I HATED this place so much I made my first online review – I'm not picky when it comes to bars/restaurants but this place was AWFUL. The place has some great potential but is run horribley. The service, the atmosphere, and the attitude put together makes this place more of an infuriating hassel than a good time. What really did it for me seeing how the place was run. The managers were incompetent, unhelpful, and some of the rudest people I've ever seen operating a business. Save your money and go someplace else. Even drinking out of a paper bag on the curb would have more class than this place.

STAY AWAY!!!! – This is a rael tourist trap! $20 tab before they will take plastic. Bartenders are sloooow. Could not accomodate 15 people with a table or tables. Could not drink in "eating area"

If you're looking to drink and have a good time with some friends at the bar...forget it. 3 or 4 deep with wanna-be jr. executives and their stories how they missed the deal of the day! They just stand there nursing a cosmo or mojito, eyeing the blondes that frequent this place. Better off walking two blocks west and grabbing a seat at a real NYC "mom & pop" saloon.

Excellent Venue – This place is really cool and I must say riding the bull is quite the entertaining. I went here with a large group from work and we had a list at the door, setup by AccessGotham. com.

We were a group of 20 or so and we had a waitress and were placed in a nice location inside. All in all we were given the royal treatment the moment we stepped on line til we left.

I decided to be the first to ride the bull and I got tossed almost instantly but it was so much fun. Great after work place!

Great Pregame Spot! – Johnny Utah's is one of the best places to start off a night in the city. Usually my friends and I setup up an open bar there through AccessGotham. com.

All the girls love riding the mechanical bull and it's quite entertaining watching them do so. The bartenders are all friendly and extremely cute.

The music is excellent too and overall the place has solid vibes.

$20 cover charge on Saturday night???? For what???

Mechanical bull in Midtown - it's definitely a fun idea. Problem is the attitude of the people running it. There was a line waiting to ride, but the staff only took ladies in short skirts, and black people. I get that we all want look at the ladies, but -- some fairness please? This is not an exclusive club.

I want two hours of my life and my $20 back!

Good happy hour crowd – Pretty good for after work drinks. A little too crowded at times, but at least if you go, you'll probably have a good time.

Johnny Utah's is awesome – I actually only went here because my friend and I saw a dressed up person in a bull outfit and saw the signing that said, "Nightly bull riding" and we had to go!

You didn't need money or anything to get in and ride the bull. Money was only for drinks and food.

If you don't want food and/or drinks, it's free. So I'm always for that! It was 8pm and PACKED. You could hardly walk in there. But I will be going there for my next b-day and every other time I'm in NYC. I rode the bull and enjoyed it. It was awesome! Great experience and fulfilled something on my bucket list. "Riding a mechanial bull". :-)
