Went with a group from my office to have drinks at the upstairs bar. We were there probably 3 hours, drinking and eating appetizers. The service was decent, drinks came fast, good football game on, etc. There was 8 of us, at most, there at one time. When we got the tab, we put it on one credit card, it was $646, we tipped the bartender $125 on the card, and another $20 in cash. She took this, and never told us that we had already been charged 18% gratuity on the check. So she got a total of $236 for a tip. We should have known to look, being a large group - but how rude and tacky could a place be?! \r
My company just moved onto the block from 57th St, and we go out a lot as big groups and for corporate events. Needless to say we won't be going there again.
Pros: Lots of TV's, good for sports fans.
Cons: Tourist Trap. Add Gratuity to bills and don't tell people. Stairs.
