awesome food comfortable atmosphere friendly staff – Its awesome to able to go to a bar for Sunday Football and get great wings and a loud rowdy fun crowd and come back next week for a (hungover) saturday afternoon and be able to sit around for hours in a booth and get a satisfying brunch (french toast!) and enough mimosas to make sure you get nothing productive accomplished that day. They have a beer garden in the back that I love for after work drinks. And it's one of the few bars I've been to in the neighborhood where the waitresses and bartenders actually recognize you when you come back.
Good times. – The food was really good. Tons of TVs showing just about every sport known to man. Great atmosphere. Overall a great place to head out in the city.
cheers to the pig – My friends and i have been patrons of the pig as we like to call it for several months now.We usaully get there at least once a week. The staff is always very friendly The waitresses remember who we are and always a big hello.The food is great with the specials always changing you never get bored with the menu.The tv's always playing whatever is going on in the world of sports.With all the places in manhattan finally a place with a personallity. So eat drink and be merry. The place were everybody knows your name cheers.
A Great Sports, Food and Drink Haven – I have been to the Blind Pig several times and have been truly impressed. The food is certainly much better than most Pubs around town, with the Mac and Cheese as well as cheesesteak wrap being two of my favorites. The sandwiches are delicious and can also be ordered as wraps. The menu is creative and certainly raises the bar in NYC in regards to restaurants of it's ilk. It is spacious, yet because it does great business, there is always a pleasant buzz. Being a Red Sox fan in a NY can be tough, but not at the Blind Pig. They are always willing to cater to their patrons, which is not always easy with all the sports from which to choose. I have been alone, as well as in big parties and have always been treated with respect, as well as receiving great service. The bartenders are very attentive as well as the waitstaff. I have been to a lot of sports bars in NYC and the Blind Pig is truly a place of destination for me. I eat out a lot, so many menus can become boring in short order, however I always look forward to an evening at the Blind Pig. One more thing, the wines are terrific!!
Owner/Manager is a Blind Pig – Last night I was invited out by some friends to enjoy the Olympics at what was supposed to be a nice bar pub in the Village. At the start of the evening, things moved smoothly, average bar food, nice pints of beer and a friendly waitress. Throughout the night myself, friends and the customers around us were wondering why out of the 7 screens the place uses for sporting showcases, why was the Olympics only being shown on 2 screens? I mean really it is the Olympics, they only happen once every 4 years! Finally we got a 3rd screen going and out of no where someone changes the channel. The 3 tables next to us, all start to hoot and hollar, it is a bar! So yes, boos and loud shouts did come from the customers. Wow! Were we rudly awakened to a monster "bar owner/manager" screaming at us about how he can do whatever the hell he wants (not to mention other ridiculous language, considering we are the customers!)! Seriously, the bling pig was in action! It was a sad showcase for a bar that can become one of the coolest sports hang outs on 14th street. Too bad I will never go back, and the poor waitress that has to deal with that pig of an manager.
Great Space...Ugly Managerial Attitude – This place has great potential. I like the bar and all the TV's and screens. I have been there twice and both times the bartenders did not seem to care that our group was watching a sporting event and changed the channel. Specifically last night, we were watching the Olympics and the manager/owner changed the channel to some old Yankees game. A couple of tables wanted to have changed back and yes, we booed. He started yelling at us that it was his bar and that basically he can do whatever he wants. Well it's our money that is keeping the place going. Our waitress was attentive and we were sorry she had to work for such an ogre. Food was okay.
Not a good place to hang-out at. – My friends and I usually hang out by the village, but decided to try a new area. Heard about Blind Pig and decided to give it a try. Worst decision ever, I was there recently and the manager was so rude. My friends and I were just having a good time, and the manager decided to be rude to us and kicked us out. The reason being...we were being loud and roudy in a "family style restaurant". Hello? Does he not realize this is a bar and ppl are drinking and trying to have a good time. Maybe this guy ought to be guarding prisoners in a penitentiary and NOT in a BAR.
WORST PLACE EVER – I was there Friday night with a group of my girlfriends. The manager was rude and the service was only okay.
This place is infamous for being rude to it's customers. Do not go here... DO NOT... there's a million bars in the city and this one is not worth your time, money or tips..
Terrible customer service – Manager was very rude for some reason when we asked him about the bar. I did not like the service at all, very unfriendly place and service, which I would hope would be better considering how below average the food was. We will not visit or recommend, there are plenty of places in this city worth my patronage. Next.
Tried A Couple of TImes, MIserable Both Times – I had been to blind pig before on a date. It took forever to get a drink and was not crazy with the staff. But I believe in giving everything a fair shake so went there again when friends were in town. I have to say it was even worse than before. The bartender was very rude, took a good 15 minutes to stand there and curse out a patron while there were like a million people waiting to be served. Now mind you I am a bartender myself and know how things work. But the bartender here was on a serious power trip. After waiting politely for half an hour at the bar for a drink i just gave up and left.
