphere...upscale, clean, and attractive. We didn't have to wait for a table, and the service was prompt, friendly, and attentive. The beer was average. I had a red lager, which was clean and flavorful. The stout was disappointing. Food was pricy, but reasonable for City standards. It was average pub fare, and not spectacular.

Not as crowded and noisy as the union square location. Was able to get seated right away in a nice private booth. Waiter was prompt and courteous. He was quick to bring us our beers and take our food order. Tex mex nachos were very good. Only complaint is they could have had more cheese. But no big deal. Had the Indiana pale ale and the seasonal Not Tonight Honey porter. Both were delicious.

Went here for dinner before a show. Made reservations ahead of time so we did not have to wait. Large open room with breweriania on the walls. Service was slow and kept taken food to wrong tables. Beer selection was a wide range of styles. I had a flight od their stuff always on. Beer was ok, the stout and red lager were the best. The light lager was un drinkable and eberything else was bland.
Food was mostly steaks and burgers. My and my wife both got steaks. Mine was over cooked and just generally disappointing.
As far as cost, it was about average for Nyc, but with the other dings on food and quality, it is over expensive. Will not return.
