This is a great pure American beer bar with no bottles and ~20 all American tap with 14 oz or 8 oz pours for $5, a fantastic deal in NYC. Itís classic simple American in style and ambiance...in other words very comfortable and familiar. Itís very small and gets crowded in waves so drinks can be hard to get though the bartenders are pretty fast. The vibe is kind of well, collegiate and Manhattan midtown.. Other than the annoyingly garrish giant flat panels they use for their tap list this is about as good a combo of quality, comfort, and value you will find in a beer bar as you will find in Manhattan.

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.

Quite small pub with tv-screens showing you what beers are available. 20 taps and 2 casks. Very good prices, I paid 4 dollars for a pint on a late Saturday afternoon. Cozy place that I will visit again.

God, I love this place. Always a great selection and constantly changing. A celebration of American craft brew, and the hardest working bartenders in New York.

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 place with webupdated tap menu. Staff is fast and knowledgeable. Unfortunately they dont do flights, but they do free samples of 5 cl, so if you do like I did and order a beer and 2 freebies, it pretty much works out like flights. All beers are same price at $5 and will come in either 8fl.oz glasses or 14 fl.oz. glasses. Didnt try their food.

Modern bar with lots of interesting beers on tap. The service was pleasant and even though we arrived just after opening, they were ready to serve us the best way. Slightly atypical bar which is certainly worth a visit.

picnic benches and a moderate sized bar a lot of wood and small bathrooms. spotty service not rude just busy sometimes understaffed. good food, homemade style sandwiches and chips or coleslaw. about 25 taps with $1 off one hour a day. young new york infused yuppie beer crowd.

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.

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
