I always want to find the up-side -- took me awhile but I did.... it is very well located to Penn Station so if there is commuting involved can work.

Great find for pre concert drinks and snacks. Amazing food and drinks served by a cool staff. Check out bourbon selection and great vegetarian options too. Thanks!

Our experience was really great, everyone who works there is so nice. The beer selection is on point. The tacos were a measly in terms of portion size and the person who got them had to get more food somewhere else after. The burger was really good though!

Really a fantastic weekday lunch destination. Great food and service. I’m told it gets packed at night so I was glad to experience it when not too many people were there.

Outstanding beer selection. The “small plates” were actually large portions. Food was delicious.

Not great and we waited an age for our lunch. When it arrived it was average. Not worth the wait. The sodas were flat too.

Our server was pretty grumpy. She sometimes didn't even reply to us. That being said, the food was really great. The wings were crispy, the burger delicious, and the fries were crispy AND fluffy. The draft list was extensive and organized by style, which I liked. It was wicked crowded and we had to maneuver around people. The food and beer was worth it.

Haymaker Bar & Kitchen is loud and wall to wall people. We made our reservation for 3 was placed all the way in the back with barely enough room for two, let alone 3 of which two were tall women. We asked to be seated at a 4 top, but was told they were all reserved-- no one was seated for the two hours we sat crammed into our little section. Asked for the dessert menu and was told they didn't have dessert. Not a place for business meetings or catch ups-- drinking and shouting only. Great for happy hour. I took off stars because of the obscene noise level, they didn't have dessert and the lousy seating--

We really enjoyed our drinks and dinner. We were there early and the bar tender took our first drink order and then we didn't see her again and asked the waiter in our section and he took over our table and felt so bad that he had not attended to us and he was very attentive the rest of the time we were there.

Food was very good but the dinner menu is limited. Service was timely and the drinks were well made. I had the hanger steak and my wife the chicken. Both had excellent flavor and well prepared.

The bar was very noisy. Our party had asked if we could be moved to a quieter area and at first request we were told that nothing was available. On a second request we were jammed into a a small table in the back room. We asked for the larger table and once again the hostess denied our request. We should have left. The larger more comfortable table never got seated. In fact by the end of our meal we were the only people on the back room laughing at ourselves crunched into a corner. There was no reason to be treated so poorly.

Tight seating. Music was a low good volume. But hard to have a conversation with people sitting too close to us. Service was good and attentive.

It was very crowded as you'd expect during happy hour. Preblem was they were having a "beer event" so only had 1 beer choice as part of happy hour - rather odd. The burger was good, as was the beer. Tables are cramped. I'd go back off hours.

Stopped in for food and beer before a Rangers game. The burgers were excellent and there was a really nice selection of beer. This was a really nice find in the MSG/Penn Station area.

We enjoyed our meal. We got there at the tail end of the football watching crowd so it was a little noisy. Service and meal was excellent. Would highly recommend if you are in the area.

The perfect spot for dinner before a show at The Garden. A compact but excellent menu, complemented by delightful cocktails and an extensive beer and wine selection. Service was friendly and well paced.

The food was great! It is such a cute place and I would definitely go again. The only issue I found was that they had one server. Only one. So, if you needed something, he was busy helping the 25 other tables. Which, is understandable, he can't be in twenty five places at once.

Husband and I have had dinner and/or drinks at Haymaker a bunch of times, and every time we can’t get over how great the food and service is. I came across Haymaker when I was trapped in NYC because of train delays and have kept returning ever since. My family even hosted my post NYC marathon meal there - it is that good. The most recent dinner we had was great. We could not get over how good the popcorn hot chicken was. Waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. Feels like home. :)
