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 didn’t. But it’s not an honest business practice. I should know,, I accept credit cards with my business. But I am learning cash is King in NYC

Solid beer bar in midtown / hells kitchen. 20+ taps with two cask. Didn't see a bottle list but not sure you need one. Good variety on tap with rotating options. Food was affordable and overall pretty good. Not too big so gets packed during peak times. Couple TVs playing football on Sunday.

$5.00 beers, albeit small sizes, but just enough. Good time, good food, great beer, and reasonable price.

Not a destination place like Rattle or Blind Tiger, but Pony Bar is an awesome neighborhood pub perfect for hanging out with friends. The beers are always good, 20 taps and 2 casks. Always some local stuff from Chelsea or the Long Island breweries on. After about 3500 ratings I can usually find maybe 3 or 4 beers I’ve never had before. Price wise, you literally cannot find a cheaper pint of craft beer in NYC. $5 for a pint, $5 for 8 oz. of high gravity beers. Luckily for me I have a buddy that lives in the neighborhood so I have an excuse to stop by at least once a month. Love love love this place.

Cool place in a good location. Smallish bar with room for maybe 15, another 6-7 tables. Service was ok, but nothing outstanding or especially warm. Tap list was pretty good and the food was average pub stuff. I would definitely check the tap list next time in town and go if there was something I wanted to try, but wouldn’t go too far out of the way.

Great cozy atmosphere with a damn decent selection of American craft beer of the Lagunitas and Stone ilk with a number of NY locals thrown in. Great saloon feel with real wood from floor to ceiling, but with a definite refined quality

I was very happy to find this place, for 2 reasons: they have a good, frequently changing selection of craft brews, and they sell them for reasonable prices. PB keeps it simple by selling all their beers for 5 bucks a pop, the only difference being the size of the glass, which is smaller for strong or rare brews. Growlers are likewise priced simply and reasonably at either $16 or $19. No more of this business of paying $7.75 for a 8.25 ounce pour of an unusual brew and the like - at The Pony Bar, you see something that looks good, you order it, it is 5 dollars. But watch out if you want to do a growler fill - on a recent visit almost half of what they had on the board was only available by the glass. It is a fairly small and simply set up place, Lighting is low key, and there are a few tables. It draws a pretty good-sized crowd who sometimes get pretty obnoxious. The place is a little small, and it does get crowded - I am sure I am not alone in hoping that this apparently successful business will move to a bigger space before long. The servers were busy but helpful, and still took the time to talk to me. A good place that could be even better.
