Just a great place. Was in recently on a random Thursday night. Was crowded but not overly so. Service was brisk and polite. Cash only, beer only. $5 for two, order 2 at a time, either light or dark, or 1 of each. Great beer, great atmosphere. You're drinking where Abe Lincoln drank. It's a must if you're nearby. Even if you're not it's worth the trip.

The oldest bar in the whole city. Opened up in 1854. A true Irish ale house. only 2 selections light beer and dark beer. sawdust on the floor and nothing has come off the wall since about 1965. The amount of history that's in this bar and on the walls could rival some small museums.

If this will be your first visit to McSorley's and you actually want to gain something from the experience, do yourself the favor of chasing down Joseph Mitchell's McSORLY'S WONDERFUL SALOON (a collection of non-fiction pieces) and read the title piece. As just one of the tidbits you'll learn from your reading, McSorley's is the oldest saloon in the U. S. of A. -- yes, older than any saloon you may've seen in any (now) ghost town in any Western. One word of caution -- no, two: (1) don't gawk; and (2) keep that smartphone tucked away. McSorley's is not a place for cheap pix -- unless, that is, you think your dead grandmother in her open coffin is an occasion for phone pix. Instead, open your eyes and your ears -- and look and listen. You're about to see and hear some genuine history. Russell

An authentic taste of New York's past, with a little ale on the side. Amazing atmosphere, great ale, good food. A MUST see for anyone traveling to NYC!

Worst bar I visited while in New York. If you don't know and order something other than beer they scoff at you. The asshat with grey hair and "authoritative" grey shirt (his words) will harass you and ask you to move out of his way every time he passes. Even if you just moved from where he asked you to. Needless to say, I chugged my beer and left asap. I would never recommend this place to anyone else.
