Best bar I went to in NYC

Been to NYC twice on holiday 2001 and 2003 and found this bar first time I was here.
People are really friendly bar staff were fantastic and food was divine.
Prices were very reasonable
Will Defiantly go back if I am ever in NYC again and would recommend this bar to anyone visiting.

Not your regular dive bar

Moved into the neighborhood and was looking for a local place I could call home. This place is it. Great friendly service and awesome selection of beer and liquor. The food is delicious and pretty cheap. Even the breakfast food is great, especially with a hangover.

I hope this place doesn't get lost in the overload of places on the UWS, it's too good. It's also one of the only places where it feels okay to throw back a few shots if your having one of those kind of nights.

Beers, and a fish tank

I get it: Diver Bar is not actually a dive bar in the sense that tipplers know it. But the maritime theme is lost on me; the only intimations of maritime theme include a dirty fish tank, a diving mask and wall-mounted mermaid.
No matter, Dive Bar is a relatively unpretentious establishment with respectable bar food and a very impressive international beer list. The beers on tap change fairly often, so stay on your toes. Plus, the extra-friendly bartenders don?t hurt. But be sure to snag one of the big booths with some friends, or you?ll have to hunker in a corner by the oddly large tables in the back.

Great little dive with a huge character appeal

I recently was a Dive Bar to kill time before meeting some friends and to check out some Sunday football. This is really my kind of place...something off the beat'n path. It's a tiny joint with a large bar, a pool table like think with stools and a few booths around the edge. The menu was definity bar food, but man did it all sound amazing....seafood, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, salads and amazing breakfast items. I nibbled on some chicken fingers and I must say they were the best I have ever had. Washed them down with a few bud lights and saw the Jet's get spanked, I couldn't ask for a better afternoon. Defs worth making the trip up town for a nice escape from the bars you see in midtown and below.

Pretty awful

Fish and chips consisted of batter with some grey gunk inside, with two baked potatoes and some past-the-point-of sour tartar sauce; appetizers arrived after the main course and while a touch more palatable were swimming in grease. Beer was watered down and off.

Service was polite but incompetent.

If you're going to eat here, stick to the chips and salsa; if you?re going to have a drink stick to something in a bottle as they don't know how to keep their draft beer.

A packet of Tums might be a good option for dessert.

Feel at home

I've been to Dive several times and will keep coming back. It's a friendly atmosphere, , a touch more elegant than a ""dive"" and inexpensive. Perfect for meeting friends. The bartenders are really great!

Best Local Hangout

I feel really comfortable when I'm there; I can be there by myself or with my friends. The sports on the TV is great and the food is not your typical bar food. I always have had a great experience there and will continue to go in the future. I wondered why it was called the Dive Bar and the answer is that the theme is Scuba Diving. Duh! I should have known that one. It was so obvious with the decor.

NOT A DIVE BAR!!!

For anyone who has ever been to a real dive bar... THIS IS NOT IT!! If you want a real dive, go to Rudy's or Yogi's or 1 of the 100 other real dives in the city. This place is more like an independently owned Applebee's. Can't be a dive bar if families go there for dinner on a friday night. Come on.

Excellent beer suggestion, decent food

If you are interested in trying new beers, you definately should visit the Dive bar. From my personal tastes, the waiter suggested Blanche De Bruxelles, which I thought was excellent and I have enjoyed other Belgium whites since then. Prices and portions were reasonable. The food was good as well. It was a Friday night and busy, but it wasn't too crowded where I didn't enjoy myself.
