Time Out says

A stone's throw from its 19th-century namesake, Castle Clinton—America's first beer garden—the folks behind Watermark Bar honor the storied nabe with a 4,000-square-foot Battery Park beer hall of their own. At the marble bar, 20 taps rotate selections of hard-to-find German and domestic brews, available in pints, half pints or third pints. A flux capacitor behind the bar controls the carbonation and temperature of each tap, ensuring that pints are served at an optimal 34 degrees. Pub grub includes 10 different types of burgers, a sweet-and-salty donut grilled cheese, and classic bar bites like waffle fries and Bavarian-style soft pretzels.

This place has a great beer selection and a great go to spot to catch a game.  The burgers are on point and it's a nice complement to their Seaport location, which has some great people watching outdoor seating for the summer.

Super crowded, but we're able to seat our party of 2 in about 20 mins. We split the bacon, egg and cheese burger and the soft pretzel. The pretzel was disappointing. The cheese sauce was like movie theater nacho cheese and the pretzel wasn't salty enough. Not what I was expecting. Burger was good, but not amazing. Loud place but fun vibe. Ping pong and games upstairs.

Traditional , no-frills, beer hall with both indoor and outdoor seating. They've got typical games (oversized Jenga for example) a decent beer list, and a full bar. The thing that makes it stand out is it's impressive list of burgers (which takes up 25% of the menu). Don't skip out on the dessert either, the WTF Waffle towers, are nearly a foot tall. And while a lot of NYC dessert is priced at the $15 mark, this is one of the few that's worth it, based on sheer size. Split it with friends for a sweet treat on a hot day. Service is a little spotty - our waiter left post shift and never alerted us, so we had to hunt down a new server, but otherwise my friend and I were served quickly. 


There is a decent beer list, and it is a good place to go if you want to meet up with a group of friends for something a little more laid back. But be prepared to have to spot out a table, because it can get pretty crazy. 


It is good to meet up with friends and have a couple of beers.  Food is average, the ambiance is what makes it worth coming to (if you are in the area).  Just an FYI the place is packed after work, finding a table might be easy but be prepared to share with another party.  


For a while it had a pretty good rotation of beers, but it's not as exciting now. It does, however, have one of those cool tap systems where you can customize the tap based on the type of beer for the best pour. This place is always packed with financial people. Also, it's held some pretty cool beer events with breweries in the past.
