My friend won a free happy hour there and we had the best time.. you really can't beat $1 beers and $2 mixed drinks! The bartenders were really friendly and fun, I even got a free shot (even with the already sick deals) Definitely didn't think I'd find such a fun place with really good prices on the Upper East Side. I'll def be back there soon!

After living on the UES for about 3 years now I have become a fan of Mad River. Every time we stop in, there is always something going on. There were great specials and the music was just what we want to hear. Recently we just had dinner there and the food was awesome i def. recommend the burger with the waffle fries!

Mad River is a decent bar, not in an ideal location (on 1st avenue). The food there is ok but not anything special. They do have specials and live music, though, so that's fun

Although it can be fratastic at times, Mad River has always been a great bar for my friends & I. We like going during the Wisconsin games (they serve Spotted Cow, cheese curds & brats) and it's a really fun vibe. Outside of Badger games, we've watched plenty of other sports there to enjoy their great bar food & drinks. Staff and bartenders are very friendly.

Ok I visit NYC only once a year for the NFL draft with friends and we always go to M-R! Established a great rapport with some people who work here and basically enjoyed the hell out of every night we have ever gone there! No rip offs, yet your right there in NYC with some great people for fun! I love this place and will always go back! Music, drink prices, location etc. by far one of my favorite places to go!

You like to dance, listen to good music, see girls, or just chill up front? Then you can do it all here, trust me! I'm a former jock and business man, "Thumbs up to Mad River"!

Ok so I went in last night to meet up with some of my girlfriends for a drink... ended up staying for pretty much the whole night! I am just happy I was able to get out of bed this morning. I had a great time, the DJ was really good kept the crowd going all night and it was only a Thursday! The bartenders were really nice and not stuck up like most other places. Thanks Kenny! If you havent been there yet you must check it out! This will definitely be a weekly deal for me. See you all there!

Unless you're a regular at this place, I would never recommend anyone ever I care about to go to this bar. My friends and I went to this bar for the fist time last week. From the beginning, it seemed shady. First of all the bouncers at the door tried to make it seem like it was the place to be that night by trying to get us to give him money to get in (this place has no cover). He at first refused one of my guy friends in for no reason and made it apparent that he wanted money. When we eventually got in we went to the bar to get drinks...the bar was ok...drinks were alright, nothing worth talking about. By the end of the night a short guy with glasses started trouble with one of my friends because his girlfriend was dancing with my friend. His pride was obviously hurt and he told the bouncers a bs story about my friends starting trouble. Because this loser was a local and a regular the bouncers believed him and kicked my friends out. **Unless you want to see girls dancing barefoot on a nasty floor or have annoying pigs trying to talk on you the whole night. Take your money and party elsewhere.

We went here as a group to meet another group of friends, who were already inside and drinking for hours already, on St. Patrick's Day. We expected it to be crowded given the fact it was St. Patrick's Day and this is your typical frat-boy type bar with young just-out-of-college age guys acting like drunk idiots so I'm not going to complain about the crowding (which was any bar on that day). I'm not even going to complain about the fact that I had to pay $6 for a lousy CAN of Bud Light. What I do feel the need to comment on is the over-zealous bouncer who worked the upstairs room/door and the manner in which he treats/acts/speaks towards the bars patrons. My roomate was patiently waiting on line for the ladies room (at least 15 minutes). She was still patient even when the bouncer allowed 2 girls who supposedly work there (but who were not working on this day) cut the line in front of her. She was still patiently waiting (and was the next person in line to use the bathroom) when the bouncer brought a 70 year old lady from the STREET up to use the bathroom and brings her to the front to cut the line. However, it was at this point the bouncer chose to berate my roomate for absolutely no reason and begins SCREAMING at her, calling her drunk (she had had TWO BEERS and was NOT drunk) and stupid and telling her she needs to shut up and stop acting out of control, etc. to the point where he had my roomate in tears and hysterical. Maybe he mis-took the other girls in line who were yelling and making a scene for my roomate who hadn't said a word. I don't know. But what I do know is that I will NEVER return to this bar again after witnessing this. I (nor any of my friends) have ever been treated/spoken to in such a manner as we are not usually "those girls" or "that group" who causes scenes by getting wasted. We have had good times at this bar in the past but this altercation has left us with such a bad taste in our mouth I can't even recommend this bar to others.

Went for wings on a Saturday afternoon. The wings were 10 cents which is a bargain for NYC bars. However the wings should have been called "winglets" due to their miniature size. After the wings an unexpected dessert presented itself on the bar. Desert being a C OCKROA CH. The occupant vertically crawled up the bar on my arm then ran around on the bar like ratts in west village taco bell. The bartender came over and called for backup. He disposed of the creature and she simply wiped off the bar and acted casual. No apology + no reduction in bill = NO RETURN TO THIS BAR.

While this is not the most exciting place to be, it is definitely a good place to have a few drinks and enjoy with friends. It sure gets packed. i went to see a live band play and sure had fun. Like I said, nothing exciting except just another bar uptown NY. Friendly staff and ok drinks.

This bar draws predominately a mid to late 20's frat boy/sorority type crowd and gets packed on Saturday Nights when they have a DJ spinning. Even with the large crowd, the bar is big enough to where you are not packed in like a sardine. There is a front bar and a smaller back bar and there are plenty of TV's located throughout. Good place to make your last stop on a weekend night.

thats has to be the word to explain this whole bar, the bartenders were fun drinking with the customers, the music and the dj was great. The drinks aren't over-priced. You can chill towards the front at the bar and talk, or you can dance in the back. I crowd was full of layed-back city people just having a good time. I would def go back.

I love going to Mad River b/c you never know what you're going to get. Last night was their 8 Year Anniversary. I walked in a saw a "little person" dancing on the bar dressed as an "umpalumpa"!!! Not to mention, everything was FREE for 2 hours!! Nothing wrong with a little customer appreciation. I've been to Mad River during the week and it is a great chill scene with ridiculously cheap drinks and the food is great. The weekends are legendary for going out with the girls and dancing with the guys. $1 drinks on Friday night with great looking bartenders, what more could you ask for???

Mad River is the place to hang out with the girls on Sunday nights- fairly quiet after 9pm and almost empty after 10pm if there's no football game, etc.
Great bartender attention and service Saturday mornings and Sundays- music can be changed at your request. Overall, a lovely time.

This bar isn't bad. Strong drinks, friendly crowd, good mix of music. Just don't check your coat! Line was ridiculously long and hardly moving at all. You should never have to wait forty five minutes to get your coat from a bar's coat check. Seriously. (And it's not even free!)

This is another cheesy upper east side bar in the mold of tin lizzy. There is a dance floor which can get pretty crowded late at night. The drinks are reasonably priced. It's a frat type crowd with a lot of bridge and tunnel people

Seriously, when i read that last review, im POSITIVE they are talking about the wrong place. Its the EXACT OPPOSITE! Drinks are cheap! Easy to get to the bar! Bartenders are hilarious AND attentive! Murphy the DJ is so MONEY that we used him for a private party! The dancing is fantastic and the crowd is just there to have a good time. Gotta love a place where you go up and order a shot and the bartender makes sure to do one with you! Seriously, go down there and check it out. Theres never a cover and is a guaranteed good time. -AJ

$20 all u can drink means nothing if u can't get to the bar. This place suks. You can tell the owners don't care at all about their patrons, just pack em in, and take their money. Music too loud, bartenders hot, but horrendous. Don't waste your time.

if you are looking for a quick, inexpensive bite in a bar atmosphere this is the place to go. The menu is typical bar food with prices that can't be beat. The noise level in the restaurant area is pleasantly low so talking is more than possible. Our server was late so the manager took care of us which was great - the service was not as good when our server showed up....great value - good food -

This place was great until 11, then it filled with pretentious college grads, and all of a sudden you could not move! You definitely couldn't dance (and there were some fine ladies there) because everyone was so packed in. Going to the bathroom was a journey that ended in defeat, seeing as when I got to it, there was not much but toilet paper and water on the floor. If it was less crowded, probably would have been better.

Mad River: Trypical collegiate bar. Typical collegiate crowd, which is fine for a good, cheap and layed back time...but at 11pm, the bouncers come around asking you to take off your baseball cap...even us babes. To add injury to insult, said bouncers demand that you get up off your bum b/c they're taking your barstool away, saying, "Uh, duh, yeah...we become a um, 'classy' bar; after 11pm" Last I checked, 'classy' bars can have barstools and don't require guests to get up off their seats. The bouncers could have made it clear to everyone had they just explained that it was klass with a capital K that they were after. Stupid place, asinine rules. Don't ever go. Oh, and the bartenders got the drinks all wrong, almost every time.

I don't think i've ever had a bad night at Mad River -- always fun and eventful. if you're looking for a fun night of dancing, this is a great bar to go to with a big group of friends. The crowd is great - young, good-looking and always looking for a good time!!

Mad River is dyno-mite. Great crowd if you are 21-35 looking to have a good time, relax, drink a few brews and dance with some hotties. Great place to be b/c the morons that start fights don't show up. The service is excellent, all the bartenders are quick and always are smiling. If you go look for the stud behind the bar, Aidan, he's the man. Hope to see you there sometime soon.

This place plays the music you all love to dance too. There is a great mix of hip-hop, pop and techno. The dance floor gets really crowded and you have to be willing to nudge annoying couples who think they need to take up half the dance floor with there swirls and crap.

This place is fun.

This Place is Awesome. A must experience in NYC. Be warned..you will never experience anything like this place..it ROCKS every night of the week. Try Wednesday Night for example...300 people, dancing, drinking, going off. Take me to the River

I love this place!! I never go home unsatisfied. Jeremy is the best bartender I've ever seen. The way he perks those pecks when he pours just gets me hot!! And, with enough encouragement from the ladies, this hottie bartender will lose his shirt. I highly recommend it!!
