ok just a quick address to the guy below...do you realize you are complaining when you paid ONE DOLLAR? like im pretty sure unless a bouncer punched you in the face (assuming you...

The bar was way too crowded with an older trucker looking crowd playing darts and pool. Drinks and food are totally overpriced and the bartenders and waitresses are completely ru...

Never going back again. 6/29/2011

If last night didn't happen...i would have given this spot a 5-star review. I'm sorry to say that I have to move on to another bar as this one will never ever get my business again. Every other time i've been there, the staff is friendly, the bartenders were awesome, the food was great and overall we ALWAYS had a great time. Then last night happened...and I'm not exactly sure why... My friends and i were sitting at the bar calmly--we weren't rowdy and we had always been really good patrons. We always tried to tip well and we're always courteous ladies. Last night, one of the owners threw us out of the bar...FOR NO REASON. Except citing (to my friend's face) that she was a "Scumbag" and that he was "done with her". Aside from this being insulting--it was uncalled for. You see, we had done nothing wrong--which is why this is utterly baffling to me. I'm not sure if the owner was intoxicated (he might have been) but after he says this to her, the bouncer comes over to escort us out. i'm not sure what in the world happened. Honestly we always have a great time. It's really sad to me that this happened as it was insulting, unnecessary and we're STILL confused what we did aside from sit and chat at the bar to one another....and be good paying customers. My friend wanted to speak to the owner outside of the bar to ascertain what in the hell just happened -- he kept repeating he was done with her and threw in a few more "she's a scumbag" comments. Mind you...my friend did NOT EVEN SPEAK TO HIM AT ALL. So how on earth is he calling her a scumbag?!!! He claimed she "treated him like a servant". How does one do that w/o even speaking to the man??? I'm sorry...but if this is how one of the owners behaves, it's not a place i'm going to be going to, nor will i be recommending it at all to my friends. It's sad...especially since this USED to be one of my favorite bars. more

I'll be back! 6/10/2011

I've thrown parties here, went to parties here hung out after work here and had lunch here. The drinks are cold. The food is great and the staff is always friendly. It's a fun place to hang out and a great place to eat. Best french fries in the city. Look it up! more

my home away from home 6/10/2011

ok just a quick address to the guy below...do you realize you are complaining when you paid ONE DOLLAR? like im pretty sure unless a bouncer punched you in the face (assuming you didn't deserve it) you dont get to complain when you out of pocket cost is not even enough to buy you a pack of orbit gum I feel better... moving on, i simply love the place. life may have gotten really busy and i dont go there nearly as much as I used to or as much as Id like to but it still holds a fond place in my heart. Drinks are always poured to perfection and you cant really beat a 2-6 , 2 for 1 happy hour. (At least not anywhere when the crowd is above 19) . Go there enough and you will be treated like family. A must -see if you work/are ever in midtown. Best low-key / not pretentious roof-top in town <3 more

Will NOT Return 6/8/2011

Bought the $1 dollar special off of living social. Its funny because the whole point of teaming up with living social is to promote the restaurant but this experience made me NEVER want to return. The service was extremely poor and slow, water was never refilled, every table was waiting for their food 45min to and hour or more, and worst of all NO ONE was apologetic at all. Its understood that they were busy but at least show some remorse for your hungry customers. I would NOT recommend coming back here. more

Great place - BEST FUNDRAISING BAR IN TOWN! 6/1/2010

I have been to Overlook a few times over the past couple years - mostly for Mizzou alumni games - and have always enjoyed this place. Unpretentious, good food, love the outdoor patio. But where the real gem of this place is in WORKING with Overlook. I recently conducted a fundraiser at this establishment - and I could not have been happier with my entire experience at Overlook. Start to finish. First, I worked directly with the owner to work out all the details. I was ambitious and wanted to do a lot of different tactics to generate money, and he was on board for all of them - even suggesting items for our silent auction that he knew our regulars would bid on and generate more cash for us. Secondly, the entire staff from bartenders to staff managers to DJ to doorman were friendly and accommodating on the actual night of the event itself. If we needed something, they were made themselves available, even though the place was packed. I felt like it was true partnership and I will do ALL my charity work at this place in the future. Thanks Overlook! Pros: outdoor patio, good food, unpretentious, friendly staff more

Friendly and lots of TVs 11/21/2009

ere were more TVs in this place than in my local BEST BUY! Every booth had its own set. Never saw anything like it before.\r Besides the TVs, the bar had a nice 365-Day Xmas decor, with a ceiling full of colored balls. The beer list was fair, with Blue Moon on tap.\r I wouldn't want to be here on a heavy sports night, but on a mild-Tuesday it was peaceful. The food was okay, but nothing special, slightly on the pricey side... but that's Midtown NY. The waitstaff was friendly and efficient. The crowd was mostly 20 to 30 somethings.There's not much more to say. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers. Pros: Friendly and lots of TVs Cons: slightly pricey more

The place was really chill and they played great music as well. A nice la*d back bar in midtown. Def will come back esp for when the weather is warmer as we spied a big outdoor patio area. Pros: happy hour. music more
