My fiance and I stumbled upon this gem whilst hunting for parking in hells kitchen. That being said once I got a spot, I needed a real beer. This haunt had just, I mean just opened up and word hadn't gotten round, so lucky me! I hear it draws quite the crowd these days.

Solid line up, with plenty of regional goodies. Cask had just been put on, always refreshing to see. I recall sixpoint having the majority of the tap handles, that was what I was drinking at least.

Bartender was friendly and helpful. Glassware was clean and presented nicely. Was even told, "your stout should sit a few before enjoying it, or wrap your hands around it." Thanks for the tip, I can imagine their location drawing in the type who'd wonder "what do you mean no bud?"

Food was tasty and pretty fairly priced. That's really all I can say about it, you have to remember I had just spent an hour looking for parking, food wasn't what took precedence.

If, and I mean IF I am on that side of town again, the pony will be my first stop. Hope for nothing but the best for them and look forward to seeing them again.

I really like the crowd at the Pony Bar HK. Nice folks, local, neighborhood. Not too touristy. Every time I've been there it has been moderately busy, but I've never had to wait long for a seat at a table or a bar stool.

The draught line up is good, but I've seen better. I was actually surprised (and somewhat disappointed) to see a bunch of Harpoon beers and the like being poured.

The food was just okay. I guess you wouldn't expect to grab a great meal in this size/type place, and I was thankful to be able to grab a little nosh at the bar, but my pulled pork was no better or worse than store-bought.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting, albeit your average beer pub look - lots of wood, beer signs, etc.

The service was friendly. I don't know how knowledgeable they are as to what they're serving, as I did not have any questions about the beers on tap that night.

Not a ton of taps (~20), but everything on tap was stuff you don't see at any other bar. Went on a Saturday night and it wasn't packed, but most seats were taken. Best part was all beers were $6. Great beer and it only cost $6!?! They also had two TVs playing the world cup! You wouldn't think that is all that impressive, but most "Craft beer" bars tend to ditch the TVs to promote conversation, but I enjoy my conversations with the game on in the background while I drink great beer. I'm going to make it a point to stop at the Pony Bar every time I hit the city.
