Never having heard or been to this establishment before, I was excited to find out more about their service and their selection of spirits and "bar food" menu. My long time h.s. friend was hosting her birthday gathering here and she selected it because it was close to her home.

Overall, the bar seemed to be a university crawl for young men. There was a dingy pool table in the back that pretty much sums up the entire experience at this place.

Upon entering the bar, I was barked at by what seemed to be the bar security or fake police. He wanted to know "if we were there for a private party?" By the looks of things, with only a two room layout, if we were heading to the back, and waving to our friends, a common lad would put 1 and 1 together to recognize that YES, we were heading to the private party.

After entering the party, we took one of the open tables reserved for the private party, close to the pool table. To my surprise, a game had started and I was quickly asked to move so a shot could take place. About 5 minutes later, the request came again. At this time, I felt it only necessary to clarify that we were in a private area, reserved for a party and that the request to move so his billiard game could continue was becoming grossly rude. This pool playing, bar fly stepped out with his chick sidekick and then returned with the idea to get the fake security involved. Needless, to say this fake security was of a one race, which happens to be the same race as myself. He claimed, ??the owner has requested for us to move and to retrieve the entire table, so a pool game can begin without any disturbances?.

Do I need to go on? Stoned Crow here a minor FYI, your bar is not presentable, your menu is overpriced and is served on paper plates! Are we at a picnic in elementary school? Get a dishwasher and real dishes, it??s almost 2010 for crying out loud. I have three words of encouragement, STEP IT UP!

Pros: location

Cons: everything else

great little place & cant beat the drink prices. however, i will never go back again!! the one bartender was rude and accussed us of not tipping him and didnt want to serve us. of course he was completely wrong! you'll notice him as the one who he claims was "born and raised in nyc" so therefore he knows what he's talking about. i would suggest only going here if you want to deal with an overconfident, rudeand obnoxious bartender who deserves a swift kick to the curb!!

Pros: cheap eats, drinks

Cons: horrible service

I truly loved hanging out at the Stoned Crow. It seems like it would be a little hole in the wall, because if you don't know where it is you might trip over it! But it's so great, great service and great environment. If you're looking for a place to mellow out and hang out w. friends, this is it! They used to have a pool table in the back room, which was an added bonus (but I haven't been there in a while so I'm not sure it's still there!)

I love that bars like this still exist in the ever upscaling Village. Vinyl chairs with square cafe/diner like tables. Dark and quiet (except when someone's had too much) Good place to hang and talk and the jukebox is incredible.

I never knew there was a bar here. It looks like a residential street in Greenwich Village. Nothing but townhouses... Lo and behold, there it is. A few steps downstairs, the bouncer sits discreetly inside and asks EVERYBODY (including me... I cudda kissed him!) for ID. A narrow bar area opens into a more spacious back room with a pool table. It wasn't crowded. Maybe people just don't know it's there.

The music is soft enough to talk, and the crowd is NYU-ish, but not obnoxiously so. The food is okay and a night of drinking will run you about $30 a person, tip included.

It's in my neighborhood, so I'll be back. -- Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers

Pros: not crowed, music soft enough to talk over, pool table, NYU, but not TOO NYU

Cons: Not CHEAP

My burger was bloody, like I luv it, and the fries were good, too.
Like that they have other options if you're not up for a burger.

Pros: Burger, wings

Cons: TV by the door doesn't have cable...please add Onion Rings to the menu.

. . but also the best little-known burger in NYC. Everyone knows the famous ones (Shake Shack, Burger Joint, Corner Bistro) but the Crow is right up there with them. Actually, I like Shake Shack the best but I think the Crow is tied for second with the Bistro and the Joint. In terms of taste and style the Crow is very similar to the Bistro. But without the long wait.

Pros: Underrated burgers, pool table, normal vibe for those who sick of the extremes (clubs on the one hand, dives on the other)

Cons: One pool table and way too many players

.

The Crow is an excellent place to play pool, as long as you can manage to avoid the rudest, most unpleasant bartender in NYC: Tom.

The table is well maintained, and the rules regarding its use are very strict. You can also expect to find excellent shooters there almost any day of the week. There's popcorn for your munchies, and the new kitchen serves up fine pub fare. The decor is wonderful, with classic movie and band posters covering every square inch of the walls.

If Tom is working the bar, however, you'll want to sit in the back and order from the attentive and polite wait-staff.

I recently had a birthday party at the Stoned Crow and I must say that the service was outstanding. The bartender, Patrick, was attentive and on the ball and accomodated a group of about 15 friends. The Stoned Crow is a great place, full of history, a great jukebox, cool memorabilia and the owner Betty, is cordial, gracious and an all round sweetheart. Thank you for making my birthday an excellent, if not blurry, memory.

I (from Dublin, Irl) spent a holiday in NYC a wee while ago and while it was mesmerising I encountered drama Dallas never broadcasted. I stumbled into the Crow and was saved. Una, the raven haired girl(from Dublin too!) who runs the floor gave me sanctaury and a shoulder to bitch & moan on. Betty, the owner gave me the grooviest pics of Keef Richards one could have. I went in for a drink cos i needed one and I left re-invigorated. Hats off to 'em. Juke box rocks also...

Cons: poor Guinness

I've been going to the Crow since '96. I've never had trouble with anybody. Betty is always great. They have a great juke box and a pool table that they keep in immaculate condition.

The food is good.. and reasonably priced. I've always felt comfortable here and have had many great times over the years here.

Thanks Betty!

...what a TERRIBLE bar. After going inside, I felt as if I'd have been better off standing outside looking at the sign for a few hours. If your idea of a good time is to hang out with a bunch of egotistical, misogynistic trust fund college brats, this is the place. Since this place is actually a basement pub, one would think that it would be "down to earth". That was a case of mistaken identity on my part. The food is boring, the drinks are deceptively expensive, and the crowd is wall-to-wall upstarts talking up their worldly exploits. Give me a real proletariat bar anyday over this pompous atmosphere. Oh, and give me a few of those movie posters to take home and put to some good use. Even the posters can't make up for how cheesy this bar is.

Check out the "Crow" if you are looking for a low-key but happening local bar. I find the off nights to be the most fun , you are bound to have an interesting encounter with one of the locals, with single gals galore !!! The happy hour starts at 4pm with $3 beers, and Geoff or Karl always take great care of us. Don't forget the sweet pool table and great juke-box. See you there......

Pros: Low Key, Friendly Locals, $3 beers

Cons: Hidden away

Great dive bar without the crowd of one that has become too popular. Dark and unassuming this basement bar is deceptivly large with it's large wrap bar and cavernous back room. There is something for everyone - great rock/funk/soul jukebox, pool table, GoldenTee and of course cheap booze. A bit off the beaten track, but a great option for that "Where the hell should we go now" dilema at 1am.

.. the bartender told my friends and I to move away from the bar because "he needed the space " and was a total jerk. There was no reason for him to ask us to move since we were a group of six paying customers and the bar was not crowded at all. In fact, there were many empty stools by the bar. Needless to say, if he doesn't want my friends and I there, then we won't be going back.

Thanks Betty for the free picture! And thanks for creating such a great bar - friendly staff, cold beer, nice music! I know I'll always have fun at the Stoned Crow whether we're just getting started or winding down our night!

The Scene
While its boasts may be limited to great mashed potatoes, unpretentious patrons and a decent jukebox, sometimes that's more than enough. In the Stoned Crow's Village basement among the brownstones, you can shoot pool on…
