I am a huge fan of Rattle n Hum. I follow them on twitter just to keep myself updated with what they have every day. I had a fantastic brunch one day. Expecting only their canned beer selection to be included in the all you can drink brunch I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it included the whole beer menu. The constantly changing large selection means that everyone in my group is always happy with their choice. I have been before concerts at the garden and I have been to watch football games. I am always happy with the bar. The food is not amazing but still solid. I can never say no to an order of loaded fries. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. So glad this bar is so close to my train home!

A very fine place to spend a few hours, 40 taps, some locally brewed, like Barrier & Other Half. The rest split between Colorado, California & Belgium, Holland. Great helpful service.

Great selection of 40 or so taps. A few decent bottle offerings hiding behind the bar as well. Lots of east coast/northeast stuff. Helpful and friendly staff. Centrally located to popular areas- Madison square/flatiron/Times Square. Food looked good but I didn't eat. Would definitely go back!

This place feels like an airplane hanger. Huge, yawning, cavernous.

The attendants are very present, but always seem to be in a bad, bad mood. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that the place is perpetually crowded by loud and obnoxious professionals loosening their ties and getting loaded.

Their beer list has some gems, and infrequently gets exciting local stuff (like Grimm, which is a rarity even amongst craft beer bars here) but for the most part it's more common craft.

I finally made it out to the famous Rattle n Hum. Overall I'd say that you can't go wrong with their impressive beer selection. I would definetely come back here to try more great beers. The staff is friendly enough, although I didn't really talk to any of them or get beer suggestions. The vibe is merely o.k. It is like a cross between a sports bar, fraternity bar, and craft beer scene. The decor is not particularly nice, but hey, I'm not a particularly fancy guy. Yet, the fact that it is not an over the top obnoxious frat house and meathead sports bar, and, the fact that the selection is so great, it will keep me coming back.
