Inspection Grade ""A"" is not real!!!!!

I have been going to lunch here at least 3 times a month for the past few months. While waiting outside for friends to finish up I noticed the ""A"" rating in the window. Only what I also noticed was a ""Grade Pending"" paper conviently on the window floor. When I got back to my office I looked up the restaurant and found out that neither grade was real!! The place has a ""B"" rating with 17 violations including Live Roaches PRESENT! Stay away!
I actually called to complain and the manager said ""Sir, do me a favor and keep this to yourself and just don't come back""...amazing customer service!

Old New York in Union Square

At first it wasn't encouraging. We went upstairs to try to find a table, and there were a couple booths free. I call the crew up and a very severe looking waitress (the place must be 100 years old, and she was probably there for the opening), says WE'RE CLOSED UP HERE and flips the OPEN sign to the CLOSED side. So, down the stairs we go. Another severe-looking waitress seats us in the back and moves some furniture to accommodate us. Then things get better. The bar food is standard, clam strips instead of calamari, but from the burgers to the buffalo wings, everything else is the same as anywhere. Gil says the burgers were excellent. The beer list was decent. They serve pitchers of all the tap beer, EXCEPT Guinness for some reason. The bar itself is beautiful. Very old New York from the pictures and letters on the wall to the massive wood bar and tables. The atmosphere is not super friendly, but if you byog (bring your own group), you'll enjoy the place for the pure old New York feel. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers

Old Time Saloon

Wish more places were still around like this. Great burgers. Awesome Hotdogs. Cold Beer.

Was just in there last week for our annual Holiday pub crawl of old bars. Like the year before, the crawl stopped at the Old Town b/c there's not much motivation to leave there. Place looks great around Christmas. keep it old, don't change a thing.

Great Bar

Cold draft, good burger, warm atmosphere. What else do you need?

Anyone who doesn't get the Old Town, just doesn't get it. Some people get it, some people never will. I'm glad most of the people in Old Town get it.

come for the burgers, stay for the politics

everything that is awesome about Flatiron encapsulated in one fine drinking establishment. Took my wife here early in our courtship.

Why are they empty-a few reasons

I have noticed on a few visits to New York that the Old Town Bar is not as busy as the bars that are in the same area. Heres why:
Poor Service-Bartenders who could care less if you were there
Dirty Place-I love the fact that it is historic, but clean the place up for Gods sake-the mirrors are disgusting
Insulting-a sign is posted on the mirror behind the bar telling guests because they buy a drink it does not give them the right to be a bore. The sign I assume is supposed to be funny as it refers to the Boer war, but it is just insulting
The Prices-where do they get off charging the prices for beer they do?

A comfortable place that makes anyone feel at home in New York.

When you walk in, there is a warm glow & chatter at the bar that engulfs you. You'll meet people from all walks of life at the old town. It's a hundred year old meltingpot of what made New York so great. An unprentious place where anyone to can bond with their neighbot at the bar over a pint & burger.

I like Saturday & Sunday afternoon when the sun pours in the glass front doors & you can grab a pint & burger & read the newspaper without the crowds. Start a conversation with the barman if you can, if anything you learn more from an old barman in new york than you can learn in any newspaper.
