About

Fraunces Tavern Restaurant, is one of the city's most historic landmarks in the downtown Financial District. Fraunces Tavern Restaurant offers a large range of small batch and specialty beers, serving traditional American food. The building holds eight different rooms each offering unique public and private dining experiences. Invite friends to sit around the warm fire in the Dingle Whiskey Bar or hold a formal dinner under the crystal chandeliers in the Washington Room. If you're looking for something more informal, step into The Hideout off of the Water Street entrance to watch TV and meet friends for happy hour. And don't forget to make your way upstairs to the Bourbon Lounge to relax in large leather sofas and enjoy food and beverages from the bar. If you're a history buff, visit the Bissell room where you can't miss the beautiful mural painting done in 1717, depicting downtown New York City.

Given that it is a PANDEMIC and the world is upside down, the visit to Fraunces Tavern was a wonderful treat. Salute to you for service, great food and history!

One of my favorite spots, especially on the weekends when there is live entertainment. The service, food and drinks are always reliable. The fish and chips, burgers and steak frites are all amazing. The brick chicken is a favorite. Be sure to sit in the tavern area for a more fun vibe versus the dining room.

Just an awesome vibe, a cozy tavern with great live music, surprisingly exceptional food, great cocktails and an extensive beer list. All at a reasonable price?! I didn’t think it was possible.

This was my first time and it was Thanksgiving.
Appetizers were terrific.
Turkey was moist and tender.
One of the best turkey meals I've had.
Sides were very tasty.
Service was excellent.

We loved it so much on Saturday, we went back on Sunday as we were heading back out of town. They remembered who we were and we felt special. It was a great experience the first time and an even better experience the 2nd time!

Beautiful ambiance, great food. We had the grilled cheese and tomato soup and fish and chips and both were delicious. My mom had the mulled wine and loved it! It was a wonderful birthday lunch! We went to the museum after which was great too! Definitely recommend and we will definitely be returning.

I went for a lunch on really nice day this week. Didn't get much sun - I'd recommend sitting on the sidewalk and not the street, since those tables are covered. We had mulled wine to warm up and really enjoyed that. My friend ordered the beet salad and loved that. She was hoping for some bread with it but strangely, the waiter said they didn't have any bread. Meanwhile, I ordered the tomato bisque and a cheese (with Havarti and another cheese) sandwich. The bisque was way too sweet, a common problem with tomato soups in restaurants. The sandwich had a ton of cheese and was a good complement for the soup.

Now is a great time to visit Fraunces Tavern. I've been trying to get in here for years--it was always jam-packed. In our new pandemic world, it was quiet, tables were far apart, servers wore masks, and I felt comfortable and safe.

Good basic fare, but I was somewhat surprised they had no ranch dressing for chicken wings and charged extra for a basic substitute salad dressing.

The service was pretty bad...we ordered a giant pretzel which was pretty good, but after that it took over 30 minutes for someone to come and get our dinner order. They also had a loud band...they weren’t terrible, but sitting right next to the speaker means me and my guest couldn’t talk to each other.
