  • For seniors, it was only $4, and it was more interesting than I expected. The flag room was excellent, and the paintings of Revolutionary War scenes as well. Of course, the George Washington connectio...  read more »
  • This museum is on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Fraunces Tavern, which still operates as a Bar/Restaurant. (Tip: eat there first, and walk it off upstairs.) Climb the same staircase as George Washington! ...  read more »
  • After eating or drinking at Fraunces Tavern, it's only natural to head upstairs to the Fraunces Tavern Museum. The museum is small, but has several upper-floor rooms worth seeing as they recreate nice...  read more »
  • Food (Shepherd's pie, chicken pot pie, beef stew, and fish and chips) was delicious and service (I believe it was Leanne) was excellent. From their brewery, we tried the Wrassler Stout, Oyster Stout, and Red Ale, all of which were delicious. There is also a whiskey bar (Dingle Whiskey Bar), which has an excellent selection and comfy chairs to sit and relax in by the fireplace! We were there on a Saturday night and it was not crowded at all. Also, there was live music in the next room, which was great as well. There are several dining areas to choose from, each with their own unique decor/atmosphere, from casual to formal. Overall, a really great place!
  • Fraunces Tavern is an underappreciated neighborhood fixture--it has consistently good upscale pub fare. The pulled pork sandwich was terrific, along with the house-made coleslaw and pickles. Steak was cooked to perfection--not overdone. We sat in a back room (one I didn't know existed) where it was nice and quiet. After your meal, take some time to browse the museum upstairs!
  • Feel yourself transported to the end of the war, when George Washington held his farewell dinner with his generals here. A small but charming collection of Revolutionary War artifacts in a classic tavern, if you're a history buff, this will be up your alley.
  • Decent beer selection and atmosphere was cool. Bartender was very rude and inconvenienced to do his job and the place wasn't even packed at 11pm on a Saturday night.
  • Food was great, lighting is low. Great place for a first date, lol. We were sat under a speaker for the music and it was kinda loud but not to the point I couldn't hear myself think. The history of the place was neat. Recommended!
