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.

I used to be a bigger fan of this place until it became apparent that at least one of the two female bartenders (who look pretty similar) is not the friendliest. The place does get crowded around happy hour, but it’s not a coincidence when 5 or 6 different people on different occasions have broached the topic of the bartender being a bitch. I completely agree. I once tried to get my ratings sheet (which they used to keep behind the bar) about 3 different times ... she kept snapping back that she’d get it when she had time. Literally about 40 minutes went by before I finally asked the dude who was sharing the shift with her - he had it in about 15 seconds for me. I was also with jredmond when he had his own little run-in and without getting into details, let’s say it was very uncalled for and not his fault in the least. All that aside, they have a menu up on the wall that is the "OCD person’s dream" - neatly written in big block letters in neon chalk with the ABV next to the name. 20 taps and 2 casks is solid, but for some reason I seem to find myself looking at the same beers on the menu visit after visit. I never see anything outrageous here, but I almost always find something I like. Every beer being $5 is probably their coolest thing. Higher-alcohol beers come in a 7-oz glass. Food is solid but I find the portions to be small. Oh, one last thing - the music is consistently too loud. Not to end the review on a bad note, but I hate having to exert myself every time I want to say any little thing to the person I’m standing right in front of.

Really enjoyed spending a few hours on my first visit to this place. Pleasant sunlit woody space, and very comfortable, relaxed feel from the staff, patrons, etc. Selection was great, service outstanding, and the value was even pretty damn good for monster island. Casks are a plus too.

Hit this place Friday night. Very much a neighborhood type bar. I was able to get a seat at the bar pretty quickly even though it was busy. The service was outstanding. I never had to wait for a beer, the bartender was friendly, and I even got a couple of buybacks which is almost unheard of in this day and age. What also kicks ass is that everything is $5.00 and is either a pint or an 8 oz pour. The tap list itself had some interesting beers and a few diamonds in the rough. Well worth a visit.
