Visited May 2012.

I think the most memorably aspect of this place is the fact that all the beers cost exactly the same amount ($5) but they adjust the serving size accordingly. Pretty neat idea. I like how they have a large selection and many of the taps are from semi-local breweries. I had a glass of the Industrial IPA from Kelso Brewing and a few other randoms selections.

The service was friendly but they donít come to the tables. You have to go to the bar to order, which was a novel concept I suppose. Maybe thatís how they keep costs down, by hiring less people. Over all the place is pretty cool and Iíd stop in again, if for no other reason than to try all the stuff that I havenít tried before.

Great bar. Serves all American craft beer at $5.00 a pop. (Sizing will vary.) Great selection. Bar is laid out well. The food was delicious. Nice bartenders. I will return for sure.

Last visit on 29/02/12. a few previous to this since it opened. Smallish single roomed bar. 20 beers on tap, good stuff, no crap. Have never looked at the bottle menu tbh as have tended to pop by for an hour at a time and always enough to interest me on tap! Always pretty busy and if you want to sit down you often end up sharing with others. Bit of a DFH thang going down on my last visit, WWS and others on the go. Cheap for Manhattan but smaller pours than other venues. Happy hour $5 beers is 4.20pm - 5.20pm. Always a place I go back to on NYC visits if only for an hour or so.

I really like this place. Brightly lit during the day with a fairly newish divey decor, it darkens up nicely as the sun falls. Accented (somewhat oddly) with a canoe hanging from the ceiling, it certainly has its beery bona-fides in order. Nothing but US craft beer and nothing is over five bucks. Tough to find a better deal on craft beer in the city. The taps rotate out pretty quickly as well, so you always get fresh product.

Visited late night on a Thursday. Cool looking bar on a corner in Hellís Kitchen. Dominant feature inside is the tap list, which is beamed out of two LCD tvís above the bar. 21 beers on, one of which was cask. Hard rock was playing, crowd seemed pretty local, everyone having a good time drinking good beers. I did like the $6 per beer concept, with either shaker pint or 8 oz glass depending on what you ordered. Service was attentive. I would hit this spot again if I am ever nearby.

Nice small corner bar with tons of wood and few tables and barrels for patrons to socialize. Nice tap selection which is all $5 whether it be 16 or 8 oz servings. Had an oyster sandwich which was solid. All of their beers are listed on 2 television screens which I initially thought was a little out of place, but in hind sight it makes the tap list very easy to read versus trying to decipher someones handwriting on a chalk board. Really liked this place.

liked the atmosphere, decent draft selection, little suprised about the saranac & mckenzies cider on tap. Food sounded good, calamari was ok. draft glasses were 13 or 8oz. Maine Beer MO was great & Perennial Peach Berliner Weiss was nice. Sublimely self righteous on cask. $9 for a shot of baileys seemed quite steep for our non beer drinkers. I did like it here and will definately be back

Finally managed to make it here and Iím glad I did. They donít open until 3 most days which was what had kept me away for so long. Not living in NYC I often take a train down for beer events that start at somewhere between 3-5 and if I get down to the city a few hours early I like to find somewhere else to go grab a pint or two ahead of time. Managed to come down for something that started a bit later, but still came down early enough to come over to the Pony. I love the simplicity of their beer lists. Everything is $5 and comes in one of two sizes depending on the ABV/rarity of the keg. A welcome change from some of the other beer destinations not too far away who are up to charging $1/oz for a lot of things (granted they may be a bit rarer and harder to come by than most of the list at Pony, but when youíre looking for a place to spend an afternoon drinking a few pints and donít care about necessarily getting the absolute rarest things, this is a good thing). With a list of 20 beers on tap and 2 casks, I still found 5 things that were new for me so I was happy about that. No flights but as others have said theyíll happily pour you a taste of something. Had a bite to eat here as well. A.L.T. - Avocado, lettuce, tomato. Delicious. Could have eaten a couple more of these and not because the sandwich wasnít filling enough (it was), but it was just that tasty. Horseradish pickles as well. Iím already trying to figure out when I can sneak back here.

Nice cozy little beer bar. Crowd is pretty much the 21-30 types. I dig the digital beer board that stays current, and they post on beermenus. I stopped in on a Sunday when the drafts were $5. Very crowded and service was a little spotty. Not sure how three bartenders can miss someone in such small confines. Selection is draft only, and very nice. Diverse with some regionals. I do have a few beefs though. They require a $20 minimum to use a credit card. For starters, that is a illegal and a violation of the merchant agreement. Just build the stupid transaction fee into your beer prices. Two, when I closed out, I was under the $20, but they charged my card. Why,? So I could be forced to give them a $5 tip for mediocre service (when I was going to do a buck per beer). I could have raised a stink, but I didnít. But itís not an honest business practice. I should know,, I accept credit cards with my business. But I am learning cash is King in NYC

Pleasently surprised when I stopped in. A well kept long bar in a skinny place. Nice with windows open in the summer. While not huge, selection is nice with a good number of locals on tap. Staff was quite friendly and knowledgeable.
