It's true! The people who work there are awesome, I love Judy! It has a great atmosphere, and yummy perfectly cooked barfood & solid beer! And free help- yourself popcorn! They also love animals and have fundraisers there sometimes for the SPCA, how wonderful and fuzzy and gooesy is that?!? And it's true the bathroom smells great! I noticed it the first time I went there and it smells like fruity pebbles, and has every time since!

This is a neighborhood tavern with excellent food and a great selection of beer. The atmosphere is warm and good times are had by all. I have met the most interesting folk here and will travel there whenever possible. The brats and Beamish are wonderful!

I just have to add my voice to the throngs! Sterling Place is a gem. For one thing, you just can't beat their beer selection. They know beer and have somthing for every palate, from swillers (like myself) to true beer efficionados. Their food is likewise outstanding and an obvious source of pride. As a connoiseur of the Buffalo fish fry, I give theirs the highest marks. The fish is always cooked to perfection (an art) and the salads are a delight. There are only a handful of places that know how to do a fish fry right. This is one of them. Besides, John and Judy are hard working, conscientious, sociable people and their values are reflected in the way they run their establishment. Do yourself a favor and get to know this place.

First, and more importantly, the beer...they have the best beer in Buffalo. Granted, they do not have 101 beers on tap, but every beer is very good and they take care to make sure that their taps are maintained weekly (no other bar in Buffalo does this). Secondly, their food is top notch. You will not find better food in any establishment that charges 3 times as much. John's steak is great, his potato salad is fantastic, and his burgers are the greatest thing known to man. I kid you not, it will be THE greatest burger you have ever had. The building and the service are not what you would expect from a place with such great food, but that is part of the charm. John and Judy are always busy, but will always make time to take care of you, make you comfortable, and serve you as best as possible. Fancy decor aside, this is the best spot in Buffalo.

We were in Buffalo for a wedding and got the tip for this place from Pubcrawler. We were not dissappointed. John and Judy were truely gracious hosts and the food was excellent. I had a fresh fish fry that came with homemade cole slaw, potato slad, and macaroni salad. All for $8!

The taps were in full Octoberfest swing with Spaten Munich, Spaten Optimator, Sierra Nvada Celebration, Post Road Pumpkin Ale, local Flying Bison Oatmeal Stout, and a few other imports. I would definitely go back again!

My first visit to Sterling was a drunken one that ended up with me walking home. Thankfully, I went back. It is amazing how a place looks different when you're sober vs. wasted. Door situation confused me (which is easy to do). The owner was tending the bar the first night that I was there. Very friendly and seemed glad that we were there. He was concerned about my "AWOL status." The Great Lakes Porter was superb. Chicken fingers were tasty. Enter the bathroom and go back in time to the 70's. One of the cleanest and best smelling bathrooms that I have been in. When I walked in the second time, I was amazed that they carried a full line of really good beers. Nice import and craft selection. I tried the Flying Bison Oatmeal Stout. Previous experiances with FB have been lackluster. I truly enjoyed this beer. Jukebox has Queen and 80's. One can be comfortably wasted without visiting the ATM again. I used to only go to two bars in Buffalo on a regular basis: Alternative and Colter Bay. Now I have added Sterling to my A list. I am glad that we deceided to take a chance and stop by. The place has always looked kindof lonely. When I remarked that I went there, people responded that they didn't know if anybody went there. This means that more people need to: go to Sterling, support the bar, and spread the word. From my understanding, the owner drives to Clevland to pick up the Great Lakes Porter and Pale Ale. Now that's dedication.

"It's all about the beer." Lots of places say this, but few mean it like the Sterling Place. Twelve taps, and ten items on the menu, a relatively small offering. But The owners, John and Judy, make the place friendly, they know their customers and are very friendly to new ones, and they are passionate about their beer. It's always a good sign when you spot an Anchor neon in a bar; Fritz doesn't dole them out to just anyone. Sterling has the only Anchor Porter neon I've seen on the east coast. Dedicated. I stopped short on an Awesome overall rating only because while the personal atmosphere is excellent, the Sterling isn't much to look at. I'd like different lighting, maybe a bit of character. They're doing this on a shoestring, so maybe that will come. Regardless, this will be a regular stop when I go to Buffalo.
