A friend of mine lives not too far from The Jeffrey and keeps telling me about all the good beer on tap there, so I stopped by on a Thursday evening at around 5pm.

It is a cool space, in an unlikely location right across from the Queensboro Bridge (no views, though). This is the Upper East Side but the shitty part of it, so it's nice to have a good beer bar around. Very gastropubby inside: warmth, brick, wood, dim lights. A very narrow hallway behind the bar opens into a limited dining area out back, which is also connected to the cocktail bar on the other side. I like the architecture/layout here.

30 taps between front and back, good stuff for sure. They had a Captain Lawrence event so a lot of the taps were from there, including Frost Bite, Smoke from the Oak, Golden Delicious. Obscure brews from here and over the pond such as Hof Ten Dormal, Beer Geek Bacon, Schlenkerla Eiche, Del Ducato Baciani, Voodoo Gran Met...

Very expensive, great bartender with lovely smile and beer knowledge. This place is good. So much better than Alewife!

Awesome craft beer spot in the shadow of the queensboro bridge. 30 drafts and a bunch of cans. Lots of cool draft options as a result of mini-tap takeovers they do periodically. Good variety of beers, knowledgable and friendly staff, and a great looking menu (I didn't eat). A NYC must-stop for the serious BeerAdvocate or enthusiast

Cool vibe, great selection, about eight other half beers on tap. The bartender was nice but three times the guy asked what beer I wanted and forgot to pour it. If it happened once i would just laugh it off but it kept happening and got pretty frustrating.

I saw a beer just came in. I called in the evening to confirm. They confirmed. I said I was coming for lunch the next day and asked if they would have some. They confirmed. It's far away. I went there for lunch. They could not serve the beer they confirmed the night before. Waitress said "the line was broken."

Very sloppy and dishonest.

Jeffrey's was our first stop while in the city and it was a great start. We arrived in the late afternoon, it wasn't crowded and the bartender was very accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable and Irish. The bar area in the front where we sat is a little tight but adequate. There is more space in the back and outside, but I would consider it not too large. We had a very nice pannini and unique and delicious beet pickled deviled eggs (6 halves). There were about 20 or so beers on tap plus bottles. Many were unknown to us, with a number of New York breweries as well as nationwide breweries. We liked the ambience and planned on returning. So the next night was stopped by, but it was so crowded we could hardly get in the door, so sadly we left. This place is worth the effort, but I suggest getting there early.
